A Puglian gem in ancient Conversano, with design-led interiors and breakfast on the rooftop terrace

Rich in quintessential Puglian charm, Iulius Suite & Spa sits pretty among the ancient marvels of Conversano, a sleepy town in the Bari province, six miles from the olive-green waters of the Adriatic coast. The charming B&B is set in a 16th Century building, brought into the 21st Century with a stylish revamp and a smattering of essential mod-cons. Behind its vanilla-hued facade, this Italian gem is home to elegant suites, a rooftop breakfast terrace and serene spa – all natural stone and vaulted ceilings.

Here, it’s all about slipping down a few gears; stroll around the history-rich town, dive into the glistening sea at Polignano a Mare, discover the caves of Castellana (the largest in Europe) or sign up for a traditional cookery class to master Apulian classics. Ripe for exploration, the region is peppered with interesting sites, from the conical trulli of Alberobello and mighty Castel del Monte to sun-baked Salento and Sassi of Matera, known for its ancient cave dwellings.

Good to know

Iulius spa services are available only by reservation and the spa requires a fee for entry.
