  •   About me

    Hallo, I'm Ilaria, and my job is making artistic ceramics.
    I was born in Rome but in my 25 I moved to Apulia. My father comes from this wonderful place and I spent all my summers in childhood here. I fall in love with this place!
    I have 10 years of experience in the tourism and I deeply love Salento, I have chosen to live here! Therefore:

  • I will give you all the information to guide you in this area.
  • You will have a super-complete guide of everything that the area offers.
  • Tailor-made indications for you: do you want to dance? Visit museums? Or trekking?
  • I will not show you the most famous restaurant, but the one where the local inhabitants go!
  •  Houses with a heart

    My holiday houses are not impersonal houses furnished to be rented to tourists. They are renovated with love because they were built by my father, so many FAMILY MEMORIES are linked to it. I grew up here and I start to walk at few months on this tiles, me too!
    These houses have a soul, which is that of almost 50 years of family history. Every corner of them has a story that I know well, that I could tell you, which is part of me and my family, and of TRUE Apulia.
    Every little detail has been thought, created, renovated, put with love. Moreover the modern furniture, you will find:

  • wooden block furniture crafted by my father;
  • renovated furniture belonging to my grandparents;
  • vintage furniture and objects renovated by me in the aspect and in the function;
  • vintage tiles;
  • Apulian landscapes photos taken by me.
