(Small Boutique Hotels) Vignacastrisi
Nice and slow, in Salento
Three reasons why you'll love it here
- A period residence within minutes of the beaches of Salento
- A swim in the pool in the delicately scented orange grove
- Peace and technology: internet yes, television no!
For centuries Palazzo Guglielmo played an important role in the development of the rural town of Vignacastrisi: providing work for its inhabitants and contributing to the gradual economic growth of the town.
The Palazzo, recently transformed into an exclusive small boutique hotel, still conserves the signs of its original agricultural vocation. The rooms of today's residence were, in fact, once used as stores, stables, kitchens, and lodgings for the farm workers.
Peace in Puglia
The hotel's 7 double rooms, 3 suites and 2 apartments are accessed via the pretty internal courtyard of the palazzo ora via the garden. All guestrooms are elegantly decorated using a pleasing combination of traditional furnishings and modern-day amenities.
Whilst Wi-Fi internet connectivity is available throughout the building, the owners have deliberately chosen to leave Palazzo Guglielmo's bedrooms free of televisions.
A delicious selection of Puglian specialties is served in the beautiful restaurant overlooking the internal courtyard each morning. A sweet breakfast, a light lunch or a gourmet dinner with the most delicious delicacies of Salento culinary tradition.
Relaxing - Salento-style
Three large halls on the first floor of the small boutique hotel Palazzo Guglielmo's library, reading room, and lounge bar, this last the ideal place in which to enjoy a glass of one of the excellent wines produced in the Salento area.
Palazzo Guglielmo's halls and terraces, provide lovely venues for elegant social events, wine tastings, and even cooking lessons.
The pool in the orange grove
Take a stroll through the gardens which encircle Palazzo Guglielmo, and you'll soon come across a large orange grove: the exquisitely scented setting for the hotel's gorgeous little swimming pool and outdoor seating area.
