A stone-carved haven amongst Puglia’s olive groves, Borgo Egnazia celebrates its glorious natural surroundings with sprinklings of wild flowers, fragrant lemons, and clusters of barley against cool, locally sourced stone. Wander the sun drenched grounds amidst the fragrance of fresh jasmine and try your hand at recreating delectable local dishes at the hotel’s very own cookery school. With a variety of sensational restaurants for you to choose from, each serving up the finest fresh local produce, Borgo Egnazia lives and breathes all that is dolce in life; it is rustic refinement incarnate.
Puglia, the heel of Italy’s oh so stylish boot, has a wonderfully unique allure that can only come from its rural landscape and patchwork past of Norman, Spanish, Greek and Byzantine influences. Borgo Egnazia is nestled just outside the town of Fasano, sandwiched between the hills and the Adriatic Sea, and is within easy reach of the white-sand beaches that line the quiet coastline. With the 18-hole, championship San Domenico Golf Course just next door, it’s perfectly positioned for those looking to stretch their legs and sink a few putts in the sun.
Spaciously laid out across three different areas, you can choose from the luxurious rooms of ‘La Corte’ (the main building of the hotel), the rustic suites and townhouses of the village-like ‘Borgo’, or one of the magnificent villas that line the grounds. Stone-carved bathrooms and barely-there hues reflect the warm welcome typical of Puglian life, yet all remain beautifully elegant and equipped with every comfort you’d expect from a Black Tomato bolthole.
Why we like it
Perfect for all the family, the hotel’s three swimming pools, tennis courts, reading rooms, and beach club ensure that you’re never short of choice for how to spend your afternoons. With service that leaves nothing unthought-of (there’s even a specialist childcare team on hand to keep the kids occupied) feel free to slink off to the spa, tee off at the San Domenico Golf Course or simply lose yourself in the shade of the olive trees.
