Villaggio Medievale is located on Murge’s hills, between Monopoli and Alberobello, where the ancient village of S. Michele in Frangesto was set, and nowadays it remains only the small church of S. Michele.
Landscape from the hills offers a panoramic view over secular olive trees, Adriatic Sea and cities of Polignano, Monopoli and Fasano.
Villaggio Medievale is the ideal accommodation for people looking for suggestive historic places, where to spend cultural and relaxing holidays, characterized by Apulian traditions.
Immersed in the wonderful Monopoli countryside, it consists of a langobard tower and some annexed buildings: a small norman house, a complex of trulli, a stable and a common courtyard.
The central Tower, which dates back to Langobard age (VIII-IX), was a watchtower devoted to the control of the territory and the underground prison (today turned into a water tank).
On the window of the first floor are still visible ruins of antique openings, used by soldiers to throw boiling oil and stones when attacked by invaders.
On the ground floor of the tower is the living room with dining area, kitchenette, sofa bed for 2 people and the monumental fireplace.
A steep stairs leads to the first floor, where a master double bedroom and the bath with shower are located.
Next to the tower, you can find a complex of trulli, made up of two big and two small trulli. Here are a living room with sofa bed, dining area with equipped kitchenette and relaxing space with fireplace.
The trulli offer also a comfy double bedroom, a bathroom with shower cubicle and a patio, furnished with outdoor sitting area.
On the other side of the tower, is situated the small house, with a probably 13th century Norman roof.
It has an open space with double bed and a kitchenette, covered by a barrel vault, and a single bed (recommended for children). There is also a tiny bath, obtained from an ancient kiln.
The courtyard, the solarium and the veranda with the pergola are the perfect location where you can enjoy the rural setting, restoring by the pool and spending pleasant and convivial moments, relaxing with your family and friends.
