The hotel is set in a wonderful old part of the Ostuni historic area - quiet, elegant and so historic. Hotel is part of the Relais Chateaux and as such service and staff are very well trained and service oriented. We asked for a room with a view in the main area of the hotel and was wonderful with a...

Beyond beautiful. Totally quiet peaceful elegant simple and very special. Built into an old mansion, modern, super clean, high level of everything i want to live here the rest of my days.

Everything was about our stay was perfect. The staff were so warm and friendly. The rooms were clean and made up everyday. Make sure to pick a room with a view, nothing like waking up to the view of the olive trees and Adriatic sea from the highest point in Ostuni.

We stayed here two nights as part of our two-week tour to Puglia and found it charming and lovely but not without some minor glitches. The rooms are various and unique: we traded rooms with a friend traveling with us so that we would have the bed suited to two people and he the shower suited to a tall person....

Really clean, very comfortable and with lots of unexpected facilities for a hotel in centro storico. Breakfast let the whole show down. It was a buffet and the quality was good but the popular items were not replenished by the staff and we were at breakfast at 9.30 a whole hour before breakfast ended. Croissants were not on the buffet...

Stayed here as part of group tour and shared room with a friend. The room was lovely but would probably better suit a couple as the platform bed with the view was only used by one of us and the other slept on a sofa bed. Breakfast offering was very good. As noted by others, wifi is erratic but the...

This was our favorite hotel for the week in Puglia. The rooms and views were breathtaking. The cream theme for decor was pristine, modern and calming. The only thing that I would skip is dinner at El Cielo if you do not care for the gastronomy approach to cooking. Charming town, charming hotel!

We arrived at La Sommita last week for the final part of our holiday in Puglia. We had spent £245 per night to stay in a suite (for 4 nights). On arrival we were given the 'Il colle suite' which was very plain in decor and did not have other facilities that the other suites clearly boasted (luxurious bathroom, view...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Relais La Sommita' is a mansion of 16th century and represents the diamond at the top of the historical centre of Ostuni, with 15 elegant rooms divided in Deluxe, Deluxe View, Suite and one Master Suite.This is a retreat, a shelter, a moment of quiet in an over stimulated life, an environment that meant to envelop rather than impress.The interiors walk the line between an ascetic minimalism and a stylish luxury, in a palette of creams and off-whites, with the sort of quiet and solid furnishings that are the signifiers of high-end modern interior design. Stone walls, natural textile, wood are the materials that characterize the interiors of Relais La Sommita. The bathrooms are always characterized by the same minimalist style of wood, marble, stone, archway and Culti brands products and Bulgari for the Suites. ... more   less
