Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

La Fiermontina is surrounded by serene gardens in the heart of historic Lecce, which sits at the boot of Puglia. History is at your doorstep, with several ancient sites within walking distance, such as the Basilica of Santa Croce and Piazza Mazzini.

Rooms at La Fiermontina

The style of the rooms and suites is very classic, with king-sized beds, Italian furnishings, period stone fireplaces and characterful arched stone ceilings, with neutral colours complemented by carefully chosen works from the owner’s art collection, with striking vintage and antique pieces throughout. The simplicity of the decor makes for a relaxed yet elegant stay.

Food & Drink

The cuisine at La Fiermontina features fresh, high-quality ingredients sourced locally. Meals can be enjoyed in the chic restaurant or in the peaceful walled gardens amongst the olive and orange trees, and the menus include classic Italian dishes such as orecchiette con le cime di rapa and pasticciotto.


Take a dip in the glistening blue pool, sheltered by olive trees, while expert massages and yoga classes will rejuvenate your senses.

The hotel’s boutique sells wares by Migrants du Monde, whose clothes are handmade and embroidered by migrants and refugees in Morocco.

Activities at La Fiermontina

Take advantage of the hotel’s Personal Travel Designers, who will ensure your stay in Lecce is as perfect as possible. Cruise along the coastal Salento roads in a luxury car such as a Mercedes or an Alfa Romeo, or enjoy a private sightseeing tour of Lecce’s famous Baroque architecture. You can also wind your way around the streets in true Italian style on a tuk-tuk.

Foodies can indulge in gourmet picnics, wine and olive tastings and cooking classes where you can master the art of authentic Italian cuisine. For adrenaline-fuelled adventures, go horse riding, trekking and cycling across the panoramic landscapes.
