The project for the LAGO WELCOME Maglie @Corte Campanile emerged out of the desire to restore and revitalise a little corner of the historical centre of Maglie, comprising a two-floor property (mezzanine level and lower ground floor) that was in a state of total abandonment and suffering major structural problems.
Once the residence of the caretaker of the neighbouring oil mill, the B&B has four square-plan rooms with distinctive star vaults and a large garden dominated by a church bell tower, the tallest in the province after the one in Lecce.
Corte Campanile also needed to communicate its revival through modern furnishings that would harmonize with Salento history. The interior design project was therefore focused on finding a balance between the needs of a holiday home and those, perhaps first and foremost, of a historical residence.
The contemporary lines of the furniture, whether suspended on the wall or on invisible sheets of glass, give the rooms of the B&B a feeling of tremendous lightness, and their minimalism enhances the historical Salento architecture. Each of the guest rooms in this design B&B has been named after the piece of LAGO furniture that defines it, underlining the marriage between design and architecture: Et Voilà, Fluttua, Air and Loto.
The LAGO WELCOME @Corte Campanile is the perfect base for a holiday in Salento, where you can soak in its tradition and vibrant atmosphere.
