In the private areas the architectural concept, the design of the interiors, and the furnishings all celebrate harmony with the territory. Every last detail is just so: from the lighting devices to the bathroom accessories, from the seating to the fabrics, and from the carpets to the smallest feature. On the bedroom walls, large photographic prints on canvas by the photographer Marino Mannarini portray details of Lecce Baroque; the carpets in the bedrooms are patterned in stylized olive trees; every element is intrinsic to the territory and reinterpreted according to contemporary taste. The 41 rooms and 6 suites of the Vestas Hotels & Resorts group are beautifully appointed: fully-adjustable air conditioning/heating, minibar, telephone with direct-dial outside line, radio and television. The spacious bathrooms, entirely panelled in fine marble and conceived of as wellness spaces, are hence fitted with all comforts.
