Modernism meets old-world majesty at Palazzo Daniele Luxury Hotel Design
Modernism meets old-world majesty at Palazzo Daniele, a Pugliese mansion celebrating 150 years of Italian art and hospitality. The 19th-century palazzo had served owner Francesco Petrucci’s family for four generations until he opened its doors, enlisting Milanese architects to strip out the clutter and restore its historic splendour. A year later, he lent his ear to fellow art collector and hotelier Gabriele Salini – the man behind fellow Smith stay, G Rough – who convinced him to transform it into a nine-suite guesthouse fit for their covetable art collection.
Now, its period details have been married with minimalist furniture and striking art installations, and the once-formal atmosphere replaced by something far more familial. Set your body clock to southern-Italian time as you lounge in the orange grove, tan by the inky pool or swap stories with the chef as she prepares a traditional Apulian feast.BOOK NOW
