Monopoli, Province of Bari, Puglia
**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.

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.

My wife and I began our Italian honeymoon at Bell'Aria. As the name suggests, the place sings its beauty and charm. Sequestered in a beautiful part of the old port of Monopoli, Italy, it immediately evokes la dolce vita. I particularly loved walking the labyrinthine streets at night--very mysterious. Gorgeous nearby beaches make for a dreamy get away. The food...

This is a great place to unwind and enjoy a lovely town right in the midst of real Italian life and culture. The rooms seem rather small but the stone steps and beautiful high arched ceilings make you feel as if you are staying in a miniature medieval castle. Monopoli has lots to offer like one of our favorite restaurants...
