How would you describe Paragon 700 in a nutshell?
A 5-star hotel without stars. For us, it is a place where people can connect and feel at home.
What is the story behind Paragon 700, what was your inspiration to create it?
Once the home of Ostuni's first mayor, Don Paolo Tanzarella, Palazzo Rosso has a fascinating past. This venerable stone building has long been at the centre of the town's social and cultural life, with the oldest parts dating back to the 18th century.
After removing several layers of paint from the interior walls, we uncovered wonderful Neoclassical frescoes depicting mythological animals, such as dragons and griffins. From these creatures, we decided to adopt the dragon as our logo.
How would you describe the atmosphere and the interior design of Paragon 700?
Paragon 700 features an eclectic, cosmopolitan decor, with every item having its place. Studied to the smallest detail, there is nothing that hasn’t been specially chosen for where and what it is used for.
The rooms are decorated with pieces from around the globe, giving Paragon 700 a multicultural elegance. It’s this unusual yet perfectly balanced combination that is the trademark of our interior designer, Pascale Lauber.
To you personally, what is so special about Paragon 700?
At first sight, we immediately realised the potential of this jewel: the height of the ceilings, the vaults, the frescoes and the red stone. They all made the Palazzo so special. Additionally, it had a unique design with very special attention to detail.
