Nicola is very useful giving us all the information we needed on what to visit. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone. Matera is amazing!

Potenza is a town worth to visit, especially the old town, good to reach by town-specific escalators. Liana is a very kind and attentive host, who provided us with lots of information about the region, the places of interest and things to do there. Itś absolutely a fine place to stay.

It took me a while to find the place because I copied the map from the webpage (that is wrong)... I was calling the owners for 30 min and no answer (bad reception) so I start driving and asking the houses around the place and eventually I reach the house. The owners were there and they made us feel like in our own house. This property is divided in two so we met our neighbours the next day. In any case we got the biggest part of the house, two bedrooms and two bathrooms plus kitchen. We spent 6 days travelling everyday to the beach (20 min away) and Matera (1 hour away). In any case the location of the house is like in a farm, very quite, but we got tv and internet that made my son and me happy. I fully recommend the place.
