We spent a night here after visiting Laurenzana where my grandfather was born in 1885. Basilicata Province is beautiful. La Foresteria adds to the experience. Our hosts Pepino and Maria Josepha welcomed us warmly. Our large room had a terrific view of the Luccean Dolomiti mountains. Dinner was excellent local fare, much of which was from their garden. Nice breakfast... More

finding the place is not easy, its location on booking.com is, i think, inaccurate. people in the village bar gave conflicting directions as well. there are signs but not enough. the setting is really nice and the rooms very comfortable. evening meals have to be requested beforehand but its worth doing so. the meals are just wonderful. not a lot...

You could only find this place if you were seeking it out, and even then, you'd better have a good gps, because phones don't work. It is in the middle of nowhere, in the middle of nowhere. But once you find it, you will be richly rewarded. The facility itself is the former monastery for an ancient nearby church. The... More

Happened upon this beautiful place for a two night stay in July. It really couldn't have been any better. The room was pretty, well appointed and spotless, with stunning views. Adriana and her family could not have been more helpful. They made us feel completely welcome from the moment we arrived. The food was amazing - with salads fresh from... More

This was just perfect! The location in the mountains, (with good signing along the road), the nice room, the pool, the friendly and helpful staff and the food we had. I had read it´s earlier very good reviews and was afraid I might be disappointed due to high expectations, but they were all fullfilled! A perfect place for rest and... More

Somewhat off the tourist trail, this hotel is well worth the winding journey up through the hills. In short, this hotel was fantastic. The welcome was friendly, and (despite the owners' English being about as good as our Italian) the service was never less than friendly, attentive and helpful. Views from both the rooms and balcony are awesome. The location... More

Foresteria was recommended to us by My Bella Basilicata for a visit to family roots in southern Italy. Our visit was wonderful and the owners (Maria and Pep) are gracious and very welcoming. The accommodations and grounds are beautiful...the food is wonderful. Our family of five stayed four nights. We can recommend the cooking class as fun, too. Beautiful setting,... More

6 couples stayed here for 2 nights as part of a self arranged walkng holiday. We thought that this was one of the best places we have ever stayed. We had walked to it from Pietrapertosa which was challenging. Arriving hot and a little scratched from the undergrowth (our own fault of course) Maria and Peppino had delicious cakes and... More

Warm hospitality, great food, amazing location and most comfortable rooms. This is a unique hotel run by a lovely family. The journey up the slopes from the main road starts you wondering as to where you are going to end up. Keep calm and carry on ! English is not a main language here but Pepino's mother is a French...

We absolutely loved our stay at La Forresteria. We spent one night here and the staff was so warm and kind! We had a wonderful 4-course meal in the evening for a good price in a dining room that was so beautiful and genuine. We choose the superior room which was very beatiful and cosy, I don´t believe I have... More
