A honeymoon in Puglia is characterised by a few things: incredible, locally-sourced food, discovering towns and villages that time (thankfully) forgot, and long afternoons of sunbathing, sightseeing and enjoying each other’s company. No frills, no tourists, just love.
‘Secluded Apulian Retreat, Between Mountain and Sea’
Basing its appearance on a traditional Apulian village, Borgo Egnazia is set within 20 hectares in the south of Italy. The hotel complex sits between the ancient Greco-Roman ruins of Egnazia and the 18-hole championship quality golf course of San Domenico. The rooms, suites and large villas spread across three areas of the resort. The first is La Corte, which opens out into two swimming pools and the La Corte rooms. The second area, called Il Borgo, houses the family pool, the expansive piazza space and the townhouses, while 30 additional villas are dotted around the area, each with a private pool and between 3 and 7 bedrooms. Each villa is incredible spacious, with light interior tones and exclusive services. Restaurants primarily serve a mix of Apulian specialities and Mediterranean favourites, while a regular events calendar unveils opportunities for additional dining and wine-tasting.
