Where to stay in Salento

The charming old town of Salento features accommodations that perfectly match the overall atmosphere of days gone by. No hotel seeks to dominate the skyline; some now occupy historical buildings, while more recent builds opt for villa-style looks and scale. Choose between slightly larger hotels with onsite restaurants, pleasant grounds, and picture-perfect balconies, or smaller hostels in formerly residential buildings.
