Your place in history...

Three reasons why you'll love it here

  1. An chance to be part of 500 years of history
  2. The beautiful garden and saltwater pool
  3. The 5-star luxury suites

With a 500-year history that includes Templar stronghold, Medieval fortress, and aristocratic residence, the luxury 5-star Palazzo Ducale Venturi is a chance to experience both the beauty and culture of the lush countryside of Salento.

Sumptuous Sophistication

Dating from the 1500s, Palazzo Ducale Venturi was completely renovated recently under the careful eye of Italy's Ministry of Culture, and the original star vaults in local Leccese stone and flagstone floors have been restored to their former splendor, and are offset by elegant antiques and impeccable furnishings and artwork.

Two antique salt ovens were also unearthed during the residence's restoration, where guests today can take cooking lessons to learn the secrets of preparing some of the Salento peninsula's most traditional dishes!

Play Your Part in History

Palazzo Ducale Venturi is rich in history and legend, the backdrop of love stories and evil curses. Each guest room in the palace is unique and indulgent, many with luxurious touches like restored period furnishings, and guests can choose from Standard and Deluxe rooms or Junior Suites, or book the breathtaking Suite Ducale, with its ceiling frescoed with scenes from the legend of St. George.

Relax at the Palazzo

True luxury is being able to relax surrounded by peace and beauty, just like that of the main gardens surrounding the Palazzo, where both the fitness center and bar overlook the large outdoor saltwater pool with massage jets.

The jewel in the crown of Palazzo Ducale? The underground heated pool set in the former underground mill. Unwind with a relaxing dip in the pool, a massage, or a spa treatment for a truly luxurious break!

Discover the Treasures of Puglia

Though it may be difficult to drag yourself away from the luxury of Palazzo Venturi, the beauty of Puglia's Salento peninsula shouldn't be missed. With the beautiful towns of Otranto, Santa Maria di Leuca, and Lecce just a few kilometers away, along with some of the most beautiful beaches along the Adriatic coast, it would be a shame not to set out to explore.
