From the owners of the Masserias San Domenico and Cimono respectively comes Borgo Egnazia, the single smartest luxury hotel on the Puglian coast, with private villas for families and a boutique hotel for couples.

Harriet, Kate L and Victoria are here to help give you the inside track.

Set in 40 acres of grounds, the Borgo is designed to replicate a traditional Puglian village, with 72 two-bedroomed and two-storey townhouses and 28 additional three-bedroomed villas complete with terraces and pools. There is a kids club here, and also a shallow pool for youngsters.

The hotel itself has just 67 rooms, which are the smartest of any hotel in the region, all with huge beds, big bathrooms with baths, power showers and balconies. Nothing here is done in half measures - in addition to the villas and hotel, there are not one but two beach clubs, five restaurants, a cookery school, a huge spa and discounted rates at by far the best golf course in the region.

Of the restaurants, Due Camini is the gourmet a la carte affair, La Frasca is a more traditional Apulian setting and Trattoria Mia Cucina is more rustic and relaxed and serves pizza and pasta. No prizes for guessing what A Pizzeri serves, and there's even a children's restaurant, Trullalleri. There are three separate bars at which to enjoy a drink, either on a charming terrace or by the pool.

Guests can enjoy the excellent spa, play golf or explore the surroundings, including the Roman town of Egnazia and the UNESCO World Heritage town of Alberobello.
