“What a welcome”
Reviewed July 6, 2011

We stayed here for one night on our way down to Puglia. Peppino welcomed us with a drink and some homemade cake. We were later arriving than we anticipated due to roadworks but this was not a problem, everyone was so friendly.. Our room was immaculate with a view over the hills and the silence was amazing. Our evening meal was a joy, we had antipasto (which we didn't know we were getting), followed by pasta then meat and salad and finally cake, accompanied by a bottle (or two!) of the house red - delicious! After a great night's sleep in a really comfortable bed we had a great breakfast and a proper cappucino. Our only regret was that we didn't arrive early enough to enjoy the property, especially the pool, and only stayed for one night. For a friendly welcome, beautiful surroundings and great food - stay here!

La Foresteria sits in the hills overlooking the Basento River Valley and the Dolomiti Lucane only 20 minutes south of Potenza. Being just minutes from the E847 you have good access to the Ionian Coast, Matera, Melfi and all that Basilicata has to offer. Just relaxing or taking walks in the hills is also an option.

The rooms are well laid out and can accommodate couples or families, some have kitchenettes. The couple who own La Foresteria are always available to help plan your day's activities and provide wonderful dinners in the the charmingly restored building.
