this is a wonderful historical beach place called Polignano a Mare, about 20 minutes away from where I come from.
Two summers ago I have recommended this place and the lovely b&b owned by my friend Rosa to my friends Martin and Monika coming from Switzerland. The B&B is called Santo Stefano!
The speciality of this bed and breakfast is that the hotel is placed in the historical part of the village, in a little street corner that takes you to one of the most breathtaking balcony overlooking the sea, the perferct spot for a romantic kiss à la "gone with the wind", since it is also very windy up there;-)
This is a convenient holiday, the room cost max 90.00 euro in the high season (August) and the many fish restaurants around it make you don't want to leave the place anymore.
What is important though - you need a car, as it is known that public transportations in south of Italy is a mess!
You can visit many locations around Polignano, like Alberobello with its special stone houses, The caves of Castellana with its impressive stalactites and stalagmites!
Enjoy your holiday - make this year South of Italy your holiday destination!
