|The cherry on the cake of the receptivity of Ostuni|
The Relais Sant'Eligio is located in one of the most exclusive stretch of coast line along the Adriatic Sea: the coast of Ostuni. The sea at Ostuni is beautiful and the coast line is still unspoiled with many wonderful beaches. It runs for 20 km from North to South punctuated by a series of long beaches, small inlets, reefs, dunes and Mediterranean vegetation. After a century of abandonment, the post stations returns to live in a Relais that is the cherry on the cake of the receptivity of Ostuni.
Collocated at the feet of the historic centre, in the shadow of the antique defence walls, it is embraced by the magic whiteness of the ancient town, by the silvery green of one million and a half olive trees, the most ancient of the Mediterranean, by the blue of the sky and de sea and by the splendour of the light of Apulia.
Our guests can chose to spend their day on a beautiful white sand beach, or relaxing along the unique reef. We would be glad to suggest beautiful exclusive private beaches where the guest can get all the services needed at discounted prices. Most of the private beaches have secured parking, restrooms, showers, and everything else the guest may need to enjoy a relaxing day.
The ancient arches in the hall and the restaurant show the structural recovery. An internal court, two spots to spend relaxing moments and a panoramic terrace that leads your eyes to the clear sea, that offer to the guests an exceptional receipt in a unique environment.
The rooms: 22 rooms, provided of mini bar, air-conditioning, safe, satellite TV, telephone, internet, assure all the modern comfort, with furniture that preserves the integrity of the ancient structure.
The territory is rich of historic centres, archaeological sites, fortified masserias, natural zones, and underground olive mills. The "street of the oil" touches the cities of Ostuni, Carovigno, and Cisternino. Aragonite towers and fortified structures, erected with a determined defensive goal in an area that is particularly vulnerable to invasions become a wonderful route to discover. The itinerary of the masserias is the most enthusiasmatic discovery. A territory to be routed by zigzagging between the sea and the intern land to discover a sweet and desolated landscape, an exuberant nature that blends the perfume of De Sea with essences of the country. At a small distance you can visit some unique places: Lecce with its baroque, Alberobello with its characteristic trulli, Castel del Monte of Frederick II, the excavations of Egnatia, Martina Franca and the valley of Itria, Torre Guaceto protected oasis and the Zoo safari of Fasano.
