The palatial Borgo Egnazia has long been a favourite here at the Inspiring Travel Company, thanks to its grand architecture, outstanding dining and luxurious accommodation options. The Vair Spa is another huge part of why this is one of Puglia’s premier places to stay; we took a closer look…
Spread over more than 2,000 square-metres, the Vair Spa offers a wide range of treatments on either an à la carte basis or as part of personalised therapy programmes. Ideal for those who wish to totally relax, unwind and get away from it all on holiday, the spa is the ultimate place to de-stress. Recent innovation at the spa has seen the formation of new retreats, which encourage guests to fully immerse themselves in the wellness process.
Fùre: Sport & Spa
This programme focusses on reinvigoration and rejuvenation, with a close connection to the nature of Puglia. This is a break from typical spa activities, and offers a totally new perspective on wellness. The programme takes part mostly outdoors, and features activities ranging from juggling to a traditional folk dance. Guests will also find themselves scaling olive trees and visiting the Roman baths. As part of the total immersion in this active lifestyle, the resort’s chef and a nutritionist will prepare a personalised Mediterranean menu, tailored specifically to your needs and dietary requirements.
This retreat is available 26 – 30 April, 10 – 14 May, 24 – 28 October, 1 – 5 November, 2018.
