Hidden gem in Puglia

We fell in love with this charming town the first time we arrived - its very particular Baroque architecture, maybe one of the most beautiful Piazza’s in Salento with an authentic town life, and a calm atmosphere. A true gem off the usual tourist tracks in the heart of Italy's southern paradise.


Food and Drinks

Flavors of Salento

Nardò and the surrounding area are the perfect base to discover the delicious Salento cuisine and regional wines. From homemade pasta, freshly caught seafood, Dolce and Gelato - we take great pleasure in sharing our favorite spots:

Gustavo - Salentine food with a modern twist
Antica Trattoria Salandra - Typical homemade cuisine
Caffe Parisi - Best spot at any hour of the day
La Dispensa dei Raccomandati - Excellent fresh fish
La Maruzella - Easy going fish place directly on the sea
Masseria Bellimento - Local cheeses and typical dishes in a beautiful setting
WowLecce - Our friend’s tips for Lecce



Crystal clear waters

The closest beaches are Santa Maria al Bagno and Santa Caterina (10 mins.), both offering a rather local charme. For more nature and adventure we like to go to Porto Selvaggio (rocks, perfect for snorkeling) or Punta della Suina (mix of rocky/sandy beach with shallow waters). Our favorite Lidos closeby include: Lido Litos, Lido Beija-Flor and Togo Bay-Beach.


Places to visit

Exploring the heel

The Salento region offers many possibilities to explore cute towns and wild nature: Lecce for great Aperitivo places in stunning streets, Galatina and its medieval allure and Gallipoli with its oldtown laying on an island are just a short drive away. On the eastern coast of Salento, Castro, Tricase or Santa Cesarea Terme are only a few beautiful coastal places to explore.
