About the location
Monopoli watches over the Adriatic Sea from its spot on the north-east coast of Puglia. In fact, that’s exactly what the town was designed for – protecting the region’s harbours and farmland from marauding pirates.
Clues to Monopoli’s protective past pop up all over the old town. A walled coastline and castle-topped harbour clutch a labyrinth of narrow streets. This is also where you’ll find a knot of must-sees – the 12th-century Monopoli Cathedral, newly renovated Palmieri Palace and sea-view Carlo V Castle.
The Lungomare Santamaria promenade skirts the town centre, zigzagging past tiny beaches and bastions with wall-to-wall Adriatic views. The skinny streets spread out as they trail out of the city centre. They lead to the surrounding countryside, where traditional masseria (fortified farmhouses) hide away between olive groves and Primitivo vineyards.
Bari, the port capital of Puglia, is within easy reach, too. It’s just an hour’s drive – or half-hour train ride – north.

Located a few minutes drive outside of the old town, the Melograno is a hotel that should be on everyone's bucket list. A magnificent domain with thousand-year-old olive trees, fruit trees and herb gardens, it has numerous bungalow style rooms hidden among the foliage. A massive indoor pool, and an even larger outdoor pool, fitness, steam and sauna based on an old converted Masseria or large farmhouse. You can spend hours just walking around. Breakfast is one of the best that I have ever seen, with lots of fresh, as well as decadent options. It is tempting to just have breakfast and then fast the rest of the day. This was our best hotel, ever, in Italy.

My husband and I stayed four nights at Il Melagrano and loved every moment. The staff are amazing, particularly Mariarita and Ilenia, who insured that we experienced the best of Puglia. Breakfast is delicious with a wide choice. Our room was beautifully appointed and spacious. The grounds are immaculate. We will back!
