Overview

About the property

Lovely 90 square meters apartment in the heart of Monopoli's old town centre, with a wonderful sight of the seaside and with indipendent terrace. The house is sat 30 mt away from Carlo V castle, 50 mt away from the beach (rocky beach) and 5 minutes away (by foot) from well-known beaches of Portavecchia, Porto Rosso e Porto Bianco; you can also choose between free beaches and equipped ones. The location of the apartment makes you able to live the town in the total serenity, without the need of using a car.

IN CASE, WE CAN RENT MOTOR-SCOOTERS AND CARS BY NOTICING IT IN THE BOOKING

You have everything you could need in the neighborhood: supermarkets, the fresh fish and the fruit markets, bars, shops, pharmacies, DISCOS and whatever you could need during your holiday. The newly rinovated apartment (dicember 2010) is excellently well-refined. We recommend it to couples looking for a love nest or to families with children.

The house is the ideal one if you're looking for a holiday distinguished by relax, sea and, why not, by some nightlife fun.

In old town centre there are several services: typical trattorie, open-air bars and nightclubs (reachable by foot from the house) while, at Capitolo (a Monopoli's contrada) you can find discos and pub for young guys.

The house is composed by a spacious kitchen (bar area, stools, chairs and equipped hob - tableware, refrigerator, pots) and a beautiful living room with sofa, tv lcd 32", dvd player, stero, etc.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

To avoid unpleasant misunderstandings, complaints or claims, it's better to previously inform about the presence

Very poor service, house not practical !

  • 1 of 5

What a deception ! The pictures on the site don't show the reality

The house is built on 4 levels, one room per level ! 45 stairs (yes !) to get from the kitchen to the terrace (better have good legs and food very hot if you want to eat upstairs). There is not even a tray to carry the dishes etc and limit the number of ups and downs !

"Superb view to the sea" ???? Definitely not : yes, you can partly see the sea from the rooftop (the best point of the house, with its situation in the city), but between other roof tops, church roof and TV antennas.

The site says "parking" ? No private parking at all and you are not allowed to drive in the city. You thus have to park 10mn away from the house (I never got lucky enough to park closer for free in a 1 week stay).

WiFi ? yes, but based on a 4G routeur that does not work inside the house (not at all or poorly). OK from the terrace, but ... 45 steps to do Internet on your computer, the same with your smartphone of course :-(. Dowload rate toped at 300Kbps, upload over 1Mbps.

90m² ? I doubt it, or it includes the terrace

Bathroom is tiny, mirror broken and 1 light bulb missing

The picture of the double bed shows 2 bedside lamps ? Not for us, there was only one, none in the other room (and the house is supposed to host up to 6 persons !)

Kitchen poorly equiped (one pan, one coffee machine for one mug ; preparing the breakfast takes time..., house not so cleaned when we arrived (walking bare foot shows it all !)

No iron nor iron table when we arrived ; we had to ask for it.

4G router out of order ; I had to ask for a charger

Only one AC remote control working for 2 AC units 2 floors apart and it did not seem to bother our landlord... It was a mere problem of dead battery and I had to ask for them.

Paint on the wall is partly falling down and not so clean.

However, the house is well situated close to a small sand beach, the street is calm and there is AC (but only in the kitchen and in the parents room, not in the kids room).

Monopoly is superb but I will definitely not recommand this house, at least, not at this price !

Splendida la città, bellissima la casa!

  • 5 of 5

La casa è bellissima, spaziosa e fresca. A due passi dalle splendide spiagge del centro e da tutte le attrazioni proncipali: pub, ristoranti tipici e scorci suggestivi per romantiche passeggiate ma non solo! Sono entusiasta della città e del soggiorno, servizio impeccabile! Tornerò, a presto!

Casa Bellissima Città Stupenda

  • 5 of 5

È stata una bella esperienza soggiornare a casa di Rocco l’appartamento è bellissimo e perfettamente arredato. Il punto di forza è sicuramente la terrazza con vista mare e dell'affascinante città vecchia.. Il proprietario davvero molto accogliente e disponibile a consigliarci dove cenare o cosa visitare. Lo consiglio al 100%.
