Our story is very simple, originating from Rita’s resolution to devote herself full time to the fulfilment of her greatest desire in life: cooking as a way of expressing her creativity. After saying goodbye to Rome and its hectic pace, the decision to move to her grandparents’ village and create a family-run, homemade-food place is promptly taken. After the total restructuring of an old, solid building on the main street, we set off on the adventure!
It was an instant success, and the following year our structure was completed with the launching of the upper-floor accommodation facility – five rooms, opening on a charming, secluded inner court, reserved for our guests’ exclusive enjoyment. The positive feedback we have received from our visitors is the reward for our commitment and dedication to hospitality. Official recognition came in 2015, with TripAdvisor awarding us the Excellence Certificate.
