Palazzo San Giovanni Your Yearlong Vacation Retreat
There is a hidden Puglia. Made of ancient gestures and rituals full of history and tradition that you can perceive in the traces left over time.
The most visible traces are those that can be seen among the cracks of our monuments, some, written on the walls and windows of our churches.
We at BeeYond Travel found this hidden Puglia as soon as we entered the rooms of Palazzo San Giovanni, a historic residence overlooking Piazza San Giovanni in Morciano di Leuca.
We relived the atmosphere of milling the oil in the trappeti, ancient oil mills that surround the building. We have felt the strength of the Lecce stone of the fireplaces that are in the rooms. We perceived the skill of the sculptors who created the star vault of the breakfast room with that same Lecce stone.
This time we want to really show you something different. Something you can only find here.
Without forgetting, of course, the comforts to which we have become accustomed: the Palazzo has been recently restored (2013) and has four rooms and two apartments, for a total of 16 beds.
Everything about the Palazzo is wonderful, to say the least. Morciano di Leuca is located in the extreme edge of the Salento peninsula, and is very close to the famous "Maldives of Salento": white sandy beaches that face the Ionian.
It originates from the destruction of the ancient city of Vereto by the Saracens.
The etymology of its name seems to derive from the Latin 'murex' which indicates the type of rocky and hilly terrain on which the town stands.
Palazzo San Giovanni is therefore located in a heavenly landscape and spending your holidays there will give you emotions that you will hardly forget.
Breakfast is included daily, always plentiful, features fresh and homemade products on the table for an awakening like true nobles.
And, in general, this whole area is perfect for food and wine lovers: the main product is extra virgin olive oil, but also the local wine is of excellent quality. This area is filled with history, art, folklore and ancient traditions. Here, it is possible to
In short, Palazzo San Giovanni seems to be the ideal place to live a dream Made in Salento: we want to give you a little of our hidden Puglia, the one that very few know. You will love it.
