The Guardian: Rustic Italy: places to stay for food lovers
Alastair Sawday, of Sawday’s guides, picks 15 places to stay where the food is as wonderful as the surroundings

Try talking to a group of Italian foodies about French food, and you quickly unearth enough tension to create an international incident. There is little love lost, which is strange and sad, for each country has vast culinary strengths, enough for the rest of us to stand in awe. I am one of the lucky ones who has been to Terra Madre (, the giant Italian Slow Food festival in Turin, and can vouch for the astonishing vitality in the world of artisanal food. The Slow Food movement began in Italy and has been responsible for rescuing threatened foods – such as Ligurian honey and Dominici apples – and beaten the drum for local and small - scale production.

The Times: Five of the top Italian farm stays
Italy: best local food is down on the farm

Five of the top Italian farm stays

[...] L’Orto di Lucania, Matera, Basilicata In the little-visited deep south in the “arch” of the boot of Italy, L’Orto (which means kitchen garden) grows artichokes, aubergines, tomat oes and peppers. Work up an appetite for dinner in the restaurant (or cook your own from farm produce) by cycling or walking to picturesque villages and archaeological sites.

The real Italy - Car and Driving
Jonathan Crouch takes to the Southern Italian roads of Basilicata and finds that here, there really is Latin spirit in every one You’ll probably never have heard of Basilicata, one of Italy’s southernmost regions. And that’s a good thing. At least for those of us wanting to keep hard-won discoveries to ourselves. Those wanting a break from the established tourist trail. Those wondering how the sun-dried states of Southern Europe used to be before package holidays, package food and package people. In Basilicata, armed only with a rental car and a sense of adventure, you’ll find out.
