We spent two short days at La Sommita. What a perfect experience from the moment you enter the door to the moment you leave. The staff, is there to tend to your every needs, while being as discreet as possible. The one star Michelin restaurant on the premises helps a lot. The breakfast is sumptuous with breads and danish all cooked on the premises, bio juices and jams, fresh burrata, mozzarella, and delicious cured meats. The restaurant is outstanding. The rooms have very very high ceilings, they are large, airy and lots of light gets in through the window. There used to be a castle on the premises once upon a time and the transformation to a Relais hotel-is very successful. Views from the terraces are great as you see all the way to the sea and parts of the town of Ostuni. A shuttle service takes you from a reserved parking to the hotel as it is impossible to approach the premises by car. There are only 15 rooms and every client feels special. A terrific experience.

Very cosy hotel in an old castle. New furniture , big rooms. Attention at the suites which are nice and spacious on their website but no window !!! A big room on 2 level without any natural light.
Restaurants very good. Breakfast fantastic with home made food, best prosciuto and cheese. One of the most correct breakfast I’ve ever had.
Location is perfect on the pedestrian area. Parking in a special parking but the hotel provide a shoutle car for going anuwere.
I recomand this hotel.

A top notch property in a lovely town. From start to finish I felt like a special guest to this beautiful hotel. Greeted by the management. Escorted to my room. Given a tour with a glass of Apulian sparkling wine. Incredible views from the room. A special feature of the hotel are the lovely common areas for lounging and relaxing. These are both indoor and outdoor. It really felt like home. The service was exceedingly friendly and professional at all levels. Breakfast was delightful with fresh fruit. Sweets. Several egg options. Served in a room with a working fireplace. Rooms are all marble and stone and floors can be chilly so bring your slippers in the winter. :-) Cielo restaurant had an exciting and reasonable Christmas lunch which made for a lovely holiday retreat. Thank you for a relaxing stay.

My friends and I flew into Brindisi and took a side trip to Ostuni upon our arrival. What an enchanting town! Crooked, cobbled streets with charming shops and restaurants explain why it’s appealing to tourists. La Sommita Relais was the perfect respite - with stunning hilltop views of the Adriatic coast, comfortable and well appointed rooms, and a restaurant, which served delicious food. The hotel, in a 16th century palazzo, is beautifully renovated. Our only concern was the room design - our “suite” was two stories, and the staircase getting to the bedroom was absolutely treacherous. No railings and narrow treads at the corner turn left navigating them an exercise in agility and luck. Overall, however, La Sommita was exceptional. Highly recommended.
