Offering both modern and rustic-style accommodations, Hotel Natura is located in Ruoti. A bus that stops 328 feet from the property takes you to Potenza in 20 minutes. The host couple was extremely accommodating, friendly, served us a wonderful dinner and breakfast and helped us with our limited Italian.
L' Antico Melo offers accommodations in Sarnelli, 9.9 mi from Potenza and 3.1 mi from Castel Lagopesole. The property is 13 mi from Venosa and features views of the mountain. It was all fascinating: the beautiful (sometimes rough and empty) landscape, the old towns, historical sites, the friendy people. This lovely house, in an easily accessible small village, is great to explore the region by car. It is also a quiet place to be on your own and relax, with good facilities and modern furniture. That week temperature was more than 30 degrees, but it remained comfortable. There was enough shade and (being above 900 m) it did no get too hot during the night. We drove to Lagopesole, Melfi, Venosa, Monte Vulture, Dolomiti Lucane and also to Craco and the badlands. Although it was very hot, we even visited the city of Matera. Communication (in English) went very well with Federica and her brother Luca. We met their helpful parents, who are living not far away.
