Lecce - Ultimate place to stay: Palazzo Bozzi Corso

Built in 1775 and situated not far from the Basilica of Santa Croce, today the Palazzo Bozzi Corso is a luxurious hotel de charme dedicated to the memory of Enzo Fiermonte as the Fiermonte Family used to live in this palazzo. The decor of the Palazzo is a combination of classicism and contemporary design, with custom-made furnishings and selected art pieces by Sottsass, Gio Ponti, Mackintosh and Le Corbusier. This historical Palazzo, positioned in the very centre of the Centro Storico, boasts 10 elegant Suites and is open from May until October. Every Suite tells a story, beginning with that  of the two artists Zwobada and Leturneur whose works of art  can be admired  in every hall, through to Fernand Léger and even John Lennon and Yoko Ono( the latter a personal friend of the owners’ mother).  The Palazzo also features an elegant Rooftop terrace with plunge pool and an extraordinary view over the City of Lecce, with its many bell towers, picturesque buildings and unforgettable sunsets. An indoor Spa Wellness area is also available, and nearby are fabulous restaurants to enjoy the famous Salento cuisine.

The Palazzo Bozzi Corso is part of the La Fiermontina Family collection of hotels, and just 5 minutes from Palazzo Bozzi Corso, is a historic masseria La Fiermontina which was  entirely restored and transformed  into a luxurious hotel in 2015. Surrounded by the ancient city walls, La Fiermontina is a place where tradition and modernity  come together in perfect harmony. Surrounded by vineyards, featuring delicious Salento cuisine and providing discrete quietness for guests, but also glimpses of  Baroque alleyways to explore.
