We were looking forward to a long weekend in Puglia. Our Italien friends have also suggested a day in Matera. The city is unbelievable. And this hotel is probably one of the best places we have experienced. Families lived in these caves since 13th century,...More
A beautifully restored hotel sympathetic to its amazing history and with bedrooms housed in old cave homes and the breakfast room in an old deconsecrated church this is a hotel that is sure to stand out from the crowd and stick in the mind.
We stayed for two nights and it was the most wonderful start to our little trip to Puglia. We were in room 10, a suite with 3 caves, one just had a bath in it, and view down the gorge. The whole place is natural...More

Lighting is kept deliberately low to be as close as possible to original. There are LED lights as well. I would't really say lighting can be much of an issue. Baths are also modern in spite of their (beautiful) rural appearance. Ours was equipped with a spray attachment. January will be probably pretty cold. Just make sure to bring something warm with you...and enjoy this wonderful leap in the past
