comfortable apartment in excellent location

5 of 5
The apartment was more impressive than in the photographs. In particular the balcony is large and private. The rooms were spacious and the air conditioning was very effective. The bed linen was of good quality cotton (so often we have been given slightly nasty nylon sheets in Italy). Although the view is restricted there was always something going on in the port to keep us entertained. It is the top flat in an old stone palazzo so there are a lot of steps but it is worth the climb. Great central location with dozens of restaurants and bars within a minutes walk but the flat is surprisingly quiet. There is plenty of free parking available though often we could not get as close to home as we might have wanted. And we were happily untroubled by zanzari. Monopoli is a wonderful town with some great beaches. Highly recommended.
