Also avaialble for: Filming and Events


This palace built in 1600 is a place to enjoy authentic village life in minimalist and welcoming spaces that bear the unmistakable stamp of British architect Andrew Trotter. Co-designed by Marcelo Martínez, it has been restored preserving the historic character of the house with beautiful baroque details and interiors with arches and vaulted ceilings.

It is located in the city of Salento, in the province of Lecce, belonging to the region of Apulia, the Tuscany of southern Italy, in the heart of the Salentine Greece, a place full of legends and mysteries. With just 6,000 inhabitants, it is to enjoy cycling among olive trees and to visit charming villages such as Alberobello, inscribed on Unesco’s World Heritage List for its picturesque buildings dating back to prehistoric times.
