Fantastic location in the heart of the old town

5 of 5
Firstly I would like to thank Andrea and Simona for making our holiday so very, very special. They went out of there way to ensure we had a holiday to remember. The apartment is on the third floor, which may be difficult for some..... it is so worth it, as the terrace is perfection. The town has many great restaurants but we choose to cook 4 meals at home and eat on the terrace. There's always something going on down below in the harbour. Monopoli is a wonderful town with the most friendliest people. Everyone was very helpful and respectful. There's a great regular train service north and south from the station which is only a 15min stroll from the apartment. Overall I would highly recommend this apartment and Monopoli as a destination.

Property is immaculate

Very much liked Monopoli as it is less touristy than say Polgnano. Very glad we didn't rent a car and went everywhere with an excellent train system or the occasional taxi. Restaurants are really good.
