Bell’Aria, that means “Beautiful Air”, describing the winds coming across the Adriatic Sea, is also the name of a 4 storey townhome in the Old Historic Centre of Monopoli in Puglia. It is located only 40 metres away from the sea and from the town’s first iconic beach area Cala Porta Vecchia, with giant stones (referred to as “calette”, perfect for spreading a towel and reading a book or basking in the sun underneath the old cannons of the historic medieval protective wall of the city). Close to the Historic Cathedral which dates from 1117, and to the Purgatorio Church, thank to the narrow street where it arises, it offers a much quieter experience than other homes in the Historic center.
Bell’Aria has been recently fully renovated in the antique Pugliese style, and modernized. The ceiling on each floor is dome –shaped, showing the exposed native pink and tan stones of the area. It is also possible to find an occasional sea shell fossil in the ceiling stones! The hand-painted tiles on the floor are also historic and very unique. Each floor is equipped with Air Conditioning and Heating.
The ground floor welcomes the fully equipped kitchen and the bathroom with shower.
Walking up the first set of stone stairs, covered with local marble, the second floor hosts a lovely general room with a honeycomb exposed stone ceiling and a double sofa bed. A small balcony with the traditional clothes lines completes the room.
The next set of natural stone stairs lead to the third floor with a Master Bedroom with double bed in the same, historic honeycomb exposed stone ceiling.
Going up, the last floor is the terrace, equipped with two tables and chairs for 4-6, a big tarp cover and an iron bench. The surrounding houses give walled privacy on this terrace. Sipping wine, eating light fare and enjoying the flight of the birds along the horizon, it is a must!

We enjoyed our stay very much in Bell'Aria but the depth and height of the stairs are not suitable for very young or mature people,

Joli appartement restauré dans le centre historique d'Monopoli. À 2 pas de tout pour se restaurer que ce soit petits restaurants typiques ou même magasin d'alimentation où il y a tout ce qu'il faut y compris le sourire des propriétaires avec toujours un petit mot gentil. Ne pas oublier le panier garni de très bonnes choses que HelloApulia met à ma disposition le jour de mon arrivée. Je reviens à Monopoli l'année prochaine et j'espère retourner dans ce petit nid.

HelloApulia is a wonderful host who does everything possible to make sure the guests have the best experience possible - the apartment Bell'Aria is beautifully decorated, spotless and kitted out with every convenience we could have wished for. The traditional stone structure keeps it pleasantly cool indoors, while the lovely little terrace provides some welcome outside space to chill as well. HelloApulia gave us some great tips, including for the best pizza and the best gelato we had ever tasted! Located right in the heart of the old town, the apartment is literally five minutes' walk from many top rated restaurants (the seafood dishes are mouthwateringly delicious and excellent value), friendly bars as well as from the main visitor attractions such as the beautiful old harbour, the castle and the lovely town beach (which is as good as any of the local beaches along the coast). So magical to see the local kids alongside visitors enjoying a late night paddle or swim! We loved the vibrant, happy and welcoming ambience of Monopoli, especially strolling around of an evening. We were lucky to be there during an art festival which demonstrated local pride in their town. We would definitely love to return to Monopoli and to stay at Bell'Aria again!

Abbiamo trascorso una settimana a Monopoli, di una bellezza che vi resterà nel cuore, insieme a Bell'Aria! Si trova nel cuore del centro storico, che è pieno di vicoletti mozzafiato. Siamo sempre andati al mare e usciti la sera a piedi perchè è tutto davvero vicinissimo. La casa è molto pulita e accogliente. Si sviluppa su 3 livelli tutti molto caratteristici. E poi c'è il terrazzo con tavolo e sedie che permette di rilassarsi e godersi qualche aperitivo serale al tramonto. La casa è fornita di tutto! ma proprio tutto! dalle stoviglie della cucina, agli asciugamani, asciugacapelli, connessione wi fi etc. Il personale di HelloApulia è stato anche molto gentile e professionale, segnalandoci con un welcome book vari punti di ristoro, le migliori spiagge ed alcuni dei mercati settimanali della zona. Stra-consigliato! Prezzo ottimo. Tutti disponibili per qualsiasi cosa! Prenotare questa struttura ti fa andare sul sicuro! Complimenti! Spero di poterci ritornare!
