The house

The house which is situated in the old part of Monopoli, Centro Storico, has 2 apartments:

The house TERRAZZA SAN LEONARDO has 3 floors: On 1st. floor you’ll find a bedroom with a double bed, a storage room and a little sitting room with a double sofa bed and flat screen TV. Access to the bedroom is through this room. On 2nd floor there is a large modern kitchen-dining room with dining space for up to 10 persons (when using extensions for the table). There is also a brand new nice bathroom with toilet and shower as well as another brand new bathroom with shower and washbasin. On the 3rd. floor you’ll find a little sitting room with a double sofa bed and a little working area giving access to the master bedroom with a double bed and a nice view from a little balcony. Further there is a little toilet on 3rd. floor. Due to the fact that you have to pass through the rooms with the sofa beds to enter the real bedrooms, the house is more suitable for 2 families than for 3 or 4 couples as you might disturb each other.

On 4th. floor you’ll find a small room with washing machine and storage for the terrace furniture. Through this room you enter the terrace which is app. 20m2. On the terrace you’ll find tables and chairs for 8 people as well as a little sofa and 2 sitting chairs. There is a lovely view over the roofs of Monopoli and the many churches which form a lovely foreground for the sunset. Here you can sit for hours just looking, listening to the church bells and enjoy the water in the background.

Terrazza San Leonardo is equipped with almost everything – also things that you often miss in holiday apartments, e.g. most kicthen utensils, good bed lamps, hooks where you need them, wireless internet, cook books and lots of maps, brochures and books about Apulia. And of course a dishwasher and washing machine – and a clothes line on the terrace. You can easily stay just 2 or 4 persons in the house, – in this case you just don’t make use of the sofa beds. The house is not suitable for children under 5-6 years and for persons with limited mobility due to many and partly steep stairs.

In this house you are among the local inhabitants who are nice and kind – and sometimes a bit loud – and it’s really “living with the natives”…

You can rent bed linen and towels. Bring a few dish cloths and dish towels as well as beach towels from home.

The ground floor of the house is a separate apartment for 2 persons and is handy to rent as well if you are more than 8 persons.

Close to the house you’ll find the sandy beach Porta Vecchia with lovely clear water, and if you walk a few more minutes you’ll find cliffs to jump from and many smaller beaches. There are several small grocery stores, restaurants and cafés just around the corner. Outside Centro Storico you’ll find the newer part of town dating back to the 1850’ies with even more shops, cafés, restaurants and lovely squares.
