Don Ferrante, or Ferdinando Loffredo, was a Neapolitan nobleman who enjoyed many titles; First Marquis of Trevico, Lord of San Sossio and Zingoli, Governor General of Bari and Otranto, Lord of Lecce and Dean of the Sacro Regio Consiglio.
When Don Ferrante became the Viceroy of Bari and Otranto new defensive city walls had just been built in Monopoli as well as parts of the castle, today known as Charles V Castle.
A little fortress was also built close on the southern side of the walls: this is the building where Don Ferrante lies today.


 


Description of the Hotel location


An ancient fortress on the reef, close to the sea,  in an enchanting atmosphere.


Located in the old town of Monopoli , the charming Don Ferrante hotel  boasts views of the Mediterranean Sea. The hotel  lies on top of a 15 km coastline of jagged rock with many coves and sandy beaches to enjoy and explore. Ideally located between Bari and Brindisi airports, both about 60 km away, Don Ferrante is easily reachable and visiting the main sights of Apulia is simple as Monopoli is centrally located.


Don Ferrante welcomes you in 10 elegantly furbished rooms that  have been restored to their original glory, with stone vaulted ceilings and Mediterranean characteristics. Rooms are elegant and decorated in light cream colours which complement the natural stone which has been uncovered in the rooms. Equipped  with numerous comforts, like flat-screen satellite TV, free access to the internet, bedding of the highest quality, bathrobes and slippers, they go from the smallest  Junior room, to Superior and Deluxe.


Our Master Suite “Don Ferrante”, with the view on the sea, will give you a breathtaking sight, from sunrise to sunset. The bedroom, with the vaults in travertine, is elegantly furnished in all its details, from the Apulian white ceramics to the comfortable king size bed. The living room is welcoming with its conversation area and the presence of a fireplace that completes the dreamy atmosphere of this suite.
