Fasano – Luxury in Waiting
Fortified farms sweep across the landscape of the Murge hills. The Adriatic Sea shimmers with sapphire hues against the golden coastline. Olive trees average an age of 100 years old, predated by the nearly millennium-old streets of Fasano. The town grew around the 11th-century Santa Maria de Fajano Castle. The city walls shimmer with white limestone against the glinting waters. Palm trees shade the promenade and offer respite from the lowing Southern Italian sunlight. Your flight lands at Bari Karol Wojtyla Airport, where your private transfer greets you upon your arrival. Olive trees grow dense as forests with the sea breeze carrying the enticing aroma of the water.
The town itself is located along the hills overlooking the Adriatic, adorned with the Torrione delle Fogge, the single remaining watchtower of the original 11. Your transfer leads you to the remarkable grounds of your accommodation. Women embroider while sitting near the doorway of the small white homes. Clotheslines radiate colorful garments drying in the sun. Vineyards stretch across the countryside, leading to the slopes of the Murgia. You stroll through the charming central plaza of your resort-style accommodation, offering a sense of a traditional Puglian village with the luxury of seclusion and modern amenities. Your private balcony offers a view of the garden. For a sumptuous welcome, you sample a local sweet delicacy of pistachio ice cream with luscious extra-virgin olive oil poured over the top like chocolate sauce.
