Palazzo Bregante

Monopoli, Bari
Bed & Breakfast

An exquisite 17th-century B&B in a sun-blanched fishing town. Sailing, seafood, sandy bays – and a scrumptious breakfast in a frescoed room


5 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


Deep in the winding, cobbled streets of Monopoli, through a painted arch and a door within a door, up marble stairs worn shiny over centuries… and you’re in a beautifully restored palazzo, with chatty staff offering peppery taralli biscuits as they check you in. A frescoed breakfast room straddles the lane below, morning chatter filtering up as you tuck into homemade cakes, local cheeses and fruit from the owners’ trees. Delicious, say guests, and it’s tempting to linger… but the blinding sunlight calls you outside: sailing and sea fishing, hiking trails, vineyards in the Itria Valley, an aperitivo in the square. Then dinner on the waterfront – the day’s catch, hauled up in the tidy port – and a nightcap on the palazzo’s top-floor terrace. Five soothing, dove-white bedrooms have restored furniture, fluffy towels, balconies; the two upper rooms, reached by courtyard stairs lined with orchids and vases, can join to make a family apartment. Between Bari and the Roman road to Brindisi, on a coastline of sandy bays and fishing villages, Monopoli is one of Puglia’s seaside treasures – and the palazzo a gem within it.

We arrived by train and walked through these charming whitewashed streets. A small door opens onto a beautiful entrance hall which is filled with a stairway to heaven! Our room was bright and clean with a beautiful bathroom and comfortable bed. Big windows open onto a quiet street below and, if you reach out, you can almost touch the houses on the other side of the street. This is a stunning B&B with original features and a lovely open dining area, breakfast was delicious. We loved Monopoli, explore and enjoy the harbour, Piazza life and of course fabulous fresh fish.
