Between Puglia and Basilicata

Borgo Valle Rita

Welcome to Borgo Valle Rita, a country resort surrounded by green, at 72 meters above sea level, inside a biological farm that stretches over 100 hectares of land. Inside the ancient Farmhouse Girifalco, where you can still breathe the past of the ancient fiefs of XIV century, you will discover with pleasure the warmth of the Lunati family that, with passion and dedication, has animated the restructuring of the rural buildings, in full respect of their authenticity and of this history, giving birth to Rita Valley, from the name of the torrent that crosses the property.
