Good to know...

I offer vegetarian alternatives

Anna Clelia’s house is in Locorotondo, where her large terrace looks out over the wonderful Itria Valley. This village, located in the Apulian hinterland, is small and pretty, full of white houses with pointed roofs. Locorotondo is in a strategic position,  just halfway to the Adriatic sea and the Ionian sea and the bucolic Apulian countryside.

«My family is really big and we have always considered lunch and dinner to be moments as almost sacred». For our Cesarina, welcoming new guests into her flat and serving them local treats is a real celebration of flavours!
