The timeless charm of Palazzo Frangipane

Salve is an enchanting village in the Cape of Leuca that expresses its welcome starting from its own name. Nestled in the timeless alleyways of the old town, Palazzo Frangipane stands majestic and elegant. The building dates back to before the 19th century and today still holds the secrets of the past.

The name of the palace has an exotic origin and echoes the life force of a flower that blooms even after its branches have been cut off. The plant, not surprisingly, is known in the East as the tree of immortality and rebirth. A similar life blood flows between the walls and the rooms of an ancient palace that, renovated with refined care, has been transformed into a luxury dwelling.

Present and past blend in an intimate and enveloping atmosphere, which allows the guest to immediately feel the exclusivity of the experience that is about to live.

Outdoor relaxation: the courtyard, the garden, the swimming pool

Crossing the entrance door, you will enter a typical Salentinian courtyard. The antiquity of the building is in perfect harmony with the elements of nature that make up the spaces, such as stone, wood and the different varieties of plants in the flowerbeds and in the garden. The outdoor spaces are designed to be fully experienced: they are the perfect setting to enjoy unforgettable moments.

It is here that the day begins at Palazzo Frangipane, in the outdoor breakfast area, between tables and stone seats, in perfect Apulian style. Breakfast is offered by the chef in the palace.

Moreover, for moments of total relaxation, you can immerse and regenerate yourself in the picturesque pool, hidden in a more intimate corner of the courtyard. The swimming pool is framed by a large flowered garden, where frangipani plants stand out. A true wellness oasis, nestled in the most authentic atmosphere of the old town. The pool area is equipped with umbrellas, gazebos and sun loungers.

Some rooms have an exclusive balcony overlooking the rooftops of the ancient village, the adjacent Church of San Nicola Magno and the countryside that borders on the blue sea on the horizon. Instead, from other rooms you can access a private and carefully designed garden.

A statue of Buddha in the garden echoes the passion for the oriental cultures.

The quiet and the elegance of the interior

The interior of Palazzo Frangipane preserves the original structure with the traditional star vaults and their tie rods, the exposed stones walls, the cement tiles and niches recovered and enhanced.

The furniture is studied in the smallest details, with contemporary design pieces that highlight the beauty of the building. Even the lights make their play: led lights more or less suffused follow the architectural lines, creating unique suggestions.

A very special room, true flagship of the structure, is the large kitchen in olive wood. A sacred place, where various gastronomic traditions meet, from Mediterranean to Eastern cuisine. Here you can organize professional cooking workshops with the chef of the property.

The guests of the palace will be welcomed in the six rooms, each with its own soul. Bright, spacious and with large private bathrooms, these suites envelop the guest in warm and comfortable atmospheres.
