There is a saying among travellers that you'd never eat where you sleep. Whatever the origin of this saying is, it is certainly not true for relais il mignano, via lata 29 in Nardo, Puglia.
The hotel is a typical town palazzo in beautiful medieval Nardo (we selected Nardo as our base for trips to the Salento countryside both at the Ionian sea and at the Adriatric sea.the palace has big quiet rooms and a wealth of small terraces all over the place to collect each ray of sunshine (which was, we must admit, absent during our stay. This couldn't be helped by il mignano, of course) but, the idea that we could have sat there with a fresh cappucino or a glass of delicious Apulion red wine, was some consolation. Internet was strong and everywhere. So we spent many hours in the book lined salotto; a joy in itself.
The restaurant wasgood with a lot of fresh fish and seafood. Like many restaurants it offered a selection of antipasti (5 in total, which gives an element of pleasant surprise and which will do as a whole meal.we only have one advice for all restaurant owners who have this sample on their menus: please halve the orginal quantities of the antipasti in order to prevent a too early total satisfaction.
Very good wine; wecompletely fell in love with Apulian reds: negroamaro, malvasia, nero di Troia: sweet memories
