I stayed four nights in La Corte dei Pastori in November 2014. The cave hotel room far exceeded my expectations and I would recommend this B&B over any other lodging in Matera. There are only 3 rooms in the B&B and one other under construction that promises to be the best of all. Our "cave" was huge with two double... More

The weather changed suddenly from fairly warm to cold when I arrived in Matera. I promptly got sick and Domenico was so nice adjusting the heat in the room and tea. The room I had was right next to the breakfast/lobby area and was small, but not uncomfortably so. It was no shoebox, but might be a little cramped if... More

We stayed at BB La Corte dei pastori for 4 days and had a wonderful time. Our room was one on the ground floor and small kitchen and extra sofa. Despite the interior is built in "cave" style, we didn't feel humidity at all for the whole time. We really splurged with the generous breakfast, while sitting on the terrace... More

As everyone else has said Domenico and his wife are great hosts. They both went above and beyond for the 2 nights we spent in the cave. The room is a real treat to experience, very comfortable and super clean. Location is very good. They provided good tips on free parking and restaurants also. Would love to stay there again.

We had a wonderful relaxing time at this B&B. The room is beautifully restored, comfortable and cozy. Location and view are amazing. Lovely and helpful hostess who made us feel welcome and recommended great restaurants and things to do. The city is completely different from any other I've ever been and it certainly deserves a visit.

I think everything I want to say about this lovely little place has been covered (particularly, and very well, by AnnCS below). So I just want to say I agree completely but also that the owners are two of the loveliest people you could hope to meet and it just goes to show that you can communicate very well with... More

This B&B has a perfect view and a central location. It's aldo possible to drive and drop off bags near the room with free parking a 5 minute walk away. The breakfast was delicious and the couple running the place so nice and helpful.

We found our stay here breathtaking, what a WOW factor. The views from our window were beyond belief, like being on a film set.Our room was delightful and comfortable and our hostess charming.The sassi was a spectacular place to explore. This was definitely one of our favourite places to stay while on a 1,500 mile cycling trip round Italy.I would... More

So many great things to say about this place that I hardly know where to start. The B&B directly, and I do mean DIRECTLY overlooks the Piazza San Pietro Caveoso which, in turn, overlooks the sassi of Matera. When you have a cup of coffee or glass of wine on your patio you will have one of the most amazing... More

I stayed at BB La Corte dei Pastori in June 2014 and highly recommend it without hesitation. The owners, have done a great job restoring this sasso into a boutique B&B. The location and rooms are the highlight of this B&B. The location is enviable- it offers beautiful views of the murge and is a short walk to the city... More
