The Monteforte Resort is a historic residence set in the ancient town of Ugento, only 6 km from the sea and the world reknowned coast, the Maldives of Salento. The artful restoration of this historic residence reflects the discerning taste of the owner Salvatore Congedi, fondly known as “The Duke”, whose unique style harmonizes classic architectural lines with stylistic innovation in a relaxing blend of colors, finishes and designer furnishing, in welcoming environments of refined elegance. At the Monteforte Resort, luxury and intimacy are combined in the innovative B&B formula offering guests an ample breakfast of local specialties served in the panoramic garden of the rooftop terrace, as well as access to one of the most exclusive private beaches along the fabulous coast of the Marina di Ugento, in an area reserved especially for Monteforte guests, with coconut palm umbrellas and king-size lounge beds. Monteforte Resort offers 7 Suites, all ample and spacious.

Hello, I have known La Duca when it was his vision. Everything had to be hand picked or left in place to keep that Puglia/ Italian decor. It is a reality a pearl! The comfort and modern facilities with a staff to welcome you with that warm Italian hospitality. His staff and restaurants so very good. The Spa and your well being is their first priority. The sea, and historical sites as well. 💯💯💯

If you are looking for a unique experience while visiting Italy, Ugento is the place for you and the Monteforte Resort is the place to stay. The accommodations are outstanding but the hospitality is even greater. There is no hotel in Italy that will make you feel more welcomed and cared for than this exceptional resort next to the historic Castle of Ugento (Castello di Ugento). During your stay, Cristian takes care of your every need and Salvatore (Il Duca) can get you to the finest restaurants and places to see in the region. Come, stay for a while, I promise you won't be disappointed.

The stay at monteforte resort was very warm. Stayed there to attend friends wedding in town. The room is spacious with beautifully walled bricks and ceiling, along with an authentic espresso machine.The bathroom is spacious, well lit, and amazing with a jacuzzi! Its very cute and the staff is very hospitable. The resort is very clean. Its worth to visit when in Ugento. Breakfast is home made and delicious with all the pastries.And the owner is the most hospitable and warm man i’ve ever met. Thanks Monte-forte for your hospitality.

a fantastic spot in Salento, one of the most charming and stylish regions of Italy! Not to be missed if you travel in the region. The facilities are designed to embrace the guest in italian hospitality and warmth. Salvatore, the owner is an amazing source of informations and suggestions to enhance the experience, the discovery of incredible little treasures in the landscape, in artistic little villages and pristine beaches and transparent waters. Ugento is well positioned to allow the visitor to travel to different locations in Salento making everyday worth the stay!!!! We had one of our best holidays!

We love Monteforte Resort, after four visits, it truly feels like coming home and staying with family. As always the care and service offered by Salvatore and Cristian is all one could hope for and every year there are small changes that only serve to improve the experience. There is still an arrangement with Lido Sabbioso which is a great plus as it is one of the nicest beaches and has a great restaurant. For us there is only one place to stay in Ugento and this is it.

Due to a happy family event we spent the weekend in Ugento. ( Close to anywhere that we needed to be ) There are not so many hotels active or open during this period of the year, that answers our "demands". Monteforte Resorte was recommended to us, and it was a very good recommendation !! Salvatore's or Christian's hospitality was warm and great. What ever you need just ask ! Our room name was " Baia Delle Zagare " - aesthetically very nice and obviously functional. We warmly recommend.

Our fourth time at Monteforte and as always a pleasure to return to the beautiful rooms and warm and professional staff. There is an added, new breakfast area on the roof, with views on the countryside and castle. Breakfast as always delicious and served with a smile from Cristian, despite the challenging weather this September. We often recommend this lovely place to friends, and many have stayed here and enjoyed the hospitality and lovely rooms from beginning to end

This summer I was fortunate to spend two weeks with my brother and his family in this beautiful, spacious, clean and friendly resort. The wealth of local knowledge provided by Salvatore, the owner, directed us to local attractions for history, art, fabulous food and pristine beaches of the area. Whilst Christian, and his staff, provided for our every need with his excellent personal customer service at the resort, not to mention remembered all our breakfast preferences !

My wife and I discovered this gem last minute while traveling in Puglia. The property is exquisite, clean and spacious. The daily breakfast is a feast! The proprietor, Salvatore makes sure that your experience is unforgettable. He and his staff are very attentive and we highly recommend this resort. The resort has an agreement with a great beach nearby: Lido Sabbioso. We will be back.
