Wedding Venues & Accommodation
Tenuta Monacelle is a historically unique Italian wedding venue in Puglia, where tradition meets modern comfort and history is never far away
Tenuta Monacelle is a countryside hotel resort located on the green hills of Selva di Fasano in Puglia Italy.
Tenuta Monacelle consists of a 20-hectar property, which is made up of a set of cone-roofed ‘Trullo’ buildings and 6 tufa-stone ‘Masseria’ villas (Italian for country house). This fascinating wedding venue in Puglia, also includes a state-of-the-art swimming pool, 2 car parks, 1 bus parking area, 3 bars, 3 restaurants, 4 conference halls, a massage room and a cherry orchard with 900 trees.
The oldest area of Tenuta Monacelle consists of 28 “Trullo” buildings built in 1790 as a monastery for some Benedictine nuns. It is the ideal place for a destination wedding in Italy.
Everything in the old hamlet reminds us of its long past. Places where the nuns used to carry out their daily rural activities can be admired, including the fireplace where bread and other local products were made to cater for local farmers, the chicken coop, and the ‘Cummersa’, a building with a sloping roof used as a little chapel. Parts of the old monastery were turned into our ‘Il Ciliegeto’ restaurant.
Not far from the trulli village, six white buildings called Masseria were recently built, as well as a cutting-edge swimming pool, bars and other facilities.
The legal civil wedding must take place in one of the surrounding municipalities. There is a wide range of places to choose from:
- Monopoli (the town offers two locations for the wedding : one being the city hall, the other is a historic castle by the sea)
- Polignano a Mare
- Alberobello (also here, the town offers two locations for the wedding : the town hall and a historical museum)
