“Elegant, gorgeous, comfortable,welcoming”
Reviewed 2 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

If you really want to experience true local Apulien/Puglien lifestyle this apartment rental represents quite well as one of the choices.
This apartment is elegant, gorgeous, comfortable and welcoming. Very elegant but warm, the style of the apartment is far away from the standardized and anonymous style of the apartments usually for rental.
Located in the old city area there was a vibrant and friendly atmosphere with interesting things to do close by, including the cafes and restaurants in the street below. .
It was a hassle free booking, payment and arrival. Valentina met us for coffee and gave us local tips on the supermarket, restaurants and sights which was helpful as we were staying for 2 weeks. Valentina is terrific.
The apartment itself is absolutely gorgeous, comfortable and spacious; as it appears on the website. And it's dining/kitchen area is very pleasant and roomy enough; the kitchen was well equipped, 2 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms an oasis of calm and beauty.
The most challenging of all is to haul your luggage up 3 fl. of relatively narrow stairs since there is no elevator (but I think that is typical of many Italian places including some hotels). So I probably would not recommend this to the physically challenged nor the really elderly or very pregnant. But if you can overcome that, you will be rewarded with true local living for a short or long stay.
We were delighted and relieved to see the apartment was exactly as represented in photos on the web site. It was modern, spacious and very clean. We truly felt at home immediately, from the church bells to the roof top views from the terrace.
Staying at this apartment made our trip to Monopoli exceptional.
I would highly recommend it. I would stay there again in a heart beat.

“Simply Crazy !”

Be wary of the very attractive description made on the owner's website. It does not correspond to the reality. This appartment, although restored well, is in fact, badly equiped, difficult to access(distant parking lots), very noisy and expensively compared with the proposed services.
It is located on the second floor of a very narrow house accessible by a very oblique and dangerous stair. The main bed room looks over a very famous and frequented trattoria « La Locanda dei Mercanti » (we definitly recommended it to you) and of an American Bar opened very late during the night, in a very busy pedestrian street. Impossible to sleep before 1:00 am in the morning, even much more late during the week-end. The lounge is a simple sofa situated in a dark corner in front of the kitchen and of the main entrance (not very cosy...).
Regarding equipments and services we would imagine in a simple country holliday cottage. No washer the linen nor the dishes (seen practised rates we would have been able to expect at least the one or the other one). No vacuum cleaner, no coffee maker nor a whistling kettle. No air-conditionner not of freezzer thus no ice cubes. But it is well known : in the Apulia it is never warm, is'nt it ???
We had to complain with the owner – very shocked by our « luxury requirements » - to obtain at the end of 2 days after our arrival : a coffepot of small volume (only 3 small cups while the rent is planned to welcome 6 people...) ; one burns out bread ; an iron and ironing board ; bedside lamps. All theese basic equipment was not available upon our arrival. Incredible but true !
Concerning TV channel we were Lucky  : 40 channels all in... german, no single italian channel !
If we add a cut of water and a breakdown of water heater during our stay, then we reach the highlight !
What of positive will you tell me ? A confortable bathroom (but one spend there not the day), a pleasant terrace, not panoramic (as discribed by the owner) but direct view on the roofs and a very oblique staircase (again) to access.
Overall we shall retain especially the kindness of Valentina wich welcomed us and did her utmost to do a service to us. We really appreciated.
Important recommandation. If you stay there from October till April, you will have to warm with the kitchen oven. Otherwise you will make the owner call up – who lives in Germany – which will suggest you sending a technician to start the central heating. Very easy ! But don't worry : it is well known in the Apulia it is never cold... Is'nt it ???
