An authentic taste of Puglia’s rich land and the delicious pleasures of the Adriatic Sea.

Il Melograno is renowned throughout Italy as the first masseria to open its doors to guests and reveal 400 years of history. This country estate outside Monopoli is a place of simple beauty, echoing with past lives of noblemen and farmworkers.



Welcome to the private beach club for guests of Il Melograno Hotel, named for the parasol boughs of the Tamerici trees that provide shade for our guests relaxing by the blue Apulian Adriatic. This private sandy shore secludes guests from any sense of the high season with all the pleasures of summer sunshine.

A complimentary shuttle brings guests from Il Melograno to the Tamerici Beach Club, while guests of sister hotel La Peschiera can simply walk next door.

Guests arrive at the cocktail bar, there’s a cascade of white dining terraces and every facility is provided for a comfortable day on the beach.



Two ancient olive trees wide in girth, stand stately in the dining room, a symbol of the local organic produce that inspires our kitchens, the essence of Mùmmulo. ‘If it’s not in season, it is not on the menu’, says Chef Vito.


Inspired by the traditions of holistic wellbeing we invite guests to take time to relax entirely, slowing to the rhythm of nature surrounding our estate.

Before your chosen spa treatment visit our gym, swim in our large indoor pool and dry off in the sun, this is our own Roman ‘palaestra’. Then the therapeutic journey begins as you travel through a candlelit spa to soothe your body in the sauna.
