TOUR EXPERIENCES OF BASILICATA SCROLL DOWN

AN ITALY UNDISTURBED

Italy is an amazing country but it is so much more than the classic, tourist packed places of Rome, Florence, Venice or Tuscany. It is here in the south where you can find 'Italia vera' (real Italy) and La Lucana gives you an opportunity to discover this more authentic side to Italy right here in Basilicata. Stay with our welcoming Italian family at our beautiful farmhouse, set in a protected nature reserve, and we will take you on an all inclusive journey through the food, culture, history and people of Matera and Basilicata. We can help you plan one of the most authentic, unique and special vacations you will ever have.

AUTHENTIC ITALIAN FOOD

Everyday, our 'Mamma', Marisa, treats our guests to an array of home-cooked Southern Italian specialities. You'll get to try a range of local dishes cooked using ingredients fresh from the farm and other local suppliers, as well as indulge in a plentiful supply of local wine.

FRESH PRODUCE

During a La Lucana experience, your taste buds will come alive as you sample some of the finest quality fruits and vegetables in Southern Italy. Our farm grows a range of delicious and fresh produce including, olives, aubergines (egg plants), oranges, cherries, watermelons and much, much more. At the end of September and throughout October you will even get to pick your own olives and visit the local olive press to see how olive oil is produced.

HOME COOKING

Using our fresh produce, Marisa cooks up some fantastic pastas, meat dishes and desserts that will leave you feeling full and happy.
