This B&B made our vacation in Polignano a Mare and Pulgia perfect! The room was clean and comfortable, the bed was wonderful and the shower was amazing! The stuff, we’re extremely nice and helpful, doing everything they could to make us feel at home. If you are looking for a place in this area you must go to Antico Mondo!

Geweldig plekje.


The host was very friendly and helpful and the big terrace was just perfect. All clean and neat.

Great location, good sized room for two and comfy bed. highly recommend


Fantastic location – right in the centre of town but down a quieter lane. Room was perfectly adequate size for two and the bed was comfy (including the pillows – not normal for Italy 🙂 ) Reception and check out were easy and quick. Highly recommend!


Really nice location and beautiful room. The ladies were very nice and flexible! Definitely recommend!


The accommodation was absolutely breathtaking with the best view and most wonderful room including amazing facilities. The terrace of our room was definitely amongst the Top 5 I have ever seen. It was super easy to reach and made our stay at Polignano a Mare 200% nicer. Also the breakfast was one of the best we had during our stay in Puglia. We will surely be back

Would go back tomorrow!!

Great location in the old quarter and minutes walk from bars, restaurants and the local small rocky beach. Our room was on the first floor of this old characterful building with a pretty terrace overlooking the main street. There is another entrance/exit down to the old quarter. Polignare a Mare is the birthplace of Domenico Modugno of ‘Volare’ fame; an Italian classic. There’s a beautiful bronze statue of him near the Centro. Staff were really helpful and suggested good restaurants and a great beach- Cala San Antonio. We were 20 feet from the sea which was warm and shallow for 50 meters out. Again loud music from the neighbouring beach club was a bit off-putting but nothing we could do about it! There’s a bar for gelati or pizza, salad etc – Caffe crema was amazing! The bar opposite Antico Mondo on the town side is a piece of history. Bar Mario Campanella serves fab gelati, breakfast, prosseco, beer, coffee at very reasonable prices. We loved it. The staff arranged for us to park in a local car park as no parking near the property. It was only 5 minutes walk and they arrange a rickshaw type shuttle service for luggage transfers. 

Fantastic B&B


Quirky little B&B in a fantastic location with excellent staff. Breakfast was excellent.

Great location in the historic centre but with all mod-cons!


The accommodation was perfectly located in the historic centre of Polignano and it was easily walk able to the beach and restaurants. We originally booked the cave room (which looked lovely) but were offered a different room with a balcony instead due to a cancellation, which we accepted. Both rooms were very clean and modernly decorated and furnished. The shower was great! We also liked the option to cook/make coffee in the room although we only used the kettle. Staff were very helpful and stayed open past office hours to allow us to check in.

We had a very enjoyable stay in an interesting town.


The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was nice and large. The location is excellent. Breakfast had a lot of choice and was excellent.

Great location and a friendly welcome


Fantastic location just inside the archway entrance to the old town. Lovely friendly staff and were happy to help . Delicious buffet breakfast of local food.

Wonderful, great location!


Great property and wonderful staff. We purchased some delicious local produce from another town prior to our arrival and needed some wine glasses, the team were only too happy to help with that and recommendations for eating etc. We had a room that had three balconies which made our local produce even more delicious as we sipped and ate on the balcony. Great location!
