Masseria Moroseta is a charming bed & breakfast with six rooms amongst a 5 hectares organic olive grove between the Mediterranean and the white town of Ostuni.
It is simple, peaceful and magical.
How would you describe Tra Cielo e Mare in a nutshell?
Overlooking the main square of Vieste’s marina, Tra Cielo e Mare is a historic building that has been restored with a contemporary Mediterranean aesthetic. With sweeping views of the sea, it is a privilege to be inside the building. I always think “how lucky I am to be here right now”.
What is the story behind Tra Cielo e Mare, what was your inspiration to create it?
Pasquale and Carmela De Candia are the team behind the restoration of Tra Cielo e Mare, which was driven by their love of design and beauty, as well as the area itself. They preserved the historic atmosphere of the building while drawing on natural materials, such as oak, stone and handcrafted fabrics. They then entrusted the property to my partner and me, who manage the day-to-day running of the hotel.

It is peaceful and magical, simple but charming.
On the first floor, there are two rooms with balconies that offer views across the sea and the piazza.

On the second floor are two smaller rooms, each with a window overlooking the square, plus two superior rooms with a direct view of the sea and the lighthouse.

Surrounded by Gargano National Park, Vieste is on the east coast of Puglia, around 1.5 hours’ drive from Foggia. Tra Cielo e Mare is in the old town of Vieste, overlooking the Piazza della Marina. Everything is just a few minutes away on foot, including restaurants, the beach and sightseeing attractions.
The coastline of Gargano National Park is always changing and never boring. It lies between the sea and the hills, with the landscape covered by maritime pines.
