NATURE IN PUGNOCHIUSO
The resort is on the Apulia promontory of the Gargano, within the National Park by the same name, at the edge of the Umbra Forest, 20 kilometres from Vieste and approximately 30 kilometres from Mattinata. It extends over an area of approximately 150 hectares in a beautiful position reaching down towards the sea, with two adjacent bays of crystal-clear sea: the bay of Pugnochiuso, from which the resort takes its name and the bay of Portopiatto.
The Resort, which was purchased by the Marcegaglia Group in 2001, has continued to renew its accommodation structures and services over the years, becoming part of the Group's tourism and property pole operating under the "MARCEGAGLIA tourism" trademark.
Today, thanks to a diversified tourist offer able to provide the perfect solution to all expectations, Pugnochiuso is the perfect holiday resort for families and couples alike.
An exclusive place that combines with uncontaminated nature to make it truly one-of-a-kind.
THE RESORT CONCEPT
Entrance to the resort is limited by a barrier, beyond which only those with the right to enter, such as a hotel booking, can do so. The resort porters are set up near the barrier.
The territory that extends for around 150 hectares includes approximately 20 kilometres of roads that unwind to connect the various structures. The shuttle bus enables easy moving throughout the resort structures, ensuring cars are left in the private car park near the porters.
The different residential solutions inside the resort live happily side-by-side with the resort life organised in the summer season for MARCEGAGLIA Hotels & Resorts.
The Pugnochiuso Resort consists of structures, villas, residence and services that are private property and managed by different condominium associations and structures and services owned by the Marcegaglia Group, such as: the Hotel Del Faro****, Hotel degli Ulivi***, the Macine Villas, the Belvedere Residence, the Congress Centre, the "La Piramide" Shopping Centre, managed and marketed under the "MARCEGAGLIA Hotels & Resorts" trademark.
