Monopoli

THE CITY OF ONE HUNDRED CONTRADE DISTRICTS: A UNIQUE PLACE

Lying on the coastline of the Adriatic Sea, set in the very heart of Apulia, Monopoli is literally a unique city (as its name is made up of the two Greek words monos (only, single, unique) and polis (city)). Unique for the beauty of its mediaeval settlement, for its old small port, that stands as a guardian of the typical blue and red gozzi (local fishing boats), for the Aragonese castle, and for the boundary walls that have stubbornly continued for centuries to protect it from any threat that may possibly come from the sea.

Unique for the great variety of its contrade (localities or hamlets), one hundred in all, which give life to the surrounding countryside, including fortified farms, churches, villas, olive groves and almond groves. Precisely this peculiarity gave rise to the peculiar names that have been given to the rooms, with the purpose of confirming the close link with our land.

Le Contrade

APULIAN RESIDENCES

Le Contrade was born from the desire to welcome while respecting the tradition of our city. We like to tell this idea in every detail, starting from our logo, full of references to graphic signs related to the cultures that contributed to shaping the unique identity of Monopoli.

Our facility brings to life the typical houses of the ancient burg, usually structured on three floors, which have, however, been reinterpreted in a modern way. This is the result of an intervention put in place to recover the ancient urban centre, which has come back to life in another form abreast with the times.

The rooms, located in different buildings, yet close to each other, allow you to fully experience a holiday in Monopoli, getting in touch with the habits of the locals and the traditions of our territory.

Hospitality is sharing

MIRANGELA AND THE STRENGTH OF THE ORIGINS

The idea of hospitality as sharing of the family context comes from afar. Often, during the summer holidays, we used to have relatives from outside staying with us in grandma’s house. The preparation of homemade pasta, the inebriating scent of oil and freshly made tomato sauce united us in a common experience that we still remember dearly today. Le Contrade was born precisely from that house and from that spirit.
