Borgo Egnazia Hotel and Villas is a wonderfully Italian Chic sophisticated resort. It has a pristine yet relaxed elegance, with a total commitment to regional resources. Evident in the design, with the emphasis on local stone, space and light.
Located on a private olive-tree estate between the two main towns of Bari and Brindisi, approximately 50 minutes transfer from either airport. The attractive little port village of Savelletri is just a few minutes walk or shuttle away.
Within the adult-focused main building (La Corte) you have 63 contemporary styled Superior and larger Deluxe Rooms, with either courtyard or pool view. Some are described by the hotel as having sea view, but this will be from a distance and across the trees and the golf course.
At Le Ville you have 29 prestigious split level Three Bedroom Villas. Each has their own pool and are located on the estate perimeter.They are all wonderfully spacious, individually themed and designed and priced separately.
Within the attractive Borgo Village (Il Borgo) area you have 92 more authentically designed Studios and particularly good Family Suites. Located closer to the kids club and pool.
All of Borgo Egnazia’s accommodations throughout the resort are easily linked by attractive arches, courtyards and pathways.
Note – See our comment on the hotel’s sea view described above. The Villas are individually named and priced, depending on design, layout and facilities.
Children under 12 years will not be accepted in the La Corte (main building) from 15 June to 15 September 2018. This is to limit the number of children in the peak summer months allowing “quiet“ zones.

Borgo Egnazia offers superb Italian chic and simple contemporary elegance. Stunningly designed and so very relaxing.
Take time to explore. Get lost in the maze of courtyards and alleyways in the village area top easily immerse yourself in the beauty of the place.
The main building is particularly popular with couples. The Borgo Village area good for those with one or two children and who enjoy a more rustic design style. The villas are suitable for larger families looking for more opulent accommodation. As you would expect, Borgo Egnazia is popular with families in the mid-summer months. In the spring and autumn months, it becomes more couples focused.
The resort does play host to several championship golf tournaments during the year.
The immediate area is interesting, with many coastal and hillside villages to explore. A hire car will assist your flexibility. There are taxis but need advance booking. The little village of Savelletri is close to the larger beach club and is about 5 minutes by shuttle from the hotel. Here you will find several attractive dining options (usually open Easter to October)
The early Autumn months are pleasant with bright sunny days but without the searing heat of mid-summer. The weather is still good, there will be fewer people and the prices are reduced. Once the schools have resumed, the resort takes on a serene romantic atmosphere.

Holidays in Europe are fantastic. However, it is important to have your passport clearly stamped with your exit date.

I last visited Thailand in December 2021. At the time travel was limited and you had to take a test before and on arrival. This time it was much more open. I arrived in Phuket, showed my Thailand pass and vaccination certificates, and collected my case – all within 45 minutes.
Confidence to travel again has certainly returned as Covid cases around the world continue to drop. Virtually every country (or at least those Chic Locations feature) has relaxed its entry protocols and whilst there are still a few in-destination regulations these are...

Even though the passport office say they can cope with demand at the moment, I have still been told to expect at least 4 /6 weeks for a new passport to arrive. As travel demand increases the longer it will take unless you want to pay extra for fast track…
The UK Government, both the Home office and the Foreign and Commonwealth office, have now approved travel to the Maldives. This is fantastic news and comes at exactly the right time for winter escapism.
Many islands in the Caribbean have been placed on the Green Watch list. This means the islands will have their vaccination success monitored by the UK Government on a weekly basis…
Although the Sandbox scheme has improved week on week since its introduction in early July, and most of the southern resorts have a high vaccination rate and low cases, the UK Government has chosen to look at the entire country and made it all on the UK Red traffic light NO GO area.
It is highly probably the resort island of Phuket will re-open to international travellers from the first week of July 2021. We have a few ideas…
The present traffic like system for travel introduced by the UK Government was maybe well-intentioned but has probably lead to even more confusion. So this is an attempt to clarify, in deliberately simplistic terms.
