SAN DOMENICO GOLF – THE GREAT GREEN ON THE PUGLIAN SEA
San Domenico Golf is located where the Puglian countryside meets the azure of the Adriatic sea, perfectly nested between the slopes of the Itria valley and the touristic port of Savelletri.
Characterized by a combination of strategically positioned bunkers and intricate mistral-oriented design, this prestigious links course designed by the European Golf Design in London winds through gentle slopes, zigzagging among centenary olive trees and glimpses of the ancient city of Egnathia. This is why it is not surprising that it has established itself as one of the best golf clubs in Italy.
An ancient olive mill now houses the charming restaurant with star-vaulted arched ceilings and a large stone fireplace with roaring fire at its centre, making it a perfect location to host lunches, dinners and small events during the cooler months. Paying homage to its original use as an olive mill, the restaurant offers specialities from the traditional Apulian cuisine, based on a rich selection of local vegetables grown in San Domenico’s surrounding properties as well as home-made products which include the extra olive oil. During the long Apulian summer, sit at the romantic south facing terraces to enjoy aperitifs or relax at the poolside restaurant for a buffet lunch or a candle-lit dinne
The Mediterranean Diet is the combination of all the food habits in use among the populations overlooking the Mediterranean, characterized by the presence and cultivation of olive trees. Olive oil is actually the only type of fat consumed in this diet. This food model, which is even under UNESCO's protection as world intangible cultural heritage, has proved unique in assuring the permanence of a good health condition along the years, as the results of a recent research published by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition also demonstrate. By gathering information on the food habits of over 120,000 men and women from 1986 to today, Dr Piet A. van den Brandt could connect the Mediterranean Diet with a decrease in the mortality rate of as much as 15 years for women and 8 years for men! And that's not all. This diet is a low-calorie food regimen meant to make you loose weight, but also and most importantly a lifestyle where typical recipes, old flavours and specialties from the South of Italy are recovered and where "interaction with the social environment, respect for the territory, biodiversity, conservation and further enhancement of traditions are promoted", as spoken by Dr. Grassi, a nutritionist cooperating with Masseria San Domenico as well as Secretary to the Foundation for Mediterranean Diet NPO. The Mediterranean diet goes beyond the counting of calories and it overthrows the concept of diet as privation and sacrifice, promoting instead the physical and psychological wellbeing of the person. It is a low-fat food regimen, poor in refined foods and rich in simple ingredients, arriving on the table unrefined and as found in nature: tomatoes, olive oil, legumes, seasonal fruits and vegetables. Simple and authentic ingredients, especially rich in micronutrients with protective effect, such as vitamins, fibres and essential minerals, which strengthen the immune system, shield from many diseases and delay the ageing process. Carbohydrates are the key element of this dietary pattern, but they are selected based on their glycaemic index among those having the lowest insulin response (i.e. they don't increase the sugar level in the blood delaying hunger sensation), such as wholemeal pasta and rice, oatmeal, rye bread, etc. "With the Mediterranean diet" says Dr. Grassi "you don't loose a lot of weight at the beginning, as it is often the case with high-protein diets, but this is an advantage as it allows you to eliminate fat instead of water" and hence to maintain the acquired ideal weight for longer.
Our Spa is inspired by the principles of the Mediterranean lifestyle and aims to achieve a state of healthy, joyful and sustainable wellbeing. Every element is designed to reach the highest standards of wellness through the essential elements of thalassotherapy and completely natural ingredients such as olive oil.
