This is the most beautiful and hotel I have ever stayed in, a perfect, unique stay that I am so glad was part of my honeymoon trip. Everything about this hotel is wonderful - all of the furnishings are luxurious and smartly chosen, to give an authentic and incredibly relaxing atmosphere. The room we stayed in was so, so beautiful and I have never experienced such quiet. The bed was perhaps the most comfortable of any hotel I've stayed in. Reception set up a great value wine and food tasting for us in the 'church' which was lovely, and they are extremely helpful with niceties such as replenishing a pitcher of ice water for your room whenever you ask (grateful as Matera is baking hot) and a bowl of fruit on arrival. The breakfast spread was incredible.
All in all, we were totally impressed by this hotel, which I can't recommend enough, and I hope we'll be visiting again in the future!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Matera can be found in the south of Italy and is world famous because of its Sassi quarters, a stunning and well preserved example of a village where hundreds of caves were turned into dwellings, churches and palaces. A UNESCO World Heritage site since 1993, the Sassi represent a unique hamlet throughout Italy: the earliest inhabitants date back to the stone and bronze age, in the middle ages it boasted several monastic communities and later became a vibrant farming centre, owing to the rich harvests from the surrounding hills and plains. The Sextantio Le Grotte della Civita project is placed in the oldest part of the Sassi quarters, the CIVITA, facing the spectacular Murgia park and its rock-hewn churches. It comprises 18 rooms (some of them exceeding 160m²) and an ancient church, the "Cripta della Civita," now used as a common area, all renovated to retain their original features. The Sextantio Le Grotte della Civita project is situated in the historical heart of Matera. The 18 caves have been renovated in full respect of the local heritage. Each cave reveals the original shape and materials. The interior design, the respectful and minimalistic approach of Sextantio is reflected in the plain furniture elements. The guests will experience a particular atmosphere evoking the cultural and human history of the Sassi of Matera. ... more less
