Palazzo Bozzi Corso, Lecce
This historical palazzo in the heart of Lecce is ideal for a romantic weekend in the city, offering utter relaxation, style, and good food. Moments away you’ll find the glitter and lights of the Baroque city’s holiday atmosphere. Stroll or cycle to visit the Basilica of Santa Croce, Piazza Sant’Oronzo with ruins of an ancient Roman amphitheater, and Piazza Duomo with its climbable bell tower from which you can enjoy views as far as the sea.
The walls of the palace are home to private artworks that recall the story of the Fiermontina family; each Suite tells a story, starting with Jacques Zwobada (1900-1967) and René Letourneur (1898-1990), two of the most interesting artists in the panorama of European sculpture in the first half of the 20th century, whose works can be admired in the house.
Palazzo Bozzi Corso is offering Gourmet Experiences and Romantic Weekend packages from now until the 6th of January 2023. Enjoy Salentinean hospitality rich in art, wellness, gourmet experiences, dessert cooking classes, and whisky tasting by the fire.
The whiskey tasting features labels across the globe, to be enjoyed at “Bar Enzo” which overlooks the beautiful private garden, or in the splendid “Strawberry Fields” library with its frescoed floors on the first floor. At the property’s Wellness Area “Le Scuderie” you can bathe in the natural stone hydromassage pool and waterfall, which can be combined with an argan oil massage to relax the body and mind, relieve stress and fatigue and then enjoy herbal teas and fresh fruit at the Relaxarium.
