Built in 1775, La Fiermotina Palazzo Bozzi Corso is a charming historic building located just a few steps from the Basilica of the Holy Cross in Lecce. It is celebrated for its perfect proportions, with Emanuele Manieri’s 18th century design gaining a touch of modernity and refined hospitality through the more recent work of the Fiermonte-Filali family.
Featuring a beautiful two-hundred square metre secret garden - all just for you - the palace offers a quiet space for you to read and relax, complemented by an elegant roof terrace with views over Lecce's rooftops and bell tower.
Dedicated to the memory of boxer and actor Enzo Fiermonte - the uncle of the Palazzo’s current owners - the building allows you to immerse yourself in ornate furnishings, rich artworks and world-class design, including pieces by Sottsass, Gio Ponti, Mackintosh and Le Corbusier. The building is also home to sculptures and paintings by Jacques Zwoboda and René Letourneur, as well as beautiful watercolours by Fernand Léger and original drawings by John Lennon, donated by Yoko Ono.
When staying here, enjoy the freshest products Puglia has to offer; start the day with delicious cappuccinos, pasticciottos and other delicacies prepared by our chef. In the evening, savour a glass of wine in the living room or a specially prepared private dinner, surrounded by enchanting paintings and artworks.
Whilst enjoying culinary delights and artistic splendour, you can also take care of yourself in our Relaxarium; book a massage, take a dip in the heated whirlpool or reconnect with your inner self with a yoga session.
The building also features an elegant rooftop terrace that allows you to marvel at Lecce’s beautiful baroque architecture and take in unforgettable sunsets. A small plunge pool and loungers offering a magnificent view of the city adds the the perfect touch.
