Nestled between the ruins of the ancient Roman settlement after which it was named, Borgo Egnazia is in Puglia near the coastal town of Savelletri. It’s easily the best hotel in the area. The closest airport is Bari or Salento, which is ideal for private jetters.
The 155 stays here are split between the castle-like La Corte and the Borgo, and offer balconies, courtyard gardens or terraces with calming resort and sea views. There are also 28 villas, featuring multirooms, a sitting room, roof-terrace and their own kitchenettes.
Who is it for
This place is perfect for families, who will find bountiful activities for the little ones and can rent a whole stone cottage. Some have private pools, if you’re willing to splurge. And yet, the resort is also incredibly romantic, with La Corte being great for couples.
