If you are on this page it’s because you are thinking to spend a holiday in Salento. Don’t hesitate to book your stay here, one of the most beautiful places of the world.

At the extreme edge of Apulia, Salento has been awarded as “Best value travel destinations in the world” by Lonely Planet and National Geographic and the New York Post has reported the news. It, infact, boasts the best of southern Italy for the rhythms of life, the old traditions, the beauty of the places and the food and wine culture.

From the sea to the countryside, from  nature to  history, from the tradition to the innovation: the “salentina” land is a real  fertile land  that offers a great variety of themes and variations for your holiday!

A landscape characterised by  lots of castles and towers to testify a long story of battles and invasions along the boundaries, by wellknown towns and small, apparently anonymous villages but rich in places to be seen and discovered such as Matino. In, this town, marked by a timeless atmosphere, Relais Palazzo Zaccaria is located.

Ground floor of an ancient house of 1800 where Zaccaria raised job pets used in agriculture at the beginning of  last century, after years of abandonment and of deterioration, two young people fallen in love with Salento decided to purchase it and to turn their dreams into reality.

The refurbishment of the house is made in the full respect of its architecture; all the elements are made by local artisans, with a view to  recover and to support  the salentine workforce and  materials. Furnished with great charm and taste, it picks up some collections of local craftsmanship such as Enza Fasano’s ceramics and Nico Preste’s artefacts, as well as the ceramic MUTINAs, used in the shower where the collection AZULEJ of Patricia Urquiola takes back the memory to the ancient handicraft maioliches basis on hydraulic cement. A recurrent theme in the housing is the lighting system with lights, colors, sketches and illusions that represent  Salento and, since a few years, are characterizing elements in the wellknown “concertone” at the night of the taranta.

Territory, matter, emotions. The Relais interprets the hosting in a salentina location where the soul finds temporary relief.
