Palazzo Bregante

Superbly nestled in Monopoli’s old city, Palazzo Bregante is an exclusive retreat that celebrates its noble past with a sophisticated eye toward the future. Dating back to 1860 and steeped in history, the building was once the private residence of Giuseppe Bregante, director of the Royal Customs Office of Monopoli, as well as the birthplace of renowned local poet, Carolina Bregante.Today, a luxury bed and breakfast, the property welcomes visitors from across the world to experience an inviting, familial stay in the heart of Monopoli’s historic quarter, while enjoying close proximity to the sea.

Palazzo Bregante has been lovingly restored to retain the most splendid details of its antique pedigree while offering guests an open and airy sanctuary of comfort. Original architectural details and period furnishings are blended with contemporary designer touches to create an overall elegant stay. Boutique in size, each of the hotel’s exclusive five guest rooms are thoughtfully named after family members, such as Aunt Cetta (Zia Cetta) and Zia Peppa. Each guest room is decorated in a soothing neutral color palette and features high wooden ceilings, period antiques and a private balcony. All rooms are well appointed with modern conveniences, such as LED televisions, WiFi, air conditioning and heating, safe, minibar, courtesy kit, and lovely bathroom. The palazzo’s charming common spaces include the “salotto” living room where guests can enjoy a breakfast of seasonal fruit, yogurt, freshly baked pastries and a menu of hot dishes, as well as a reading room and an outdoor terrace.
