My name is Elena and I'm the owner and managing director of Palazzo Rollo B&B since it was established in 2006. I was born here and came back to Lecce after getting a degree in business economics in Florence, studying in Stockholm (where I refined my English), and working in Milan in event planning. I decided to return to Lecce to manage the re-launch of my family's 'palazzo' as a B&B right at the moment when tourism in Apulia got a new boost. In fact, our B&B is one of the first that opened in the city – it's number 96 in the B&B register!!!! -. Despite all the difficulties, I love this job because every day it gives me the chance to meet people from all around the world. Our guests are enthusiastic about our wonderful area and we are happy to provide them with any news, information and friendly advice they may need. We personally look for unique local experiences for our guests, such as cooking classes, wine and food tastings or trekking on the seaside. We do everything we can to accommodate our guests!

All this couldn't be possible without my fantastic partners, colleagues and friends who have w summer period. Born in Brazil, but by now a de facto Italian, he arrived in Italy in 2005 and has worked at Palazzo Rollo since 2006. He has two sons, one of whom was born in Lecce, and a wonderful wife who never stops to rest. At the Palazzo he takes care of guest accommodation, room presentation and any other business.

Mrs. Adriana, my mother and Palazzo Rollo's cornerstone, actually retired, is in fact never in retirement. She is a former school teacher, super mummy, great grandma and perfect host. She accommodates her guests with diligence and politeness, personally taking care of interior design and linens and tailoring them to the floor and tile colours of the bathrooms (much to the joy of the cleaning staff)! She also takes care of the breakfast and sometimes pleases our guests' palate with delicious homemade jam and cakes. An iron lady but with great taste!

SimonaOur new entry of the 2016 is Simona. She graduated from Foreign Languages and International Communication in Turin. She knows three languages perfectly such as English, French and Russian (and soon Portuguese!). She is really professional and kind, always smiling. Very competent in her work, she has a significant national and international experience. But she hates the mess!

IlariaIlaria arrived at the Palazzo thanks to the collaboration with the University of Salento. She is going to graduate from Science and Technique of Linguistic Mediation ; she speaks English, French, Spanish and also a little bit of Chinese and Portuguese. She had had several study experiences in England and France. Despite she is a really quiet girl, she deals with back and front office activities, graphics and photography.
