Yes it's me under there somewhere... well covered up at their pool bar ordering a healthy juice. They had a good variety of those.
We didn't try their lunch buffet but it looked nice. We did order a salad by the pool and I have to say that was the only negative; menu was limited and the prawns in my salad tasted so... odd... that I ended up not eating it and I was hungry ie. not that fussy!
So we jumped in a buggy that took us to their beach restaurant. It was about 10 minute journey and most definitely worth it! The beach was grass and rocks and something about the way it looked made me feel like I had stepped back in time. Very pretty.
The beach restaurant is called Pescheria da Vito. They have a fish counter with super fresh sea food and you can pretty much order anything you want prepared the way you want. Someone in our group had mussels and they were the best I had ever tasted. I had langoustine and it came out not prepared the way I had imagined but I think I can put it down to the fact that it got lost in translation.
This is what the hotel looked like inside. Loved it! White washed, calm and cool.
Our room was in the main building La Corto. It was lovely and spacious with a separate bedroom and sitting room, a big bathroom and a balcony.
To get to Borgo Egnazia we flew to Bari Airport, which was about 45 minute drive away. Apparently Brindisi Airport is a little bit nearer still.
I would most definitely return to Borgo Egnazia for a weekend or a longer holiday. Hopefully I will get to do that some day! (You can find their website in here.)
