Farm house overview - owner's description
Imagine yourself sipping a cold drink down in beautiful, sunny, Southern Italy, in an area literally steeped in ancient history. You are ten minutes from beautiful open beaches on the Ionian Sea, less than an hour from mountains in a National Park where inexpensive skiing is available during the winter, and only five minutes drive from shopping in the nearest hilltop town. This is a place that can only really be described as a hidden gem, within an undiscovered area.
Easily reached from the UK and Europe via Bari, Brindisi or Lamezia Terme Airports, this converted 18th century farmhouse with A/C & plunge pool, sleeps 4 comfortably, and is thus ideal for families. Easily reached via Stanstead, Gatwick and Heathrow via BA, Alitalia, Ryanair, Easyjet & other airlines from across Europe. The house is very relaxing and peaceful. Included are a plunge pool, BBQ and air conditioning.
Historical area with habitation going back at least seven thousand years. There are many attractions locally including miles of empty beaches, water parks, mountains, and the entire area is steeped in ancient history including the Unesco World Heritage site at Matera only 30 minutes drive away, where people lived more than 5000 years BC.

Wow! I’d never heard of Basilicata before coming across the advert for Casa Tranquillo on Clickstay, but what a great experience in and around the region and in this authentic rural property, lost in the fig trees and orange groves outside Montalbano Jonico.
Dan and Justine are excellent hosts and, based just next door, are always available to give you all the advice and support you need to fully explore the area, from the cave dwellings of Matera and the promenade at Policoro, to the winter sport resorts at Monte Sirino and the hilltop village and castle at Rocco Imperiale, just over the border into Calabria. In addition, they can recommend restaurants and excellent Italian wines. Bear in mind that not much English is spoken in the region so a basic knowledge of Italian is useful if not completely essential.
The property has a lot of character, although it is also very well equipped. The bathroom is modern, the sun beds and the plunge pool are great touches. Staying here is a good reflection of rural life in Southern Italy, and the fascinating flora and fauna that comes with that (make sure you bring some insect repellent).
Overall, an excellent property in a lovely location, just waiting to help you rest and relax.
I’ll be back.
Peaceful, clean, friendly, visually stunning, very well equipped and maintained. I need not say more!
A very tranquil place to stay away from the tourist areas so we were able to experience the real Italy! The main bedroom was lovely and the air conditioning helped on really hot day. There was a good selec tion of equipment in the kitchen which meant we did eat in some nights. A fan in the downstairs lounge/bedroom would have been nice as some nights it was a little warm. The plunge pool was well used and it was lovely sitting under the vines reading, playing games and eating grapes.
This is a lovely place. Great welcome from Michael and Lorena who are currently looking after the property. Peaceful rural location - up a dirt track - you need a car. Nice to cool off in the pool. The surrounding area is beautiful. Lots of small hilltop towns to explore but also handy for the coast. Historical/archeological sites and not too far for shopping (Taranto and Matera) and restaurants (Policoro). Not too many Brits - so it helps to know a little Italian. We would definitely consider going there again.
Our second time at this property and still amazing Dan (owner) is excellent host, provides for all small details that make the difference and lots of local knowledge. An idyllic, peaceful location in rural Italy away from the crowds and tourist attractions.
We couldnt ask for more and cant recommend highly enough.
