Sky TV channels, a DVD player and 3D glasses are included, along with a wii games console. Two of the bedrooms are adult-oriented and the third is great for kids.

Why Kids Love it

Kids of all ages love this space. With limited items for babies and some minor safety issues, we would recommend it for those over 5 ideally. There is a private pool and for babies and toddlers there is a big sunken bath for bath time. Older kids and teens can use the games console and SKY TV and DVD player, and there are 3D glasses on hand also. Older teens are also welcome to use the fitness equipment. Nearby child-friendly attractions include beaches a short drive away and a play park in Monopoli itself.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 3 days. The property is set over 3 levels and there are no stair gates, although they may be provided on request. Note that the pool is ungated and is set only a little way from the house - young children should be supervised at all times. There is also a roof terrace at the property and children need to be supervised on it as the wall height is low. The property has secure entrance gates and parking for 2-3 cars..

About the Location

The residence is in the town of Monopoli, around 30-40 minutes south of Bari on the coast of central Puglia. The nearest beaches are 2.5km from the property. The nearest shops and restaurants are just 2.5 kilometres away. The food in this region is superb. Monopoli itself has street markets, a cathedral, a castle and plenty of rustic and historic charm. The port and fortified seafront walls are fun to visit. The owners can organise bike hire on request. Please ask for more details.

Accommodation Details

This 3-bedroom property includes a contemporary living area with bar and a bathroom with shower on the ground floor. The next floor up has an open plan kitchen and dining area plus a WC. Doors lead from the dining area to a large terrace with sea views and views over the pool. A second terrace overlooks a private internal courtyard. Bedrooms are all on the lower ground level - 2 double and 1 twin - and there is a bathroom with a sunken Jacuzzi. The inner courtyard has an outdoor gym with exercise bike and weights machine. There is also a utility area with washing machine and a wine cellar on this floor. Outdoor space includes gardens, a saltwater pool, barbecue and covered terrace.

Style Notes

Contemporary Italy. With sleek lines and elegant spaces, this is a contemporary property with plenty of extras to make a vacation stay unique. Bedrooms have their own character and everything from the staircase, with exposed stone walls contrasting with sleek wooden stair treads, to the bar, pool and gym areas have been given a lot of thought. The salt water swimming pool has a diving board at one end and hot hydrojets and seating at the other, suiting those who want to swim and those who prefer to relax. The proximity to the coast does also ensure that the villa gets the refreshing sea breezes. We love the covered terrace for easy dining at home, the modern kitchen with all appliances and the great location for a family stay in Puglia.

I am a Mum of two children. My eldest - Ben - is 13 years old and my youngest - Lucy - is ten. As a family, we holiday in Italy 2-3 times a year and love the laid back, relaxed atmosphere that Italy offers us. Italians respect traditional family values and adore children as much as they love their food, which in our eyes makes it the perfect family holiday destination! When they were little we liked to holiday in the Italian Lakes in particular. Our children are now old enough to enjoy the many water sports that the area offers, but we were holidaying in the area since they were only just crawling and found that the area offered plenty for them to enjoy whatever their age. We can already see how much it will offer them as teenagers too! We now like to explore other areas of Italy too, our favourites being Puglia, Tuscany and Umbria as well as the Lakes region. I hope that I can help other families to find their perfect holiday in Italy.

Puglia, Italy

Meadows, beaches and sun-ripened figs

It’s no surprise that Puglia is beloved by Italian tourists: with pristine sandy beaches, hilltop towns filled with Baroque churches and meadows of wildflowers and olive groves, it’s a sensational vacation spot. Down on the heel of Italy, it’s known for its ‘peasant food’ - simple dishes bursting with the sun-ripened flavors of local figs, olive oil, tomatoes and peppers. Entertain the kids with gelato and beaches, then explore some of the area’s special treats, including the limestone caves of the Grotte di Castellano and the eerie UNESCO-listed Castel del Monte. The town of Alberobello is also well worth a visit for trullo-spotting - the town has over 1,500 of the region’s classic cylindrical houses that you can't see anywhere else in Italy.
