Built in 1500 and once upon a time called 'Castello Nuovo', Palazzo Ducale Venturi was firstly a settlement for the Templari and then a medievale fortress. Palazzo Ducale Venturi can be considered as a true fledged fortress house. It is distributed on two floors and corresponding to the windows and the large front door you can see a series of machicolations which were to defend the building from foreign attacks. The ashlar portal is of particular interest and is dominated by the coat of arms Venturi. It was one of the first salentine nobilare houses to open its door and receive guests in its sumptuous and aristrocratic world going back 5 centuries and full of art and culture. The Palace has been completely renovated under the supervison of the soprintenza of cultural heritage, managing to recover two antique ovens, star vaulted rooms in leccese stone and old stone pavements. Today the nobile summerhouse is available for those who wish to dive into a fascinating place offering peace and beauty nestled between majestic olive trees, lush vineyards, and fragrant citrus. Palace Venturi is esclusive, absorbed in greenery, a place to stop in time and to feel unique moments. Exclusive suite: with frescoed ceiling XV depicting San Giorgio and the dragon (40 mq) Junior suite with a large living area (30 mq) Deluxe bedroom eitheir single or double, or communicating, with exit into the secret garden (22 mq) The Abbess's room, intimate with mezzanine, quite romantic, (25 mq.) Palazzo Venturi is also in a stategic position. An easy distance from all the pearls of Salento, all rich with history, infinit with natural beauty, and uncontaminated beaches. It is only 10 km to Santa Cesarea, 7 km to Porto Badisco, 9 km to Otranto and 35 km to S. Maria di Leuca. The ionic coast is roughly 40 km away.
