What a delightful surprise this place was. We found it on Booking.com at an unbelieveablly modest price and thought we'd check it out before committing to a multi-day stay. It was probably the best deal we've had in 6 weeks of traveling in Italy. A studio apartment with kitchenette and a terrace with a fabulous view for less than 50 euros/night! The property is on a ridge overlooking Vieste and the Adriatic. It is nicely landscaped although the main feature is the pool. It must have cost a fortune. Huge, round, pristine, pond-sized pool on a bench overlooking the city and sea, with a clear plexiglass wall at the edge so you can sea the view while swimming or sunning (see my photos.) A small cantina next to the pool is open for about 4 hours morning and afternoon for cappuccino and other beverages. The rooms are a little worn, but everything works and the staff immediately resolves any and all problems. For the price you can't beat it. And speaking of the staff: Rosaria and Daniele are fabulous. They are there from morning to evening (must be 12 hour shifts!) constantly attending to guests, cleaning, landscaping, serving drinks, always with a smile. I commented to Rosaria about her long hours and she replied genuinely, "I love to work." At that hotel, I can understand why. Family-oriented, friendly, quiet, safe, clean, inexpensive. What more can you ask? Oh, we planned to stay 3 days but after our first night we extended that to 5 days and we were still sad to leave at the end. Warning: the beds are hard (we put blankets under us), and there's no AC, just a fan, so it could get pretty warm in July and August. We were there in late June and it was OK. Nice breeze at night with the terrace doors open. We swam in the pool each morning to wake up and whenever we got hot. Lots of great sandy beaches nearby (5 minute drive). Vieste is pretty, lively at night, and interesting. Also not expensive. Lots of locals and local culture still dominates. If you are looking for something off the beaten track, this is a great option.
