In the heart of Puglia's countryside, Masseria Moroseta combines modernity and tradition, with a view of the Adriatic Sea.
In the heart of Puglia’s countryside
Masseria Moroseta is a contemporary guesthouse proudly perched on a hill overlooking the Adriatic Sea, near Ostuni, the “white city” in Puglia.
Carlo Lanzini, the owner, asked his friend Andrew Trotter (architect-designer and editor of the lifestyle magazine Openhouse) to design the project. Originally the building was a masseria (a sort of traditional farmhouse) built in 1970 on 12 acres of land planted with century-old olive trees.
Opened in 2016, Masseria Moroseta features a simple white stone architecture, modern and minimalist, which blends perfectly into its environment. The 80 cm thick walls, stone floors and vaulted ceilings were built by craftsmen, using traditional techniques and local resources. Everything is organized around the central courtyard: the living room, the veranda, the staircase leading to the roof terrace and the rooms and suites on each side.
Masseria Moroseta has 6 rooms. There are several styles of rooms, with a living space, a stone sofa, a fireplace, a garden, or a terrace overlooking the meadows. They all have a rustic style bathroom, with a rain shower, hammered copper fixtures, and heavy marble sinks.
Breakfast is prepared with local or home-grown products. Dinner is served around a common table, on ceramic tableware manufactured in the nearby village of Grottaglie. Organic extra-virgin olive oil is produced on site. There are several areas to relax, including the swimming pool with incredible sea views, and the wellness area with its jacuzzi, hammam, and sauna. Yoga classes in the morning or at sunset, cooking classes, and meditation experiences are organized upon request.
Masseria Moroseta is a haven for relaxation and rural simplicity.
