The Dimora


Our Dimora is located in the countryside of Parabita, in the Salento hinterland, a few kilometers from the wonderful town of Gallipoli, famous for its golden beaches and crystal clear sea. The Giardino Grande is an oasis of peace, the perfect spot to discover the popular Apulian hospitality, the slow breath of nature, the charm of a refined and essential design.
The estate, dated back to the second half of the 19th century, was used as a summer residence by a well-known aristocratic family of Parabita. It was nicknamed the Casino —a term indicating the residences located in some feudal districts and used as leisure and relax escape by the wealthy people. Such constructions were made of local stone, characterized by particular vaulted ceilings and large gardens enjoyed during the free time.


The careful restoration was driven by a clear goal, maintaining and preserving the essence of this special place whilst creating something new and unspoiled. The outcome is an elegant and unique Dimora where the past meets contemporary design. Il Giardino Grande is thus the perfect home for all travelers that admire aesthetics and are passionate about art.
