The Palazzo

An ancient stone street leads to Palazzo De Noha, a hidden treasure in the heart of baroque Lecce.  Every detail communicates the owners’ vision: to create a sophisticated place where guests can enjoy the exceptional quality of luxury along with the care and privacy of home.

Palazzo De Noha is a memorable, inspiring experience. The noble three-story palace has spacious guestrooms, suites and lounges, all shimmering with Lecce’s golden light. Terrace-gardens blossom with bouganville, the elegant rooftop solarium and pool feature contemporary Italian design and offer a beautiful view on Lecce from above.

Our vision

A visionary renovation transformed the fifteenth-century palazzo in an inspiring couture hotel that celebrates artisanal tradition and global innovation. Palazzo de Noha is a unique fusion of historical legacy and contemporary design. Moon System, futuristic sofa by architect Zaha Hadid, elegantly dominates the main hall beneath an ancient vaulted ceiling; Artemide lamp by Gae Aulenti illuminates archaeological remains under a glass pavement. The old masters’ techniques of cementina (tile-making) and cartapesta (papier-maché) relive in the custom floors, the reception and café counters by Riccardo Cavaciocchi, and Francesca Carallo‘s installation on the second floor.

Un piccolo grande sogno custodito nel cassetto delle cose belle.

Paola e Giorgio, desideravano una casa nella luce intensa del centro storico di Lecce, un luogo, in grado di contenere affetti e convivialità, che donasse quiete agli anni a venire.

Fu così che Palazzo De Noha fece capolino nelle loro vite. Incastonato come gemma preziosa e discreta tra le stradine a ridosso del Duomo, l’antica dimora signorile mostrò ben presto la sua indole accogliente che i nuovi proprietari decisero di assecondare facendone un Lifestyle Design Hotel, eludendo i tradizionali e formali canoni dell’ospitalità.

Un'esperienza da ricordare

The ambitious restoration transformed each guestroom in a work of art. Sculptural bathrooms with glass walls allow visitors to enjoy the original architecture and historic features. The strong lines of custom suspended wardrobes and desks vibrate against the soft backdrop of authentic pietra leccese ceilings. Every room is unique: exquisite artworks, museum-grade pieces of Italian and international design and their very own shade of marble fixtures.
