If you have never slept in a cave, or in an aristocrat palace of the eighteenth century, we offer you both possibilities.
In the heart of the historic Sassi in Matera (UNESCO world heritage), in a dominant and panoramic position rises from 1756 the Palazzo dei Abati, an ancient dwelling of the Chapter of the contiguous rock church of San Pietro Barisano, the largest in the city.
The heirs of the last abbot, who lived there until 1867, with a careful restoration work, have restored the ancient splendor of the structure, providing it with high levels of comfort and services, while respecting the uniqueness and originality of each of the five rooms: two in the cave, two built with decorated vaulted and one half excavated and half built.
From the delightful square of the church an important stone staircase leads to the large panoramic terrace with wide views of the Sassi and the massive Murgia plateau. From here, each room has independent access and is distinguished by a different history, style, ancient functions and typology.

A wonderfully appointed cave suite in a small hotel located in a great position. The staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. We wished we had stayed longer than 2 days.
The rooms are beautifully appointed, bathrooms are clean and modern with great water pressure. The location is wonderful with the most incredible views and at night it is magical.
