Masseria Il Melograno and boutique hotel La Peschiera are scheduled to open on 6 April, ready to welcome guests for the Easter and Easter Monday weekend on 9 and 10 April .“We are ready for a new season marked by important programming, aimed at enhancing the value of our incredible territory ,”explains Talea Collection General Manager Andrea Sabato, ” in an increasingly dynamic and captivating context. We will guide our Italian and international guests, with new creativity, to the discovery of authenticity and our traditions.”
Masseria Il Melograno
With the arrival of spring, Masseria Il Melograno, a typical example of an authentic 17th-century Apulian fortified farmhouse, is the perfect place to experience the Apulian countryside in all its splendour and beauty, among the olive trees as far as the eye can see, the orange grove near the swimming pool, the carob trees and the bungavillea that highlights the white lime walls.
There is also a permanent Cooking Lab from April to September at Masseria Il Melograno, where you can learn the secrets of traditional Apulian dishes, such as how to make the perfect focaccia. The Mùmmulo restaurant offers a real experience of traditional Apulian cuisine with typical recipes, reinterpreted by Chef Cosimo Amico, Executive Chef at Il Melograno . Collaborations with excellent Apulian wineries are underway.
The Petramare Physionatura Wellness Centre at Masseria Il Melograno enhances the link with the territory, thanks to the collaboration with the Apulian brand Physionatura, with products linked to nature and Apulia, used in seasonal treatments.
The Melograno’s private beach is also impressive, connected by a daily shuttle service: the Lido Le Tamerici, a real jewel along the coast of Monopoli in the Capitolo resort, with its tamarisk trees that create natural shade.
Boutique hotel La Peschiera
The boutique hotel La Peschiera is a unique property that stands out and captivates guests with its location “pied dans l’eau“. A unique place, chosen as one of the locations for the second season of the TV drama “Le Indagini di Lolita Lobosco” starring Luisa Ranieri .
The boutique hotel La Peschiera confirms itself as the ideal place for a romantic and exclusive stay: perfect for boarding a gozzo – a typical fishermen’s boat – directly from the hotel room, to enjoy the sunset over the sea, on an ad hoc organised tour along the coast.
With its panoramic terrace, the Saleblu restaurant is the jewel in the crown of theLa Peschieraboutique hotel. Headed since 2021 by the young Apulian Executive Chef Vincenzo Montanaro, today Saleblu’s cuisine aims to research and give new light to raw materials, transforming them with contemporary techniques. Since 2022, the SaleBlu restaurant has been Maison Valentin Leflaive, a French brand of great prestige in the world of champagne.
In the foreground for the 2023 season are the initiatives organised by the DMC Talea Collection, which proposes unique experiences with workshops – among many others – to discover the secrets of local craftsmanship, or to learn about the different types of table grapes found in Puglia. These are true sensory itineraries: the UVA Tasting, the path of the oleologist, and Apulian ceramics courses. All designed to deseasonalise and meet the needs of guests who visit Apulia all year round from all over the world.
Among the absolute novelties from spring, Talea Collection offers its guests a unique experience of immersion in nature with Natura & Olive Oil Tree Bathing, an ad hoc four-night programme. A nature and wellness retreat to encourage self-recovery, practising nature and olive tree bathing to promote anti-stress relaxation, psycho-physical regeneration, and restoration of the biorhythm, in collaboration with coach Giulia Terlicher, a professional guide of immersive techniques , and local guide Cesare Muciaccia, former competitive tennis player, trainer and Pilates trainer. The programme ranges from relaxing walks to discover the most secret coves of the Monopoli coastline, to an embrace with nature: Nature & Olive Oil Tree Bathing among the olive trees, undisputed kings of the Apulian countryside. Plus a series of wellness treatments at the Petramare Physionatura Wellness Centre at Masseria Il Melograno.
With the DMC Talea Collection, wine tours to Apulia’s most interesting wineries have been developed and tours with extensions to other high-profile properties have also been created.
Cala Ponte Hotel
The Cala Ponte Hotel, a four-star hotel on the outskirts of Polignano, is once again confirmed for the 2023 season as the ideal base for a luxury catamaran trip: perfect for those who love the sea and sport. Unique boat itineraries in which to discover the beauty of the caves: from the Grotta delle Rondinelle to the Caverna dei Colombi, for those who love a true dive in the bluest sea.
For those who love absolute privacy: Talea Trulli e Dimore properties include masserie, trulli, lamie and prestigious villas, for every need. From the sea-view trullo to the authentic masseria immersed in the countryside. Talea Trulli e Dimore properties are distinguished by 24-hour concierge assistance and guaranteed exclusive access to all the services of the Talea group, including the Le Tamerici Beach Club.
