Savelletri is a small village in the province of Fasano, a destination for numerous tourists looking for a quiet but extraordinarily beautiful place in which to spend their holidays. The town is home to the Marina, where around 300 boats are docked and around which many farms have been renovated and used as holiday homes, bed & breakfasts or hotels, a way for tourists to breathe in the traditions of the past of these places and these buildings but in a comfortable and elegant key given by the modern furnishings and the numerous five-star services offered by the innkeepers.

The Savelletri masserie (farms) are increasingly appreciated even by VIPs who choose them as wonderful locations for their wedding or as a comfortable and luxurious “refuge” to take a break from their hectic lives and professional commitments. This was the perfect setting for many celebrity weddings such as the one between the singer Justin Timberlake and the actress Jessica Biel; that of the daughter of the rich American real estate developer Jeff Sutton, Renee or of the rich Indians Ritika Agawarl and Rohan Metha.

Many sportsmen from our country also got married here: the football player Giandomenico Mesto with the showgirl Sara Facciolini; the AC Milan footballer Ignazio Abate with his partner Valentina Del Vecchio and the tennis players Flavia Pennetta and Fabio Fognini. Internationally famous footballers, athletes, actors and musicians spend their holidays here: Marco Van Basten, Noel Gallagher, Maria Sharapova, Madonna (who always celebrates her birthday there), the Beckham family and even Barack Obama.

The beaches of Savelletri are suitable for anyone looking for relaxation and entertainment for their summer: the sand allows you to enjoy the holiday with the little ones but even for the younger ones there will be no shortage of fun with the many happy hours organized at the beaches. Here, the sea is one of the many prides of this land, certified 4 sails by Lega Ambiente and Bandiera Blu (Blue Flag).

The beaches equipped with umbrellas and sunbeds are suitable for all those who want to relax and tan under the sun of this wonderful land, perhaps enjoying a cocktail, eating fresh fruit or tasting a typical octopus sandwich. Among the services offered by the managers there are boat tours (with the possibility of fishing) or dinghy rental, to explore the surrounding waters full of coves and deserted beaches.

There is also no shortage of water sports or experiences to do: parasailing (parachuting) which allows you to experience the incredible thrill of admiring the entire coast and the seabed from above, a sport suitable for the most daring and adrenaline-filled but, being able to do it even in as a couple, it can also become a romantic experience to live with your sweetheart; again, flyboarding, a water sport that allows those who practice it to perform extraordinary maneuvers on the water.

What to see in Savelletri

The small port is one of the most characteristic points of the town of Savelletri and from here you can admire the typical white houses, some of which have been used as fishmongers and others as charming restaurants where you can eat excellent traditional cuisine.

For all lovers of history and archaeology, not far from Savelletri, the Egnazia Archaeological Park is unmissable, where traces of human presence relating to the Middle Bronze Age and remains of the Roman Via Traiana have been found; then there is no shortage of necropolises, including the Tomba delle Melagrane (Tomb of the Pomegranates), so called because this fruit is found in frescoes in the upper part of the tomb.

For the entertainment of the little ones and to spend carefree hours in joy, you can reach the nearby Borgo Egnazia water park with its water slides.

Where to stay in Savelletri

For an unforgettable holiday experience, the ideal choice is to stay in one of the typical Savelletri farms, restored to best mix history and tradition with modernity and comfort.

These are five-star structures such as Masseria Torre Coccaro, equipped with rooms with a garden and all comforts as well as a splendid swimming pool with a beach effect (even if the sea is only 4 km away). There is also a wellness center and a restaurant that offers traditional and refined dishes (among other things, you can also take cooking courses with the chef).

Masseria Torre Maizza, located overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and surrounded by an expanse of olive trees, is the right place to relax or practice sports such as tennis, horse riding, clay pigeon shooting but also golf due to its proximity to the San Domenico Golf Club 18 holes.

Again, Masseria Borgo Egnazia, a structure designed together with the architect and set designer Pino Brescia, entirely made of tuff, the local stone worked by master tufa workers, to combine rurality and simplicity with luxury and exclusivity. It is the ideal choice for staying with your families, being divided into apartments, villas and rooms, suitable for all needs. You can tan and have fun on the two private beaches or on board one of the four swimming pools (three outdoor and one heated indoor) or, again, dance in the ballroom, train on the tennis courts or go shopping in the mini shop . A plus will be being able to regenerate in what has been awarded as the “Best Wellness Spa in the World“, an elegant wellness center in which to rediscover your psychophysical well-being.
