Very special place...both this hotel and Matera. Our cave was lit by candles, sweet spot, well done. Breakfast was lovely. This hotel is one working with government to help tourism in Matera. Hired a guide and toured all day.
We loved our stay here! What an amazing property--they have done a great job preserving the grounds. The simplicity of design and lighting makes the place feel magical. The staff arranged a private tour with Renato Favilli that was great! What a jewel of a...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.
