This is our land: Lucania
An ancient legend suggests that the name “Lucania” derives from antiquity when a people headed towards the south area, found a land full of wood, for from which the Sun was rising; they called ‘Land of Light’.
Lucania, or also Basilicata, is situated between Calabria and Puglia, in the southern part of Italy and has two coasts: Ionian and Tyrrhenian.
The Ionian coast, with two known locations in Metaponto and Policoro, offers wide sandy beaches, in some stretches surrounded by pine forests and eucalyptus rows. The Gulf of Policastro, on the Tyrrhenian side, has a high and jagged coastline, where the promontories overhanging the sea are interspersed with small beaches lapped by a crystal clear sea.
You do not visit Basilicata by chance, but you choose to stay in this land just to live a different experience, immersed in places where silence, colors, scents and flavors lead away from the frustration and the stress of modern life, giving you such unique feelings.
The forests that cover the mountains are dotted with small and picturesque villages above 1000 meters of altitude, where pure air, genuine flavors and nature’s beauties combine historical testimonies to satisfy every desire for knowledge.
Gorgeous, yet still unexplored, it is the Monticchio and Monte Vulture lakes area, surrounded by dense and lush vegetation, is considered one of the most spectacular areas of Italy.
