A German couple sat next to me and we ended up talking about the town only to realize we were staying in the same B&B. It was great chatting with them and their two kids who were an eye candy. We eventually decided to hit the beach and relax together because why not.That walk to the beach and the soothing color of the water gave me goosebumps. It was lovely basking in the sun and relishing the sweet life. La Dolce Vita.After a couple of hours we went around the town to the Piazza for some people watching. A fresh fruit serving at Joya Canti di Stagione was enough to help us from the strong sun and gave us an appetite for a lunch of blue cheese pizza and a glass of the famous Puglian wine- Negroamaro. Bliss!
Later I went for an aperitivo (the Italians term for evening snack) at Bar Millenium – a popular place in the town next to the main piazza (square)
The owner, Gianni, was quick to revert to me with information about the town and his B&B. Staying in Grottone’s Attico for 3 nights was amazing. I had a huge terrace to myself, a small kitchen to cook in and a tastefully done bedroom.
