When you come to Masseria Mosca, you might easily forget that the Salento region is by the sea: our guests are always captivated by the scent of almond, pomegranate and mulberry trees, the silvery green expanse of olive groves stretching as far as the eye can see, and the silence broken only by chirping crickets, the wind and singing birds.
Of course, the sea – an enchanting sight not to be missed – is just a few kilometres away, but Masseria Mosca is truly the perfect retreat for holidays devoted to appreciating the simple and exquisite pleasures that we tend to forget.
Masseria Mosca was originally an oil mill in the eighteenth century, and olive oil was produced inside its thick walls of Leccese stone. Today, its millstones have been replaced by comfortable apartments surrounded by a garden with a lawn and a swimming pool, set amidst age-old olive trees, where guests can laze in the sun.
