The region of Basilicata lies in the "neck" of the boot in southern Italy. It is a region full of wonderful surprises, with a rich and inviting nature, splendid architecture and art history, friendly, but humble and hospitable people and of course lots of delicious food and wine! Basilicata overlooks the lush shores of the Ionian Sea, an area with a huge legacy of history and culture. You will find relics from great civilizations of the past here preserved in well-kept archaeological parks. This region offers a wide range of traditions and festivals, which over the centuries have been kept alive, plus a rich cuisine with authentic flavors and natural ingredients. This holiday park makes an excellent base for visiting the nearby cities of Matera, Metaponto and Bernalda with its imposing castle. Matera is an ancient city whose origins date back to prehistory. The city is best known for "Sassi", an area consisting of houses built partly in the caves of tufa, and known as the "underground city". This city is to this day considered one of the oldest in the world. Metaponto was founded by the Greeks in the middle of the seventh century BC and was one of the largest colonies of “Magna Graecia”. Her wealth was mainly composed of a large and fertile area, bounded by the rivers of Bradano and Basento, and famous for its cereals.
