Description
Sextantio Le Grotte della Civita in the Sassi di Matera - UNESCO World Heritage Site in Basilicata region - is the most extreme expression of a Historical Minor Heritage. A heritage, which ...More represents the almost paradigmatic expression of this Minor History, marked by rocky caves, inhabited until the first years of the fifties. The sassi (stone settlement) have been turned into 18 romantic boutique bedrooms, simply furnished, candlelit and calming. Sextantio Le Grotte della Civita is a cultural project born to bring hospitality experience outside the schematics, not classifiable as "stars" and far from any traditional concept of luxury, so much so that the New York Times deemed it one of “the most extraordinary destinations in the world”, the Times “one of the ten most beautiful hotels on the international scene” and the Tatler guide of Condé Nast has included among “the one hundred most beautiful hotels on the planet”. They talk about the luxury of emotions. Less

Location is in old part of the city. Walking distance to sights. One of a kind hotel. Only for couples. Romantic. Lit by candles. A must stay while in Matera. Walking distance from Main Piazza. Breakfast served in Old chapel of monesary.

No. In fact they don’t really have a restaurant but offer an exclusive candlelight dinner for only one couple at a time.

Dear Alex, the nearest airport is Bari International Airport, only 40 minutes drive from Matera. You can rent a car or the hotel can arrange a private transfer. Ciao ciao
