Located in the South of Apulia and in the center of Salento area.

The Palace was completely renovated in 2008 and further enriched with precious details in 2010, all the while keeping intact its original characteristics.

Located halfway (40 km) between the capital, Lecce, Santa Maria di Leuca, extreme southern point of the Salento peninsula. Very near with a huge number of very intresting place (Historical, Archeological, and tipical ancent small town). In the middle between Adriatic and Ionio sea. 6km from the sea of Santa Cesarea Terme (one of the biggest SPA in Italy, on the sea).
The Adriatic Sea has eroded the tufa rocks of the Salento coast for centuries creating fantastic shapes, rocky caves and grottoes…
Otranto is only ten kilometers from San Cassiano. Nicknamed the "City of Martyrs" for the 800 inhabitants who were beheaded by the Turks in 1480 for refusing to convert to Islam, Otranto is the heart of the Italian portion of the Byzantine Empire. A must see is the Cathedral with its elaborate mosaics of daily life, and the Castle with moat, built in 1578. Interestingly, the castle is the setting for Horace Walpole's "The Castle of Otranto," generally deemed the first gothic novel.
