La Valletta is located in the countryside of Ischitella, on a scenic hill immersed in the light and sounds of nature, only 15 minutes’ drive from the beach of Rodi and from the lake of Varano. An ideal location for touring the Gargano.

The accommodation consists of four fully renovated  eighteenth-century lodges and sleeps up to 30 guests. All bedrooms have air-conditioning and en-suite bathrooms.

Guests can use the following services:

  • Large swimming pool (26x 15 meters) – a valuable alternative to the sea, on windy days with a a six-seat Jacuzzi (FREE)

Guests can also attend Italian cooking classes directly by Franco Milone courses, country cook, to prepare local dishes.

Our restaurant uses fresh local produce as much as possible.  This is reflected in our menu, which depends on the ingredients we produce or buy on the day.
This philosophy has earned us an entry in the  slow food guide.

The tastes of the Gargano are on the table!

Traditional cuisine based on fresh ingredients purchased daily from local farmers.

We use only the extra-virgin olive oil we make ourselves.  In cooking, we take the care and time necessary to enhance the dishes’ flavours.

The translation of this philosophy into practice explains why the   slow food guide recommends us.

 The price of a meat-based menu (appetizer, first course, main course, fruit, water and wine) is approx. 25 euros. The price of a fish-based one is approx. 30 euros.

Only for lunch, our guests can ask (the evening before) for a light menu, even in the price.

 With its large fireplace for the winter, the restaurant offers 50 seats.  In the summer, guests can enjoy from the wide porch the spectacular sunsets over the lagoon.

 Gli strascinati primavera col cacioricotta fresco, i maccarun’ cacarn’, l’insalata ricca di tutte le verdure di stagione e dei profumi del Gargano, la farinata alle cime di rape, fave cicoria e zucca, il capretto alle erbette di campo, il tortino di pesce azzurro, la tagliata di tonno fresco, le mazzancolle nude e le mille ricette della nonna.

The agritourism “La Valletta” is located in the countryside of Ischitella (FG), in the Gargano promontory, 15 minutes far (by car) from the sea.

 For those traveling by car… Motorway A-14, exit at “Poggio Imperiale”. You must follow the state road 693 to the exit “Rodi-Ischitella”. At this point you should head towards Ischitella for 150 yards and, immediately after passing under the bridge of the highway, turn right.  Once there, you just follow the signs to “La Valletta” which is still 1,500 meters far.

 GPS Coordinates: 41.8918°N 15.8718°E

“Ferrovie del Gargano” connects with buses the promontory to the main Italian cities (Rome, Venice, Milan, etc).
The airports of Pescara and Bari are equidistant from the Gargano.
