A Charming residence
History and contemporaneity. Comfort and style. Harmony and unconventional beauty. Clementina is all this: a charming Apulian residence, overlooking the Corso Umberto I of Putignano, the oldest carnival city in the world. An accurate restoration project has transformed the spaces of the building into environments with a strong personality, where the value of time and architecture is enriched with a trendy and refined touch. With the spirit of Apulian hospitality and a passion for design, we have taken care of every detail to make our home your home.
Beauty and comfort
Design elements, contemporary works of art from the “Orizzonti” gallery of Ostuni in the common areas, fine fabrics and superior comfort: Clementina sets new standards for hospitality, offering its guests a unique experience and an intimate and sophisticated atmosphere. Care for details, personalized services and cutting-edge technologies ensure guests a modern and exclusive comfort, to satisfy every need.
100 years of history
Clementina was the name of the noblewoman who owned this ancient palace. Everything started with her, at the end of the 19th century, to become, today, a residence of historical and artistic interest for the Ministry of cultural heritage and activities. In the 1950s, the palace was donated to the Sisters Adorers of the Blood of Christ. For sixty years it was first an orphanage and then an ecclesiastical institute. In 2011 the sisters left the palace: thus ended a cycle of history. After five years of abandonment, the palace returned to live in the dreams of a new owner. It was the time to restore the beauty of the palace: a new story was about to begin.
The restoration works
The restoration works started in 2018. The purpose was to restore the splendor of spaces, enhance the original shapes and bring out every adornment respecting history. It took a year of work to recover the ancient beauty and furnish the rooms with new comforts and technologies, to offer guests the charm of the past and the comfort of the future. The antique damaged floors were replaced by hand-decorated cementine tiles, made with the same techniques of the past, to give the spaces an incomparable retrò charm. Among the most complex interventions, the recovery of the frescoed wallpaper of a room. A meticulous cataloging, recovery and color integration work that has made this room one of the most evocative space of the charming residence.
