La Sommità relais & SPA live in the southern Italian town of Ostuni, where is plenty to revive the spirits of stressed-out urbanites, not least the phenomenal views of the surrounding countryside. Ostuni is a circular town built around a hill and La Sommità is right at the top. The original building itself, a 16th-century palazzo backing onto Ostunis 15th-century cathedral, has been exquisitely restored: its stone walls and vaulted ceilings teamed with limestone floors and thin-framed windows.
Outside, there are terraces shaded by citrus trees and palms; inside are nine rooms furnished in covetable styled white and ecru linens, with pale-wood furniture and flat-screen TVs. The menu is suitably minimalist, offering stylish takes on Puglian classics in one of three dining rooms or on the parapet, which looks out across the olive groves to the sea. Ostuni itself is a fashionable, lively town and a couple of the best bars and restaurants are right on your doorstep. The Health and Beauty Centre stands out amongst the Wellness centers on offer in Puglia, thanks to the refinement and elegance of its rooms, it offers massages, Hammam and various treatments for the body that together with the unique atmosphere offered by this luxury hotel in Puglia, contribute to making it possible for guests to reach perfect psychophysical well being. La Sommità relais & SPA has 15 elegant suites, each characterized by various structural particularities, which are expressed in part by the names they have been given.
The antique lounges and great loggias of the building which hosts the luxury hotel La Sommità are dedicated to reading and to breakfasts and during the afternoon, relaxation is “seasoned” by just-baked sweets and pastries, chocolate, teas and tisanes. The flavours of the typical products from Puglia that have been expertly prepared by the chef in the refined “Profumo” restaurant will delight your holiday in Puglia with refined menus which are in perfect harmony with the seasonal particularities. An expert choice of wines accompanies our dishes, and has been carefully chosen by our maitre, and during the summer dinner is served in the old Spanish garden where orange and olive trees act as a backdrop in this splendid setting. A staircase dug from the stone leads to three antique tanks, which were once used for collecting oil, and are now used for wine tastings – the very precious Vinoteca wine bar.
