In the Borgo Egnazia in Apulia
There is no question about it, the region in the south of Italy, located at the heel of the boot so to speak, is still a real insider tip. And this despite the fact that one can now fly directly from Vienna to Brindisi.
Apulia offers romantic towns, secluded bays on dream beaches and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Trulli: old, cone-shaped round houses made of solid natural stone. Adjacent to them lie fields where the world’s most aromatic tomatoes ripen, and groves of olives for Italy’s best olive oil. In contrast to the hectic north of Italy, the clocks tick a little slower here. Relaxation is therefore guaranteed, for example at the 5-star Borgo Egnazia Hotel in Apulia, which won the Condé Nast Spa Traveller Award in 2017.
Here, the holiday dreams of even spoiled people come true: Heavenly sleep in luxurious rooms and villas, local specialities in the various hotel restaurants under the direction of Michelin star chef Andrea Ribaldone, spa relaxation, a nearby golf course – in Borgo Egnazia, gourmets, wellness fans and active holidaymakers all get their money’s worth. Moreover, in the hotel’s own Nowhere Else Academies, guests can learn how to cook original Apulian meals based on Nonna’s recipes in just five days, become sommeliers, mix creative cocktails, take perfect photographs, play golf and obviously learn how to fish. Paradise on earth…
