The Relais La Casa di Lucio was born in 2001. It is the result of a great restoration of old cave houses that were trasformed in elegant and comfortable rooms. The Relais is a perfect example of "scattered hotel", where the rooms are surrounded by courtyards, stairs and narrow streets.

There's plenty of reasons why you are going to love your stay at this "scattered hotel", made of rooms hosted by different parts of a large, typical Sassi house (the street is the hotel's corridor!). It's quiet, well furnished, elegant and cozy. But THE reason why my family and I loved the place was Michele, a mid-aged Italian gentleman who welcomes you in the breakfast room as if it were his home. He chooses gourmet cheeses and sausages in little local shops and advises you on great homemade cakes, commands a reasonable self-taught English and is always happy to help, amiable and discreet. He and his colleague Rosy were the extra touch that made our stay a charm. If you choose to visit La Casa di Lucio, bring him our regards!

We visited Relais La Casa di Lucio in late May of 2022. We loved this property. Our room of nicely appointed, and the bathroom was huge with a shower and tub that mirrored the ambiance of Matera (very large with stone sides and a sitting area). The hotel itself is in a great location - close to everything. My favorite part was the breakfasts. Of all of the places we stayed in Italy, this breakfast was the best. Miguele (may not be correct spelling) was the host. He was friendly and took the time to explain all of the various dishes on the buffet, many that we were not familiar with since they were unique to the region. He was helpful with all questions that we had, and he welcomed us every morning like we were old friends. His assistant, Rosie, was also very attentive and nice. We also had a wonderful guide, Anna, who provided a tour of Matera and explained its fascinating history and took us to many sites. All of the staff members of this hotel were professional and friendly. Loved this place!

Our stay at Casa Di Lucio was great. Our room was very pretty and it had the best bed out of all the places we have stayed at thus far on this Italy trip (6 other hotels). The staff is super friendly, especially Michele at the restaurant. He was super nice and friendly and went out of his way to help us at breakfast. I highly recommend this place if visiting Matera.

Wonderful location, close to the gorge, albeit hard to find on foot. We were rescued by the delightful Anna, who showed us to our room, situated in a courtyard beneath a huge jasmine. We were introduced to the ubiquitous Michele and shown to our well appointed room. At this point, it’s fair to say, we booked this hotel as it was cheaper than it’s contemporaries but, the room over delivers in size, comfort and facilities and is remarkable value. Anna gave us a great map with her recommended walking route which meant that, within a few hours, we felt we’d seen everything of import given we were only in Matera for 24 hours. A great night’s sleep, a walk down in to the gorge and Michele’s well documented breakfast beneath the jasmine, were just perfect. Happy days, yummy food!

Loved this hotel! Location was great, very unique cave rooms appropriate for the area. Michael was particularly helpful not only in preparing a lovely breakfast, but also helping me mail postcards to my grandchildren. Highly recommend!!

Exceptional hotel our room was spacious, clean , and a mix modern with some Matera charm. Breakfast were incredible with fresh choices daily plus scrambled eggs with pancetta plus fresh cut prosciutto, cheeses, and delicious breads. Service was excellent and Michela went out his way to make our experience wonderful. Highly recommend this as a place to stay.

Matera is an ancient city of cave rooms and this hotel is perfect for the setting. The rooms are modern but retain ancient cave elements. The breakfast by Michele is a magnificent and delicious spread of Materan dishes from an egg torte with pasta to proscuitto and various cheeses to local baked goods.

Great little hotel right in the middle of Matera but a bit off the main busy roads which means it is quiet and relaxing to stay there while exploring town during a few days. The room was like an old cave with a special bath tub you won't forget. Best part though was Michele at reception who took care of us as if we were part of his family (he also prepares the great and delicious breakfast with freshly cut ham, mozzarella, breads, yoghurts, etc). They also organized parking and transfer from and to there directly from the hotel. Recommend staying here if you visit Matera.

The best part of the hotel was Michele who was in charge of breakfast. He was so helpful and friendly!! He even taught us some Italian phrases. If you ever get a chance to stay at La Casa De Lucio, make sure you stop in and see Michele!
