The designers of La Fiermontina spent 10 years building a hotel around the ruins of a 17th-century house within the massive stone ramparts of Lecce’s centro storico. To preserve a sense of place, the pair chose soft Barocco Leccese limestone—an indigenous material used to carve the city’s 18th-century Baroque churches—for the exterior. French design firm Charles-Philippe & Christophe then scattered local fishing baskets, Italian furniture, and elegant European antiques and art from the owner’s personal collection—including pieces by Le Corbusier and Tobia Scarpa—in the public spaces and 16 individually decorated rooms. It all feels as if you’re staying in a friend’s effortlessly chic private home, complete with a swimming pool, 200-year-old olive trees, and beautiful sculptures, including a Cubist couple by Fernand Léger.
