We absolutely loved our 3 nights at Palazzo Ducale Venturi! The staff was beyond fantastic - extremely attentive, kind, and truly take a ton of pride in providing the best service! Everyone was wonderful, but Daniele took care of us from breakfast until early afternoon every day and he was extra fantastic.||The food was delicious and the beds and rooms are very comfortable. The hotel is stunning and very quiet and peaceful. We loved spending a full day on the grounds enjoying the gorgeous pool from breakfast until apertivo, the underground spa, and the gym. When we requested to use the bikes they prepared them for us and were waiting outside the hotel when we came down, we also booked the boat excursion in Otranto through the hotel (definitely highly recommend this as well) and when we went down to the desk to get our car keys the car was already pulled out in front of the hotel. We could go on and on about all of the great things, but if anything stands out it was the service and the attentiveness of the staff, absolutely unmatched! We were sad to leave but left feeling relaxed and refreshed. We cannot recommend spending at least a few nights here enough!

Beautifully restored former country manor. Loads of great details in the restoration including many beautiful and ancient frescoes decorating the ceilings and stunning artwork in the corridors. A very unique experience right from the fabulous original green entry door, with exceptionally helpful staff, beautiful meals, excellent spa and gym. There is a candlelit private hot pool that was originally an olive press tank that is bookable to ensure privacy. We had champagne brought to the hot pool. There are various coffee shops and restaurants nearby including the fabulous Ristorante Ficarigna in Specchia. |Thank you to all who made our stay so memorable. ||The location is an excellent base to explore the area by cycling or car.
