For a creative take on Mediterranean and Basilicatan classics, La Locanda's Il Sacello restaurant is hard to beat.

Expect the freshest and best local produce, including freshly caught fish and locally grown veggies.

The hotel's L'Alambicco bar serves light bites and cocktails in the gardens or pool terrace, with its views over the town.

A full buffet breakfast is served until 10:30am.

Room service
Available morning and evening.


The city of Maratea is a UNESCO world heritage site that begs exploration – not least for its 44 churches. Savour the stunning views on the 40 minute climb up to the medieval ruins and dazzling white, 21m high statue of Christ – it's well worth the effort!

Further afield, visit the pretty hilltop towns of Rivello, Nemoli and Lagonegro (20-30km), the wonderfully preserved Greek ruins of Paestum (108km), medieval Caracciolo Castle in Brienza (90km), the Roman ruins of Grumentum (70km), the Pollino national park and the famous charterhouses of Certosa di Padula (60km).

Sports easily arranged nearby include horse riding, trekking, mountain biking, sailing, paragliding, rafting or canoeing. There's also great diving and snorkelling. If simply bronzing is more your scene, just take the hotel’s shuttle bus to the beach and zone out.

You can book a range of massages here, such as back and shoulder, Californian and Malaysian Wave – just the thing to round off a tough day by the pool.

Diary Dates
Celebrate Maratea's patron saint at the Festa di San Biagio, with parades, fireworks and good food.

Maratea's Arts Festival and Film Festival ensure there's a feast of music, painting, poetry and film to enjoy.
