 Chilling by the pool!  The magnificent courtyard of Palazzo Gorgoni.  What a setting for dinner!  The pool seen from the roof terrace.  The terrace on the first floor.  The Bedouinesque shady lounge zone on the roof terrace.  The solarium on the roof terrace.  Looking down on the pool from the first floor.  Part of the impressive entrance hall off the main courtyard.  The superb main courtyard is the first thing you see on entering Palazzo Gorgoni.  Moving down the Imperial staircase...  The wellness centre...  Heading towards the pool...  The internal courtyard with its pool!  Another shot of the pool with its hydromassage corner.  The more formal dining room.  Sun-filled reception rooms on the ground floor.  Looking out to the lemon tree courtyard.  A snack under the shade of some lemon trees.  Relaxing in the shade of the lemon trees!  The informal dining room by the kitchen.  The super hi-tec kitchen!  The bedroom on the ground floor.  Colourful and spacious.  The impressive staircase.  It leads up to the first floor.  Fabulous furniture and a light, airy atmosphere.  A shot of the art gallery!  Contemplating art!  Another of the several sitting areas.  The kitchen on the first floor also has a staircase leading to the roof terrace.  One of the spacious en-suite bedrooms on the first floor.  Looking from the study to some of the living areas.  It's a kind of sofa... believe it or not!  The master suite with its roll-top bath and views.  Another of the en-suite double bedrooms on the first floor.  Another of the superb bathrooms.  One of the five bedrooms accessed from the first floor terrace.  An exotic oriental headboard in this first floor bedroom!  Style and comfort united.  A bathroom with shower and tub.  Another bedroom on the first floor.  Another bathroom.  Delightful carvings on the Imperial staircase!  The roof-top terrace has some great views over Galatina.  The shady pergola on the roof terrace.  A super spot to read and relax.  The roof-top solarium with Galatina for a view.  Sundowners all round... what a setting!  The last bedroom, halfway between the first and second floors.  Looking down from the roof terrace.  Sound the gong!  What an atmosphere.  The daybed off the main courtyard.  Here is the perfect shady spot for a little reading or an afternoon snooze!  The communal bath!  Massage anyone?  The well-equipped gym.  Time for one last dip before dinner?  Moving towards the wellness area.  The large sauna.  Looking from the pool to the palazzo.  Another shot of the roof terrace with its backdrop of Galatina.  From Galatina the beaches are just 15 to 20 minutes away on both sides.  A lovely street in Galatina.  Enjoying an aperitif near the Basilica di Santa Caterina.  Village nightlife in Galatina!  The beach and coastline of Torre dell'Orso, between Lecce and Otranto.  The transparent waters of Rivabella, just north of Gallipoli.

Contemporary luxury, historic charm and artistic flair in the heart of Galatina...

Here's how to restore a late 18th-century palazzo in the heart of a lovely Baroque town: have fun, put your passion into it and embrace the original character and history of the building. This is what the owner of Palazzo Gorgoni has done! Meticulously, lovingly and luxuriously brought back to life over the last few years, Palazzo Gorgoni charms, delights and pampers in equal measure. The amount of space is only one of the many surprises in store for guests who, even after a week in residence still find themselves chuckling and cooing at the wonder of it all.

"Our stay at Palazzo Gorgoni was a total delight... The staff were wonderful, cheerful, and ready to help in any way they could. Great crew. The two dinners they catered for the twelve of us were fun. They should be commended... It is clear that a lot of attention and taste has been poured into the renovation of this historic building, and the results are visually spectacular. I see from some magazines lying around the study that it has been noticed and covered by lifestyle magazines, and we all felt that it deserved the spreads and kudos." Name withheld, USA, March 2013

Inside: the main entrance from the street leads into an ornamental courtyard where your wows will begin! In front of you is a symmetrical tryptich of baroque apertures formed by an ornate central window and two adorned doorways. Above you is the sky, framed by the neo-classical balustrades that delimit the first floor terrace, and above those, three frescoed arches. Passing through either of the doors in front of you – right or left, your choice! - you will come to an impressive Imperial staircase leading to the first floor

Beginning our explorations on the ground floor, one first comes to a large formal dining room, accessing a peaceful lemon-tree shaded courtyard. Next to this is a super-contemporary, slick-steel kitchen and then a second, more informal dining area. The ground floor is also home to a relaxation and wellness area that includes a gym, a sauna, a chromotherapy shower and a communal bath! Just a hop, skip and a jump away is another tranquil internal courtyard featuring an enticing pool with hydromassage corner. An en-suite bedroom completes the accommodation on the ground floor.

Heading up the Imperial staircase, which is flanked on either side by sculptured balustrades and a regiment of Doric columns supporting vaulted ceilings, one may either enter the main body of the first floor or walk around the terrace, off which four of the eight luxuriously appointed en-suite bedrooms are accessed. Inside the main body of the first floor is the large master suite with views over the pool courtyard and a succession of rooms, including lounge areas, a study, a TV room, a dance room, an art gallery and a service kitchen (with access to a terrace). A flight of stairs next to the terrace leads up to bedroom number seven. The furnishings, artworks and clever design touches are a constant source of charm, while the fittings and bathrooms leave you in no doubt that this is a top-notch, top quality property.

A second flight of stairs leads to the large panoramic roof terrace, off which, hidden away, is the eighth bedroom, complete, of course, with en-suite bathroom. Too many stairs, you may be thinking… Then take the lift!

Most of your al fresco time will probably be spent either in and around the pool courtyard or on the large expanse of roof terrace. The pool area is perfect for lazing around, thanks to a series of comfortable reclining areas and to a hydromassage corner in the pool itself. The roof terrace offers a wonderful shady area for reclining, chatting and chilling, a barbecue and lots of excellent vantage points from which to view the surrounding town (which has a good selection of bars, restaurants and boutiques). The roof terrace is the perfect place for sundowners and for long starlit dinners, during which you may well find yourself toasting the ingenuity, wit and taste of your host!

Service: Palazzo Gorgoni offers an impeccable level of service, including a member of staff who will prepare breakfast, and a maid who will carry out daily cleaning. A cook is available on request.

"My husband and I spent a perfectly wonderful week at Palazzo Gorgoni with our children and grandchildren. The Palazzo is spectacular and has been modernized while at the same time maintaining the original architectural features that one would expect in a sumptuous palace. The domestic help does everything possible to make your stay flawless. We especially adored the housekeeper. She goes out of her way to please and is a lovely person. There are charming places to visit and have lunch which are not very far from the Palazzo. We have travelled extensively all over the world and staying at Palazzo Gorgoni was a special treat!"
