Masseria Luco, in the territory of Martina Franca - Taranto, represents one of the most striking examples of a traditional farm in Puglia.
Built in two different historical periods, between the eighteenth and nineteenth century, Masseria Luco is a typical farm "courtyard" composed of two separate and opposing structures: the imposing farmhouse, once the main house, and the old "cowshed", a group of 12 trulli built in the shape of a horseshoe, once used as stables and today the home of the owners.
The consecrated chapel of considerable historical interest, is rich in frescoes of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century, attributed to the school of Carella and to Carella himself.
Next to the enchanting structure you can find a beautiful farmyard, from which you can see the picturesque landscape of the Itria Valley, and an extremely rare example of a beehive, that was once used and now has become a beautiful relic.
Surrounded by several hectares of forest that make it an oasis of peace, the Masseria Luco is the ideal place for those who love nature, animals and the charm of the ancient architecture.
Several articles have been dedicated to the Masseria, from the "GruppoUmanesimo della Pietra", which has enhanced its historical value and extraordinary beauty, from nationally known experts such as the photographer Angelo Golizia, who chosed it as image of the cover of his book "Farms" published by Leonardo International, and by national newspapers including "Gente Viaggi", "Capital", "Ville e Casali", "GioiaTavola", and "Elle Decor".
