Bringing you the flavors of Puglia through imported foods and olive oil, & exclusive getaways.

Puglia is a magical place. As the "heel" of Italy's boot,  a peninsula within a peninsula, it is a place where travelers must choose to go. Off the beaten path, trains traversing Italy North to South end their journey here, even the last cobblestones of the ancient Roman Via Appia are laid here.

Thick olive groves, rocky soils, and sea waters on three sides have created a land of unique culture, language, and history. Puglia harbors Italy's best olive oil, ancient vineyards, and some of the best culinary traditions Italy has to offer.  Italians are well acquainted with this "secret", but outside travelers rarely journey to this southern corner of Italy.

We are two sisters with family roots in Puglia. Our mother was born here and so was her mother and her mother. Our family's roots in Puglia are as deep as those of the centuries old olive trees. We have come to appreciate the many gifts Puglia has to offer - from food and wine to its ancient customs. Our mission is to share these with you, to bring you into the fold of Pugliese hospitality so that you too may experience the treasures of this ancient land.

Fabulous Friday - Extra virgin facial and body scrub

Le Sorelle

Many people complement us on our skin. They use words like “beautiful Mediterranean complexion,” or “perfectly smooth,” and mostly they just can’t believe how “old” we are! :) 

What’s our secret?

Olive oil, of course! And not just any. It has to be high quality with all those phenomenal polyphenals that fight oxidative stress in your cells! We were lucky to be raised with olive oil from Puglia, whose native varietals contain some of the highest quality and quantity of polyphenals in the world. 

Extra virgin olive oil, it turns out, is not just good for your insides, but for your outsides too. The ancients knew this. In Roman times, extra virgin olive oil was a highly coveted beauty treatment. The best part is that it still works!

Here is our recipe for a delicious, home-made extra virgin olive oil sugar scrub for your face and body. It works wonders. The EVOO protects and moisturizes the skin, while the lemon acts as a non-abrasive astringent. 



Juice from 1/2 fresh organic lemon

1/2 cup of organic granulated sugar

1 tbsp of Le Sorelle’s Adamo extra virgin olive oil

1 tbsp of organic honey

1 glass jar with a lid


Mix all ingredients together (add more sugar if you want a coarser scrub). Use to exfoliate and gently remove with warm water.
