“An amazing place to stay”
Reviewed 2 July 2012

This was a real find and Enzo was a great host - he went out of his way to make us welcome. He has worked so hard to make this accomodation a really comfortable stay. Just a pity there was no air con or we'd have stayed a second night...it was really hot.
Matera is a dream place and so worth the extra mileage. Take the time to wander around the caves and then drive to the other side of the gorge and take even more pictures.
Thank you Enzo and good luck with your dreams...a real treat in 4 weeks of seeing the sights of Italy

arrived at matera / sassi area, what a beautiful place ! even more amazing was the agora nei sassi accommodation. our host , enzo , was the most helpful and accommodating person we've ever met- showing us to a beautiful room/cave and later telling us about his passion for building a new restaurant that will soon be completed for his guests. i would very highly recommend this accommodation to any and everyone.the price was more than value for money and in a very good location.i wish there was more time that we could have spent there!! enzo if you are reading this ...good luck with the restaurant, keep making your dreams into reality and thanks so much for looking after us! cheers from helen and rob / australia.

Room Tip: we stayed on the ground level opposite the restaurant to be...lovely.

We arrived in Matera on a Satuday, by car, with no resevations. I really wanted to stay in a cave room in the Sassi, and we were lucky enough to discover this newly renovated B&B, which is located adjacent to Baccanti restaurant on Via Madonna della Virtu. The pictures on their web-site do not do justice to the facility. We stayed in a very romantic ground floor room with one huge wall and partial ceiling being carved into the limestone rock. This wall started behind the bed and curved up and over the bed like an amazing gigantic headboard . The lighting on this cave feature was truly stunning at night. The ceilings were rounded and featured exposed brick. The bathroom, with shower, was sparkling and new and everything worked well. The towels and linens were lovely and the bed very comfortable. No hint of dampness in this cave room either, due to some technique used in it's renovation. Our room had an adjoining room with a single bed and a 2nd ensuite bathroom which would work well for a couple travelling with another adult or a child. The location, on the edge of Sasso Caveoso, had wonderful views overlooking the archaeolgical park across the valley in one direction and back up over the Sassi in the other direction. Free parking within 100 or so meters, which is very unusual in the Sassi, was an added bonus. You can walk everywhere in the two Sassi's from this location and because it is on the edge and near the San Pietro church, you can always find your way home. Enzo, the proprietor, spoke good English, was very charming and went out of his way to help us. Enzo brought us fresh croissants and coffee and hot milk from a nearby bar for breakfast and we took our table and chairs outside and ate on the patio admiring the views. He is in the process of renovating another cave on his property were he will have his own little bar from which to serve breakfast. He also has a 3rd cave on the property which was a church, which he hopes to restore one day.The price was 70 euros a night but because we stayed 3 nights we got a special rate of 60 euros a night. The room and the host were an unexpected delight and the highlight stay of our 4 week Italian trip.
