Trip details

Day 1

Relax with private transfers from Bari Airport. Travel to a luxury resort located in the heart of Puglia, immersed among the ancient olive groves of the Itria Valley and only steps away from the crystal blue sea of Savelletri. Set in 40 acres of grounds, the Borgo is designed to replicate a traditional Puglian village, enjoy a truly luxurious stay along Puglia’s gorgeous Adriatic coastline.

Day 2

Discover the land of Primitivo visiting two estates, followed by wine tastings. Your day will also include a light lunch of traditional local produce.

In the afternoon, your English-speaking guide will take you for a guided city tour to discover the European Capital of Culture 2019 and city of stones, Matera, and to discover its UNESCO World Heritage Site, Sassi di Matera, located in the nearby Basilicata region.
Day 3

A free day to sit back and relax. The hotel has four swimming pools, and a wellness centre of almost two thousand square metres. Or why not simply laze on the beach, sipping on an Aperol spritz!

From Michelin-star cuisine to more traditional Apulian flavors in a rustic and informal setting, there’s a superb range of food on offer to ensure a unique experience each evening.

Day 4

Explore the countryside of the Itria Valley, in the very heart of Puglia. Visit a local farmhouse, where you will watch the production of mozzarella cheese, followed by a tasting of mozzarella, salami, and breads. During the day, you will continue to enjoy wine and taste local produce. Or, if you are feeling energeitc, hop on E-bikes for a ride through the Puglian countryside.

Day 5

Before your departure home, take a moment to absorb the breathtaking views of the beautiful landscape of the Adriatic coast and its intense and vivid colours. Relax with private transfers to Bari Airport.
