Corte dei Francesi: we could not have picked a better place for our stay in Maglie (which was an excellent mid-point to explore the countryside towns and those along the coasts of the Adriatic and Ionian Seas). "Mama" (the owner) and her daughters were a joy and very helpful. Pamella was a delight and prepared and served regional specialties at...

The architect who converted the old tannery into this stunning little hotel was brilliant, imho! The combination of the modern features with the remains of an old tannery, complemented with contemporary furniture and pottery yielded a stunning result! Our room was large and comfortable, and so was the bathroom. This is a great base to explore the region: Lecce, Gallipoli,...

Corte dei Francesi is a wonderful place! Clean, beautiful, sophisticated: a great place for work or vacation. It is a historical palace, but with all the technological equipment needed for contemporary life! Chiara and Veronica are kind and knowlegeable: two great hosts!

This stunning B&B is located in and old and now restored tannery, and the staff, mainly all family, go out of their way to assist with anything they can do to help. The bedrooms are on the ground floor mainly, and are airy, and provide an area to sleep well in. The breakfast was a joy, especially the little apple...

My family spent three nights in Maglie as a base to explore Salento. The hotel is an old tannery preserving its history with displays and exposed architecture throughout. We had a room on the ground floor open to a courtyard, where the children can play and have their snacks. Breakfast consisting of pastries, cold cuts, and fruits was complemented with...

I stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights last week and I loved it. Well kept hystorical location, clean and friendly staff - a unique place! My room had quite a small bathroom, but still ok. The only complaint is a quite noisy in-room mini-fridge, but that's not a big deal after all! Lovely terrace to enjoy in...

This charming hotel is a beautifully restored Tannery with a quiet courtyard, vaulted ceilings and thoroughly modern appointments. There are some historical exhibits chronicling it's 17th century past though the lodgings are thoroughly modern in convenience. Bathrooms are well appointed with good showers and a bidet, the linens are very good and the bed is comfortable. There is a comfortable...

This small hotel, without a pool, but not a problem, set in an old tannery, helped me relax and appreciate the deep south of Puglia. Very pleasant staff with a personal touch. I look forward to coming back here again.
