Looking for beautiful accomodations, lovely owners, delicious and abundant breakfast plus the most incredible view of Matera? Well, you will find all of the above at La Corte dei Pastori. We spent three nights in the wonderful Grotta room and honestly we wished we had stayed longer. So very comfortable down in the sassi in the magical city of Matera!

I was so looking forward to visiting the UNESCO site of Matera! I couldn't wait to see this town built out of stone caves and experience sleeping and eating in a cave and I was not disappointed! I would recommend to everyone to come here once in their lifetime to experience it! Incredible! Words can't describe what the eye can...

We stayed 2 nights at la Corte Dei Pastori. The hosts were fantastic. Mimmo and Tiziana made us feel very welcome and were able to offer a lot of excellent local knowledge about Matera. The rooms are spacious, clean and quiet. The breakfast was very good and includes local produce including locally made jams and marmalades. They offered excellent advice...

For our 25th anniversary, we wanted to find someplace out-of-the-way, but accessible which included going underground. This place is a perfect score on all three counts, plus our hosts were extraordinarily friendly and helpful! Sassi di Matera is a UNESCO world heritage site, and is only going to get more notoriety as they have been selected as their site of...

If you’re visiting Matera, you’ve got to experience a stay in the cave and take in the great view of the Sassi. And that is exactly what we did at this amazing B&B. We stayed at the upstair room with the window overlooking the church and the Sassi. I can't say enough about the breakfast. The pistachio butter on croissant...

We couldn't have stayed at a better location! The views from the window are stunning! The owners mimmo and wife are such warm and genuinely kind people, they even drove us to the parking lot outside old town to show us where to leave car overnight. It's easily the BEST breakfast we had in out stay Italy. The views from...

I found this place on Trip Advisor and I'm very pleased we stayed there. It was in a great location in the Sassi. Our room was upstairs on the front with a little terrace. This room and the one below were the bigger rooms and worth asking for. The hostess was lovely but there is very little English spoken. Breakfast...

This place is unique carved into a rock. Amazing B/B overlooking the Piazza San Pietro, very central , slept in a cave room, the view is spectacular ,breakfast was served on the terrace by the welcoming and friendly owner. As the B/Bis in the middle of the old Matera easy to walk around and do excursions. We parked our car...

Location is excellent, view is wonderful and breakfast was reasonable. Family run business that is in the process of building 2 more suites. They try hard. Great if you speak Italian. Difficult to find. Young lad was left in charge and didn't know anything. Access to sassi is restricted so very difficult to gain access by car. Parking is on...

We agree with all the excellent reviews. We stayed in the comfortable Campanile room with an excellent view across the Piazza San Pietro to the valley with the caves beyond. The location is about a 10-minute walk into the old town proper and, as a result, is probably a quieter place to stay than in the main part of the...
