Much more than a holiday destination, Gargano is an all sensory experience: the green uniquely shaped olive trees, the sweet citrusy smell in the air, the dough of homemade orecchiette, the ruby red of ripe tomatoes, the rhythm of a beating tammorra, a glass of wine accompanied by taralli and the many stories told by the locals. You can experience all this first hand at Il Giardino Hotel. Through authentic experiences we will help you discover the true essence of Gargano, one made of stories, encounters, flavours and emotions which make the best of memories.
