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.
