Found Agriturismo L’assiolo online when planning our trip from Australia, really fell in love with it. When we arrived we were very half heartedly greeted, told where to park the RV and not much more. Nothing about the restaurant, what was available to us, or what water was ok for drinking, we were told the pool chairs had to be booked- but they were full for the following day. It was 6pm and we went for a 10 minute dip and were charged 10euro each for the pleasure when checking out. I feel that the camper parking is very much an out of sight out of mind part of the business which is a shame because we were willing to really spend some cash eating and drinking there.

We stayed here three nights as a base to explore Basilicata. The farm is by a lake and feels remote. In one direction you can see in the distance the lights of modern day Matera and in the other a hill on which the beautiful village of Miglionico is built. The farm house is surrounded by orchards and olive groves. The warmth of the family makes this a special place to stay. Breakfast and dinner was home cooked food at its best - cucina povera in the evening: small dishes of plant based food very well flavoured. Lots of good local wine served from a jug. The daughter of the family is fluent in English. The other members don’t speak much English but it didn’t seem to matter. I would stay here again.

This Agriturismo is the best ever. The property is beautiful ,you can walk down to the lake, take in the beauty of the olive trees and the farm. Visit the donkeys and Jack the horse. The rooms are spacious, very clean and comfortable. But truly the real gem is the people! Francisco,Marissa,Sylvia and Greg could not have been nicer or more accommodating. They were so much fun to spend time with. I traveled with a small group tour - Vitalia tours with Katherine it was wonderful

Stayed here six nights nights. Lovely place and friendly and warm owners. Our room was large with a refrigerator, stove and sink, although why you would want to use them because the food is delicious and plentiful. Pietro, Silvia and Greg took us sightseeing to the beautiful nearby towns. At L'Assiolo we enjoyed pasta making and olive oil tasting as well as mozzarella and various cheesea demonstration. Loved the local entertainment the last night.

Let me begin by saying the grounds are breathtaking. A quick 10-15 drive from Matera situated near a protected lake area where locals come to rest near greener pastures not found in the city of Matera. This agriturismo is a welcoming compliment to any visit made to Matera. As much as I loved the city of Matera carved in stone and all its wonders I longed for a change of scenery....something more green and less grey for a day. What I got on this Sunday afternoon was a 5 hour feast of home cooked meals and friendly service. The meal started around 1pm and we left after 6pm, it is a whole day affair. We have family in Matera and I am traveling with a wife and 2 small children (5 & 3). There were 9 of us in total and there was no shortage of local dishes being offered throughout the day. They served up an antipasto course that spanned 5-7 dishes and lasted over. Taking your time to enjoy everything is paramount to enjoying your experience. No one is in a hurry and all courses are spanned out very well. After the antipasto courses there were 2 more pasta dishes, meat and salad course followed by fruit, desert and coffee. I also forgot to mention that each table had ample wine and that all dishes were locals sourced and traditional in nature. Between courses I walked around the grounds with my children which was a treat as I needed to stretch and the walk allowed me to make room for more food. The grounds included stable which housed donkeys, sheep and chickens. The children spent some time feeding donkeys hay which was an added treat. I was a visitor to this local gem and was treated like family and ate Italian soul food to my hearts content. I will post some photos from my cell phone however a lot are on my slr which will have to wait until I return to Canada. I will return with friends on my next visit to Matera.
