Enjoy a relaxing break on Puglia’s Adriatic Coast in a converted palazzo, just steps from the beach – includes breakfast and perks for longer stays

We are working with hotels to ensure that they comply with the public health regulations regarding COVID-19.

  • Classic style: Designed by Milanese architect Emilio Corti in the 1800s, Villa Raffaella spent its first life as the residence of a Baroness – which explains its wonderfully grand architecture and beautiful period features. Nowadays, the guest house welcomes guests looking for an authentic experience in the heel of Italy, in the sun-beaten region of Puglia.

  • Picturesque vistas: Enjoy scenic seascapes from the balcony and beautiful interiors reminiscent of the golden age. Rooms are located in a golden-hued stone building and are cool and calm, with tiled floors, whitewashed walls and rich teal-painted doors and windows. No-frills interiors add to the charm, with billowing linen drapes to keep out the heat.

  • Laid-back activities: There are bikes to borrow for pedalling along the coast and inland on the quiet lanes that snake through the olive groves. When you’ve worked up a sweat, reward yourself with a homemade lunch of juicy, ripe tomatoes, creamy burrata cheese and delicious ham (you can pick it all up at the market) and refresh with a cooling dip in the sea.


Please note that some dining and leisure facilities may be closed. Please call the hotel before you travel to find out if facilities have reopened.
