    What can I say about this hotel? All I can say is that I had a once-in-a-lifetime-experience. It was unreal and it cannot be explained how it was. You have to stay to experience. We were lucky to be upgraded to suite and it was just sooooo amazing to stay in that suite. Facility was just amazing and you cannot find any better staff than those guys at the facility I met. I will recommend this place to anyone who will go to Matera. And Matera was unreal, also.

    A beautiful hotel with very attentive staff in the very heart of Matera. The staff were able to explain the history of the hotel and the company straight away while showing us round and demonstrated everything we needed to know in our room. The room was everything we could hope for and more.

    Stunning Grounds, Attentive Staff, Amazing food.

    From the valet service on the way in to welcome refreshments, local friendly & knowledgeable staff, amazing local cuisine for breakfast and our parting is such sweet sorrow departure this experience was magical and stunning. The property is immaculately cared for and staff will attend to your every need. The restored grounds and cave rooms are amazing and hands down one of the best sleeps of our 3 week voyage. The surrounding area is walkable and the views/ setting amazing. they offer a private dining experience and in room massage which we did not utilize. We would not hesitate to go back just for that. Matera has just been awarded European Capital of Culture for 2019 and for good reason. This was easily one of the more unique, magical and true local experiences we had. We could not recommend this hotel more. Don't hesitate to book. If you are a focaccia bread fan their focaccia for breakfast could be hands down the best I've had in the world. Local meats and cheeses amazing as well.

    Superb Sextantio

    This is our second trip. Sextantio is fantastic. Everything about it is done well, tastefully, and respects it’s surroundings. Fabulous. Even the grapes hanging outside our sassi(cave) smelled intoxicating. The view immediately outside of La Murgia is immense and thought provoking. They upgraded us to an executive suite from a superior - thank you for being so thoughtful. Sextantio is Matera.

    One unique and enjoyable night

    This property was so unique and enjoyable. The service was great. One night was definitely the right amount. The room was very neat but ran warm and wasn’t highly comfortable.
