Summer 2021: the holidays are approaching and Vogue writes its travel notes for you, full of inspirations and places to visit. Today we take you to Fasano, in the province of Brindisi. Here, on the other hand, you will find a special place in the shadow of the Belluno Dolomites. Stay connected to read the next episodes too
In front there is only the sea, a calm blue expanse, whose slow lapping accompanies the scent of salt on the lawn, towards the terrace, and reaches the rooms, where its savory and lively note mixes with delicate scent of bergamot and white flowers.
An understatement luxury, made up of wonderful silences, large private spaces, light colors, fine fabrics and furniture. To the Canne Bianche Lifestyle Hotel, the only five-star beach hotel in the Region, in the Torre Canne di Fasano (BI) district – we are in one of the most beautiful areas of Puglia – you find the sense of time. The one to dedicate to yourself, in the early morning, during a lesson of barefoot yoga on the lawn, or what is necessary to enjoy the end of a book curled up on the chaise longue in the private patio, and still the time to relax in the saunas and emotional showers in the SPA, ending with a massage based on products inspired by the philosophy of “marine biomimicry”.
And the sea is a constant reminder, a horizon in front of which to stroll after having breakfast, or to discover, on one of the catamaran excursions organized by the hotel, touching the impressive cliffs of the nearby Polignano a mare.
Not far is the regional park “Dune Costiere di Torre Canne in Torre San Leonardo”, where, with a helmet on, you get on an e-bike to parade between ancient farms and centuries-old olive groves to which the wind makes the silver leaves shine; one of the most interesting stops is at the underground oil mill obtained from a medieval tomb. A trip that ends, for those who want, with a tasting of oils at the Narducci farm, including an excellent Coratina variety extra virgin olive oil.
Returning to Canne Bianche, a little relaxation in your room – even if it is really impossible to pass in front of the small internal boutique without starting to browse and browse – or a drink and a little sun by the pool or a dip in the sea, before sitting on the terrace for an aperitif.
The kitchen is a strong point of the hotel, that of raw fish under a pergola in the garden it is the preferred option for a light lunch or dinner for two, but you can also try the local one, rich and appetizing, it also transforms the atmosphere into convivial and relaxed.
And for those who want to get their hands on (and make the summer 2021 holidays pay off) you just need to book a cooking lesson with Mrs. Lena, which sympathetically reveals all the secrets of the Apulian tradition. An option designed for when it rains, which, on the other hand, is successful even in the clear. The first time you make the taralli, then the orecchiette, and for the repeater customers, who are many here, given the ease of reaching the hotel by plane over Brindisi, you can venture out with panzerotti. To be replicated once back home.
