Borgo Egnazia is no ordinary borgo, or ‘village’. The entire resort has been built from scratch using time-worn tufo limestone, giving each structure a healthy combination of old-world charm and modern design knowhow. Inside, three-bedroom Villa Bella, decor is a masterclass in neutral tones and natural textures, with ivory-hued ceramics and mink-grey fabrics dressing the whitewashed stone features. The private pool is just a few steps across the sun-soaked patio, but the hotel’s 40-acre grounds have a host of head-turning alternatives, including four large pools, two beaches, a spa and a sea-sprayed golf course.

First Glance

  • There are three levels – two above ground with most of the living and sleeping spaces, as well as a cave-like living area and bedroom in the basement below.
  • The centrepiece of the kitchen is the family table, and there’s also everything you need to cook like a pro.
  • The separate dining room has a whitewashed wooden table and chairs set between ceramic vases and a feature stone fireplace.
  • The ground-floor living area is light-filled and elegantly furnished; classical armchairs and chaises-longues sit alongside glasswork and rustic ornaments. The lower level is as snug as can be, with sink-into sofas in front of the stone-set home theatre system.

Location

  • Borgo Egnazia is in the region of Puglia, on southern Italy’s east coast. In terms of the boot shape of Italy, we’re talking Achilles tendon territory.
  • It’s 53 kilometres from Brindisi airport to Borgo Egnazia; hotel transfers cost €130 for a car (up to three passengers), or €150 for a minivan (up to eight passengers). Alternatively, fly into Bari, which is 60 kilometres away from the hotel.
  • If you’re driving, take the SS16 from Bari or Brindisi. Come off at Savelletri/Stazione di Fasano and follow the yellow signs for Borgo Egnazia and San Domenico golf course.
  • The nearest train station is Fasano, which is five kilometres away. Regular regional trains go to Monopoli, Lecce and Bari; check Trenitalia for details and tickets.
  • Hop on your bikes and explore the hotel by pedal-power, or hire a car to hit up the hilltop villages dotted around this corner of Puglia (the picks of the bunch are Ostuni, Martina Franca and Alberobello).
