The Hotel

Located at the top of a hill, beyond the cathedral, hidden within the ancient walls of a sixteenth century mansion, a small luxury hotel called La Sommità Relais lies. This beautiful building located in the heart of the charming old town of Ostuni, the “White City,” has been transformed throughout the centuries from a castle, to noble house, and now to a magnificent five-star hotel. The refined rooms, the Belvedere and breathtaking views, the Spanish Garden and the fine dining restaurant make this house an ideal place for an exclusive break. La Sommità Relais has been designed to let guests experience Puglia by linking the solid tradition to the young innovation of the warm and inviting landscape. The Michelin star “Cielo” restaurant displays the perfect balance between the lunar ambience given by the ancient bright stones, and the modern design. The philosophy embraced by the chef is that the past symbolizes tradition and the future, innovation which is portrayed through his cuisine inspired by the tradition of Puglia with an innovative twist.
