Very nice B&B with the most beautifull view of Matera. Loved it! We stayed two nights and it was great. Everything is on walk distance and the breakfast is great! Sleep here if you are going to Matera. You will not regret.

We stayed two nights at this great B&B, enjoying the warm hospitality of our host, Valentina. She was informative and helpful in every way and she also prepared fabulous breakfasts which included home-made specialties of the area. The B&B has a lovely garden and terraces from which you have a wonderful view of the caves and the town. The view... More

Her homemade breakfasts using all sorts of local produce were absolutely delicious and a real highlight of our stay. There can be no better view of Matera from your terrace or... More

The room was comfortable, plainly decorated and average size. I think compared to other places we stayed it was a bit overpriced.No air conditioning.

This was an excellent B&B to stay at. It had the best views and a well kept garden. There is parking along a lower street and then you have to walk some way as the street that the B&B is on is too narrow for vehicles. Mario and his daughter Valentina made you feel very welcome. Lovely Valentina made a... More

Torrent a ai Sassi was the perfect choice, ideally located to start our walking tour. By day and night the views were amazing. Mario and his daughter Valentina were so warm and welcoming.

The location is perfect, wonderful views of the old town. Valentine is a star - she obviously loves Matera and wants you to have the best experiences.. She booked up a visit to The crypt of original sin which should not be missed. As others have mentioned the Torretta is a rare star! Go visit!
