Functional and pleasant, great location

  • 3 of 5

The property wasn't as we expected having looked at the photos, it was more old fashioned. We stayed in the 2nd Floor apartment which had a small balcony, 2 bedrooms a small kitchen and dining space with a table and 3 chairs. Before we went Emilio had said we would have to stay in his one bedroom apartment for one night which wasn't ideal but I really loved the look of the decor of this place and decided to go ahead with the booking. Days before we arrived he emailed saying he had resolved the problem and we didnt need to move, I thought great but when we arrived the apartment didn't look anything like the photo's. We I mentioned this he said I thought this would be better for you, the apartment was pleasant enough, clean and had most things we needed, however little things like enough crockery, 2 hangers in the cupboards mean't that attention to detail were not adhered to. Emilio was very pleasant and offered us to stay in the nicer apartment downstairs 3nights later, we saw the apartment it was lovely just like the photo's but it didnt have a balcony and the kitchen was in one of the bedrooms (studio like) we would of had to pay extra money for cleaning if we changed apartments in addition to having to pack our things again, so we decided to stay where we were. In the end we liked the apartment and loved the area. Emilio is new to Home Away and if things were a bit clearer to us I would have been happier. We did love Monopoli and the apartment was located well and suitable enough in the end. I would stay there again and would recommend it for a small group, max of 4. I would recommend any future travellers to ask Emilio to specify exactly which apartment you will be allocated and which photo's relate to yours so that there is no disappointment when you arrive. The photo's make the apartment look bigger than they actually are. The wifi worked well and it helped having aircon. The bathroom was nice, beds were comfortable to sleep in and the flat was clean. It wasn't noisy as the streets are that narrow cars can't really go there. The roof terrace was nice but we didnt use it as we didn't have time and it was 2 floors up so wasn't that convenient but at least it is there as an option. I hope this helps future travellers

Not an Accurate Description

  • 3 of 5

Apartment GIRA, listed as 2 bedrooms, 2 baths. At check in we were told we could not enter the second bedroom or bath. We did not question why (our mistake), but after our second night, that room was rented to another person; there was a private entrance to it. Through the thin door we could hear every word; light came into our room at night around the door and through key hole. Also, washing machine is listed as part of the rental, but at check in we were told there is a charge of €10 per load. GIRA was very clean and nice, but we felt deceived and should have questioned why we did not have access to the rest of what we understood we had rented. I would recommend this rental ONLY if what is included in the rental is clarified.

very beautiful and perfect located appartment

  • 5 of 5

the appartement is very beautiful, very clean, equipped wirh everything you need and perfectly located in the historical centre of the city, you walk just 5 minutes to the citybeaches, nice restaurants and supermarkets are around the corner. the treatment of the owner was excellent, helpful all the time, even they gave us a small snack, when we arrived. we felt like at home. there is a terrace on the top of the building, which you can use and have nice breakfast or dinner. The whole city is very beautiful, you should try. Collectively we had an magnificent, unforgetable stay and hopefully will come back next summer.

Monopoly is, on the Adriatic, one of the busiest ports and populous region. Its quaint old town of early medieval origin, superimposed to the remains of a fortified village messapico early as the fifth century. C., overlooking the sea surrounded by high walls.

Monopoly is also known as the city of a hundred lands. The countryside is in fact divided into several locations called contrade, whose names evoke ancient farmhouses disappeared, the presence of a farm, a church or other historical and geographical references.

Here the seafaring tradition is alive and present in the historical fishing boats in the harbor with its "goiter" (small boats of fishermen), in the calloused hands of shipwrights and artisans shipbuilding, in the eyes of countless fishermen, but especially in that sense of community that comes together and gives renewed in seafaring roots. The port, integrated into the urban fabric, has a function as a link between the old town and the city. And 'one stop multi-purpose, because it is dedicated to commercial traffic (fishing and other materials) and tourism. They insist on the dock also shipyards, so it is easy to find in the construction of hulls of small and medium size. Ancient crafts such as the carpenter living with a structure design and implementation in step with technology. The link of the city with the sea is also celebrated in sports, sailing thanks to the presence of a very active section of the Italian Naval League, rowing with one of the oldest rowing clubs in Italy, and still Diving in seabed rich biodiversity, fishing tourism on board the craft vessels of the historic fleet Monopoli.
