The apartment “Rosmarino” is one of two apartments in a holiday house near Capitolo, which is a small village at the outskirts of Monopoli. The house is a quite new building, everything is of very good quality and very clean. It also is well furnished and decorated, it is also very well equipped with everything you need in the kitchen and in the bathroom. The main room is an extremely large space comprising kitchen and livingroom, the ceilings are so high you think you are in a cathedral! The place is in the country side but close to the beach (5 minutes by car), we were there in July so it was too hot to walk or ride a bicycle, but you can do it definitely in less hot months. At the seaside there are many different Lidos to choose from, we really liked “Lido Bambu” because it is cool and relaxed (however expensive in high season, 40 Euros for 2 persons). For dinner there is one very nice restaurant “Feliciano” in walking distance, and there are some masserie where you can get delicous food. You can also drive to other villages like Monopoli or Savelletri in about 10 minutes. Gianni is a very nice person a perfect host, he gave us a lot of suggestions where to eat or where to go, he was always available and around when we had a question.
So I can recommend “Rosmarino” very much, there are only two things why I am not giving five points: the house is located in an area that is still in development and a couple of houses were still under construction, so it did not feel like a feel like a “grown-in” place yet, but of course this is only a matter of time. You also should be aware that the apartment is built Puglian style beneath ground level which makes it less hot (we actually did not need air conditioning and were fine with opening windows). The terrace and little garden around the apartment is very nice and it is not dark in the apartment, but it is surrounded by walls and it feels a little like going down to a basement.
