Lovely old convent setting views across the gorge river. We had accommodation across a small courtyard. It had an ensuite bedroom and a sitting room cost €80 for 2 persons with breakfast, It was basic bright and clean, we dont like modern hotels. Staff were polite and English spoken at reception our Italian is very rusty now. We stayed here on recommendation of a restaurant where we had lunch. Matera is beautiful to just look round stunning views from everywhere. everyone turns out in the cool of early evening for a stroll before dinner. We visited the sassi and gorge.
