"Palazzo Sambiasi"
bed and breakfast a Lecce

Welcome to Palazzo Sambiasi, a magnificent baroque structure built by our family in the early 500’s.

We decided to transform one part of the building into a fine suite, which is intended to be not just “another” hotel or b&b. In fact we want to share a piece of our family’s history with interested guests who are keen on discovering Salento from an authentic and unforgettable point of view.

A vivid example of “Barocco Leccese”, the Palazzo is conveniently located in the heart of the old town, an oasis of peace and quiet but a very short walk from the main tourist attractions, bustling bars and restaurants. Furnished in an original antique style, at our palazzo you will enjoy a true aristocratic experience from a bygone era, yet in total comfort and modernity.
