Staying in Monika's little tower house was a magical experience and perfect for our stay in pretty Polignano.
Monika was away during our trip so she arranged for her friend Karin to greet us with an incredibly warm welcome after being met at the train station by rickshaw which was a fun way to arrive.
The house wouldn't work for everyone as there are two ladders, one to the sleeping area and another to a terrace with the most fantastic view. For us though it was perfect, the bedroom was quiet and dark and the terrace a perfect place to eat and relax (we loved the basket lift for food and wine). It has also made me realise that my life is missing a hammock - how did I never know this before!
We cooked lovely meals in the well equipped kitchen though there is no shortage of places to eat in Polignano and good to see a couple of vegetarian menus in the town.
I struggled to find enough information to decide if we should base ourselves in Polignano but am so glad we did (if you are not sure, you won't regret it), we originally found ourselves there as wanted to eat at Grotta Palazzese, unfortunately the welcome there was not as warm as everywhere else in the town, so we spent the money we saved on a boat trip into the caves, dinner at Mint, cocktails in a cave on the beach at Fly and took a car to Grotte di Castellana, this all helped to make our happy holiday perfect.
Thank you Monica and Karin! Xxx
Very good location with a wonderful roof terrace
We loved the little tower - so full of character, and even prettier than in the pictures! The location is just perfect, right at the central square of old town and very close to the lovely city beach. The roof top is fantastic, and the little basket elevator to bring food and drinks to the top is both fun and very practical.
Monica arranged a pic up with a rickshaw at the train station for us and when we arrived to the tower a bottle of wine, some ripe tomatoes and local biscuits were waiting for us on the kitchen table. Could not have been any better! Our flight left late and we could stay until 5 on the last day which we really appreciated. All in all - perfect and we would love to stay again!
We had a wonderful time at Monika's little tower, the terrace is fantastic and the building is located in a great location. Highly recommended!
Monika's house was charm filled. Met by a rickshaw ride from the station straight around the winding streets to her door. We arrived and had both the house and location explained to us in detail. Everything about this location was perfect. I could not recommend more a stay at this very unique home. Hoping to come back!
The Bamboo House was charming! It's perfectly located in the heart of Santa Teresa, a quiet and vibrant neighbourhood of Rio.
The house is nicely decorated, has an artitistic soul and a wonderful garden. We had a very good time there and we highly recommend if you want to enjoy the best of Rio while staying in a confortable place with character.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We loved Monika's little house even more than we expected it. It's located in the most charming little street of the historical center of a dream village perched on an amazing cliff. It's nicely arranged on 3 little floors with a great sound system, a functionnal kitchen, and, more than everything, it feels really cosy and lived in. The real added value of a great Airbnb choice versus any hotel. And if you've any problem, Karin is the kindest and most helpful ressource.
Last minute booking, Monika was great!
Monikas tower (it is really a tower!!) is very beautiful located in a mostly picturesque part of the all town. the house is very cozy and personal, and we really felt that this was our home during our 10 nights stay in august 2013.
The terrace is beautifully set right next to the dome spire, overlooking both the hills, the ocean and the roof landscape. we had some wonderful nights on the terrace that we will remember for the rest of our lives!
we were very friendly welcomed and received some very great tips about restaurants and locations, and polignano really struck us with more than we could imagined.
we made a beautiful life in "our" home, and i would recommend everyone to experience it as well.
Monika's husband Lukas and mother were perfect guests. Friendly and punctual. The apartment was left clean and tidy. I recommend them to all hosts!
