Design is all about the feeling (and function, of course, but feeling). So, to me, seeing a gorgeous space doesn't mean much if it doesn't get me butterflies in my stomach. To make me dream, project myself inside the photos, actually try to feel the experience, smell the smells, touch the fabrics, sense the sun rays coming through the windows on my skin.
This is exactly what happened when these photos of Masseria Moroseta landed in my inbox a few days ago. I had to instantly pause what I was doing at the moment and stare. Just stare. This place is like it just popped out of my designer dreams. It is so close to what I'd like to build one day for myself on the southern Cretan mountains. The Puglian landscape is similar to the Cretan one; the harsh sun washed volumes, the stark nature, the wise olive trees, the blinding blue skies, and the crystal turquoise sea waters, very typical Mediterranean indeed.
Quoting Carlo, the owner of this beauty, 'Masseria Moroseta is 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. We are quite unique in that sense'.
Quite a place to spend a few days to relax and unwind, don't you agree? Read more about Masseria Moroseta as well as book your stay here.
