We hare in the heart oh Lauria, near the wonderful coast of Maratea and not so far from "Pollino National Park".

Here, in a very friendly environement, you can find the local typical cookery and sea dishes.

The details make the difference. The shapes and the tastes are merged to give enjoy to palate and sight!!!
