PALAZZO DANIELE in Puglia for a Winter escape

A new hotel with 6 bedrooms.  Gagliano del Capo…..the town throbs with creative types.  You can rent the whole place $10,300 a week.


Helen Mirren……Serefini and Palomba have their second homes here……

INKY black water in the pool invites you “chill out”………..tho the beach is only a sort distance away.

The bedrooms do have the feel on a monastery.

OK….the Shower is definitely worth a try.

Entrance to the villa………your getaway from the chill of New York…..
