The strong ties to Puglia and the impressive modern art collection are inspired by the owner's grandmother. She loved (and married) two artists, who remained best friends living across the courtyard from each other, both in love with their mutual muse.

Our favourite rooms
All rooms are inspired by traditional local buildings, with large blocks of pale stone, grey or mustard seating, and crisp white bed linens. Room 7 (a Suite) has beautiful arched ceilings. The bed is the centrepiece of Room 9 (a Junior Suite), which also has a terrace that begs to be breakfasted on. For the ultimate in space and privacy, spring for the Duplex Suite with its extra-tall ceilings and private outdoor lounge.
You’ll find the delightful diminutive pool at the far side of the gardens, so it's relaxed and removed from the action of the main hotel hub.
Unwind in La Fiermontina’s treatment suite, l’Agrumeto. Choose from a range of classic massage treatments, including deep-tissue and hot-stone Ayurvedic massage, then soak up your final moments of calm with post-pummelling refreshments.
Bring wide-brimmed hats, comfortable but stylish lace-up sandals, and A Room with a View to read in yours.
