Situated on a hillside overlooking a beautiful town in Italy, the Castello Di Ugento is an ancient castle that was renovated to be a luxurious travel option.
Formerly housing an Italian royal family, the hotel is now a nine-room boutique space that has a historic shell with a repurposed interior with luxe guest rooms, an art museum and a culinary school. The five-star accommodation seamlessly blends the structure's regal heritage with a unique modern design. Each room was designed differently with a mix of contemporary furnishings, handmade Italian textiles and local antique pieces. The in-house restaurant offers local fare and uses only fresh produce that was grown in the property's garden.
Filled with unique amenities, the Castello Di Ugento offers guided tours through more than 100 medicinal and aromatic local plants on site.
