Real pleasure can’t be hurried

Relaxation and good food in Salento: Gallipoli and Otranto

A detoxifying holiday means freeing yourself from the stress of work and the frenetic pace of every day. Unwind, give yourself time to daydream, experience a truly relaxing stay here in Salento, in harmony with the nature of our beautiful Gallipoli and Otranto. Here at the Palazzo del Corso, as at the Relais Corte Palmieri or the Palazzo Mosco Inn or the Relais Valle dell’Idro, enjoy a good book, sleep in a welcoming room with every comfort, and let your mind wander as you walk through the alleys of the historic centres of Salento’s most fascinating cities, Gallipoli and Otranto.

There are places where hospitality is sacred and where the rhythm of life is itself an invitation to relax. Salento is certainly one of these places, ready to delight your senses and spoil your palate with irresistible dishes. At our Ristorante Dolce Vita, with its magnificent sea views of Gallipoli, everything speaks of holidays: the sun glinting on the turquoise water, the slow swaying of the boats, the white of the Mediterranean buildings, the placid smiles of the staff. Let yourself be pampered with succulent dishes chosen from the best of Salento cuisine, all prepared with carefully selected ingredients. Spend a special break in one of our historic houses between Gallipoli and Otranto and you quickly leave behind the everyday and rediscover the pleasure of life in the slow lane, even over meals.

Like to get away from the traffic jams and car horns for a few days? Gallipoli and Otranto are perfect for swapping the red of the traffic lights with that of poppies in the fields; for enjoying the outdoors. And the seaside is always close by inviting us to make the most of the warm sunny days that are left, sitting in a deckchair in our rooftop solarium, enjoying a drink and your favourite book. Take time for long walks, stop and admire the castle, the local architecture, the people and then, when it is time to sit down to eat, enjoy the goodness of the dishes prepared by our chef using local ingredients.

Because, you know, real pleasure can’t be hurried.
