GIBÒ – BEST LOCATION IN ITALY 2018
Gigi Costa’s marvellous jewel – the Gibò – after receiving recognition as a “Treasure of Italy”, continues to succeed at international level.
Winning the honour this time of “Best Location of Italy” was thanks to the numerous votes we received from readers of the Food and Travel Italy website, an international magazine founded in Great Britain in 1995 and now published in several languages in fourteen countries worldwide.
The awards ceremony took place on Friday 12 October during the prestigious Italian edition of the 2018 Food and Travel Italy Awards, against the luxurious backdrop of the Forte Village in Santa Margherita di Pula in Sardinia.
Sponsored by ENIT, the event was entirely dedicated to rewarding Italian, as well as international, excellence in food and wine, beverages, gourmet travel and the tourism sectors at the highest level.
The event was attended by food and travel publishers from around the world, sponsors, celebrities, institutions, and both national and international sectorial journalists including the well-known figure in Italy – Bruno Vespa.
The reasons for winning the award:
“Gibò came out on top most importantly due to the absolute beauty and uniqueness of its location, the emotions evoked by the Gibò experience, its ability to promote the highest standards of excellence in its services offered and for its robust international strategy which aims at promoting its brand worldwide.”
“Il Gibò,” continues Pamela Reali, editor of the Italian magazine, “that famous masterpiece by the sea, just a stone’s throw from Santa Maria di Leuca, is a venue to dream of, absolutely unique …. able to evoke infinite emotions.”
With its splendid expanse covering 8000 square metres, its five levels, twenty-five spacious open terraces looking out over the sea, the timeless cave nestling on the headland, the Gibò is today one of the most dreamt-of venues for weddings and unforgettable events in Italy – a great triumph for a great “wonder”.
Yet more recognition of the value of a venue of incommensurable charm whose setting bursts with all the beauty of Apulia and Southern Italy. Moreover, this is an award that honours the founder of Gibò, Gigi Costa, as well as its managing director, Marta Costa (both pictured above receiving the award). It also celebrates the success of a company that is establishing itself evermore as a symbol of Italian excellence.
This all bodes for a wonderful future for Gibò and for the extraordinary show that we are sure we will continue to offer our guests from all over the world.
