Spend you holiday on a farm in the countryside around Matera. Use the farmstead as a base while travelling around the Basilicata area and to visit the nearby sights like the Sassi of Matera, trulli in Alberobello and lovely beaches in Metaponto. Some of the farm houses that you will find below are in historic masserie, typical to the area, others modern farms that grow fruit and vegetables. Most produce their own cheese: mozzarella, ricotta and caciocavallo, they make jams and preserves, and often cure their own ham and meat.
