This elegant hotel sits right in the middle of beautiful Lecce – stylishly traditional with a warm and friendly atmosphere making it the perfect base for a stay in this truly wonderful city.
The impressive historic building dates back to the 1400s when it was used as a simple locanda, upgraded to a hotel in the 1800’s and now a super place to recharge your batteries in the glorious Salento.
Risorgimento Resort was completely refurbished in 2007 ensuring that the hotel returned to its’ former splendour with a refreshing contemporary twist. The 47 rooms and suites have been carefully designed with a careful eye ensuing comfort and style go hand in hand – we are sure you will not be disappointed. The combination of the famous creamy coloured Leccese stone blends perfectly with the green tones reflecting the olive trees and the darker colours of the delicious local grapes. Some of the rooms look out on to the town, some have tiny balconies and the suites all have private terraces. Common to all rooms is air conditioning, heating, wifi, minibar and safe.
The hotel not only boasts one of the best locations in Lecce but also perhaps one of the best roof terraces in the area. Here in the warmer months you can enjoy watching the world go by below you and study the stars in the dark blue sky above – all whilst sipping an aperitivo or enjoying some tasty supper. For the cooler months there is lovely restaurant with a relaxing atmosphere where you can sample some great local fare.
The little spa, Salus per Aquam, lets you enjoy a hammam with Turkish bath after a day of browsing the myriad of winding streets in Lecce and marvelling at the local architecture.
If you are looking to explore this great town and would like a little pampering during your stay, look no further.
