La Casa di Ele is a really special place in a really special city. You will not regret staying in this delightful bed and breakfast – the rooms, the breakfasts and the hospitality is really exemplary. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. It feels truly unique with a wonderful atmosphere and you couldn't be better located for exploring both layers... More

My only regret is that we spent here just one night! Let's start from the beginning: we found this B&B thanks to some friends' advisors, and decided to book for one night, in order to see the Matera beauty and its famous Nativity Set representation. We made a call the day of our arrival and the host helped us finding... More

This B&B, housed in grandfather's old house, is a superb place to take in and breathe in the sights and sounds of Matera and the Sassi. Elegance and history abounds in the suites, care and loving attention to detail in the excellence of the breakfasts, and delight in pointing out places to see in the Sassi and around Matera flow...

We booked 2 nights at La Casa di Ele on the basis of the great reviews and were not disappointed. The family were so welcoming and helpful, the house beautiful and the breakfast outstanding. Would thoroughly recommend.

We can only agree with the other reviews. Firstly the town is amazing but to be able to view it from this wonderful B & B is magnificent. We stayed in the Bach Suite which offers a wonderful view over the Sassi without having to be down in the Sassi. The top of the Sassi was such a surprise as... More

We are victims of such a theft. But what a place to lose it. La Casa di Ele has been described in the many excellent reviews over 200 excellent leaves very little to say. We agree with so many of the reviewers on the Bach Suite where we stayed. Our kind hosts were so helpful and made enquiry as to... More

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
