Planning our trip: Naples-Basilicata-Calabria & back

I am sure there are people out there who has names of nice, good-value B&B's or Guesthouse/Family-type Hotel, I would be very happy to hear from you. On our first day we will drive to Potenza, then on to Cosenza, Tropea, Siderno, Soverato, Rossano, Pisticci or matera and back to Naples.

We have about 14 days and would like to recce the area before going househunting. We will stay about 2 days at each place, not ideal but trying to cover as much as we can. Any ideas about our itenerary, diabolical or not? If you have stayed somewhere (reasonably priced) and thought their names worth passing on, kindly let me know, will be most grateful. Thanks All!!

I hope this is not too late for you but there is a lovely family in Belmonte Calabro, near the pretty town of Amantea, Cosenza, who have just built some luxury apartments near the marina and are currently letting them out on a self-catering basis. The tariff is very reasonable for May, June, September and October but the area tends to get very busy in July and August as this is a very popular holiday destination for the northern Italians and Neapolitans during those months. During the low season, though, it is possible to have a stretch of beach to yourself and it is very relaxing.

They have an English translation on their website, which you can check out at www.curciosrl.it, which gives further details about the apartments, the location and surrounding area, as well as local places of interest.

We have stayed in Belmonte for the past three years but in different accommodation because these apartments were still being built but we found it ideally placed for exploring the coastline and other places in Calabria, as well as being only about 45 mins. from the airport. Can't wait to go back again!

Hope this helps.
