The space

If you’d like to stay in a Ducal Palace of the XVIII century - where time seems to have stopped - enjoying total relax, excellent food and wines close to the gorgeous sea and immersed in the countryside, you should spend some time in Tuglie and let yourself be welcomed by the warmth of its people.

Located in the heart of Salento - the extreme part of the Puglia region - Tuglie offers that peaceful atmosphere which belongs to the past, together with a unique geographical position which allows to best enjoy the beauty of Salento in its entirety. The Ionic coast and the célèbre town of Gallipoli are just 10 minutes away by car, while in 30 minutes you will reach the Adriatic coast, home of Otranto, Santa Maria di Leuca (also called finibus terrae i.e. end of the earth), Santa Cesarea Terme (with its wonderful SPA) and lots of other great locations.

The Venturi family offers you the possibility to stay in an 80 sqm apartment built with typical local stones (pietra leccese) and fresco ceilings, recently renovated and with air conditioning made up with living room, a little kitchen with every confort, chimney, double bedroom, bathroom with bidet and a studio couch bed if you would like to stay in 4. We provide sheets and towels.

The apartment is located inside the Ducal Palace of Tuglie, which was built in the XVIII century and is now divided in two parts, both owned by the Venturi family:
- the residential one, where the apartments are;
- the ancient servants’ wing, which in 1982 became Museum of the Salento rural culture (URL HIDDEN)

The Venturi family will be happy to provide you with valuable hints in order to enjoy at best the experience of Salento.

Reward yourself with a unique experience in Salento, the land of sun, sea and wind!

Excellent place to stay, about a 10 minute drive to Gallipoli and the beautiful coast. Air conditioning was a huge bonus. Throughly enjoyed the 'local' feel of the village and the hosts were exceptionally helpful on our arrival and provided us with all the necessary information required for our stay - especially relating to the local delicacies. Would highly recommend this wonderful place to stay - a palace!

We were made wonderfully welcome and well looked after. We thoroughly enjoyed coffee on the square, very atmospheric watching the Vespas and tuk-tuks. and feeling part of everyday Italian life..

Tuglie is a hidden treasure, and the Ducal Palace the jewel in the crown - very central, yet peaceful and calm. The apartment is very modern, yet retains a lot of character features e.g. the exposed brickwork, and frescoes on the ceiling. A nice base to experience life in a little Salentine town, and Gallipoli and the areas around. We enjoyed this small and charming town and the hospitality of its people. Our hosts, Antonio and Piermaria are very welcoming and helpful.

Absolutely lovely space and great hosts. I could not recommend this place enough. If you are travelling through Puglia or want to holiday somewhere near this is the place to stay. A beautiful, relaxing and welcoming space for a comfort stay. Piermaria and Antonio are a lovely couple, my parents and enjoyed staying at their house. Thank you again.

We were warmly met and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this simple, tidy apartment attached to the palace. Our lack of Italian was overcome by phone calls to Antonio and Piermaria's daughter Anna. Safe parking inside the complex was appreciated. Tuglie is delightful town and this apartment is well situated.

Siamo una felice coppia di 65 anni, sposati da 30 con una figlia di 26 anni.
Da quando siamo in pensione abbiamo deciso di dedicarci alle nostre passioni: leggere (dai romanzi alla filosofia), cucinare, occuparsi di giardinaggio, correre, viaggiare e passare il tempo in completo relax nel nostro Palazzo di Tuglie.

Due anni fa abbiamo deciso di ristrutturare due appartamenti all'interno del Palazzo Ducale per far sì che anche i viaggiatori come voi possano godere della bellezza del Salento: dai suoi uliveti al suo mare cristallino, dal suo cibo ai suoi vini, dalle sue caratteristiche cittadine alla simpatia della sua gente.
