Beautiful stay in Monopoli "Villa Borghese"

  • 5 of 5

We traveled as two families (ten people) to Monopoli and stayed in this wonderful place "Villa Borghese". Before we got to Monopoli we thought that we would share one big house all together but when we arrived we were positively surprised to find that each family had its own home, right accros from eachother. One house is a little smaller and can occupy 4-5 people. The bigger house can occupy 6-7 people. As we were 4 and 6 people it fit perfecty for us and each family could have its own privacy. Both homes were simple but clean and the beds were very comfortable. We did not meet the landlord himself but his father who, even though we arrived late in the evening, welcomed us warmly and showed us everything. In each house we were welcomed by a bottle of self-made wine, self-made olive oil and fresh cooled water. Both houses had a dish washer and a washing maschine. The landlord's father came once or twice to check if we were fine but other than that we were completely left to ourselves which is what we wanted.

The area is very quiet and non-touristic. To reach the beach you must take a car and it takes about 20-25 minutes to get there which was no problem for us. For shopping groceries we can recommend the "Euro Spin" which has good products for low prices.

The weather was perfect. Usually we had about around 30° C, no rain and not humid.

We can fully recommend the "Villa Borghese" to anyone who is interested in a quite, not too "touristy", sunny place, esspecially with kids. We would go there again! Thank you.

Tolle Wohnung für Familien und Ruhe suchende

  • 5 of 5

Beschreibung und Fotos vermitteln einen guten Eindruck; die Wohnung ist sehr groß, zu viert (2 Kinder, 4 und 7) hatten wir Platz satt. Die (einzigen) Nachbarn waren freundlich unaufdringlich - gut zu wissen, dass jemand da ist, sonst hat man nichts mit ihnen zu tun, wenn man nicht will.

Der Vermieter ist 1 A, zuverlässig, zuvorkommend, nett.

Die Umgebung ist stark zersiedelt, es gibt keinen richtigen Dorfkern. Aber Rtg. Monopoli kommt man bald an einem Laden mit Tankstelle vorbei. Ohne Auto insgesamt kaum zu empfehlen. Mit Auto allerdings ist man schnell in den umliegenden Städtchen, die alle sehr schön sind.

Die öffentlichen Strände um Monopoli sind schmutzig. Die Strandbäder bei Capitulo (ca. 15 Min mit dem Auto von der FeWo sind sauber, feinsandig und flach. Mitte Oktober ist allerdings die Saison ziemlich vorbei, viele Bars an den Stränden sind zu.

Great House with very kindly owners

  • 5 of 5

We did like the house very much

Clean, complete, spacious and comfortable.

The house that we had, had a nice view towards the sea.

There were two things we may have missed , namely a pan for roasting meat and a canopy above the frontdoor and the terrace so you can sit outside in the evening and when it rains.

On arrival we were surprised with a can of olive oil and a bottle of wine, which mr. Borghese sr. himself had made.

The house is also very convenient for the various attractions.We visited Alberobello, Matera, Monopoli, Bari and some more villages. We were searching for sandbeaches, but we could not realy find these because all the lido's were closed in this time of the year, so we had to go to the the rocky coast for sunbathing.

In short, we had a wonderful holiday and we certainly recommend this house.

Beautifull and well managed place

  • 4 of 5

We found the place in the country side beautiful and very convenient, close to the main cities in surrounding, close to the see and ideal for a family. Family Borghese is very friendly we have been welcome by the father and the son, with wine and oliv oil and we had the surprise the next day to find fruits at our door. I strongly recommend this place

The best place to stay for a relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was gorgeous! The Borghese family accommodated to both of my dogs (a large and small) and there was plenty of room for all of us - which included 2 adults and 1 child. We were welcomed by Antonio, who was EXTREMELY nice and helpful! There was a bottle of red wine and a canister of olive oil that were made by Antonio himself, and boy were they awesome to have! He later came back with tons of fruit - and so did the next door neighbors! Such awesome and super nice people!

According to the other reviews, a car is recommended, but can be doable without. If you can figure out the bus schedule, one can ride the bus (but dogs aren't allowed on them), rent a scooter, or use a taxi. We used Taxi Fortunato, driven by the wonderful Giovanna Pezzolla. She was amazing - giving us different insights about the towns we were visiting and recommendations on what to do (kinda better than a tour guide/book).

As for the dogs, there was PLENTY of room for them to run around and have fun! The property sat on a large lot with tons of different fruit and olive trees. And the views were absolutely gorgeous! Honestly, the pictures on this website don't do Villa Borghese any justice.

Overall, I highly recommend Villa Borghese for a vacation rental. If and when I come back to Monopoli, I will most def stay here.

A wonderful house in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

From the beginning the communication with our host Graziano was smooth and timely. He took a lot of care to give us all the indications for a safe arrival and once we were there, what a pleasant surprise!!!. The house is HUGE, much bigger than in the description, spotless, with all the confort that one would desire and located in a wonderful place among olives groves . To get there from Monopoli we took a road that is one of the most beautiful in the area. And don Antonio, Graziano''s father overwhelmed us with his generosity (cherries from his garden, Negroamaro and Primitivo wines and the best olive oil that I ever taste!!). Grazie don Antonio per la sua generosita. Grazie Graziano for making us feel rreally at home in your house. We don't know yet when we will be back in Puglia but definitely we will come back to you. We highly recommed this property to everyone who wants to visit this enchanting region.

P.S. A detail that has its importance.The house has in its vicinity (3 km) an ''Alimentari'' store that its open all day (until 10 pm) which I found amazing, considering the 4 hours Italian siesta and a very good and good value trestaurant.
