The red palace in the heart of Puglia’s “White City,” Ostuni, has been fully restored. Standing in contrast to the whitewashed buildings of Ostuni, Paragon 700’s red brick façade surrounds a garden and swimming pool.
Here’s what guests can expect: French parquet flooring throughout all 11 rooms and suites, which also have stonewashed bed linens, cathedral ceilings, period frescos and fireplaces. Each guest room is different, some offering terraces, balconies or, in the case of the Paragon Suite, a sunken bathtub and private terrace with sun loungers. Guests can even buy select furniture and décor to take home.
As far as dining, head chef Giovanni Cerroni, the protégé of Michelin-starred Paulo Airaudo, offers a menu that celebrates local ingredients and cuisine. Open to guests and locals alike, Restaurant 700 will offer an intimate dining experience in addition to local vintages from the hotel’s wine cellar. Be sure to swing by Bar 700 for an aperitif, nightcap or other cocktail.
