Palais Gentile

Matino, Italy

This unique and completely magical 18th-century palazzo is ready and waiting for you. Perfectly nestled in the old town of Matino, an authentic village in Puglia’s countryside, Palais Gentile is a place where you can slow down the pace and indulge in everything this secret corner of Italy has to offer. Originally built as a family home where the owners could get together and celebrate life with family and friends, this enchanting property is now open to everyone who seeks a relaxing and more intimate getaway. Original stones, exquisite craftsmanship and some of their personal art collection adorn the walls within this palazzo. Each of the deluxe rooms and suites bring together exquisite Puglian architecture with authentic arches, limestone bathrooms and discreetly luxurious details, as well as handmade artwork from local artisans to bring the local “savoir faire”. Intimate, sustainable and totally chic, Palais Gentile is your new home in Puglia.

The Palais To Be

“We believe in family values, as much as sustainable principles and creating a positive impact in our community. We stand behind the UN Sustainable Development Goals, pondering every decision we make in terms of impact and sustainability: from our choice to our zero-impact thermostatic system, using local traditional materials and handicrafts, and using only local food produces; we care for our planet, our people and future generations.”

The Location

Palais Gentile offers the best of the Salento region right at your doorstep. With Matera, Positano and other parts of Puglia to explore, the concierge team here will be delighted to build the perfect itinerary for you. Take a dip in one of the most beautiful clear-water beaches of Italy, Lido Pizzo, explore the Baroque city of Lecce, the so-called "Florence from the south", and connect with the local culture through tantalising foods and drinks. Here you can experience the true authentic taste of Puglia.

The Rooms

Whilst each of the Deluxe rooms offer some of the most stunning views across the old streets of Matino, magnify your experience in one of their spacious suites that feature beautiful Puglian arches and spectacular windows. Frette linens, Salvatore Ferragamo bathroom amenities, local handmade artworks, geometric tiles, bespoke lighting and luxurious details make these spaces even more intimate.

Nibbles & Tipples

Relax and unwind every evening on their rooftop terrace. Here you can enjoy a selection of Salento wines, taste local taralli and watch some of the most unmissable sunsets. Whilst there is no in-house restaurant, treasure refined Italian cuisine in Foscolo – a place where elegance and hospitality coexist in the simplicity of a passion: beauty and well-being.

Experience the Salento region each morning with a tantalising breakfast with a view. Serving only the best local ingredients on their rooftop, there’s no better place to start the day right than here.

God is in the details
