My wife is very discerning, but no problems here. Cinzia is a brilliant hostess fluent in at least 4 languages (yes, I tested!) and conducts a marvellous establishment. Cuisine is local and produce largely from their own fields. The cottages/ apartments are in buildings across the gardens from the main house/ restaurant/ breakfast room and are all beautifully if simply...

An adventure to get to, but great to find a welcoming, hospitable, relaxing villa. The details are very nice, from the authentic southern italian feel of the rooms and dining areas, self contained private villas. We had an amazing stay the food was accurately chosen as the locals produce, from the various farmers around. A nice journey to Matera in...

L'Orto di Lucania far surpassed my high expectations. A warm welcome by the dynamic Cynzia was followed by a tour of this splendid property. The tour was followed by a delicious lunch prepared by Rosa, a talented chef and served by the highly competent and sweet Beatrice. The ingredients of the meal came, of course, from the premises and boasted...

We had been recommended "L'Orto" by our daughter who had stayed exactly a year earlier. Lovely place to be even in mid October. Fulvio was really helpful and friendly and Rosa the cook, from whom we had a pasta making lesson ( do ask for this it was fabulous!) produces lovely food. The olive harvest was just starting but we...

Perfect place to relax. The food is excellent, all organic food and I tasted the best parmigiana di zucca ever and not only. I strongly reccomend the place.

I had many meals at "L'Orto di Lucania" but when I finally decided to spend a night there, I found this place also offers a perfect accommodation. Apartments you can rent on a self-catering base are tastefully furnished and decorated, kitchen is perfectly equipped even if I and my family always had our meals at the restaurant. At "L'Orto di...
