Monopoly is a city set inside an old Fortress beside the sea . There are still the old cannons set on the ramparts. La Porta Vecchia is a lovely old building which as been done up to an excellent standard. The breakfast was very good and loads to pick from. On a night you could have a great fish dish or pitsa at the local taverna's.

"Great location, fabulous accommodation and food!"
Built into the old town / port wall the hotel was stunning. Total relaxation but with enough local life to provide a sense of being somewhere a bit different. The restaurant provided fantastic food and service and the local wines were amazing. There was plenty to do in Monopoli for the week we were there. We negociated a private tour of the local area on our last full day. A small hotel - only ten (or so) rooms - but it didn't really feel that you were in a 'normal' hotel. I heartily recommend it.

Peace and tranquility abound in this hotel situated on a masseria which still produces its own olive oil. The grounds are exceptionally large and contain a wonderful pool and two tennis courts. Breakfast is served on the terrace next to the pool and is a generous feast of fresh fruit, ham, cheese and home made pastries. Staff are professional and friendly. The hotel has its own beach a few miles away. This is well equipped with loungers and umbrellas but is rather rocky and windswept.
There are several well furnished lounges and a large courtyard to enjoy an aperitif in the evening. The nearby town of Monopoli has a lovely old town and lots of restaurants and the all important gelateria. The hotel has plans to build a conference centre and host events such as weddings, hope it doesn't lose its charm in the process.
