Terra Sessana cultural association

The desire to share a peaceful place immersed in a suggestive landscape of the Itria valley and to recover some of the cultural and gastronomic traditions of Puglia are the founding principles of the cultural association Terra Sessana.

Its intent is to create meeting opportunities for testing typical dishes and regional wines meanwhile enjoying the surrounding countryside. These occasions are enlivened by live music, songs, dances and traditional performances.

During the dinner will be served a variety of vegetarian dishes of the rural tradition of Puglia, made with wild vegetables and herbs and others organic ingredients mostly from our garden.

The large kitchen with the outdoor stone oven offers the opportunity to assist in the preparation of the food. The rural environment, the open spaces, the sounds, the smells and the colors of the nature, are the perfect frame of these events that give moments of joy, peace and harmony.

The Puglia/Molise region

Puglia, also known as Apulia, is in the south of Italy; the heel of Italy's boot. The region is not one of Italy's traditional tourist destinations, but it is becoming increasingly popular as travellers discover the area's varied charms: baroque towns, white-washed trullo houses, olive groves and orchards, blue sea and beaches, plenty of sunshine and excellent cuisine.

Puglia is a food and wine lover’s paradise. One reason is that the fresh produce is of such high quality. Indeed, many of the basic elements of the Italian kitchen originate from Puglia.

Many quality wines are produced here, 10% of the European production to be more precise with the best reds from Salento region.

Above all, it is the dramatic and varied natural beauty - including some of italy’s most spectacular coastline that will leave it’s impression, as will the warm welcome of the hospitable people of southern Italy.

Puglia's most striking tourist attraction - because it is so unique - is the trulli district, around Alberobello (a UNESCO World Heritage site). A trullo is a simple dry-stone-walled building with a domed roof topped by a cone. They are dotted around the green Valle d'Itria, and in Alberobello the town's large clusters of white-washed trulli create an unusual and memorable scene. Also striking, in a more sophisticated style, is Lecce, a town famed for its baroque beauty: all golden stone and elegant seventeenth-century architecture with riots of cherubs and foliage.

On the whole, the smaller towns of Puglia, and the countryside, make better holiday destinations than the big port cities. Martina Franca, Locorotondo, Cisternino and Ostuni are all picturesque hilltop towns scattered around the Valle d'Itria. Along the coast, Otranto is one of the most attractive seaside resorts, with a picturesque old town and blue waters.

Puglia is served by two airports at Bari and Brindisi and most of the region can be reached from these airports within 1 hours drive.

Ostuni

Ostuni, town of the Alto Salento, is located in a panoramic site on three hills which view on the coastal Murgia. Its name come from the greek “Astu–neon”, new town, built by the Messapi in the early 1000 a.C., on the remaining of more ancient ruins. Today it is known as the “White City”, for the shine of its houses of the old town centre and it is an important and unique example of the south Italian architecture.

On the top of the hill is the Cattedrale the most important monument of Ostuni. Built in the XV century, in the late gothic style, it has a huge variety of decorations. The interior of the church is dated back 1700 and the square in front of the church hosts the elegant palazzo Vescovile built between the XVI and XVIII centuries.
