San Larenzu, Restaurant in Aullène and Deli - Bed and Breakfast
Six guest rooms and a restaurant offering slow-cooked dishes based on Corsican meats; kid goat, lamb, veal, as well as wild pork and charcuterie, all sourced from Laurent and Antoinette's farm, nestled under the chestnut trees of this Alta Rocca village.
Traditional Corsican Cuisine
Opened in 2018, the San Larenzu restaurant has quickly become an essential destination in Alta Rocca. Its Corsican cuisine and authentic charcuterie beckon for a return visit. Laurent and Antoinette maintain their own pig farm and a small poultry farm, to offer traditional dishes inspired by family recipes.
The guest rooms and restaurant are open from the Easter holidays to the All Saints' holidays, 7 days a week, with lunch and dinner service assured.
Discover a variety of slow-cooked dishes such as kid goat, lamb, wild pork stew, veal sauté, as well as veal tongue and tripe. These culinary delights are inherited from Laurent's mother. The menu also offers options such as flank steak and rib-eye steak.
Local produce and ancestral recipes make up the secret to irresistibly delicious cuisine. The meat comes directly from the region, including Corsican veal, and the charcuterie is from Laurent's own production, who raises approximately 200 pigs and 58 cattle, in addition to a few goats, his primary vocation. Cheese, honey, and chestnuts are also supplied by micro-region producers, just like the lamb and kid goat.
Through their restaurant, Laurent and Antoinette aim to introduce you to the fruits of their labor as well as the authentic flavors of the local terroir, in a warm setting dedicated to sharing and conviviality.

San Larenzu Produce
The daily specials showcase Laurent's produce. It's impossible to overlook San Larenzu charcuterie, pork terrines, slices of coppa, lonzu, sausages, and prisuttu as a perfect way to start your meal. The dance of flavors continues with slow-cooked dishes: village chestnut pork stew, beans with figatellu and sausage, milk-fed pig in sauce, pork roast with potato gratin, homemade veal tripe, and wood-fired grilled meat (except in summer). The menu changes daily, featuring perennial favorites that are truly worth the detour.
Garden Vegetables and Fresh Eggs
The family-run restaurant uses produce from their own garden: leeks, chard, onions, parsley, celery, zucchinis, homemade fries and potatoes, strawberries, and other freshly picked fruits and vegetables.
Passionate about their craft, Laurent and Antoinette have a chicken coop with about thirty hens, ensuring a supply of fresh eggs every day.

San Larenzu Charcuterie - Porcu Nustrale Breeding
Laurent Henry grew up in an agricultural environment, with a father who raised cattle and pigs and passed down a wealth of knowledge. After an agricultural internship in Sartène, he launched his own business in September 2001 through a direct setup in the village of Aullène, in the Alta Rocca region.
The farm is comprised of approximately 200 heads of Corsican breed pigs - Porcu Nustrale. The pigs thrive in an ideal environment that spans acres of forest and chestnut groves.
It's worth noting that Laurent also owns 30 nursing cows, horses, and donkeys.
Between 80 and 100 pigs are slaughtered each year for the charcuterie, starting at the end of autumn. The figatellu is produced from December to the end of February. Other traditional preserved meats include coppa, lonzu, sausage, prisuttu, and panzetta.
You will also find, in winter, head cheese to eat fresh. San Larenzu charcuterie also makes pork cheek, as well as lard.
Direct Sale of Charcuterie and Corsican Product Store
Since 2018, Laurent and his wife Antoinette have opened their restaurant, where the charcuterie served is also available for direct sale. The charcuterie is primarily served in the restaurant and sold directly, but cannot be sold by mail order as the farm does not produce enough.
