Recently I had the pleasure of staying at the Borgo Egnazia Resort and Spa in Puglia, Italy. They will tell you it is “far more than a resort but rather represents a new concept of hospitality.” Right on the Mediterranean Sea it offers magnificent rooms, The San Domenico Golf, an 18 hole championship course facing the sea, 2 private beaches, The Vair spa and did I mention the Mediterranean food!!! There are 3 large outdoor pools, one heated indoor pool, 4 tennis courts, swimming, cooking and ceramics lessons as well as water sports, game and reading rooms. Borgo is dedicated to providing a unique family experience. Kids play, parents RELAX!

The unique architecture of this resort is like nothing I have ever experienced.  The simple but unique design details emphasizing the repetition of an item were luxurious but welcoming and cozy.

Here is some history of the creation of this resort taken right out of their brochure. (Thank you Borgo Egnazia since I could not have said it better myself). “The Melpignano family had a vision: combining Puglia with luxury, refined hospitality, cultural richness and elite tourism.” “Borgo Egnazia was built entirely of tufo, a local type of limestone..” “The architect … Pino Brescia was inspired by Puglia’s farms and rural villages, from nature, and from simplicity.”

Keep following my blogs!  I am headed to Venice, Florence and Tuscany this summer so the journey continues.
