Le Dodici Lune is in a great location uphill from the roadway through town. Three of us arrived without reservations and were provided a huge, cavernous room on the top level for our stay. The staff were friendly and accommodating, the rates reasonable. Had a nice conversation with one of the caretakers who seemed to really like working here. Great to have a small kitchen and dining area - we prepared a few of our own meals here - and equipped with two bathrooms, a real luxury. Very quiet at night. We parked in the small area on the road below nearby, lucky to find a free space.
Wi-fi was spotty, best in the lower level. The view of the caves across the river was magnificent, and the lights at night made the area feel even more magical. The terrace outside our room was perfect for relaxing, reading, writing, sipping wine or drinking coffee. We walked a lot throughout the town, enjoyed our evening stroll with the locals on the other side of the town, and felt very safe walking back late at night. We ate dinner one night at the restaurant and the food was excellent, the continental breakfast typical, good.
The weather was very warm and perfect for late October. Sunscreen and insect repellant are recommended, especially if you are sensitive. We especially like the peacefulness of low season for tourists. Le Dodici Lune is a lovely place, beautiful accommodations in a beautiful town, a wonderful place to stay in Matera!
