Don Ferrante Dimore di Charme, Monopoli

Don Ferrante Relais, Monopoli Don Ferrante Relais, Monopoli

Don Ferrante is boutique accommodation located in the beautiful old town of Monopoli in Puglia. To be precise, within an ancient fortress built on the sea edge and with an enchanting view over the southern Adriatic Sea. Recently opened the whole complex has been restored to its original splendour and travellers looking for an atmospheric taste of the past will marvel at the characteristic Mediterranean style of the building.

Born in 1573, Don Ferrante or Ferdinando Loffredo was a Neapolitan nobleman who enjoyed many titles; First Marquis of Trevico, Lord of San Sossio and Zingoli, Governor General of Bari and Terra d'Otranto, Lord of Lecce and Dean of Sacro Regio Consiglio. When Don Ferrante was the Viceroy of Bari and Terra d'Otranto the city walls and the first part of the castle of Charles V were built in Monopoli. It is here Relais 'Don Ferrante' is located.

To get there you must walk through the typical narrow alleys of the old town which sets up the atmosphere for your stay perfectly. Do not forget to relax in the outdoor hydro massage swimming pool or taste an aperitif on 'Terrazza Don Ferrante” Lounge Bar on the top floor of the hotel admiring the changing colours of the sea at sunset. 


Today's hotel accommodation is elegantly furnished in keeping with the architecture of the building such as handmade white Puglian ceramics laid throughout. Yet modern facilities will make your stay as comfortable as expected from sumptuous bedclothes and bathroom robes to air conditioning, laptop sized room safe, free internet connection via cable and Wi-Fi, PC to TV connection, as well as king size pillow-top beds and even huger bathrooms decked in Apulian earthenware. 


A continental buffet breakfast can be served in the Restaurant Locanda Don Ferrante, or on the terraces overlooking the most amazing views, or also in the room, without any extra charge. It is located in the old 16th century gunpowder store. The menu is made of genuine local dishes  featuring mainly Apulian gastronomic tradition recipes, with a large choice of wines.
