Romantic Palazzo Bozzi Corso is an 18th century palace in the heart of Lecce known as the ‘Florence of the South’.
Here, you will discover a family-owned property where classical architecture effortlessly combines with contemporary design. Choose from 10 unique suites that all focus on a different chapter of the Fiermonte family’s history and even includes artwork of John and Yoko Ono, the latter who was a friend of the owner’s mother.
All the rooms feature curated interiors, and some suites boast a private sauna or chromotherapy shower. Two of the suites share a terrace and two have direct access to the rooftop. The antique ceilings and restored stuccoes beautifully offset the bespoke furniture which includes pieces by Mackintosh and Le Corbusier.
Enjoy views over the bell towers of Lecce from the rooftop terrace which has an inviting plunge pool. A particular highlight of this hotel is the indoor wellness centre with natural stone hydromassage pool and massage room where you can enjoy signature treatments.
Meals are served in the fragrant private garden or in the Art Deco dining room. Enjoy themed nights and a taste of Italian culture when local dancers and entertainers visit.
Palazzo Bozzi Corso is the sister property of La Fiermontina and MAMA Museum and it is clear to see the synergy. You can book a private dinner in the small garden of the MAMA Museum and use the bigger pool at La Fiermontina which is only a five-minute walk away.
During your stay you can take part in a cookery class to discover more about Apulian food with the hotel’s head chef and join a whiskey tasting group.
