Borgo Egnazia is far from a resort, it represents rather a new concept of hospitality. Its creation was inspired by the beautiful Apulian land where it was born, a striking architectural force that reveals the magic of Puglia with contemporary and unique style. The Melpignano family has a vision: combining Puglia with luxury, refined hospitality, cultural richness and elite tourism. It all started in 1996 with Masseria San Domenico, originally the family’s private vacation home and later-- following a careful interpretation of the living spaces, “La Masseria” (The Masseria), a 5L-Leading Hotels of the World and the model of Apulian luxury hospitality.
Borgo Egnazia was built entirely of tufo, a local type of limestone and cut by the skilled hands of tufo masters. The architect and set designer Pino Brescia was inspired by Puglia’s farms and rural villages, from nature, and from simplicity. The stately construction is a harmonious blend of tradition and innovation, modernity and authenticity, mightiness and simplicity.
Apulian gastronomy is recognized all over the world for its Mediterranean nature and variety. Every restaurant at Borgo Egnazia guarantees the highest quality in food and service, along with different sceneries and atmospheres guaranteed to satisfy every type of taste and need.
