A former oil mill surrounded by ancient olive trees located between Ostuni and the beautiful Puglian coast. The B&B offers three beautifully restored and spacious suites.
How would you describe Masseria Moroseta in a nutshell?
Masseria Moroseta is a white stone farmhouse standing proudly on the ridge with views towards the sea. It’s a charming bed & breakfast with six rooms in a 5 hectare organic olive grove near Ostuni, the white town of Puglia.
How would you describe the atmosphere and the architecture?
It has a very relaxing atmosphere. There are a lot of private spaces where guests can lounge if they don’t feel like going out. The architecture works well with the sun when it hits at different times during the day. It reflects off the walls, creating Pantone-like color patterns.
What was your inspiration to open a small bed & breakfast in Puglia?
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.
To you personally, what is so special about Masseria Moroseta?
It’s special in the sense that it’s a modern version of a typical masseria. Masserias were known to be closed spaces surrounding a courtyard. We respect that design, but we’ve modernized it to offer more privacy to our guests.
And we are not only a bed & breakfast but we are also a farm producing olive oil, vegetable and different fruits. We invite our guests to tour our farm and we show them how our organic olive oil is made.
Who should stay at Masseria Moroseta and who shouldn’t?
Our bed & breakfast is a great place for couples who are looking for a private getaway. Due to the size of the masseria it is also perfect for a group of friends who want to rent the entire place.
I don’t think it is a great place for families, though. It’s more a relaxing retreat, and there are not many activities for children other than the pool.
