    We are looking for a place to rent for a week in Trivigno.
    We see many places in Potenze to buy, a few to rent, but nothing in Trivigno.
    Can you help us?
    We would like to get to know the area before we decide to purchase a home.

    Is there a hotel? a Pensione?

    Please send any helpful suggestions to me soon as we plan to travel in June.
