This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel cycling, luggage transported
  • stay in unforgettable Matera
  • truly remarkable accommodation
  • explore UNESCO World Heritage Sites


The little-known rural province of Basilicata, and Puglia (the ‘heel’ of Italy), combine stunningly beautiful landscapes with a rich, and often turbulent past, and some remarkable vernacular architecture.

Nothing prepared us for the amazing spectacle that is Matera - it really was like going back in time.

There is a noticeably slower rhythm to daily life here as you take in the charm and peacefulness of Italy’s ‘deep south’, on a break that offers a tantalising glimpse of both provinces and a real taste of the south – in an area famous for its olive groves, vineyards, almond groves, cherry orchards and pastureland, the cuisine is as rich and unforgettable as the landscapes you explore.

A key feature of this holiday is the truly unique accommodation: in Matera, your hotel is set in one of the town’s sassi, combining troglodyte cave dwellings (said to be among the oldest human settlements in Italy) with pathways, stairs and courtyards; while in Noci, your stunning hotel consists of a series of wonderful traditional conical stone dwellings, called trulli.
