Love at first sight


Dimore di Brando was born with the desire to give its guests the same dream and emotions that Polignano a Mare has evoked in us from the very first moment.

Having always been accustomed to traveling, both for work and pleasure, our family has been fortunate enough to explore countless magnificent places over time. We have immersed ourselves in the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean, as well as those of the Maldives, Egypt, or the Seychelles. We have skied in the Apennines and admired the majestic Alps. We have delved into the frenzy of metropolises like New York, Paris, and Tokyo. We have wandered through the fascinating East of Europe, and then… then we returned to Italy. After years of vacations on the colorful Amalfi Coast and in the crystalline seas of Sicily and Sardinia, one beautiful day, a dear couple of friends decided to take us here, to Polignano a Mare, for the first time.

The historic buildings in which the dwellings are born conveyed to us, at first glance, the charm that envelops the city. We have sought to preserve this aspect during the renovation in order to convey it to each of our guests.

Although we had already had the privilege of visiting wonderful places, before that moment, none of the many had remained embedded in our hearts like that precious “treasure chest” of Puglia. After our “first encounter,” the initial idea was to purchase a small house to spend our family summer vacations there. However, as we continued to frequent Polignano, the need arose within us to share with others the same sensations that this charming little town had evoked in us. And it is precisely from here that our project takes shape, and a small dream begins to come true: Dimore di Brando.

That is why Dimore di Brando inherits its name from the pillar of our family: Bruno. Grandfather Bruno, nicknamed “Brando” by his grandchildren, was a man of discipline but with a tender heart. He loved family gatherings, was deeply attached to traditions, and strongly believed in values such as sharing and hospitality—those very values through which we would have the pleasure of offering you uniquely emotional moments.

We wanted to pay homage to the women of our family, dedicating their names to the rooms. And so Linda, Arianna, Luna, Lodovica and Giulia, with their stories, become an integral part of our project and protagonists in every stay.
