The five-star La Sommità is a historic boutique hotel set in a converted 16th-century palace at the highest point of the beautiful city of Ostuni in south-east Italy. From here you can enjoy stunning views over olive groves and the white roofs of Ostuni's historic architecture. The gorgeous setting and the calm interior design of cool, neutral colours make it a wonderfully tranquil place to relax.
The spa at La Sommità offers a range of treatments aimed at leaving you feeling revitalised. There's also a luxurious hammam where you can relax and forget your cares.
There are just 15 rooms and suites, all unique. All have large windows to make the most of the views, while many also have their own terraces. The large suites have enormous bathrooms, and some have their own open fireplace.
You'll want to head out and explore this beautiful area, and the hotel's friendly staff will be happy to arrange bicycle hire or a horse-riding excursion. This region is famed for its cuisine, so you may also like to take a cookery course while you're here.
La Sommità's restaurant serves delicious local fare, which you can enjoy beneath the stunning vaulted stone ceiling of the dining room or outside in the walled garden. You can also enjoy a drink in the underground bar or outside on the castle ramparts.
