Ostuni welcomes its visitors with a group of white stone buildings standing on a hill rising up over plainland on Puglia’s Adriatic coast. Relais La Sommità is housed in a building featuring a Catalan-style portal, discreetly hidden away in the highest part of Ostuni, hence its name (La Sommità translates as the Summit in English), behind the town’s main church.
The 5-star hotel is tucked away and comprises a number of buildings housing the 15 beautiful and charming suites and rooms of Relais La Sommità. With its view over endless stretches of olive groves down to the sea and the town’s white rooftops, the hotel’s terrace brings to mind the infinite, the sensation of finding yourself in a new dimension. La Sommità is a retreat, a refuge, a location that welcomes rather than impresses, that allows you to turn a holiday in Puglia into a chance to switch off from the excessively hectic, everyday life.
The interior design of Relais La Sommità, which borders between aesthetic minimalism and discreet luxury, with shades of white and cream, inspires above all meditation, making the hotel the perfect destination to get away from it all, to find peace and wellbeing in the enchanting region of Puglia. At "Cielo" restaurant, one Michelin Star, the cuisine evokes distant memories, while at the same time guiding palates into unexplored terrain.
