About Savelletri

Part of Fasano, Savelletri is a beach resort and fishing port on a beautiful stretch of coastline. The beaches are largely public and some of the best places to stay in Savelletri are very reasonably priced, so this might be a great option for those on a budget or for families. Of course the best hotels include some quite romantic and high end options if you’re looking for a quiet, but luxurious paradise…

Many of our favourite properties in are the masserie: characteristic old farmhouses in pretty hamlets. Many of these have been beautifully refurbished, few have lost their whitewashed charms and views.

Just to the north of the 300 berth port are cliffs with rows of lovely old white buildings and just to the south are rows of rocky reefs. Savelletri is also known for its romantic restaurants and seafood.There’s also plenty of charm and proper Pugilese flavour.

As well as offering plenty of peace and quiet, Savelletri is close to a number of interesting archaeological sights, a safari zoo, a castle and several really picturesque Pugliese towns.

What not to miss:

  • Bask under the sun on the picturesque beaches.
  • Spend an afternoon exploring the fascinating archaeological park of Egnazia.
  • Feast on Puglian delights at the local cafes and restaurants (the seafood is a must try).
  • Wander through the pretty streets lined with white washed buildings.

As with many destinations in Puglia, the best places to stay in Savelletri are very busy during the peak summer months, so if you don't want to be disappointed, get organised and book early.
