A large doorway
leads visitors into the building, whose structure is developed around the courtyard. The rooms, in the section on the left of the courtyard, have star vaulted ceilings
, while they are mainly barrel vaulted on the main floor, on the right. On the floors, one can also recognise the old Apulian “battuto”
On the left, the Patio
proposes a spacious two-room flat with a star vaulted double bedroom, a bathroom and a living and dining room
with a sofa bed. Nearby, opposite to the street door, there is the ground floor kitchen, from which there is also access to the laundry and a bathroom. On the right, a broad stone staircase leads to the Tower, the main floor. You accede to it from a welcoming terrace, through a great door whose cornice is decorated in Lecce stone finely engraved with the mask of the devil. The large rooms are barrel-vaulted, five and a half metres high (the oldest from the 1600s).
leads to the first floor, The Terraces
: here there is a mini-apartment with a star vaulted double bedroom (plus private bathroom) from which you also have access to the roof top terrace.
The building also has a vast multifunctional studio (with additional direct access from via Ramis 13) with connecting large underground cistern
accessible by a spiral staircase.
It is currently proposed to use this room as a multi-purpose studio
for cultural activities, exhibitions, workshops, applied arts workshops, yoga practice, and any other group activity etc.
Children allowed, of course. And even small animals. Smoking is permitted outside the premises, in the courtyard and on the terraces. All rooms feature a Wi-Fi
connection and an independent air conditioning unit
(cooling and heating).
