Relais Sky Top is a mansion of 16th century that represents the diamond at the top of the historical centre of Ostuni, a tourist destination in the region of Puglia named “The White City”.Ostuni is built in three hills at a height of 218 meters above sea level and it is located in the Murgia’s area 8 km from the Adriatic coast in the Alto Salento. Relais Sky Top is an ideal base from which to explore the close towns in the Valle d’Itria (Ceglie Messapica, Martina Franca, Locorotondo, Alberobello and Cisternino).
The idea of Italy as a wedding destination brings with it certain expectations, certain familiar scenes — from the palazzos and canals of Venice to the streets of Rome, buzzing with motorbikes; from the red roofs and vineyard rows of Tuscany to the cliff mansions of the Amalfi coast. Ostuni, then, seems like another world. A knotty assemblage of white stone buildings, clustered together atop a hill that rises alone from the plains of Puglia’s Adriatic coast. The view from Relais Sky Top patio, over the whitewashed rooftops and clotheslines of the town, across miles of low olive trees to the edge of the sea, gives a sensation of infinity.
What seems like an unconventional choice for a location in fact plays directly to the hotel’s strength. There is no sense that you are here to “do” Ostuni; though there is a charming Gothic cathedral, an endless supply of historic buildings and any number of picturesque alleyways to wander down, this is not the sort of place where you drop your luggage and rush into the town, snapping photos. This is a retreat, a shelter, perfect venue to celebrate an elegant wedding in total intimacy.

The interiors walk the line between an ascetic minimalism and a stylish luxury, in a palette of creams and off-whites, with the sort of quiet and solid furnishings that are the signifiers of high-end modern interior design. The bathrooms are always characterized by the same minimalist style of wood, marble, stone, archway and products Bulgari for the Suites.
On the ground floor, an old olive press has made way for an intimate Restaurant, with a handful of tables under an arched stone ceiling, and spilling out onto the shaded and quiet patio terrace.
