Give yourself the gift of time. Today it is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves: achieving harmony also comes from this, from carving out a space to take care of the body and mind. And it is precisely time that is the most valuable asset of the Tenuta Mosè , a micro-world enclosed within the white walls of an Apulian masseria where beauty, taste and art come together in harmony. Here one can enjoy the pleasure of living well, which translates into a restful, carefree stay from dawn to dusk, made up of attention and emotions, according to the ancient concept of Romanotium.

Or sit in the refined Club House drinking tea, good coffee or enjoying a selection of spirits and cocktails, greeted by the seductive notes of an old gramophone.
