Lovely apartment and tastefully done up to a very high standard. Gianni was incredibly helpful; coming to meet us late the night we arrived, offering recommendations before and during our stay and allowing us to check out late on our last day as my dad was unwell and needed to rest before our journey back. Very happy we found the apartment and hope to come back and stay again soon.

Communication with Louise is easy and fast, the local girl waited for us as agreed and let us in the flat at 11am which was very convenient. As we love Monopoli and this flat is our favourite, we are definitely coming back again.
