Il Melograno History
Some wrought iron tables inspire a pleasant break in the romantic piazzetta of the Melograno masseria II, in the shade of maritime pines and ancient olive trees. Amphoras filled with flowers and spots of climbing bougainvilleas break the total whiteness of the lime that covers the walls of the buildings placed at court with stains of bright colors. The Masseria Il Melograno is a relais that can boast a high quality of services offered but also and above all to the charm that emanate its rooms created in a fortified farm of the sixteenth century, once called Torricella.
The owner, Camillo Guerra, an antique dealer of craft and birthplace of Bari, has been able to transfuse in his work of restructuring and expansion of this monumental complex his professional passion for the ancient: "cianche" and capitals have embellished the structure; antique furniture, chairs and coffers, antique rugs, paintings and elaborate fabrics decorate the hotel's 40 rooms and suites, some of which also have frescoed ceilings. Everything has been created with the addition of a touch of Mediterranean, due to the alchemy of colors that are created also with the external landscape.
Il Melograno has a swimming pool with a green area, two tennis courts, a jogging track and a bike rental for fun excursions in the green surrounding hills.
As for the gastronomic offer, the restaurant is certainly one of the strengths of the structure, with a high level catering and unique dishes belonging to the Apulian tradition and beyond. Wide selection of wines, with the best local and national labels. You can also take part in group or customized courses at the Cooking School, where you can learn the secrets of Mediterranean healthy cooking or take part in guided tastings in the dedicated kitchen.

Reachable by a convenient private shuttle is a wonderful oasis of peace and privacy, lapped by the blue waters of the Adriatic and surrounded by the scents and colors of the Mediterranean.
