Borgo Egnazia

Puglia, Italy

Welcome to Casa Monti, an Italian residence reimagined and opened to the world, inspired by the magnificent city of Rome. Just steps away from the Colosseum, Monti is a charming and eclectic neighborhood that showcases the vibrancy and resilience of the eternal city. It is a place where old meets new, and history meets contemporary culture.

The property’s 63-bedroom La Corte building; 92-bedroom Borgo; and 28 private villas are woven together by narrow side streets and winding alleys, mirroring the charming unexpectedness often found in small Italian villages. You’ll also find pools, private beaches, six restaurants, the inimitable Vair Spa, and the championship San Domenico Golf course.

The story

Inspired by the shapes, materials, and colours of a traditional Puglian village, Borgo Egnazia seamlessly blends tradition and originality, offering an experience you’ll find “nowhere else.”

Your stay

The Egnazia Suite in La Corte has its own private garden and pool, making it one of our favorites rooms to stay in. The Borgo rooms allow you to be right in the centre of the action, while the villas – which sleep up to eight – are perfect for families.

Being part of Querido means being part of an extended family that shares the same values and passions. We are all united by our desire to offer guests an experience rooted in authenticity, showcasing the spirit and beauty of the local culture. Together we aspire to have happy guests that leave inspired after discovering the traditions of each incredible destination.

How to spend your time

The hotel’s Tennis Academy promises to “bring out the tennis player in all of us,” and even if it doesn’t, spending time on this lush, flora-filled court is still worth it. When you’re done, head to Vair Spa for a relaxing spa treatment inspired by traditional Puglian rituals, or indulge in a fresh seafood lunch by the beach. If you’re lucky, the seasonal festivals in the Borgo are truly a “nowhere else” experience.
