Casa Firenze is a property for sale in Basilicata, close to the long sand beaches of the Ionian coast with a lot of potential. It’s a spacious country house composed of more than 100 m2 situated with the beautiful village Pisticci just above on the neighboring hill and in the other direction one can admire the high mountains of the National park Il Pollino. The view is very beautiful and the nature is spectacular on this side of the hills of Pisticci.
The house is completely made of old stones and one could transform it into a lovely genuine country house with all modern equipement needed. As of today it’s in need of renovation as part of it is destroyed. However, as 100 m2 has existed there is no problem to enlarge it into the original size. The plot of land consist of 2500 m2 and is full of old and beautiful olive trees as well as some orange- and fiches trees. Here one will also find a private well full of water that can be used for the garden.
The big size of the property at this low price is very uncommon in these parts and this a really good occasion to purchase a property with a lovely view and a private olive groove!
Pisticci is a picturesque coastal village beloning to the province of Matera. It has 17.828 inhabitants and is situated 364 metres over the sealevel. This is a village with a long history and is situated in the middle of the Valle del Basento and Cavone, spreading over three Calanchive (gully/ravines) hills not many kilometres from the Jonic Coast.
Pisticci’s has a long history starting when the Enotri arrived here during the Iron Age (IX century BC). It was a centre in contact with the Greek culture of Metaponto, enabling many cultural influences. Thanks to this, in the V century BC, it resulted in pottery production in Attic style which had its maximum exponent in the so called “Pittore di Pisticci” (Pisticci Artist); probably an artist who had emigrated from Greece. The castle found below Pisticci originates from the High Medieval period when it was s Byzantine centre. At that time Basilican monks arrived, who had escaped from iconoclastic persecution operating in the east.
The village has been shaped by the nature and over the centuries the terrain where the village lay gave way to landslides. The one during 1688 was terrible and caused partial demolition of the ancient district of Terravecchia. Pisticci is characteristic for its white houses and you can find everything you need in the village, e.g. several restaurants, bars, pharmacies, banks, schools etc. People are known to be very friendly and hospitable. A common and popular activity in the evening is to stroll along the Corso Margherita and you will find a large part of the inhabitants here about to drink an espresso or maybe to eat an ice cream at the popular bars.
