".. It will be a vacation we will never forget! .."
Our extended family visited Lenola and the surrounding areas in 2017 and we loved this wonderful hilltop town, nestled amongst the hills, with a view all the way to the sea. It was a combination of a “quiet and quaint” town but with high-end restaurants, lovely ancient olive groves, and close to the ocean. We felt we were in a time from long ago. Our accommodations were perfect, with such a great view from the there, with a large dining room and a delicious breakfast each morning. We took off to see nearby towns and beaches, and everyone there was friendly, and our guide was amazing! It will be a vacation we will never forget! Maria was very knowledgeable, organized, and offered choices for all of us, including some downtime. She knows everything about the area and beyond!”
"The area opens your eyes, taste buds and hearts to a part of Italy…"
This sea and hillside area is truly unique - the little wonders and humble, warm but unmatchable local culture boasts a tradition of fresh and quality produce and excellent meals whether at home or fine dining in the area’s famous restaurants. The area unveils a side to Italian cuisine you cannot find in the big cities, and an equally special tranquillity. Maria’s tour of this area opens your eyes, taste buds and hearts to a part of Italy that will reveal to travellers the whole story behind the rich Italian cuisine and culture.
"A breath of fresh air..."
…“After the hustle and bustle of Rome, the Lenola area was a breath of fresh air. Pristine coast and hillside views were overshadowed only by the phenomenal level of their cuisine. The local culture is infused with a genuine love for food and hospitality. Everywhere we went seemed to have their own specialty olive oil, house wine or salami, each fantastic. Food was fresh and often home grown. Warm, welcoming and humble, but with an unmistakable glint of pride in their craft, the eateries and restaurants we visited produced a top-notch experience. It’s hard not to find everything charming and welcoming when eating food like that.”
