Steeped in romance and fond tradition, the exquisite Borgo Egnazia, situated in Savelletri di Fasano, Puglia, is a traditional interpretation of a typical Apulian village. Timelessly elegant, the hotel’s architecture and design is synonymous with that of local villages; simple and rural. Set amongst olive trees that are so characteristic of the region and mere steps from the Adriatic Sea, Borgo Egnazia exudes authenticity and loveliness, with soothing harmonious tones in the decor, lots of natural light and artwork based on traditional symbols originally painted on trulli roofs. La Corte houses four different room types; La Corte Bella, La Corte Splendida, La Corte Magnifica and La Egnazia. Il Borgo, ‘the village’, has a real homely feel, featuring a family pool, a piazza and rows of duplex townhouses. For an even more sumptuous stay, opt for one of the twenty-nine villas, the most sophisticated abodes in the hotel’s inventory.
Regionally-inspired cuisine is at the forefront of the dining philosophy here. Visit the rustic La Frasca for the hotel’s take on the Apulian farming experience. Gourmet experiences at Due Camini are accented with features like white limestone, soft ambient lighting and glass bottles suspended from the ceiling. Trattoria Mia Cucina is a friendly space for casual fare like wood-fired pizzas cooked in a traditional wood oven. Chefs craft infusions of Mediterranean and Apulian products at Il Cortile. For an al fresco dining experience, Pescheria Da Vito, located on the beach, offers grilled fresh fish, salads and pasta.
The highly experiential and spiritual Vair Spa offers balancing treatments with guidance from a trusted shaman and several experts qualified in naturopathy, psychosomatic medicines, physiotherapy and Wellness as a pillar of health. Drawing inspiration from ancestral traditions, this mellow and calming refuge, translated into ‘true’ from the Apulian word ‘vair’, aims to deliver absolute equilibrium to all guests that enter.
