Why does it deserve a mention?
It is a perfect peaceful oasis, strategic home base to explore the surroundings: Ostuni, Cisterino, Alberobello, Monopoli, Selva di Fasano, Polignano a mare, and of course, Bari. Villa Cenci disposes of just 20 rooms, some of which located in the Trulli (traditional white stone dwellings, characterized by the typical conical roof). The interior furnishings are produced by local artisans according to the traditional style, but they dispose of all modern comforts such as air conditioning and LCD TV; the rooms are a pleasant mix between ancient and past.
