Our favourite rooms
Ask for a room with a terrace and a view out to sea. The suites are much larger and have big windows with great views. Le Volte, the master suite, has a bathroom as big as its bedroom and a similarly spacious terrace, overlooking olive trees and the sea. The working fireplace in Il Camino makes it a perfect winter hideout.
There is no pool at La Sommità, but guests can ask reception for a pass to a nearby beach.
Here is where Italians choose to spend their downtime, which ups the style stakes considerably. Ensure you pass muster by packing perfectly tailored shorts, designer sunglasses, silk headscarves and lots of lippy.
Horse riding, cycling and cookery courses can be arranged. Small pets are welcome.
The hotel accepts dogs and cats for €25 each a night – the only place they're not allowed is the restaurant. Just let the hotel know when booking. See more pet-friendly hotels in Puglia.
Are welcome, although the building isn’t really suitable for very young children.
