Beautifully restored Sassi house. Great welcome from the owner who gave excellent suggestions for places to visit. The house is right in the heart of the Sassi. Open plan kitchen/ dining/ sitting area with mezzanine bedroom above. Lovely modern shower room with beautiful towels. Highly recommended.
A family of four with (2 grown children) stayed 2 nights in late December 2017. Guiseppe the owner is energetic and accommodating. He was good with information before and on arrival. He even catered to our needs of printing out our boarding passes for our return flight. The apartment is small'ish but big enough for the four of us. The apartment consists of a loft, a fold out bed a kitchen and bathroom. They have done a good job at transforming the space into a nice little lodging. The breakfast was set aside for us for our two days and consisted of juice, croissants and yogurt and coffee. Overall the breakfast was typical for an italian breakfast and we were happy to have coffee. The location is good as it is about 5 minutes from the edge of the Sassi and you can take in all the sights. Guiseppe is very good about explaining the major sights and a few places to get lunch or dinner. Overall, found it to be a good lodging for the price point and accommodating for four persons. The parking is a bit interesting and it is best just to park your car and walk to all the parts you want to see. Guiseppe was kind enough to provide his spot along the street adjacent to the apartment.
Overall - Would recommend and would stay again.
Booking the apartment was easy, as Guiseppe was always quick to answer emails and enquiries. Matera was a new destination for us and great experience right upon arrival with Guiseppe's heartwarming reception. He provided the typical bread of the region to try, as well as bottled water, coffee, marmelade etc. and made us feel very welcome. He cares about his guests and the property and is proud of the wonderful town and rich history of Matera. The owners are always available and easy to reach.
The home is exactly as represented in the photos: stylish, cosy and very clean and it has all one could possibly wish for: a great location in the Sassi, at walking distance from the centre, comfortable beds, a nice kitchen, air conditioning, wifi etc. We loved every minute of our stay and will not forget this magical place which we enjoyed so much. Thank you very much for an unforgettable time in Matera!
