Apulia, Italy. A view of Masseria Moroseta 

In order to reach Masseria Moroseta, designed by British architect Andrew Trotter in Apulia, Italy, one needs to pass through a country area surrounded by ancient olive trees. Entering the uninterrupted light and dark created by the trees standing on the roadside, the noises from Ostuni (a city in the province of Brindisi, Apulia, Editor’s Note) gradually fade away, making room for the silence of nature, that envelops the traveler with its scents and colors. The farmstead, located in the Contrada Lamacavallo, is made of local white tuff: a successful blend of Apulian traditional style and modern architecture.

Surrounded by a 5 ha area scattered with century-old, organic-grown olive trees, the Apulian Masseria enjoys a breathtaking vista of the turquoise sea from one side, and of the Ostuni historic center from the other. Dry stonewalls, cactuses and shrubs of Mediterranean maquis surround the entire building.  Characteristically flat roofs are accessible from an external staircase while windows feature black-varnished frames. Interiors are very simple: whitewashed walls, a few, minimalist wooden furnishings and ethnic rugs matched with beautiful design pieces such as the Arco lamp by Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni and the Eclisse abat jour by Artemide along a series of small, traditional artifacts.   

Masseria Moroseta provides the ideal setting to take a break and recover one’s connection with nature. A sort of relaxation and rural simplicity enclave thanks to its outdoor pool, the wellness area offering treatments based on locally sourced herbs, and yoga courses. That’s not all, though: the Masseria additionally offers bespoke cooking lessons – a juicy opportunity to discover Apulia’s variety of flavors. The rooms feature an easy yet sophisticated style, some of them with private garden, others with panoramic terraces. All bedrooms feature vaulted ceilings and 80 cm thick walls to keep interiors cool on hot summer days. 

If you love to discover ever-new places when you are on holiday, Masseria Moroseta offers its guests the opportunity to choose from a variety of cultural-artistic and wine-and-food events organized in the vicinity of this beautiful farmhouse.
