Villa in oliveto sulla Gravina

Contrada Serra Sant'Angelo s.n.c. - 75100 Matera - Matera - Italy

Beautiful and comfortable ecological accommodation immersed in a century-old olive grove on the Murgia on the edge of the Gravina di Matera.

The private parking 10 meters from the house frees you from any worries about the car (ZTL, paid parking) and from the problems of transporting your suitcases. The Sassi are 3 km away (10 min by car or 30 on foot, bus 5 min).
It is ideal for visiting the city, returning home to rest and going back to the center for the visit and at the same time enjoying a wonderful place in an amazing nature and visiting the nearby beautiful rock complexes. We have 4 accommodations at your disposal:
Tramonto and Alba are two studio apartments with kitchenette, private bathroom and equipped outdoor area;
Alto is a two-room apartment with a beautiful equipped panoramic terrace
Villa and a 3 bedroom apartment a
Large living room/kitchen, 1 bathroom, garden, parking, no architectural barriers.
Ideal for trekking: San Nicola all'Ofra church, Grotta Pipistrelli and other rock complexes.
Perfect for enjoying a relaxing weekend in nature.
We will be happy to introduce you to the traditions, culinary specialties and typical products of which Basilicata is very rich.

The house is very comfortable and opens directly into the garden allowing you to enjoy the countryside, there is a table with chairs, an umbrella, deckchairs and a hammock. Outside there is a wood-burning oven and a barbecue.
For security reasons these can only be used in my presence.
The interior is cool in summer and is heated by a pellet stove with a visible flame in winter. Your pets can stay in the garden.

We also live in a part of this big house and are generally present. Our pleasure is to welcome you, to guide you in learning about our city and the surrounding area, to introduce you to our culinary specialties and our typical products of which Basilicata is very rich.

The villa is located in the Ofra district, a protected territory of the Regional Archaeological, Historical and Natural Park of the rock churches of Matera, adjacent to the city, which was traditionally intended as a "holiday" area and for "out-of-town" walks; even today this area is used by many Materans to walk and admire the Murgia and the Gravina.

The bus stop is in Piazza delle Costellazioni, 5 minutes away.
Taking a short walk you can see the rock complex of San Nicola all'Ofra or the Bat Cave.
If you want to reach the Sassi on foot it takes about 30 minutes to get to via Casalnuovo.
If you love trekking I recommend a full day excursion that starts from home, passes by the Grotta dei pipistrelli, runs along the ravine to the church of Cristo la Selva and after having forded the ravine takes you to the Saraceno Village. But then we have to go back.......

We are nature lovers, we grow a vegetable garden and take care of a chicken coop for the production of eggs and chickens kept outdoors. We have 2 dogs, 2 cats, and we can also accommodate your pets in the garden.
Our dogs are kept in a special separate space when we have guests.
For larger groups of guests who stay for several days, upon request, it is possible to organize dinners for the tasting of some typical dishes prepared by us in the wood oven, with particular terra cotta pans called "rizzola", or other preparations details.
Otherwise we will introduce you to a selection of the best high quality artisanal and local productions.
We also produce extra virgin olive oil which, due to the cultivation and milling technique, has a great fragrance and body and we produce wine for our consumption.
