Owner picture


Caroline Groszer, a German-Swiss business economist and photographer, and mother to a teenage son, has lived in Apulia for several years. In 2001, she transformed an estate of Trulli huts into a holiday home. Some years later she sold this property and opened the Masseria Alchimia, fulfilling her dream of founding an apartment hotel. Besides the holiday home in Ostuni she also offers an apartment in a small palazzo in the town of Fasano (Palazzina Alchimia). In all her guest houses, the passionate hostess has successfully combined her managerial skill and interest in art and design. Caroline Groszer lives in the Masseria herself and is more than happy to share insider tips with her guests.
