Villa Carenza is a typical farmhouse in Puglia, which was built in the late 1800's. Here you will find an art-nouveau style combined with neoclassical features.
Since public transport options are not great here, it is best to arrive by car to allow you more freedom. It is approx. 4 km to the nearest beach outside Monopoli and the same distance to the nearest restaurant and shopping facilities. The cosy town centre of Monopoli is approx. 7 km drive away.

In the large park of 8 hectares, there is a nice pool of 24 x 9 metres and three separate houses and two family houses. There is also a playground under the trees where children can run and play in the shade of the day's warmest hours.
During some weekends in spring and autumn, ceremonies and family gatherings are sometimes held here, which means that you do not have access to the pool on those days. However, there is plenty of room for you to sit outside in areas away from the celebrations. If you book during a period when there is an event, you will be informed of this.

Living in this huge house (Villa Padronale) in the beautiful garden was a great experience. The charming villa has been in the owner's family for a hundred years. A well equipped kitchen, all the house nice and clean, the pool, close to Monopoli, Polignano a Mare and the beaches it was a great stay. We felt very welcomed by Michele and Cinzia.
The beds were a bit hard, a soft mattress pad on top would be great. Also some fans could be good in warm nights.
We loved this place and will recommend it to our friends.
