Algiers is sometimes called "the white city". And so is Lisbon. So is Ostuni too, at the utmost southern tip of Italy's heel. A glazed cake with a pervading sense of harmony. Arches and vaults, stairs and terraces, volumes and proportions : and "basta". Enough. No need to fill anything up. La Sommità got it. A relais more than a... More

The location of this hotel is perfect, in the hearth of this beautiful white city . The staff is very nice and helpfull. You can not reach the hotel by car, but when you call the reception they come immediately to help you to the parking and then drive you and your luggage to the hotel in their Mini! The... More

I stayed at the Sommita from October 18-25. I had a beautiful room, overlooking the garden and the ocean. I got a bit sick and the staff went beyond the call of duty to make me comfortable, until I got better. The restaurant manager could not do enough for us. The staff at the front desk were so pleasant. If... More

The location is nice up the hill in Ostuni, the room just standard with a bed of 160 cm, the airco leeking on the terrace, toweldryer not working... The hotel has some beautiful old details, but the rest has no attraction, faded orchids, paintings of every style on sale on the walls, old modern furniture. The reception area is unpersonal,...

This is a very, very good hotel indeed and any minor criticisms should be read with that basic judgement in mind. The location and setting are unbeatable; at the top of the old town with stunning views over the countryside to the coast. Drinks on the terrace at sunset make a memorable occasion, and the tranquil, laid-back ambience is complemented... More

Our 4th stop during our month in Italy was to Ostuni. Our only complaint was that we didn't know there was a shuttle to take us from their parking lot up to the hotel, where no car can or should drive! This village is so charming, and the hotel did not disappoint! Wonderful, friendly, helpful staff. The shuttle (and API... More

This is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. The rooms are newly renovated, modern and and are decorated with neutral colors to blend in with Ostuni, also called "The White City." Our room was large and luxurious with a private terrace. It couldn't be more comfortable. Around the hotel are patios with large, comfortable furniture that you... More

After a few days in a Masseria in Puglia we had booked to stay here for two nights. Ostuni is nice but in hindsight probably just better for a day trip and we felt this hotel was really not worth the stay. The hotel is clean and well maintained and well built considering its locations. Be prepared to walk alot... More

We stayed in one of the Suites with views to the Adriatic Sea. The room is beautifully appointed, with a lounge, sitting area, and the most comfortable bed that I've experienced on our holiday. There are outdoor lounges and tables scattered around the complex, which could be used at anytime, and we're great to sit in while reading a book,... More
