Make a holiday rental home or villa in Basilicata, Italy your home away from home

The Basilicata region is hugely diverse, with extinct volcanoes in the mountains giving way to rolling green hills, and evergreen forests hiding turquoise waters lapping on white sandy beaches. Self-catering beach villas make for an excellent summer destination for families, while Basilicata cottages in the mountains provide couples with a romantic and secluded getaway.

Potenza is also home to the Provincial Archaeological Museum of Potenza, which provides a wide selection of artefacts from the different eras of the region, and makes for a great distraction when the weather is no so great.

There are also several places in which visitors can view remains from the area’s Greek occupation, such as Metaponto. The small town contains temples, basilicas and a museum detailing the Greek history of the area. Metaponto also has a beautiful 1km white sandy beach which gets quite busy in the summer months.

Soggiorno a Potenza

4 of 5
Piacevole soggiorno nella "casa dei fiori" . Monolocale molto accogliente e confortevole, curato nei minimi particolari. Padrona di casa gentile, premurosa e disponibile. Da consigliare.

In the heart of the Sassi

5 of 5
This apartment is really an amazing place. It is in the heart of the Sassi. The apartment has been fully modernised to a high standard. You enter via a lovely courtyard. The lower level is a kitchen diner. A mezzanine floor above contains a large bed and ensuite. The apartment is just minutes walk from the shops and restaurants. The owner ( Sandro) was a wonderful host. He met us in the new town and found us a safe street to leave our car. We could have used secure car park if we had wished. Sandro then took us and our luggage into the Sassi. Matera is magical at night and staying in the heart of the Sassi is a must to capture the atmosphere of the place. The only impovement we can suggest is that a toaster would have been useful. We loved Matera and this apartment in it
