Rooms in a boutique masseria, understated elegance and incredible food. Michael loves Masseria Di Tempio’s architecture, the pool, the food!

In the heart of Magna Graecia and near Metaponto’s temple, Matera, Taranto, the Pollino National Park and even Francis Ford Coppola’s home town of Bernalda, about 6km away, this impressive and elegant masseria is also close to lovely, sandy beaches, two good golf courses, and is only about 10km from the border with Puglia. It is an ideal location for golfers, sightseers or simply for those wanting a relaxing holiday.

Set on a thriving working farm of 250 hectares, grain, olives, vines, apricots, kiwi, peaches, citrus and other fruit are cultivated and guests can enjoy (and buy) the farm’s own extra virgin olive oil, wine, honey, marmalade and fruit.

Owned by two brothers, who are busy with the day-to-day running of the farm, the masseria has been left in the tender care of Caterina and Mimma, who clearly adore it and give guests a warm and smiling welcome. Rocco is usually on hand too to give guests advice about the area and to make your stay even more special.

Renovated with superb taste, this is an impressive masseria – comfortable, cool and elegant. As you go through the door, into a huge sitting area, you will be impressed. One of two former “granaio ” or grain stores, its proportions are immense. The brick barrel-vaulted ceiling, stone floors, enormous fireplace and large arched windows, which give delightful views over the hills, with comfy sofas and antique furniture, make a spectacular centre-piece. The breakfast room/restaurant is very pleasant and doors lead to a courtyard and lawned areas, where guests may dine al fresco, in summer.

To eat at Masseria Di Tempio is to experience the very best in great cooking. The cuisine is based on traditional, Basilicatan home-cooking, using some of the very ancient Lucanian recipes and every mouthful is an explosion of taste. The food is truly incredible and you will be welcome to pop into the kitchen to ask Rosa, the chef, to share her culinary secrets with you. Vincenzo, your smiling waiter, will look after you, as if you are part of his family.

Our rooms are off the large sitting room and all are charming and characterful. The three first floor rooms are very spacious, with antique furnishings, delightful shower rooms and large terraces, with views over a tiled roof, to the countryside. The four ground floor rooms are similar in size and style, but have small gardens – although these have no views, they feel more private.

A short walk over lawns brings you to a beautiful pool and shaded gazebo. On an elevated lawned terrace, surrounded by olive trees and with lovely views, this is the ideal spot to relax.

This place has real style!

Review

“What can we say! The food at Masseria di Tempio was fantastic and abundant – in fact, after a good breakfast we made sure we didn’t eat until evening, as we would never have managed all the courses.” Kenneth, Linda, Graham & Gemma, Southport

“Masseria di Tempio is a lovely place in a wonderful old building…we had a fabulous room with a very large terrace. Both dinners were absolutely fantastic (some of the best food that we have ever eaten, and very original).” Michael & Josephine, London

“Our room and terrace were both larger than expected and very nice. The evening meals were excellent.” John & Evelyn, Pinner

“Masseria Di Tempio was terrific – staff friendly, food excellent. ” Colin & Vivienne, Ipswich

“Friendly, spotlessly clean, good food and plenty of it. Beautiful grounds and swimming pool.” Brian & Jackie, Farnham

“A relaxing, peaceful holiday in a quiet corner of Basilicata. Delicious food, fantastic pool and a very warm welcome.” Lynn & Tony, Cambridge

“We both found di Tempio a superb place. The setting was wonderful with fantastic views all around & our room and balcony – both huge – were very impressive with incredible views.” Andrew & Sheila, Milton Keynes

“All the places where we stayed were remarkable but the star of the whole holiday was Masseria di Tempio. What a stunning place! The reception area fairly took our breath away.” Linda, Southport
