Tradition & Experience

Il Rifugio dei Galli – a beautiful country house situated on the smooth and green hills of Pisticci, a small and picturesque village in the region Basilicata in south Italy. We can host up to 11 persons divided in three different apartments in this carefully renovated villa. New for 2013 is a small villa situated about 50 m away, Tre Archi, where we can host another 4 persons.

This is the perfect place for short- or long term vacation in a peaceful environment with all the necessary equipment needed!

After some years away from my beloved “terra lucana” I found this house, in the end of 2008, in a beautiful part of the country side of Pisticci. It was full of empty bottles, maybe more than 10 000, but I did see a hidden beauty and the property caught my interest immediately. As if it wasn’t enough I found many other broken things, fridges, wash machines and more than 150 taps, 127 wheels and three beautiful roosters. The owner was only interested in the taps so we just had to start cleaning up and start the adventure and realization of “Il Rifugio dei Galli”.

Thanks to a careful and accurate restoration, finished summer 2011, the old house has been transformed into a modern but yet genuine holiday house with 4 charming and comfortable apartments. The rooms are spacious and furnished with a traditional style. And the name…originates from the first roosters that I found as the owners that winter day when entering the house for the first time.

This is the perfect place for short- or long term vacation in a peaceful environment with all the necessary equipment needed!
