Cultural Details: Aradeo has greek-byzantine origins: the name comes from the greek word charadreon that means land crossed by streams. Indeed, Aradeo is on a fertile area rich of ground water and this may be the reason why it has a good production of oil, wine and wheat flours to make excellent homemade pasta.Spending a holiday here is a good opportunity to taste genuine food.The historical centre is very little but accurately restored:the XVII cent. village ancient door, the XVIII cent.Virgin Mary church, the XVII cent. St. John’s column. Next to the historical architecture, there are also important modern works like the town-hall and the theatre, where all the most relevant cultural activities and social events of Aradeo take place: concerts, national performances, local carnivals. Summer is then the right period for enjoying the dolce vita: at night everywhere in Salento popular festivals called sagre,where everybody have fun tasting Salento food, drinking good wine and dancing the famous pizzica.
Flavours of Salento: Healthy Mediterranean Diet: The Salento Sunrise Home is only few steps from shops, bars, restaurants and all centre activities and five minutes of walking from the amazing countryside that surrounds Aradeo. With regard to this, guests are very welcome to use home-bicycles for nice excursions. During the day, they can sunbathe on the spacious roof-garden and at night, guests can enjoy the barbecue for a nice cook-out...and why not having a taste of some typical Mediterranean healthy food such as a delicious pignata di legumi? or joining a cooking lesson to make traditional homemade pasta (maccheroni, orecchiette, sagne'ncannulate or a yummy pizza)? Guests have also the great chance of buying organic produces, genuine olive oil, excellent wine, fresh vegetables and fruit or the sublime mozzarella and burrata directly from farmers in the colorful and lively Aradeo countryside, or in the suggestive market, which there takes place on Tuesday mornings.
