B&B GALLIPOLI



AN UNFORGETTABLE VACATION IN GALLIPOLI


IN GALLIPOLI B&B CASA GALATEO 20 IS LOCATED IN THE CENTER OF THE MEDIEVAL FORTRESS TOWN OF GALLIPOLI, SURROUNDED BY THE SPLENDID IONIAN SEA. B&B CASA GALATEO 20, IS A BUILDING WITH A CLASSIC COURTY ARD PLAN DATING BACK TO THE LATE 16TH CENTURY. THE CHARMING TERRACE THAT DISTINGUISHES THE FAÇADE IS DECORATED WITH PROPITIATORY MASKS THAT PROBABLY ORIGINATE FROM SPANISH PRINTS FROM THE TIME OF THE MAYA CONQUEST. CROWNED BY A LARGE ROUNDED ARCH WITH A SKYLIGHT THAT ILLUMINATES THE RECEDED WINDOWS, THE TERRACE IS NAMED ‘THE MIGNANO’, AND SINCE ANTIQUITY HAS FUNCTIONED AS A CONDUIT BETWEEN THE PRIVATE SPACE OF THE INTERIOR AND THE PUBLIC SPACE OF THE STREET.

THE RESTRUCTURING OF THE CASA GALATEO BUILDING CONSERVES THE ORIGINAL STRUCTURE AND INTERNAL SPATIAL DISTRIBUTION, ADAPTING IT TO MODERN TECHNICAL / FUNCTIONAL DEMANDS, SUCH THAT THE MAIN HALL WITH ITS STAR-SHAPED 6-METER CEILING REMAINS THE HEART OF THE HOUSE, AROUND WHICH THE GUEST ROOMS AND SERVICES ARE ORGANIZED.

THE MATERIALS AND FINISHES USED IN THE RESTRUCTURING WERE CHOSEN IN LINE WITH THE TASTE OF A TYPICAL HOME OF THE SALENTO. ON SOME OF THE WALLS AND CEILING VAULTS THE PATINA OF EXISTING PAINT HAS BEEN PRESERVED AS TESTIMONY OF THE BUILDING’S PAST.

ALL THE AREAS OF CASA GALATEO 20 ARE CLIMATE CONTROLLED AND EVERY ROOM HAS ITS OWN BATHROOM WITH SHOWER OR TUB.

THE CASA GALATEO 20 BED & BREAKFAST OFFERS DOUBLE AND QUADRUPLE ROOMS AS WELL AS INTERCONNECTED ROOMS, EACH WITH INDEPENDENT SERVICES, MAKING IT IDEAL FOR FAMILIES, COUPLES AND FRIENDS. EACH ROOM HAS FREE WIFI, FLATSCREEN HD TV, MINIBAR/FRIDGE AND A WALL SAFE.

THE UPPER TERRACE, OCCUPYING MULTIPLE LEVELS, HAS BEEN RESTRUCTURED TO CREATE AN OUTDOOR SOCIAL SPACE: A SERIES OF PERGOLAS WITH CURTAINS AND REED MATS OFFER SHADE, AND GUESTS CAN HAVE BREAKFAST WHILE ENJOYING VIEWS OF THE NEARBY CATHEDRAL, THE STREET LIFE OF OLD GALLIPOLI AND THE SURROUNDING SEA.

THE PROJECT BY MILANESE ARCHITECTURAL STUDIO DECARLOGUALLA, WHICH WORKS FOR SEVERAL INTERNATIONAL FASHION BRANDS, WAS INTENDED TO PROVIDE GUESTS WITH AN ‘EXPERIENTIAL’ STAY, TO MAKE THEM FEEL AT HOME AS IF THEY WERE RESIDENTS OF GALLIPOLI, OFFERING AN EXPERIENCE OF LOCAL CULTURE, HISTORY AND FLAVORS. A TYPICAL SALENTINE PALAZZO IN THE HISTORIC CENTER OF GALLIPOLI THAT FEELS LIKE HOME.

GALLIPOLI

OVERLOOKS THE IONIAN COAST OF THE SALENTO PENINSULA


GALLIPOLI, FROM THE GREEK KALÈ PÓLIS, MEANING ‘BEAUTIFUL CITY’, OVERLOOKS THE IONIAN COAST OF THE SALENTO PENINSULA.

THE FAMOUS ISLAND-CITY RISES IN THE CENTER OF THE BAY AND IS DIVIDED IN TWO PARTS: THE BORGO, OR MODERN PART OF THE CITY, SITUATED TO THE EAST ON A PROMONTORY, AND THE HISTORIC CENTER, PERCHED ON A LIMESTONE ISLAND AND SURROUNDED BY RAMPARTS AND DEFENSIVE WALLS WITH A TOTAL LENGTH OF ABOUT 1.5 KILOMETERS.

THE FOUNDING OF THE CITY DATES BACK TO THE GREEK SETTLERS FROM SICILY. IT WAS THE OBJECT OF MANY INVASIONS, GIVEN ITS STRATEGIC POSITION. IT WAS CONQUERED IN 265 BC BY THE ROMANS, WHO TRANSFORMED IT INTO A MAJOR MILITARY OUTPOST. SACKED BY THE VANDALS IN 450 AD, IT WAS REBUILT BY THE GREEKS OF THE EASTERN ROMAN EMPIRE IN 542 AD, WHO BUILT THE MAJESTIC FORTIFICATIONS. OCCUPIED BY THE NORMANS IN THE 11TH CENTURY, IT WAS LATER SUBJECTED TO THE DOMINATION OF THE SWABIANS, ANGEVINS AND ARAGONESE. IN 1501 THE CITY OF GALLIPOLI WAS BESIEGED AGAIN BY THE SPANISH, THEN BY THE FRENCH IN 1528. IT THEN BECAME PART OF THE KINGDOM OF NAPLES, WHEN KING FERDINAND II OF BOURBON STARTED THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE PORT.

VISITING GALLIPOLI, IT IS STRIKING HOW PAST AND PRESENT COEXIST, AND HOW HISTORY HAS REPEATEDLY MADE IT WITNESS TO CONFLICTS BETWEEN EAST AND WEST.

OVER THE LAST TWENTY YEARS THE CITY HAS SEEN A STRONG INCREASE IN TOURISM. CRYSTALLINE WATERS, NATURE, ART AND CUISINE ARE THE MAIN ATTRACTIONS FOR TOURISTS, ESPECIALLY DURING THE SUMMER. THE COAST OF GALLIPOLI IS ONE OF THE MOST FASCINATING IN ITALY, FORMED BY LOW CLIFFS ALTERNATING WITH WIDE BEACHES.

AFTER TOURISM, THE CITY’S MAIN ECONOMIC ACTIVITY IS FISHING, WHICH MAKES GALLIPOLI AN AUTHENTIC MARITIME CITY. CERTAIN PRINTS DATING TO THE 18TH CENTURY TESTIFY TO THE TIME WHEN THE PORT OF GALLIPOLI WAS CROWDED WITH SHIPS FROM EVERY PART OF EUROPE.
