    Hotel

    A five-star luxury “historical monument” turned hotel, with nine contemporary suites  encased within the ancient walls. Full Concierge service organizing bespoke activities to explore Salento with privileged access. On the outskirts of the town, olive groves that extend beyond sight, surround the most beautiful Italian coastlines, from the white sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters of the Ionian Sea, over to the cliffs and grottos of the dramatic Adriatic coastline.

    Food is at the centre of the reinvention. From the restored 18th-century kitchen garden to private dining in the excavated foundations of a Norman Tower and a state-of-the-art cookery school. The Puglia Culinary Centre is much more than an Italian cookery school. The transformed storehouses attract international students and focus on the eno-gastronomy of Puglia and Italy.
