La Casa di Ele B&B is a real jewel in the amazing town of Matera. The B&B is located on the edge of the Sassi and affords great views over this fascinating old town. The rooms in this renovate historic house are comfortable, well appointed, with lots of lovely details (like beautiful soap dishes). Giuseppe and Tina were the perfect... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and had the Superior room since the other recommended room was booked. This is in the Sassi so you can not drive or park a car in this area, a bit of an issue but we were by moto so they stored our veh at their apt. The room faces the side street about... More

It's hard to say more than the other reviewers have said. It is the perfect B&B in the perfect small city of Matera (really, it is an amazing town!) This place was literally a palace at one point and the Bach Suite retains its glory. The view from the room was stunning, right over the sassi. Pictures don't do it... More

The family was excellent. They are a cultured and musical family. Tina's breakfasts were culinary feasts. Raphaele recommended an excellent guide, Alessio for a wonderful tour. Our room was spacious and well furnished. The location was very central with nearby parking. A must!

I can only echo all of the praise for this wonderful B & B. The location is perfect and our room was large and comfortable. As others have said breakfast is a delight! But what we appreciated most were our charming hosts Tina and Giuseppe -- every breakfast was a pleasure with good food and great conversation. Even though language... More

We stayed in the Summer 2013, and it was a wonderful experience. We have traveled extensively in Europe (and Italy in particular). La Casa di Ele is in a prime position, with spectacular views over the old city. Our room was lovely-- both large and clean, with incredibly high ceilings and a balcony. Above and beyond the lovely space, I... More

Our trip to Matera was a magical one. Everyone we met there were genuinely nice except for the girl who works for tourist information in Vittorio Veneto Square. We were very touched by what our host, Raffaele, has done for us. First, our luggage were lost in the Bari Airport, he not only called the airport to help us find... More

We really enjoyed our stay here in La Casa! The view from our Bach suite was truly amazing. Our hosts, Raffaele together with his father were really warm and friendly! We were also very grateful when Raffaele helped us with our luggages. He also showed us where to park our car for free which wasn't too far away. The breakfast... More

We followed the advice of previous reviewers and stayed in what is called the Luxury Bach suite, and were not disappointed. We were fortunate to meet not only Raffaele, but also his parents, and truly enjoyed speaking with each of them. I won't repeat what others have already written - the breakfast, the cleanliness, the hospitality, the location - all... More

I looked forward to getting back to this space at the end of each magical day in Matera. The balcony, tasteful renovation and spaciousness is all to enjoy. You won't believe the hospitality and warmth of your hosts. The spread for your breakfast will make your jaw drop - beautiful and delicious. Tina and Giuseppe are fun, engaging and share... More
