About the location
Polignano a Mare is a postcard town settled on Puglia’s Adriatic coast. Its old town clusters on a clifftop, with the newer part of town unfolding behind. The limestone cliffs on this part of the coast are honeycombed with caves. You can swim to some of them straight from the white-pebble beach of Cala Porto; to see those further away, hire a kayak to paddle along the coast.
The old town’s maze of narrow streets are edged with whitewashed houses. Radiating out from the café-lined Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II, they twist and turn before emerging out onto panoramic terraces overlooking the coast (perfect spots for watching the cliff divers jumping and somersaulting into the clear waters).
Polignano a Mare puts you in a great position for exploring more of Puglia. Historic Monopoli is only 10 minutes along the coast, the Castellana Caves are 20 minutes’ drive away, and Alberobello’s iconic trulli can be reached in half an hour.
The hotel is 1 hour 15 minutes from Bari airport and 1 hour from Brindisi airport. We recommend hiring a car in your destination. Simply call us once you’ve completed your booking and we will talk you through the options.

“ Overpriced and bad service

Overpriced, bad service, a "4-stars" hotel which serves you rotten orange juice and expired/frozen fruits. Decent room despite the toilet door not closing. The swimming pool is nice but that's pretty...

An advice, you can find better elsewhere.
