Sextantio Le Grotte Della Civita
Magnificent, unique, luxurious hotel. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. I would not stay anywhere else in Matera. This hotel is fantastic.

Sextantio Le Grotte Della Civita
Cannot speak highly enough of this hotel. The friendliness of the staff, the otherworldly cavern room, the meal service, the fireplace at aperitifs, that view... The whole thing felt once in a lifetime.
Fraser, gb2 night romance trip
Sextantio Le Grotte Della Civita
Lovely place, fantastic location
Caves very atmospheric. Staff fantastic, extremely helpful. Gorgeous views. Despite heat caves remain cool, only dimly lit with lamps and candles. Beds very comfortable. We had 3 caves. One had bath in room plus a shower, the other two had a bath or shower. Breakfast included which was nice though not a lot of choice. You will struggle if not very mobile due to steps between levels and uneven cave floors.

BEAT HOTEL EXPERIENCE EVER! Living in a 5 star CAVE for two nights was unforgettable. Spiritual, Mysterious, historical. Wonderful service. Do this now before it gets too crowded but be aware that there is a lot of steep climbing.
