Luxury historic hotel Wellness & Spa - Minervino di Lecce - Ref: DUC

The luxury small hotel housed in a Ducal Palace dated from the 15th century is located in the old town of Minervino di Lecce, right in the heart of Salento. Thanks to the fresco paintings, antique furniture, ashlar worked gate with the Venturi emblem and ancient ovens, the Palazzo Ducale Venturi welcomes guests in five centuries of history, art and culture.
The Palazzo is classified as Historic Mansion and has been entirely renovated in respect of its original structure. This is a splendid and charming historic house combining perfectly antiques with an elegant contemporary style. Enjoy the lovely courtyard garden hosting an intimate orange grove also called agrumeto and relax in the beautiful salt water pool featuring a hydro-massage.
The delicious breakfast consisting of fresh fruit cocktails, focaccia, homemade tarts and jams, traditional bread, yoghurt, cold cuts and regional cheeses is served in the breakfast room or on the terrace in season.
Guests can enjoy complete relaxation in the private SPA of the hotel, an underground heated pool with hydro-massage converted from an antique oil mill or revitalize their body and mind in the fully equipped fitness room. You will appreciate the hotel for its distinctive and romantic atmosphere, its beautiful outdoor spaces, its comfortable and stylish rooms.

The 20 rooms, all different in size and typology, are luxuriously decorated with period furniture carefully restored, fine art and antique items. The Ducal Suite is located on the ground floor and enjoys a direct access to the garden. The bedroom of the suite features a characteristic ceiling adorned with frescoes depicting the legend of St Georges. All rooms are equipped with TV, air conditioning/heating, safe, mini-bar, wi-fi connection, tea or coffee machine.
A unique and restful stay in a historic mansion of Salento ideally located to visit the cities of Lecce, Otranto and Gallipoli and relax on the beautiful beaches of the coast.
The hotel organizes various sensorial experiences from culture to gastronomy, sport to wellness like yoga retreats, "detox" programs, 'lampara' fishing excursion (night light fishing) and cooking classes of traditional Salento cuisine.
