A boutique studio apartment for 2 people with bathroom, kitchenette and bed loft in a 17th-century palazzo in the heart of Nardò’s Baroque old town (Lecce, Puglia). The Tempietto boutique studio is just 5 miles from the Ionian sea and a short hop from other historic towns, including Lecce, Galatina, Gallipoli, Maglie and Otranto.

The Tempietto boutique studio features an ornate chapel arch built 100 years before the rest of the palazzo.

On the ground floor of a 17th century palazzo in the heart of the beautiful Baroque town of Nardò, the Tempietto studio apartment is just a stone’s throw from the Baroque Piazza Salandra and the Teatro Comunale.

In 2013, the property was sympathetically restored, using traditional materials, to create a space with all modern comforts without compromising the style of  the original local architecture. The clean and minimalist decoration and furnishing are a perfect mix of modern and classic, crowned by impressive vaulted ceiling.

The studio has a kitchenette enabling you to prepare breakfast, snacks and light meals. Or if you prefer to eat out, there are numerous cafes, restaurants, trattorias and pizzerias within walking distance. We can advise you on where to shop for groceries, pick up a tasty sandwich, find the best ice-cream and pastries or savour some of the best food you’ll ever taste.
