Clean and comfortable, with good provision for self catering. We had temperatures well over 30 degrees every day but the house was cool and there are lots of lovely shady lounging areas in the garden. The views of the olive groves are beautiful and we enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere, watching the sunset from our upstairs terrace and the sky at night.
The roads are quiet, the nearest shops and small town is a short drive away and there are lots of hill towns to explore. There are lots of long sandy beaches within easy reach. Matera is a 45 minute drive away. Great base for exploring Basilicata.
The property is well situated with all local amenities, small local supermarket, resteraunts, cafe/tabaconist, close at hand. The proppery is spacious, clean and well appointed, with off road parking as well. As the property is on the outskirts of Matera it has the benifit of being in easy reach of the local main roads, if you like us want to explore more of the Basilicata area as well as the town of Matera, we also experienced no noise, from these roads. The property is as we have stated is on the outskirts of Matera and a good 20 mins walk from the historic town centre, however we found a good amount of public parking close to the sassi and town centre, mainly using an underground attended car park costing €0.50hr. All in all we enjoyed our stay in Matera, Basillicata, and the flat. Ged and Carey Anne Proctor.
