Here, four women, each with strong generational roots in the Salento region, make you feel as if you’ve stepped into an old Italian family home. Crafted upon layers of ancient Salento and Apulian tradition, our cuisine respects the seasons and is formed using natural ingredients brought by farmers to the hotel daily.
