One of our favourite hideaways in Puglia, Relais La Sommita is easy to miss given its location right in the heart of Ostuni, known as the 'White City'.
This 16th-century white-washed building is home to one of the few 5-star boutique hotels in Puglia where you're surrounded by local stone, little luxuries, fragrant aromas and soothing sounds. An ideal honeymoon hideaway where you can relax and be pampered.
The Michelin star restaurant 'Cielo' is an added bonus for lovers of great food.
The focus at Michelin star restaurant 'Cielo' is in the tradition of the past and the innovation of the future, and the international wine list has been expertly chosen to complement the seasonally-changing menu. During the summer months, you can dine under a canopy of stars, surrounded by olive and orange trees in the Spanish garden.
Afternoon Tea, long drinks and fine wines are served, along with mouth-watering appetisers on the Belvedere.
The 15 air-conditioned rooms and suites at Relais La Sommita are contemporary without being too modern. They are designed with local stone and woods and decorated in soft, muted colours. Many of the rooms have natural skylights and large windows, while others have stunning views and balconies. Flat screen TVs, complimentary WiFi, minibar, hairdryer and Bulgari products are featured in all of the rooms. If you have a favourite room we can try and accommodate your request at the time of booking.
Explore the winding whitewashed alleys and cobbled streets of Ostuni. Wine lovers should head to the ancient cisterns for some wine tasting and if you're after some pampering, the Spa at Relais La Sommita is the place to go for personalised treatments aimed at relaxation. Whilst there isn't a swimming pool, the generous Jacuzzi is great for a refreshing dip.
