The Space

This penthouse apartment lies in the heart of Monopoli's historic center, just a few meters from the famous Piazza Garibaldi and at walking distance from the nearest beach and all interesting sights.

The apartment is located above a B&B and restaurant and occupies the entire top floor of the building. The guests of this spacious apartment have also exclusive access to the private roof terraces from where they can enjoy an amazing historic view with the harbor on the background.

The entrance of the building is shared with the below bed & breakfast and you reach the apartment by climbing the 3 flights of comfortable stairs. Here you'll enter the luminous living room with open kitchen and dining area. From the living room you get into the hallway from where you access the first bathroom with shower and toilet and the three bedrooms. The main bedroom has an en suite bathroom with toilet and sink. Than there's a smaller bedroom with 2 single beds (that can be adjoined if necessary) and one last bedroom with bunk beds. The apartment is equipped with air conditioning.

To access the roof terraces you have to leave the apartment and climb the stairs opposite the front door. Here you find the most spectacular part of the building: one large terrace with outdoor kitchen and a second upper roof deck reachable by a flight of stairs, with a superb view of the lively historic centre. The second large kitchen is equipped with all appliances and therefore ideal for outdoor cooking while enjoying the weather together with the whole family, without having to go downstairs every time. Apart from the kitchen the guests can also use the large barbecue and wood-fired oven. Of course the outdoor area is fully equipped with table, chairs and comfortable sun loungers for the utmost relaxation during your holidays.

The Neighborhood

Puglia is a wonderful area to consider. It offers at least one excellent archeological museum, a host of cathedrals dating back to the 10th century, Greek and Roman ruins, a gleaming necklace of lively fishing villages, one of Europe's largest forests, a chain of medieval hilltowns, and some of the very cleanest beaches and water in the Mediterranean.

Getting Around

Monopoli is a very nice coastal town, famous, apart for its beaches and clean waters, also for its charming and lively old town. The countrysides are stunning: immersed in typical mediterranean vegetation, ancient olive trees and lovely almonds, cherries, etc.

What to see:
- CATHEDRAL - it is one of the most attractive examples of Baroque in the entire Apulian region. Its imposing monumental front is flanked on the left by an elegant bell tower that has markedly projecting cornices separating its floors. Notable is the Byzantine icon portraying the Madonna della Madia - legend tells that the sacred image was washed up from the sea on a stack of trunks, that were then used for the building of the trussed roof - very well-preserved and of fine workmanship, it dates from 1280.
- SANTA MARIA DEGLI AMALFITANI - a Romanesque building erected at the beginning of the twelfth century on a pre-existing rock settlement.
- ABBEY OF SANTO STEFANO a fortified complex built in 1086, the remains of an old church survive in the inner courtyard, still inside there are the visible remains of the Roman settlement of Turris Paola, one of the landing places for nearby Egnazia.
- CASTLE bounded on three sides by the sea and protected on the fourth by a moat that no longer exists, it was used as a prison until the beginning of the twentieth century, the castle has been recently restored and today houses the Municipal Archaeological Museum on its first floor.
- PURGATORIO CHURCH with images of skeletons on its doors. Inside you will find familiar Baroque interior but on the adjusting chapel you will find mummies of some local citizens. If the church is closed then you can watch some of the mummies through the street window.
- PALAZZO PALMIERI central square of the Centro Storico.
- MADONNA DEL SOCCORSO CHURCH old grotto with frescoes was dug out of a natural cavity in the rock.

It consists of 99 districts (contrade) characterized by the presence of Masserie Fortificate of ancient roman origin, Rupestrian Churches, neo-classic villas and houses.
The outstanding landscape consists of almond and olive trees, apart from fruit trees of all sort and vegetables cultivation.
