Italy’s masserias

Italy’s masserias

Dotted about southern Italy are ‘masserias’ — lovely ancient farmhouses. We stayed in one in Puglia, and it’s well worth making the effort to find one of these old working farms.

Breakfast consisted of produce made or reared on the farm: eggs, jam, bread, cheese, not to mention five different home-made cakes to choose from.

We were greeted by a group of assorted dogs and cats, who seemed somehow to know that our van contained plenty of goodies for dogs and cats to eat. ‘If we all look pretty and are ever so welcoming, maybe there will be a snack or two to share?’

Well, we couldn’t resist them, could we? Here you can see the bravest of them, who stayed long enough for a photo. What you can’t see are three more ginger cats and three tiny dogs.

Yummy treats

    Hi Guests,

    it was a really pleasure to meet and host you in our property.
    As you saw in our Masseria Salinola in Ostuni, we love animals too much.
    Thank you so much for that nice picture of Leo, one of the our bravest ginger cats!

    All the best for your so interesting work!

    Take care,

      We are really looking forward to returning later next year and then, maybe, we will be able to get pictures of all the animals on our website.

We'd love to hear from you
