Masseria Moroseta: A white stoned Italian dream
Masseria Moroseta is a charming five hectare organic olive grove that lies on the coast of Ostuni, Italy. A white stoned palace of peace and serenity, the boutique hotel is a converted farmhouse that was built upon the brillance of architect Andrew Trotter.
The six room hospitality space provides an architectural landscape of one of Italy's most serene views; the beaches of Puglia. Owner, Carlo explains that “I always had the dream to work the land to produce food, vegetables or olive oil. So when I visited Puglia on holiday a few years ago, I fell in love with the place and decided to follow my dream. We have more than 600 olive trees and we produce our own organic olive oil. At some point we then decided to add six rooms to our farm as well.”
Modernising a traditional masseria, the unique space is a community friendly business as it was built using locally made second hand furniture, local farm produce and antique finds all within the Puglia area. Deeply rooted in its cultural characteristics, the converted farmhouse is minimally adorned through the use of sleek interiors and a monochromatic colour palette. Hints of the hotels authenticity sparks through it's old school tap systems and beautifully decayed stone. Hosting six rooms and suites, some with private gardens and some with a field view terrace, Masseria Moroseta is a Celine campaign waiting to happen.
