Located directly on the Adriatic Sea is the tranquil town of Monopoli, about 45 minutes’ drive from your holiday home. Heinrich VI loved its picturesque scenery, and built himself a stately castle here overlooking the water.

This small Italian town has a special charm, characterised by small ristorantes and bars, narrow streets with clothes lines reaching from one side to the other, and a romantic harbour. If you want to get to know the real heart of Italy, Monopoli is the place for you.

Not far from Monopoli (around 30 minutes’ drive) you will find the Castellana caves. Known to humans since ancient times, they are associated with legends of magic and demons. Sixty metres underground you will find a unique world of stalactites, stalagmites, fossils, narrow gorges and caves.

A special experience for old and young alike!
