Masse­ria Moroseta

OS­TUNI, ITALY

GQ (Australia) - - GQ TASTE + TRAVEL -

Steeped in the pep­pery fra­grance of wild myr­tle that’s some­times in­ter­rupted by the Adri­atic’s salty breath, this Masse­ria – which is Ital­ian for farm­house – could have been built with In­sta­gram in mind. But be­yond its blind­ing white walls, prickly pear cacti and the res­i­dent bull­dog, Beppe, the Masse­ria Moroseta’s magic lies in its sim­plic­ity – and kitchen. It’s menu-less, only serv­ing what’s fresh on the day, and be­ing a work­ing farm, guests are also in­vited to par­tic­i­pate in the har­vest. Set among a five­hectare olive grove, it’s about as dreamy as re­al­ity gets. BEST BIT Fan­tas­tic cook­ing classes and a com­mu­nal kitchen ta­ble en­cour­age in­tro­duc­tions. HOW MUCH? Clas­sic rooms start at ap­prox. $235 per night, with suites around $315. Break­fast in­cluded. masse­ri­amoroseta.it
