It’s hard to believe that we are already into August and the reality of not travelling this summer has finally sunk in. I had every intention of making the best of the situation and had planned to explore Montreal with the fresh eyes of a tourist. Unfortunately I allowed myself to be distracted and I have not had a lot of time to just relax. Lock down and quarantine have really put a few things into perspective though, and highlighted things that were previously taken for granted including the freedom to travel and explore other countries. To help to combat my sadness over the lack of travel in my life at the moment, I have started to dream about and plan trips that I would LOVE to take in the future.
Today’s Vacation Dreaming post is very special to me as it is a destination that I have been dreaming about for many years. Masseria Moroseta is a modern farmhouse in Puglia. Set on five hectares of organic olive fields, it boasts gorgeous views of the sea and the city of Ostuni.
Designed by one of my favourite designers Andrew Trotter, Masseria Moroseta design is both modern with traditional elements incorporated throughout. It seems like the perfect refuge for the weary to relax, rejuvenate and rebalance.
The rooms are minimal and clean but have a modern twist to the decor. They encourage rest and relaxation while not being overly stimulating.
The outdoor spaces throughout the property are incredible. From the chic but cozy pergola, to the gorgeous outdoor dining spaces, there is even an olive grove on the property. The olive oil from the grove is organic and is offered to guests and clients of the property and helps them to learn more about the flavours of the land, the history or the property and it’s traditional work. My absolute favourite space is the swimming pool. With the olive groove in the background the pool area looks incredible. Masseria Moroseta even offers yoga classes around the pool. I have have spent many hours dreaming of visiting Masseria Moroseta and in my dreams most of those hours have been spent at this pool.
The icing on this proverbial dream vacation is the food. The chef at Masseria Moroseta is the supremely talented Giorgia Eugenia Goggi. One glance at her Instagram (@giorgiaeugeniagoggi) showcases her great eye for gorgeous foods shots, her talent for cooking with seasonal foods and her creativity with always creating new twists on classic foods. Cooking classes are offered on site using exclusively organic and raw materials.
Masseria Moroseta is a dream destination for me, one that I hope to experience for myself in the future. From the design to the food to the many amenities it has to offer, it’s easy to see why Masseria Moroseta is the perfect place to escape to.
I hope that you have a beautiful day and stay safe! XXS
