Surrounded by walls of “tufo” and bright stone floors, illuminated in the amber light of hundreds of candles, the spa of Borgo Egnazia creates a very special atmosphere. The individual rooms radiate peace and warmth and the water of the baths ensures that immediately sets a sense of relaxation. This is Vair – which in the Apulian dialect means “true” – the unique Apulian spa of Borgo Egnazia. A place where guests embark on a journey to themselves in order to go through life more consciously and joyfully. A magical journey that will start in 2018 with three newly launched and different retreats that will focus on yoga, local dances and outdoor activities.
The award-winning Spa of Borgo Egnazia, in Puglia, grows and evolves towards a 360° wellness approach in synergy with the Mediterranean diet. Among the main innovations for this spring are the unparalleled Tarant, Fùre and Iyengar Yoga Retreats, which are no longer offered in the form of year-round spa programs, but distributed as full retreats with seasonal appointments throughout the year. To create a total carefree package, these unique retreats include a stay at the impressive Borgo Egnazia, as well as tailor-made spa menus based on the Mediterranean Diet, which is recognized as an Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO. Guests will also be surrounded by a team of experts, composed of chefs, nutritionists and therapists-artists who, with their individual talents, combine body, mind and Mediterranean diet for the best possible wellness experience.

Fùre is a fierce breakaway from your old self in order to find a whole new complete physical form: body, mood, mind, core.

The aim of Fùre is to live an experience of wild physical activity strongly rooted in the territory of Puglia, which consists of climbing on olive trees or jumping from dry stone walls, as well as a total immersion in the countryside, in the sea and in the Roman baths. In this program designed for sportsmen and aspiring ones (Fure 6 and Fure 3), the power of the land is being exploited 360 degree, used as physical support during training as well as energy sprinkled into the body through food. For this purpose, the chef and nutritionist offer a tailor-made Mediterranean menu according to the respective needs of the guest, which consists exclusively of products of Apulian biodiversity and is aimed at supporting muscle growth.
