La Fiermontina

*****

An urban, luxury resort of 16 unique guestrooms and suites built around a 17th century private home, La Fiermontina is located within the historic heart of Old Lecce, known for its Baroque architecture and storied past.

A modern-day masseria that mirrors its storied surroundings, this private retreat makes for a memorable holiday in Puglia. Olive trees surround the swimming pool in the sculpture garden, a rarity in the old quarter, and the restaurant offers a modern, light take on traditional Pugliese cuisine. In the spirit of its 17th century heritage, the hotel features traditional pietra di Trani floors and pietra leccese seen in noble homes of the Salento region. Star-pinnacled ceilings enhance the aesthetics in many of the 16 private quarters, each unique and all finished with Italian furniture, custom textiles and organic bath products.
