Relais La Sommità boasts perhaps the best position in beautiful Ostuni, perched high in the old historic town centre with fabulous views across the olive groves to the Adriatic Sea.
Arrival day: Any Car hire: Recommended
This 5 star boutique hotel occupies an amazing 16th century palazzo high up in the maze of alleyways and tiny streets of the oldest part of the town, making it the perfect spot for a little indulgence whilst in Puglia.
Home to some wonderful spaces including a super lounge bar, various terraces with spectacular views and a Michelin starred restaurant, La Sommità is a little oasis of peace and calm in the fascinating White City of Ostuni.
The 15 bedrooms are all different in size and furnishings but clean lines, white walls and simple but very stylish decor are common to all. High ceilings, often vaulted are found in many of the rooms giving a wonderful feeling of space and the use of big windows and sky-lights ensure that the rooms are naturally lit as much as possible.
The Restaurant Cielo offers a super selection of refined dishes accompanied by a very comprehensive wine list. You may choose to eat inside in the cool dining room surrounded by the old and original walls of the Palazzo or al-fresco in the pretty garden amidst the olive and orange trees.
A gentle stroll will take you past the Cathedral and down the winding streets to the Piazza della Libertà from where you can browse the many boutiques, shops, local grocery stores, perhaps stopping in one of the bars for an espresso or maybe a glass of local white wine.
