Masseria di Tempio is a agritourism hotel in the countryside of Metaponto in Basilicata. The  Agritourism Masseria  di Tempio offers understated elegance and incredible 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, the impressive and agritourism Masseria di Tempio 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. It has been a long time favourite of Long Travel clients.

Set on a thriving working farm of 250 hectares, at Masseria Di Tempio you can find grain, olives, vines, apricots, kiwi, peaches, citrus and other fruit are cultivated and guests can enjoythe farm’s own extra virgin olive oil, wine, honey, marmalade and fruit. The food is splendid and plentiful like a true country hotel here at the Masseria Di Tempio.

Renovated with superb taste, The Masseria Di Tempio is impressive, comfortable, relaxing, cool and elegant. As you go through the door, into a huge sitting area, you will feel as though you are in your own Italian home. Built from 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 of Metaponto, with comfy sofas and antique furniture, make a spectacular centre-piece and the perfect place to relax on your stay at the Masseria Di Tempio. The breakfast room/restaurant is very pleasant and doors lead to a courtyard and lawned areas, where guests may dine al fresco, in summer.

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 at the Masseria Di Tempio.Definitely top of the list for Long Travel for its incredible food.

Customer 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
