About Giambattista Comes

Gianni was born in 1971 in Monopoli, Apilia, as the son of a traditional fishing and boat-building family. After he went to sea himself as a boy and a young man, and learned pike fishing, he went off into the world, working in hotels and restaurants in England, USA, Canada, and Germany. After Gianni had travelled the world and spent 15 years in Germany, he still loved his homeland. "I had such a zeal for discovery in my younger years. I lived my life amongst different people and cultures, but the deep bond with my hometown of Monopoli was always with me. After all of my business and private travels, I found out that even though the world has so much beauty and diversity, my native Apulia is a true diamond in the rough. Everything is at home here. It is a land with particular beauty, history, and culture, and is further enriched with gastronomical delights from special, honest people. I would like to use my deep bond to this place to show people this other side of Italy. You can't always plan something special. It just happens." In the last few years, Gianni has worked in various first-class restaurants in Munich as a manager. His loving manner, Italian composure, as well as his generosity and competence will be very helpful. 
Gianni loves good wine and has become a connoisseur with no training. His culinary art is, without a doubt, taken from his homeland.

Brilliant apartment and welcoming host

  • 5 of 5

We rented the apartment for three nights in March 2017 and had a great stay there. 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.

Casa Alto mare is a fantastic appartment and a lovely place to stay . The location is perfect. It is in the centre, between restaurants and shops. The sea is nearby, you can see it on the terrace.

The appartment itself is very beautiful , spacious, clean and really nice decorated. The bathrooms are tasteful, the beds are comfortable and the kitchen is good equipped.

The roof terrace is spacious, well equipped (with chairs , sunbeds, umbrella's etc.. It has even a second kitchen, so you can cook and dine on your own terrace with a view.

The host was and very gently and helpful. he gave us a lot of useful tips for restaurants , sightseeing etc..

Der Ort, die Wohnung und vor allem Gianni, der Vermieter, sind einfach wundervoll.

Monopoli ist trotz Tourismus ein ganz normaler Fischerort geblieben, der sehr hübsch ist und zentral direkt am Meer liegt.

Es gibt nette Caffes, wo die Einheimischen zum Caffe und Schwätzchen vorbeikommen und immer was los ist.

(Tipp: Caffe Roma, super Cornetto com Crema und köstliches Eis)

Und leckere Restaurants, in denen man aus dem "Catch of the day" seinen Fisch aussuchen kann.

(Tipp: La Locanda Soul Porto, toller Fisch und sehr nette Bedienung)

Die Wohnung mit seiner grandiosen Dachterrasse ist wunderschön. Sie liegt zentral, ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, blitzsauber und bietet alles, was das Herz begehrt. Sogar eine Heizung, die prima funktioniert.

Und dann ist da noch Gianni, der Vermieter. Er ist immer für einen da, zeigt gut gelaunt "sein" Monopoli und kennt den ganzen Ort.

Wir waren zu viert im November dort, sind rundum zufrieden und begeistert und kommen sicher wieder.

Am liebsten würden wir zehn Sterne vergeben.

Lieber Gianni, danke für alles!
