José Manuel Fajardo
Spanish Writer
José Manuel Fajardo, a worldwide known Spanish writer, is a very dear friend. He officially thanks us in his novel A PEDIR DE BOCA devoting many words of praise to Chiaraluce, as he found the right atmosphere to finish the novel when he was our guest. He also thanks Claudia Anastasi , Roberta and Elio’s daughter, who revealed him the secret of her tiramisù. Our recipes have inspired him and they are part of his novel.

The House

Source of Inspiration

The intimate country house lies on a gentle hill that slips into the sea, from where and you can enjoy spectacular sunrises and sunsets. All around oak trees and olive trees provide shade in summer days and den to a family of squirrels, our neighbours.

A lake below helps to generate pleasant emotions of freshness.

Karla Suárez
Cuban writer
The Cuban writer Karla Suárez thanks Roberta and Elio in the novel LA VIAJERA, and we are very proud to be close to such a great person. We know Karla very well, we appreciate her qualities and her intellectual honesty. Her novels are disarming for sincerity. Slices of life on which she suspends any judgment, allowing the reader to give his own interpretation. We wish her luck.


Source of Charm

We love this place: the earth smells of aromatic herbs, the warmth of the sun and the clean sky caress these hills as far as the Adriatic Sea and our house enjoys all this peace.

Everything is an invitation to authenticity, contemplation, kindness, happiness, and meditation.

Michele, Gianluca e Gaia
We were lucky enough to spend 3 weeks in this beautiful place. We have been back home for 24 hours and we already miss the excellent cuisine of Roberta, Elio’s entertainment and the unique atmosphere that accompanied our evenings. Our little Gaia, nearly three, enjoyed it a lot. We recommend Chiaraluce to anyone interested in a relaxing holiday in a family atmosphere.

Duilio e Sonia
Wonderful farmhouse with a unique landscape, surrounded by beautiful hills and at few steps from the sea. The rooms,with all the facilities, are well kept and really clean. The real pearl of the place is the cuisine: simple ingredients combined in an original way. Every evening a different menu offers light dishes with unforgettable refinement and delicacy. A special thanks to the owners Roberta and Elio who, with their professionalism and humanity, are able to guess the tastes of the customers and anticipate their needs.


Art & Gourmet

Our food is bread for the hungry soul. The ingredients speak for themselves and tell their own ancient story. The personal relationship we have with our customers are the basis of a communication made of textures, saviours, smells and tastes.

Eating means reading a story devoted to those who savour the food cooked with heart and interpreting the mind of diner. Drinking is an intriguing and wise combination.

Pascal and Cindy
We had a great time, the casa has a wonderful view over the mountains and the sea. Roberta, Elio, la nonna and Claudia are the best. You can ask them everything, nothing was too much. They do their best to entertain the guests and organize different evenings on which they serve special meals accompanied by music and dance. Roberta is a wonderful cook and speaks very good English. We advise to stay in half board.


Rates 2017

We stayed for 2 weeks and had a sunny, wonderful & relaxing time! The room with terrace was perfect with a boy of 2 years old, the room was simple but comfortable and cleaned every day, fresh towels each day. A big wardrobe with a lot of storage room. We enjoyed the lovely swimming pool with a stunning panoramic view, sea at the horizon. Nice garden, all well maintained. Bee-eaters at the entrance. We had half pension and we did not regret it: the food and wine were really delicious! thanks to Roberta & Elio - our charming hosts
