La Dimora dell'Abate used to be an historical dovecote belonging to the Benedictine compound of San Vito Abbey.

La Dimora hosting the Guest House rose up in a suburban area, 3 km far from Polignano a Mare.

The house was built on the perimetral walls of the Abbey on the attic floor. What will strike you while stepping along the external corridor surrounding the Abbey, are the perspectives that lose any convention to make room for the infinite of history that comes into view.

Thick walls, high ceilings and wide views let dazzling spurts of light colour the shadows of your holidays. Through the large terraces you can penetrate the landscape, inebriated with scents, lights and shapes. The sky takes a multitude of colours, mirroring in the universal sea. You are in the heart of La Dimora dell'Abate.

Valeria and Marco, Annamaria and Pino are the friendly and thoughtful hosts who will soon make you feel at home.

The Puglia/Molise region

La Dimora dell'Abate is the unique Guest House inside Saint Vito's Abbey compound. The compound used to be a Benedictine convent and the flats along the stone corridor that take to La Dimora, are former monks' cells. La Dimora dell'Abate is the largest house inside the former convent and its position overlooks the whole compound. It has three large terraces with astonishing views on the sea and the surrounding countryside. Saint Vito's Abbey is the only existing Medieval Abbey on the sea. It's close to beautiful stone and sandy beaches. Here, in any time of the year, you can enjoy all the beauties of holidays in a magic place detouched from noisy crowds and traffic. Yet it is only 3 km far from the worldwide known Polignano a Mare, so you will never feel cut out from the world.

Polignano a Mare

San Vito is in the district of Bari, just before Polignano a Mare. You'll be in the blue heart of Puglia. Marco and I will be ready to take you to the most beautiful places of our region, if you wish. We can show you the beautiful harbours of Monopoli where fishermen will give you the chance to sail through the clearest water of Adriatic sea. We can take you along the narrow streets of the unforgettable villages of Murgia with the famous trulli sourrounded with centuries-old olive trees. We can visit the white stone houses of Ostuni and Locorotondo tasting the local food offered by the friendly inhabitants. And together we can plan tens of original trips to all the other jewels of this land that will leave an unforgettable mark in your heart.

"The perfect place to take a break!""

"La Dimora dell'Abate" is a calm place to spend time peacefully in contact with nature. In the house there are 8 beds in 4 rooms and there is a kitchen where the hosts provide the need… More

Having you both as our guests was a pleasure! Thankyou for what you write about us. Only we want to point out that, although there is a kitchen, the guest house is not meant to cook meals. We have a convention with the restaurant 'La Locanda dei Benedettini' for that purpose.
Looking forward to seeing you again!
