January and february are traditional orange picking season in Puglia. The ones growning on the Coccaro and Maizza estate are smaller and rounder than the famous “Washington”, incredibly tasty though, juicy and sweet. Our gardeners are picking only the best and ripest fruits to later on make marmelade out of them (we’ll keep you posted on the recipe of course, stay tuned!!). The rest will be used as famous “spremuta”: freshly squeezed orange juice. Yummie!
Le MasserieMasseria Torre Coccaro and Masseria Torre Maizza are two five stars luxury resorts of Puglia, Italy. Not two ordinary luxury resorts, but two authentic 500 years old manor houses remodelled with high architectural standards and respect for historical heritage.
Surrounded by centuries-old olive trees, enhanced by exclusive pools (some suites have private ones), Aveda SPA, botanical gardens, the zero impact Coccaro Golf Club, manège, top level restaurants and many other amenities, our ancient estates are like a small town, nevertheless a unique and loving family!
In the center of Puglia we take care of a part of your heart.
