La Sommita, Ostuni
|Via Scipione Petrarolo, 7, 72017, Ostuni, Brindisi, Apulia, ITALY.|
Description: La SommitaThe rooms of La Sommita' Relais Culti are located in the ancient Palazzo Palmieri, an historical 16th Century residence on the back side of Ostuni Cathedral, which was completely reconstructed in Romanesque and Gothic style in the second half of the 15th Century, under the Aragonese rule. The local charm and the ambience still remain the same as ancient times: from its secluded places you can overlook an entire tract of centuries-old olives gently sloping down from the village to the sea.
Palazzo Palmieri has been restored preserving all the original and structural features of the time so it has only ten rooms and one suite. The experts who restored the castle maintained the magnificent cross (star) vaults on the high ceilings and they are now completely restored and masterfully brought back to their ancient splendour.
Walking towards the Cathedral across the historical centre of Ostuni, among ancient buildings and secluded spots, step by step, you find yourself in an environment made of local flavours and smells where one could easily lose his grip on reality. This is the subtle but sometimes fairly overwhelming feeling you can get upon approaching La Sommita. An ancient olive tree in the background, the wine cellar inspires intimate and convivial moments. A stone-carved stair takes you to the entrance of three ancient tanks once used for the oil harvest, which are given today to wine tasting.

Dining: The sophisticated restaurant is held within two big stone vaults overlooking a Spanish garden where orange and olive trees grow luxuriantly. Restored fireplaces and a wood-burning oven, where bread and cakes are baked, take you back to the ancient times when the quality of life lay in simple and everyday gestures.
Then, after a wonderful meal, climb either of the two different staircases up to the first floor where the ancient halls of the castle have been made into ten suites, a reading room of two big open galleries, and a dining-room for breakfast time.
In the afternoon, when the bells of the Cathedral mark the hours, on the ground floor of the south wing, lit only by candles, discover a relaxing area to savour tea infusions or chocolate and taste cakes just taken out of the oven.
Wellness: there is an exclusive Spa where every type of well-being and relaxation treatment can be had for a total psychophysical remise en forme. Here, light, sound, and sensations show us a new world where water is the fundamental theme on which the path to wellness is based.
All treatments use the Spa Mareminerale products and methods that are the fruits of Culti research.
