"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.

  •   Il palazzo di Francesca è veramente bellissima e Francesca è una persona incredibile. È venuta a prendermi dalla stazione quando sono arrivata, è i servizi nell’appartamento erano meravigliosi. Francesca, grazie mille per il pasticciotto e per mostrarmi la tua città bellissima!

      This is easily the best Airbnb experience I've ever had. The location could not be better - in the heart of town, yet quiet. The house is old, grand, very spacious and beautiful, with a lot of privacy and a terrace to-die-for, I felt like a princess. Everything was sparkling clean and Francesca was warm, helpful and friendly. She even suggested to meet me at the bus station! Communication was perfect and I had all I needed for a lovely stay. I strongly recommend this place, it feels like you have travelled back in time, like living in a film. Thank you Francesca, I feel so lucky to have found your amazing home!

      Francesca e Cose m’ont reçue comme une princesse dans leur demeure digne d’un conte de fées ! Leur palais est situé dans le centre historique et pourtant il est très très calme. le logement est indépendant et comporte deux chambres avec salle de bain plus un immense living avec entre autres une bibliothèque et un coin petit déjeuner ainsi qu’une magnifique terrasse intérieure très ensoleillée. Un coin de paradis hors du temps que je vous recommande avec émerveillement. Grazzie mille pour toutes vos attentions délicates ainsi que votre accueil extraordinaire !!!

      Located in the very heart of Lecce and literally behind the Duomo, so easy to walk around the centre . The Accomodation is in one of the older grand homes , a large apartment with a lovely old world feel. We chose this home as it is so centrally located and forms part of the baroque atmosphere. Great restaurants and bars close by but the apartment very quiet and light. We had hired a car and it was great to be able to park in the courtyard of the house.Francesca was there to meet us and is a very kind and generous host.

  •   Ha sido una estancia excepcional.
    Es un lugar precioso, con mucho encanto, amplio y super tranquilo, un remanso de paz y de refinamiento.
    A parte de la habitación está un salon comedor y una bella terraza donde leer y hacer amistad con los preciosos gatitos de la casa.
    Francesca es a la vez muy hospitalaria y muy discreta, encuentra los detalles que hacen la estancia muy muy agradable.
    Un flechazo total por este palacio.

      What a wonderful experience in a beautiful palazzo. We were met in town by Francesca, who guided us to a free parking lot not far from the palazzo. The palazzo had the WOW effect!!! Huge, spacious & a beautiful terrace, all for us! Location excellent, close to the historical city center; all reachable on foot. Communication with Francesca was perfect! We would highly recommend staying here. Thanks again Francesca!

      Ein wahrhaftiger Pallazzo! Der Salon ist riesig mit mehreren Sitzgruppen und Esstisch in historischer Möblierung einschließlich der Ahnengalerie in Öl. Dazu ein separates Schlafzimmer und eine weitläufige Terrasse. Man fühlt sich geradezu in Zeiten zurückversetzt, als der Adel die Stadt beherrschte. Grandiose Einblicke! Die Fotos täuschen nicht, das Original übertrifft den Eindruck sogar noch. Lage sehr zentral.
    Kochen kann man hier nicht, es gibt einen Kühlschrank und eine Kapselmaschine für Espresso, aber täglich frisches Gebäck und Zubehör fürs Frühstück.
    Ein wahrhaft stilvolles Ambiente!

      1000% recomendado. Francesca y Cose demostraron su gentileza y disposición desde antes de recibirme en su casa. Siempre estaban atentos e interesados en dar a conocer los lugares mas bonitos de Lecce, pero mas que todo siempre demostrando un gran sentido de hospitalidad. La recamara era estupenda, limpia y muy bien decorada. Fue una experiencia magica en todo el sentido. Espero poder regresar.
