A converted 17th century masseria set in an ancient olive grove in Puglia
White walls traced with climbing vines and bright blossoms. Rustic stone courtyards dotted with antique chairs and tables. Centuries-old olive trees reaching up to a deep blue sky. Everywhere you turn at Il Melograno, there’s another photo opportunity. As well as being impossibly good looking, this boutique hotel immerses you in the heritage and culture of Puglia.
With its outdoor pool and serene spa, Il Melograno is every inch the contemporary Italian retreat. Yet its circling walls hint at its past as a masseria: a fortified farmhouse used to protect Puglia’s rich produce from Saracens. Today, the gates are open and the tables are set with local delicacies – the chefs using many ingredients grown in the hotel’s own kitchen garden. This fusion of past and present continues in the guest rooms, where white walls become a sleek canvas for antique furnishings and original artwork.Read more[SPLIT]Read less
Once you’ve settled in, you’ll find everything you need to switch into holiday mode. Spend days on a lounger beside the garden pool, or swim laps then head for the sauna in the Wellness Centre. There’s more to discover down at the Il Melograno beach club. From day till night, you can hop on a hotel shuttle down to Tamerici Beach Club for cocktails, just-caught fish and magical sea views.
Enjoy your stay!
