Palazzo Tafuri

Nardò, Puglia, Italy


Stunning boutique hotel in Nardò, Salento

This converted palace has been renovated with incredible style and provides a luxe retreat with restaurant and pool in the heart of Nardò close to Lecce – a true Italian gem.

The Location

Palazzo Tafuri is in the heart of Baroque Nardò, close to the ornate Santa Chiara, surrounded by the characterful and historic alleyways and piazzas of this incredible town. However, somehow despite being in the middle of everything this stylish boutique hotel retains a sense of quiet and calm.

Nardò has long been a favourite of Further Afield – check out our blog on some of its highlights  – with good reason. Full of charm and great eateries itself, it’s also in an area of great beauty. Head to the beaches of the Ionian coast, or discover historic cities like Lecce, Galatina, Gallipoli and Otranto. But once you’ve stepped through the front door of this amazing building you might simply opt for days on the roof terrace or by the pool.

To get to Nardò, the easiest airports are Brindisi or Bari (for which there are direct UK flights) then it’s a 50 mile drive from Brindisi or a 130 mile drive from Bari airport.
