Borgo Egnazia Hotel Puglia, Italy
Borgo Egnazia in Italy is far from a resort, it represents rather a new concept of hospitality. Its creation was inspired by the beautiful Apulian land where it was born, a striking architectural force that reveals the magic of Puglia with contemporary and unique European style.
BORGO EGNAZIA HOTEL PUGLIA
The main building, known as La Corte, hosts many of Borgo Egnazia’s services, including Due Camini restaurant and Vair Spa. The décor combines Mediterranean tradition and modern design.
The rooms are divided into four categories:
LA CORTE BELLA
LA CORTE SPLENDIDA
LA CORTE MAGNIFICA
Every room contains either a super king-sized bed or two separate beds, stone bathrooms, and either a balcony or a private garden.
With its central piazza, the Borgo is the heart of the property. Its internal and external architectural design is reminiscent of a traditional Apulian village. The Borgo hosts many of Borgo Egnazia’s services, such as La Frasca restaurant and Mia Cucina Trattoria, as well as the fabulous Trullalleri Kids Club and Fichi d’India Teens Club. The small streets and corners are typical of an Apulian village suspended in timeless tradition reflect simplicity, elegance and the highest attention to detail. During the summer, the property comes to life at the Borgo’s Piazza, which is the site of events, markets, parties and games lasting as late as 11 pm.
Equipped with every possible comfort, the Villas are all furnished in a style that is more classic yet equally refined. The villas are the perfect choice for enjoying a totally relaxing holiday immersed in a quiet Mediterranean setting, only steps away from the livelier areas of the Borgo and La Corte.
The Villas are 3-story townhouses, each equipped with:
3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, a living area, a basement, a scenic terrace, a garden, a patio and a private swimming pool.
Borgo Egnazia is located in the heart of Apulia, immersed among the ancient olive groves of the Itria valley and only steps away from the crystal blue Adriatic sea of Savelletri. The gastronomical options in this particular region of Apulia are especially rich and varied: the fruit/vegetable and bovine selection from the vast and verdant farmland, together with the fish of the day, available from the nearby port of Savelletri, complete the Mediterranean diet typical of this region.
Due Camini is the most sophisticated gourmet restaurant at Borgo Egnazia. The atmosphere is elegant and refined: connoisseurs can experience high cuisine carefully prepared with the finest Apulian ingredients.
A different type of spa, only at Borgo Egnazia.
The team of spa specialists at Borgo Egnazia created an amazing and astonishing spa. Every detail and treatment are infused with the soul of southern Italy, and particularly that of Apulia. All products (including food items and objects), music and personnel are strictly ‘Made in Italy’. Apulia is where your trip begins, but it’s also the perfect destination: it is an authentic land with ancient popular traditions, healthy natural therapies and a hospitable people with an unparalleled joie de vivre.
San Domenico Golf Club is located between the ancient city of Egnathia (5thC B.C.) and the Savelletri marina. The course is flanked by the rocky lining of the Adriatic Sea to the east and the vegetable fields and olive groves to the west.
Created as a project of the European Golf Design of London (the PGA’s design company headed by Jeremy Slessor and signed by architect Andy Haggar), San Domenico Golf Club was created following the USGA’s highest standards.
Even though the work of moving the earth and creating the necessary undulations was substantial and appropriate, its impact did not deform the landscape; rather, it established a way of harmoniously bringing nature and man together. Among the various turf options, Bermuda grass was used for the fairway, the even festuca was the choice for the roughs, and the classic pencross was selected for the greens, which stands out for its adaptability and resistance. The greens are extensive and even though they do not contain misleading slopes, they are not at all easy to tame.
San Domenico is a classic links course, characterized by the typical Mediterranean vegetation. Next to the low bushes of thyme, rosemary, sage and mint, sprout the ancient and uniquely beautiful olive trees, becoming the field’s emblem. The course’s backdrop is the sea, visible from all angles, while the scenery’s main player is the wind, blowing almost constantly all year long.
