We absolutely LOVED everything about Matera because it is SO unique. The scenery, the history, the room, the food, and especially the warm hearts of the people. Nobody exemplifies this as much as Domenico, our kind and helpful host of Fra i Sassi. Our taxi driver had no trouble locating our B&B. Upon arrival, we were captivated by the view... More

Materia is a beautiful place to be in, and the best way to complete the experience, is to stay in the sassi. Fra i Sassi definitely would not disappoint. Our room was spacious, clean and furnished with a big comfortable bed & other simple pieces. Gives you the feeling of living in a cave, but with your needs taken care... More

Matera is a magical place and Fra i Sassi is a magical place to stay and experience it. Nestled right in the sassi it is both ancient and wonderfully modern and comfortable. New bathrooms (nicer than mine at home), beautifully refurbished and furnished bedrooms. Mine had a window that looked across to the other side of the sassi so it... More

Loved our room - Room #1, the first room after entering the gate and coming up the stairs. It has a double bed with a white iron headboard, corner desk and a barrel vaulted stone ceiling - quite comfy! The bathroom is big, nicely renovated with double sinks, and steps up to a big, soaking tub/shower combination. Everything was very... More

My husband and I stayed in this cave hotel in Matera with our one year old son. The cave was very clean and modern. The balcony outside was the best part with great views of Matera. We found the staff to be very accommodating and friendly.

The B&B Fra in Sassi in Matera is on the hill slopes of the old part of town. (Sassi) The B&B is a small and very nice place with charming and helpful hosts. Every room is different, some with a arching ceiling, others more in a cave style inside the hill, but all with a view and direct access to... More

We stayed in this amazing B&B right in the centre of Sassi; the old city of Matera and felt like kings in a castle. The owner and her father are extremely welcoming, helping with everything you need. Breakfast is just how it should be... Loved the cherry cakes :) There s a nice terrace with an unobstructed view on the... More
