Masseria Moroseta In Puglia

View all 29 Photos

Inspired by farmhouses of the past, this beautiful house provides a modern take on vernacular architecture while paying homage to the rustic buildings of the Puglia region. Built on a plot of land with olive trees of up to 500 years old, the structure succeeds in integrating into the rural environment naturally. The hotel was designed by Andrew Trotter Studio after a three-year process of studying the local architecture and local materials, as the owner wanted a contemporary space that would blend into the landscape seamlessly.

Masseria Moroseta is located in the countryside, in a gorgeous area close to the sea and a short drive away from several medieval towns. The structure maintains the traditional layout of age-old farmhouses, with a large interior courtyard and rooms arranged around this common space. The stone floors, walls, and vaulted ceilings maintain a comfortable and cool temperature inside, even in the searing Italian summer heat. The six rooms have private outdoor areas; three give access to gardens and the others have terraces that overlook the olive grove. A central staircase leads to the roof terrace, where guests can admire the breathtaking sea views. A large pool and a spa offer the ideal space for relaxation. The materials used throughout are both traditional and local: sandstone tuff, stones recycled from the excavation stage and wooden furniture. As a working farmhouse, Masseria Moroseta offers a genuine rural experience to its guests. The organic vegetables, eggs and stone-pressed olive oil are produced on site, while meat is sourced locally and fish comes from the sea, freshly caught each morning. You can make a booking for this summer on the official website, or visit during the month of October to see the olive harvest. Photography by Salva Lopez.
