Wedding Fever!

Spring is here! Welcome to our favorite wedding season!!
While Coccaro Beach is getting in shape for this summer and a couple of high end glamour parties by the sea, here’s how we started off this year: One of the most congenial wedding ceremonies ever – extra simple but extremely chic and most extraordinary at the same time. The swiss german wedding couple, longtime Coccaro guests, didn’t want any fuss – but a nice little boat and a couple of intimate friends and family. While the bride was waiting aboard the yacht, the groom and his testimonial were approaching in a fisherboat. A highly curious crowd was waiting in the Savelletri harbor and watching the pittoresque scenery, certainly clapping hands and congratulating wildly when the newlyweds landed ashore!
Here’s a few impressions for you to just enjoy – or to take as an inspiration: Masseria Torre Coccaro, Maizza or our Beachclub by the adriatic sea could be THE perfect place for you, too, to TIE THE KNOT!

Puglia Wine & Land 2014

Masseria Torre Coccaro and Torre Maizze have just hosted the fifth edition of “Puglia Wine and Land.”
Buyers and journalists from around the world met here to taste the best local wines, surrounded by magnificent countryside and the blossoming of an early spring.

Eating and drinking well is very important for everybody in Puglia and the wine is a key part of this philosophy.
Some of the most important wines of southern Italy as the “Negroamaro” or “Primitivo” born right here.

Just make a visit to the wine cellars at the Masserias to discover the variety of wines stocked here to make a dinner or a relaxing aperitivo really special!

 

Women Only: March 8

Born at the beginning of the 900 in the U.S., International Women’s Day in Italy is associated with mimosa, a delicate but colourful and energetic flower blossoming in the first days of March. At the Masseria we`re celebrating Women’s Day in a special way every year. The swimwear fashion show in the spa of Torre Coccaro for example was something to remember!
This year we’re offering an exclusive and intimate hedonisnim package, tailormade for our women guests and their best friends: A wellness package for body and soul to wipe away the stress and celebrate the beautiful things such as friendship in life.
Breathing pure nature, stretching out one’s mind and enjoying our chefs’ and bartenders’ delicacies you’ll understand what Sophia Loren meant by saying:
Every woman will look at her best if she feels good in her own skin. It is not a matter of clothes and makeup, the only important thing is the way she shines”.

Un caffè con calma: Bocafe, Monopoli

Italians don’t seem to appreciate much one thing that many northern Europeans just LOVE: Hanging around in a nice and cosy coffee bar for hours and having one cappuccino after the other while reading magazines, working on the computer, talking with friends…
While they quickly have their short espresso and tend to leave right after, your favorite coffee shop can easiliy become your second home, don’t you agree?
Well, you don’t need to miss out on that beautiful habit any more while you’re on holiday in the south of Italy. At BOCAFE, right in the center of Monopoli, no more than 10 minutes by car from Coccaro and Maizza, you’d wish to stretch out all day, enjoying huge and comfy armchairs, indulging in a heaven of homemade pastries and more than a dozen yummy coffee delicacies (– including the classics, of course: their cappuccino is fabulous!).
And of course you can remain as long as you wish, in fact you don’t even need to get up to have lunch or dinner some place else because the BOCAFE guys (and girls!) are serving good food, too, like one tasty lunch menu per day and a variety of pugliese dishes for dinner.
Why don’t you put it on your list for your next visit in Puglia? BOCAFE is definitely more than just a coffeeshop. For those who aren’t convinced just yet: Their cocktails and aperitivos will make you feel like heaven – in Monopoli! (Via Mazzini, 25, 080 332 8301)
