“Schiuma” means foam in Italian, and Masseria Schiuma got its name because of its close proximity to the sea. A lush natural area with fruit trees and olive groves just outside it.
The farm was restored a few years ago, with its new proprietors blending their own unique aesthetic with its original character. The result is an homage to craftsmanship, Danish design and collected ephemera.
There are six double rooms, two of which are large enough to accomodate three people. Each room has its own bath and toilet. The double beds are large and comfortable, and the bigger rooms have extra good single beds.
Italy’s heel, also known as the country’s pantry because of its red soil, rich produce and otherworldly herbs.
Thanks to its porous and mineral-rich limestone soil, proximity to the sea and scorching hot summers, Puglia is also where Italy’s most delicious food is produced. Bunches of herbs dusted with salt from the air; figs that thrive in sandy coastal fields; and peppers of heavenly sweetness. Fancy it is not, but bountiful it is.
In 2014, Pernille and Lars Lembcke purchased Masseria Schiuma. As they got to know the area and started growing their own produce, they discovered facets of Puglia that deserve recognition not only within Italy, but around the world.
That sparked an interest to cultivate, preserve and spread learnings from Puglia to the friends and guests around the world.
