Borgo Egnazia, Savelletri Puglia, Italy
Borgo Egnazia in Puglia is designed to resemble the traditional Pugliese village, a cluster of low stone buildings and villas connected by narrow walkways, earning full marks for local color. Inside these spaces, however, the look is considerably less rustic — the off-white stone still dominates the color palette, but an element of contemporary luxury is introduced. The sixty-three guest rooms in the Borgo’s main building are more than comfortable enough, and not at all lacking for space. But some families need more, and the Borgo Egnazia hears the call — the village suites come in one- and two-bedroom varieties, and the twenty-eight villas have three bedrooms each. A very comprehensive spa makes the most of its traditional stone construction, providing plenty of atmosphere to accompany its tactile charms. The village is pretty well self-contained, thanks to a small handful of restaurants, and the list of activities is a long one: in addition to the golf course, three pools, two beach clubs, a tennis academy and a cooking school ensure you’re never at a loss for something to do.
