About La Fiermontina
La Fiermontina is a 17th-century luxury property featuring traditional baroque architecture. All the rooms and suites are full of character, decorated with vintage and high-end antique pieces. The artwork around the resort is part of the hotel’s carefully selected collection, and the architecture tells a story of the family’s ancestors and the country’s history.
The swimming pool sits within the olive and orange tree garden that shares its ancient city walls with Lecce. The garden is dotted with sculptures from the family’s private collection. The Restaurant offers traditional Puglian dishes, cooked with local fresh ingredients. There’s also an outdoor courtyard area for al fresco dining in the warmer months, and the Enzo bar is a perfect lounge bar for any time of day.
There’s a huge choice of activities and experiences around the local area that the hotel concierge can arrange, such as cooking classes, wine and olive oil tasting, private tours, hiking outings, horse riding and a boat trips along the Ionian coastline.
