Step Back in Time to the 1700's
The 18th century doorway of Palazzo De Castro leads to a large courtyard and grand staircase, topped by the coat of arms belonging to the noble family which owns the palazzo, depicting 5 towers arranged in a cross pattern.
Open the antique 19th century doors in gold leaf with their original keyholes, and you'll feel transported directly 200 years into the past.
Warm yourself in front of the roaring fireplace in the elegant comunal salon, relax on the luxurious sofa, and enjoy your vacation in this timeless place!
The Luxury of the Past
Contessa, Vicere', Ancella, Don Francisco e Don Pedro: five sumptuous Baroque-style rooms, decorated with period furniture primarily from the beginning of the 1900's, frescoed ceilings, and oil paintings.
Every detail has been carefully curated, blending historic elegance with the functionality of modern amenities, including free wifi, memory foam mattresses, and flat screen tvs.
In the historic Contessa room, the original vanity table where noble ladies would once arrange their intricate hairstyles still stands. The room also has its original flooring and two guard windows once used to check on any movement outside the palazzo.
Palazzo De Castro welcomes guests with special care, including a charming washbasin scented with rose and jasmine petals so travelers can freshen up like a count and countess in the 18th century.
To begin you day off right, a generous breakfast awaits in the dining room or with room service, including local organic products, so you will be ready to set off and discover the most beautiful corners of Puglia, including its Baroque towns, vast olive groves, and gorgeous beaches.
