Southern Italy region

Basilicata is the unknown treasure of southern Italy. In this one spot it comes down to the sea on wild and beautiful Costa di Maratea. History and excursions - The rugged shoreline is dotted with C15th watchtowers against the Saracen pirates and the ruins of hill top villages, abandoned once the Saracen threat was gone.

We are in easy day trip distance from Pompeii, Herculaneum and the Riace bronzes in Reggio Calabaria. Paestum, the Cistercian monastery at Padula and Diamante are half-day visits and vast national parks stretches into the mountainous interior to both the north and south.


Along our bit of coast there are rocky inlets and beaches, picturesque fishing ports and hill towns and lots of pasta and sea food eating, coffee drinking, ice cream eating dolce vita. Our local town, Maratea, has lovely shops and cafes if you get sick of staring at our view and browsing through the library, floating in the pool or staring at the blue, blue sky.

you can dive or hire a boat but snorkaling is just as rewarding as the water is increadably clear.

"Unique, beautiful and never to be forgotten."

If you love Italy you will adore Maratea, a port and a hill town which seems to have been created from an opera scene. If, like us, you also like to share these enjoyments with friends and family you … More
