Masseria Moroseta, Puglia
The European summer beckons and sometimes it brags. An authentic Mediterranean experience for your wander-list, Masseria Moroseta offers elegant, sparse, whitewashed interiors and a rustic yet luxurious Puglian experience.
Masseria Moroseta sits proudly atop a ridge, nestled amongst an olive grove with views of the sparkling sea beyond and overlooking the ‘white’ town of Ostuni. The boutique accommodation offers a contemporary take on the traditional Puglian farmhouse and has been built according to established architectural designs using traditional building methods and local materials. The working farm produces its own organic olive oil and offers six suites, all with private gardens or terraces.
The whitewashed exterior, clean lines and sparse furnishings amplify the views and imbue a relaxed vibe. Vaulted ceilings and stone floors provide a breezy respite even on the hottest days. The communal spaces encourage kinship but there are also intimate nooks for solitude. And a large inviting outdoor pool of course to while away the long summer days.
Masseria Moroseta is the first architectural assignment for the uber-creative Andrew Trotter. Trotter’s design files include working with Anouska Hemple, Yohji Yamamoto, and launching Openhouse – first as a design store in Barcelona and evolving to magazine format in 2014. In 2012 he was asked to design a new building to become the hotel, Masseria Moroseta, which opened in 2016. Bravo.
