Describe your accommodation
The house is located in the heart of the Sassi di Matera. An ideal place to relax while enjoying the beauty of an ancient building a stone’s throw from the city center and all services. Immersing yourself in the Sassi means forgetting the noises of the city and living a unique experience. The rooms are large and furnished with creativity and care, the common room is a perfect place to enjoy a cup of tea, read a good book or connect with the world. The house also includes a patio furnished with plants and tables. From here it is possible to move on foot to reach the various services in the city, to get lost in the Sassi, the historic districts that have made Matera famous all over the world and to explore the Murgia, a wonderful natural park close to the city where it is possible access independently (access is about ten minutes walk from home) or with a hiking guide.
The furniture was created paying maximum attention to the environment: the furniture is almost completely made up of reused objects or local crafts, the systems have been designed to obtain maximum energy efficiency, LED lights, class A appliances and the condensing boiler allow us to reduce our impact on the environment. We ask our guests to pay the utmost attention in the use of resources such as water, electricity or gas, to respect separate collection and to minimize waste, especially plastic and unsorted waste.
At home you will also find shopping bags for your shopping and jars to buy loose products.
The house consists of two large well-spaced rooms and a common area. Throughout the house there are high vaulted ceilings and natural terracotta flooring. Each room has a private bathroom and sofa bed.
The common room consists of a large table and spaces in which to sit and relax.
From spring it is possible to enjoy the outdoor space for an even more unforgettable experience.
The house is at the complete disposal of the guests, it may happen that I or a trusted person may need to cross the common area to access the laundry, in which case the guests will be notified in advance. The washing machine is not available to guests but you can take advantage of a coin-operated laundry not far from home. The price of the stay includes room cleaning once a week and change of towels and sheets on request.
The Sassi are the ancient districts that have made Matera famous all over the world. Immersed in a millenary history, the buildings carry unique details that make these places special. The house is immersed in the Sassi but also very close to bars, restaurants, supermarkets, pharmacies and various services.
