Puglia is an unconditioned land. A land of boundless skies, transparent waters, red grounds, mighty olive trees, tenacious winds. Puglia is also a land of cathedrals, borghi and villages, ancient castles, trulli, restored farmhouses, chiselled stone, white lime, flavours and music.
Puglia is long, is a lot, is diverse. From North to South, the region has different souls yet still one. It is hard to find the point of contact, the common denominator of all its dimensions. Perhaps is history. The ancient Greek roots. The roots of idleness, talkativeness, cult of hospitality, good food, celebrations of Feasts.
In such a place, in the geographic region of Salento where we were born and grew up, after having acquired a long experience in the hospitality industry, we decided to devote ourselves to those travellers who are looking for authenticity, eager to discover the real character of the places they visit, far apart from traditional tourist clichés.
This is how Santa Marta Collection was born: historical dwellings in the heart of Lecce, a few steps from Piazza Duomo. Special places to stay at and to return to, where you can find your own quiet “buen retiro” your Eden. Nostalgic atmospheres with a classic charm yet a modern taste; embellished with exquisite pieces of Salentino handicrafts, meant to restore the values of tradition and to bring them into modern life.
