The idea of Italy as a holiday destination brings with it certain expectations, certain familiar scenes — from the palazzos and canals of Venice to the streets of Rome, buzzing with motorbikes; from the red roofs and vineyard rows of Tuscany to the cliff mansions of the Amalfi coast.
Ostuni, then, seems like another world. A knotty assemblage of white stone buildings, clustered together at the top of a hill that rises alone from the plains of Puglia's Adriatic coast. The view from Relais La Sommità patio, over the whitewashed rooftops and clotheslines of the town, across miles of low olive trees to the edge of the sea, gives a sensation of infinity.
Relais La Sommità, one of the best
five stars hotels in Ostuni Italy, is a retreat, a shelter, a moment of quiet in an over stimulated life, an environment that's meant to envelop rather than impress. The interiors walk the line between an ascetic minimalism and a stylish luxury, in a palette of creams and off-whites, with the sort of quiet and solid furnishings that are the signifiers of high-end modern interior design.
The restaurant "Cielo" is a journey in the style of traditional recipes expertly described in the present, with particular care in choosing products.The three ancient cisterns once used for storing oil, now kept a cellar with an interesting selection of wines and oils.
