We just came back from a trip in Matera. Having already visited the town twice, this time we decided to stay at a B&B. After searching the web, we chose "Alla Dolce Vita". And a wise choice it was. Vincenzo and Carla, the young couple who owns the place, were extremely helpful even before we got there. They e-mailed us the road map to the residence, answered all our mails immediately and made the reservation without asking for a credit card.
The apartment we stayed in (No 50) is big and tastefully decorated. It has a large room with a single bed and a dining table with four chairs, as well as other piece of furniture. The double bed is on a mezzanine, also furnished with well chosen old time furniture such as a wooden trunk. The kitchen is big and fully equipped with everything a housewife might need. We prefer eating "at home" and the big fridge was a great plus for us. Since there are a lot of great local shops in walking distance, one can visit the panificio (bakery), the salumeria (for cheese and sausages) the open-air fruit market or the supermarket and buy all that is needed for a great lunch.
Breakfast is served on the little 1st floor balcony and consists of the famous pane di Matera and homemade jams or cakes made by the always smiling Carla.
And Vincenzo is always ready to help, advise, propose and make everything easy for the guests.
We hope to stay there again in the future and highly recommend "Alla Dolve Vita" to everyone who wants a memorable stay in Matera. Carla and Vincenzo, thank you for everything!
