Exploring Italy - Trip in Basilicata

Last Monday was a great holiday in Italy and we decided to take a trip. For a long time we intended to go to "Agriturismo" in Basilicata. "Agriturismo" is a restaurant-farm. They use their own products to cook and their dishes are very tasty! This restaurant is located in Rotondella in Basilicata, about 150 km from Brindisi. It is called "Bosco dei sapori" - Forest of Flavors, and it's a very right name! Everyting was delicious!

This is Rotondella - small antique town situated on the hill.


The view of Basilicata from the center of the town. Isn't it gorgeous?
After lunch we took a look around the farm.
(So cute)

This is a baby goat . It is only 4 hours old!!!

Sheepdog "Maremmano" - a famouse dog breed from Abruzzo. He is sleeping now.

So many cats))


In the forest nearby I found some mushrooms.

Beautiful post and lovely pics. You look so stylish!
We have a similar restaurant 10 minutes drive from where we live. They grow all their produce and there is even a cookery school. We pass it when we go to the sea and sometimes there are helicopters parked. Still waiting to recognize some Hollywood star there:)))
