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

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
