30 km from Ostuni, on the ancient via Appia, this splendid Luxury Relais is for sale. A noble Venetian-style building, built in the early 20th century to fulfil the wish of the noblewoman Maria d'Ippolito Guadalupi, who lived in and loved Venice.
The exclusive historic residence, located in the heart of the upper Salento, is surrounded by ancient gardens that are always in bloom, offering shade and quiet for a pleasant break in the nature of the place.
Three refined suites have been obtained from the accurate restoration of the ancient Lecce stone stables with star and barrel vaults, allowing the creation of an exclusive relais characterised by a skilful combination of past and present.
