Bottom Line

Residence Rivamare Ugento offers simple apartments near the beach. The facilities are designed for a longer stay with amenities that families will appreciate: free parking, coin-operated laundry, and babysitting services among them. There’s no on-site restaurant or swimming pool, but the beach is one of the most pristine in the area and nearby companies rent out water toys and gear. The apartments themselves vary in size and some have better views than others, but all include kitchenettes. Be warned that linens and towels cost extra. For a more chic vacation on the same strip of coast, check out the private beach and saltwater swimming pool at L'Isola di Pazze.

Scene

Three-story property on a pristine, uncrowded beach

The exterior of Residence Rivamare Ugento is made up of neutral cement walls with bright blue shutters. Inside, the small lobby houses a jumbled looking reception desk. There's an outdoor patio with wicker furniture and a BBQ for guests to use, most of whom are families on extended stays. The sandy beach is one of the best in the area and doesn't get as crowded as more popular destinations.

Location

On a quiet cul-de-sac and close to several dining venues

Residence Rivamare Ugento is located close to the sea on a quiet cul-de-sac without much traffic. The neighborhood has several restaurants, bars, and cafes within walking distance, including the eateries Trattoria Lido Mania and I Colori del Mare. The beautiful tourist destinations of Gallipoli (to the west) and Santa Maria di Leuca (to the east) are about a 30-minute drive from the property. Parking is free.

Rooms

Apartments vary in size, though all come with kitchenettes. There's an extra charge for linens.

The Rivamare’s apartments vary in terms of size (the largest sleeps six), setup, furnishings, and views, with some spaces facing the sea. Some also have an outdoor dining table or a bed that abuts the indoor table. Air-conditioning and kitchenettes are standard, but expect to pay an additional fee for the use of linens and towels. Noise isn't an issue and all windows have screens to let in the sea breeze.

Features

Items can be rented for the beach; guided excursions are available as well

The sandy beach is the real draw at Residence Rivamare Ugento. Chairs and umbrellas can be rented by the day and there's a local company that rents out beach gear like kayaks. There isn't an on-site restaurant but the hotel offers free delivery from nearby bakers and grocery stores so guests can easily cook in the apartments or at the communal BBQ. Guided excursions in the area are easily arranged, including everything from a visit to the olive oil mill to taking folk dance classes. A coin-operated laundry is available, as are babysitting services. There is no pool, gym, or spa.
