Make Sure You…
Explore the rich history and culture of surrounding Matera and the Murgia National Park. You can rent either a city or a mountain bike from the hotel, which will give you the freedom to discover the dramatic landscapes and winding streets of the surrounding area.
We often advise couples who are celebrating their honeymoon or a special anniversary to stay at Le Grotte Della Civita – I can’t think of anywhere more romantic. The hotel’s rock-hewn deconsecrated church, first carved out in the thirteenth century, makes an atmospheric setting for a very special candlelit dinner. You will be served exquisite local cuisine as you watch the warm flicker of flames from the fireplace, accompanied by classical music.
A Family Adventure
Durrell Wildlife Camp – Jersey, the Channel Islands
Set in 32 acres of rolling Jersey countryside, the Durrell Wildlife Park is home to around 120 species of exotic animals, including bears, orang-utans and gorillas. Its five-star Wildlife Camp gives you the opportunity to stay at the heart of this animal oasis in a state-of-the-art glamping pod. This is ‘glamorous camping’, indeed!
Each pod features electricity points and Wifi, enabling your phone-loving kids to send all their pictures straight away to jealous friends, as well as a woodburning stove – perfect for keeping you toasty warm even during a winter visit. A modern kitchen, al fresco dining table and separate pod with a fully-flushing toilet and shower will ensure that even the most camping-phobic among your party will be able to appreciate modern comforts.
