Park Hotel San Michele Review

Built around a 19th-century former winery, this hotel has long been a focal point in the area, hosting visiting dignitaries—including Pope John Paul II, who stopped in for a meal in 1989—and even a "Miss Italia" contest (in 1975). Today, with its lovely gardens and pool, it makes a pleasant base in the warm months. Cheaper rooms, overlooking the town, only have a shower, but larger ones have garden views and a bathtub—"superior" rooms have a whirlpool tub and some have a rooftop solarium. All are spacious and include nice touches like complimentary bowls of fruit. The elegant restaurant serves Apulian cuisine.
