In Puglia, Greece and Chamonix
On the edge of the Adriatic Sea is an incredible hotel, a veritable village spreading over 70 hectares, where comfort goes hand in hand with tradition. Try the Borgo Egnazia experience with the family and you’ll understand what it means to have a dream ho
Open all year round, the Borgo Egnazia offers its guests the opportunity to learn something about Apulian culture: its architecture, its cuisine and varied local craftsmanship. An authentic experience among genuinely hospitable people. First opened ten years ago, the hotel was designed by Pino Brescia, an architect from the neighbouring town of Fasano. What he envisaged was more like a village, inspired by local architecture: his buildings resemble masserie, or fortified farms typical of the region in days gone by. On your arrival, you’ll be met by a local advisor (contactable via WhatsApp). Apulian through and through, he’ll answer all your questions and help you organize your activities and excursions: visiting Alberobello and its trulli, the limestone dwellings now on the UNESCO World Heritage list, for example.
Your bambini will adore being entertained and occupied by Carlo Bravi, who runs the children’s club, flanked by his team of 22 assistants: 10 for the Trullalleri Kids’ Club (for children aged 7 months to 7) and 12 for the Tarantari & Marinai Club (for 8-12s). Educational activities vary according to the season, and Carlo really commits himself to keeping the kids happy. While the focus for little ones is on “the five senses”, i.e. discovering Apulian life through fun activities (cookery classes, hands-on creative workshops...), “socializing” is the theme for pre-teens and teens, with, for example, football matches organized against the neighbouring team of youngsters from Fasano.
The hotel beach, Cala Masciola, is a 10-minute ride away in an 18-seat golf cart. Once on the sand, don’t miss the chance to have a swim or take part in the activities suggested by Pippo, the manager of the water sports’ club. The food served on the beach, like that of all the other hotel restaurants, is made from local produce: fresh fish, focaccia, pizza... After indulging in Apulian cuisine, to help with your digestion, why not rent a bicycle, quadricycle or go-kart? Or do a few lengths in one of the hotel pools? This is just a brief glimpse of what the hotel has to offer... For more details, see the non-exhaustive list of activities available at this charming hotel overleaf.
