Justin Timberlake and Puglia

Ok.  How many of you have heard of Justin Timberlake?  Apparently he is not very well known in Italy or in an age group such as mine....I seem to remember he was in the Mickey Mouse club, but he has grown up. Apparently he is a singer and sometime actor.

He recently married Jessica Biel, and they chose Puglia for their wedding.  I was quite intrigued and wondered where they went.  This is it.  If you have the time, and money this is a remarkable place to stay.  I think it is the most interesting architectural hotel I have ever been in.  The interior design is fabulous, the service was top notch and the food, of course was fantastic.  We were there in January, their lowest price time.  The weather was cold and windy, but really to stay in such a beautiful place, we didn't mind.  The resort is in Fasano and is called Borgo Egenzia.  Here is a link


Here are photos from the Stoic One.  Enjoy:

The entrance to the hotel is behind me.  The check in is behind and to the right, as you walk in, this is your first visual of the place.

As I said, the hotel is interesting from an artistic point of view.  Everywhere you look, it seems like you want to take a picture or wonder what you looking at.  This is one of the hallways on the floor of our room.

This is looking down at the entrance. The architect designed this so that people would get lost, and discover new things and sights.  The numbers on the rooms are really difficult to find, but even I became relaxed with this idea of exploring.

Empty wine bottles were used everywhere as decoration. The lobby level is filled with nooks such as this to sit, have a cup of coffee, read or talk.  It is like an Arabian nights place without the color.

Although it was too cold for us to use, there are two pools, one for adults and one for children.  There is also an indoor pool, which we never found.

This is Adelle and me as we are getting ready to leave.  We are bundled up because it was cold! Once we save enough money we want to come back in warmer weather.  This was an enchanting place.
