Five-star interiors and exquisite Italian gourmet cuisine in a historic central Lecce hotel, with rooftop dining - includes breakfast, flights and car hire

Sealing the deal for gourmands and spa aficionados who fancy a jaunt in Puglia (the proverbial heel to Italy’s boot), Risorgimento Resort is a real game-changer. As settings go, it really doesn’t get much better - a five-star hotel in a heritage building smack bang in the heart of Lecce, the so-called “Florence of the South” celebrated for its generous amounts of Baroque architecture, sun-kissed sandstone buildings, magnificent churches and squares, and rather fascinating Roman ruins.

The wondrously overstated guest rooms uniquely styled and paired with marble bathrooms. Expect lashings of warm colour tones - beige for the local stone, green for olives, and brown for vineyards - and contemporary fixtures and fittings. But it’s the insanely good Salento cuisine that’s the hotel’s raison d'être, from the creative meat and seafood-leaning dinner menu at Le Quattro Spezierie Gourmet Restaurant to the inspiring a la carte offerings at the seasonal Le Quattro Spezierie Roof Garden.

Factor in a spirit-healing spa with a hamman and treatment rooms and a gym with state-of-the-art Technogym cardio equipment, and chances are you’ll never want to pack your bags and leave.
