The space
If you wish to spend some time in a pleasant house located in a small town in the South of Italy, then you must come to Montescaglioso!! A town rich in history and traditions and only 20 km. from the city of Matera, a Unesco World Heritage Site, famous for its 'Sassi' and for having been the location for Mel Gibson's film "The Passion".
Molinello House is situated on the outskirts of the town surrounded by the countryside and by its own garden where you can find a variety of flowers and trees: pink bougainvillea, bushes of orange flowers, palm trees, cactus plants and many more! The guest room with bathroom is totally independent, fully furnished with air conditioning , overlooking the garden and it comfortably fits two people. The entrance is located on the side of the house amid fruit trees and a vineyard. In fact, stepping out of the room, you are faced by a vineyard rich with luscious grapes in September; a fig tree with delicious figs in July-August and a beautiful apple tree with apples in Autumn. A ten minute walk will take you to town where you can visit The Benedictine Abbey dating back to the year 1000 A.D. and see many old churches located in the historical part of the town.
Apart from Matera, Montescaglioso is also close to Metaponto Beach (about 20 mins. by car) on the Ionian Coast. An area very rich in history where you can see relics dating back to 4 or 5 centuries B.C. when Metaponto was an ancient Greek Colony.
On warm days breakfast will be served under the porch, on the patio overlooking the garden and on colder days inside the 'tavernetta.
Paying a little extra, on a daily basis, you can become part of the family and enjoy typical, delicious local Montese dishes at lunchtime!! You will find no language barrier, as the host, having lived 18 years in London, speaks perfect British English. If you choose to come by car, you will have no parking problems as there is lots of space where you can park your car freely!!

I love socializing and meeting people from different parts of the world! Speaking English makes it even easier as it is a language spoken by people from many different countries..I love reading novels and I love cooking especially local dishes.. Whenever I have guests staying at my house, I always do my best to make them feel comfortable and part of the (Website hidden by Airbnb) fact they love coming back and they enjoy my cooking!! I chose to become part of the Airbnb family because it will give me the possibility to meet new people and help them to discover the beauties which exist in the South of Italy especially in the Basilicata Region..
