Live a stay in a sweet and timeless quiet


“I opened a French door, looked out onto a balcony with a crumbling eighteenth-century iron railing and, coming from the shadow of the interior, I was almost blinded by the sudden dazzling whiteness. Below me was the ravine; in front, without anything getting in the way, the infinite expanse of arid clays, without a sign of human life, undulating in the sun as far as the eye can see, to where, far away, they seemed to melt into the white sky “

(From the book Christ stopped at Eboli by Carlo Levi)

The Lunar Landscape Guest House was born from Nicola’s ten-year experience

The guest house Il Paesaggio Lunare was born from Nicola’s decades of experience in the tourism and wellness sector, having opened 4 km from the hotel the Piscina Club Relax, an ideal place to spend delicious days of well-being and relaxation. Together with his mother, Irma, his sister Brigida and his father, GiuseppeNicola will welcome you with grace and professionalism in the rooms furnished with elements of tradition combined with shabby chic style, where elegance and romance reign.

An aura that makes the rooms intimate and familiar environments

The guest house Il Passaggio Lunare is located in the ancient village of Aliano, a town located on a clayey and steep spur, at 498 meters above sea level overlooking the Val d’Agri and its stream. The oldest part of the village is formed by houses built with raw clay bricks, surrounded by olive plantations and peach and citrus groves, better known as the “Gardens of Aliano”. Immersed in these evocative scenarios, the writer Carlo Levi, who was confined to Aliano during the fascist period, wrote his book “Christ stopped at Eboli”. In the village are still intact all the places described in the novel and in the alleys are imprinted some symbolic phrases of the book and to him are named a Museum and a Literary Park.

The guest house Il Paesaggio Lunare is today the only structure in the oldest and most evocative part of the country, in the wide Piazza Garibaldi, from which unfolds a tangle of narrow streets that widen towards the panorama of the gullies. A few meters away is the legendary “House with Eyes”, an ancient building whose façade looks like a human face that hides apotropaic functions to drive away the evil eye.

IL Paesaggio Lunare is located in a historic building, which, while retaining the peculiarities and charm of the past, has been recently renovated and equipped with all the comforts of contemporary living, combining care for the existing with a taste of refined furnishings and finishes.

Choose the Il Paesaggio Lunare guest house to immerse yourself in a unique landscape where clay, olive trees and gullies kidnap the soul and gazes.

In these landscapes of the soul we recognize the authenticity of a peasant and pastoral tradition never erased, in an intimate and genuine enveloping silence that bursts into us. At the same time, however, especially in the summer months, you find yourself wrapped in the festive atmosphere typical of Aliano and, in particular, typical of the paesology festival, “The moon and the gullies”, which for years has been taking place right around the building that houses the structure and that every year sees artists of great caliber perform, such as Rocco Papaleo and Michele Placido.

moreover, it is located in an ideal position to reach Matera; the abandoned village of Craco and the magnificent beaches of the Ionian Sea.

Insieme alla madre, Irma, alla sorella Brigida e al padre, Giuseppe, Nicola vi accoglierà con  garbo e professionalità nelle camere arredate con elementi della tradizioni combinati allo stile shabby chic, dove regnano l’eleganza e il romanticismo. Un’aure che rende le stanze ambienti intimi e familiari. Tutto questo è stato possibile grazie ad una scelta attenta di materiali, colori e arredi. Infatti l’arredo de Il Paesaggio Lunare è ricercato in ogni singolo particolare e nulla è stato lasciato al caso. Mobili con graffiature, crepature, segni del tempo e volutamente anticati per esaltare la patina del tempo.

L’affittacamere  Il Paesaggio Lunare è dotato di parcheggi presenti intorno a piazza Garibaldi ed è servito da tutti i servizi necessari  (pizzeria, farmacia, alimentari, sportello posta e postamat, colonnina di ricarica elettrica per auto e bici,  ecc…)
