Palazzo Cairney is in the historic centre of Nardò, in the province of Lecce in the South of Puglia (Salento).  The area is famous for its food, wine, warm hospitality and beautiful beaches with crystalline water and Nardò is no exception.  Close to the Palazzo there is a wealth of Baroque architecture, cafes restaurants and bars with a selection of beaches within a 10 minutes drive.  Lively but still unspoilt, Nardò is an excellent base for exploring the area – Lecce and Gallipoli are 20 minutes away by car, Brindisi airport 40 minutes.
