Only 15 rooms. This is the exclusive welcoming Relais La Summità, a small design hotel located on the highest point of the historic center of Ostuni, the White City of Puglia.
The hotel, housed in a building of the ‘500 and recently expanded with the restoration of the old monastery next to it, owes its name – La Sommità – to its superb location.
The simple and essential interior emphasizes the minimal and luxury style, dominated by shades of cream and white.
The rooms, all different, are divided into Deluxe (The Court, The Lodge, The Cave, The Fresco), Deluxe View (The Sea, The Sun, The Tower, The Palm tree, The Orangery), Suite (The Hill, the Aurora, The Sky, the Cathedral, the Chiminy) and the Master Suite, Le Volte. Some have a lovely balcony with sea view, in other light is filtering through a skylight. All have a large bathroom with stone walls, arched ceilings and products from the “Culti” line, and are provided with air conditioning, satellite TV with LCD screen, minibar, telephone and safe.
For moments of pure pleasure and relaxation, the Spa which offers personalized treatments performed with spa products Mareminerale, result of the “Culti” research, is not to be missed.
The cold Refreshing Spa massages are perfect after a day spent in the sun: performed with seaweed and salt Mareminerale, they give pleasant sensations.
The Relais also has a Spanish garden of orange and olive trees as well as fireplaces and a wood-burning oven that bakes bread and pastries.
The summer dinner is served right in the orange grove, where you can taste the flavors of the Puglia cuisine, edited by Sebastian Lombardi, chef at the elegant restaurant “Il Cielo”, who was recently awarded his first Michelin star.
For the wine tasting you go down a staircase carved into the stone. Here, in the ancient cisterns once used for storing oil, is the precious Oenothèque.
The ancient lounges and great lodges of the palace are dedicated to reading and breakfast.
The beautiful terrace, with its view reaching the sea on miles of olive trees and on the white roofs of the city, gives a feeling of perfection. And of infinity.
