    Happiness and Longevity at Borgo Egnazia, Puglia, Italy

    Outdoor Pool

    Every day of the year, in all seasons, Borgo Egnazia embodies a different concept of hospitality and well-being based on local and authentic experiences. A place unique in the world that brings the tales of Puglia to life through timeless architecture, the beauty and centuries-old culture of the territory, the visionary and contemporary interpretation of tradition. Everything contributes to the search for a new balance and a renewed happiness among tailor-made experiences and a very high level of hospitality. In perfect Puglian style.

    At Borgo Egnazia well-being is everywhere. Whether it is a spa experience inspired by ancient local techniques, a class of Iyengar yoga or an afternoon dedicated to discovering the natural beauty of the countryside on a cycle tour with a local guide, everyone is free to find his own equilibrium according to taste. Here, everything is designed to ensure you spend precious time at your own pace, synchronizing with the Puglian rhythm.

    A pleasant, if not spectacular, setting near the seaside town of Savelletri in eastern Puglia: Borgo Egnazia is couched between the ruins of the ancient Roman settlement from which it takes its name and the beautiful, championship golf course of San Domenico. You can stroll through the course (or take the free shuttle bus) to the coast where there’s a rocky cove for swimming and the Cala Masciola beach club and restaurant. Midway between Bari airport (40 miles north) and Brindisi (35 miles south), it’s well placed for kicking around the heel of Italy’s boot.

    What other way to describe Borgo Egnazia than a corner of paradise in Puglia where you can spend time immersed in genuine and authentic local traditions while also enjoying high quality services.

    Borgo is the Italian word for village. Borgo Egnazia, a stroll from the Adriatic Sea on the fertile plains of Puglia, is a village of dreams hewn in the beautiful white Tufo stone of the region, a 21st century creation that sparks the imagination with its characterful buttresses and the higgledy-piggledy layout of the casette around the central Piazza.

    Everything, from the breakfast prepared by the loving hands of locals, the gourmet dishes that combine flavors inspired by the traditional Mediterranean diet, to the two private beaches (La Fonte and Cala Masciola) which are only accessible for clients of Borgo Egnazia, and the Vair Spa, where innovation and tradition mix harmoniously, to the romantic San Domenico Golf from where you can admire the horizon and the sea meets the ancient olive trees, ensures a unique and unforgettable experience.

    Join a Longevity Blue Zones Retreat or program
    Borgo Egnazia is partnering with Blue Zones to offer a series of life-changing retreat or ongoing programs inspired by the lifestyle and habits of the world’s longest-living people of the Blue Zones areas. For a better, healthier and longer life.

    Borgo Egnazia, the first BLUE ZONES certified hospitality partner worldwide, embraces all these characteristics, which can be found in the harmony with nature and the local people, in the respect of the Puglian traditions, in the values of the Mediterranean culture and in the wholesomeness of the local products. All seasoned with a healthy daily dose of natural movement.

    The Borgo Egnazia Blue Zone Retreats  and programs will focus on evidence-based solutions from the world’s longest-lived people delivered in a practical format that makes healthy living easy and sustainable. Activities include genuine food habits, health-conscious meals and traditional cooking classes, natural movement sessions in the Puglian countryside.

    WHAT IS BLUE ZONES? Sharing lifestyle secrets to longevity.
    BLUE ZONES is an innovative project about longevity and quality of life. It reflects the lifestyle, traditions and the environment of the world’s longest-living people. Scientific research has discovered five regions of the world – called Blue Zones – where people are the healthiest and live longer than average.

    Based on the secrets captured in these rare longevity hotspots, the explorer and journalist Dan Buettner founded the “Blue Zones Project”, with the aim of enabling people to live longer, happier and better lives, learning from the populations of the Blue Zones areas.

    According to the studies conducted in collaboration with other researchers, some common denominators have emerged that are repeated in the lifestyles of these long-living cultures: a routine natural movement throughout the day, a plant-slant diet, close relationships with family and friends, and a strong sense of purpose in life. All these values can help everyone to significantly improve the quality of their lives and ultimately determine its longevity.

    The lifestyles of all Blue Zones area residents share nine specific characteristics – called the Power 9® – that lead to people’s well-being and to their longevity.
