Il Cubo is a stylish and spacious loft for two tucked away in a courtyard in the historic center of Nardo.

Thank you for the kind words about Il Cubo. The little snacks - taralli - were baked right around the corner from the house - they are our favorite too. Nardò is a delight anytime of the year and we will look forward to your return. Buon viaggio!
