I spent two nights at La Dimora di Metello in October and can't recommend it highly enough. Beautifully located in the Sassi - the historic center of Matera - close to bars and restaurants, this small boutique hotel features just 4 rooms, each of them beautiful, with all modern comforts and stunning views. The hotel has a small spa and a fantastic breakfast is served in the main reception area. Staff is absolutely kind and professional.

There are only four rooms in this sweet little hotel that is carved out of the rock in the Sassi, the oldest part of the city. Our double room, called 'Eumenia', was the first leading off the corridor from the hotel foyer. It was spacious, stylishly decorated, very quiet and comfortable. It opened onto a paved terrace outside, with a larger terrace nearby where guests could sit and enjoy a drink while taking in the view. A surprisingly inclusion in the hotel, given its size, was a spa where one-hour massages could be booked for 60 euros. Buffet breakfasts were served in the hotel's small foyer and were a little on the lean side as there wasn't a huge choice of savoury options. The hotel is a short walk from the nearby city shuttle bus stop, which runs to and from the Sassi to the modern part of Matera and the large council-run, undercover carpark (Va Saragat) where you can leave your car.

Matera is a city lost in time however La Dimora di Metello is a hotel up with the times. We found the attention to detail from the rooms to the breakfast second to none. Our breakfasts were enjoyed on the private terrace overlooking the Sassi which was another enchanting element of staying in the heart of the Sasso Barisano. Elizabetta was a wealth of knowledge with tours, dinner suggestions and general information on navigating our way around this maze. If you're looking to experience a cave stay whilst in Matera then La Dimora di Metello is a must!

A wonderful combination of the old and the new directly in the „Sassi“ of Matera. They have a very personal service, a staggering view from the terrace all day long. And after all the sightseeing in Matera it was a wonderful place to come back.

My husband and I were fortunate to stay at LaDimora di Metello in May, 2019. Elisabetta, the owner, provided excellent communication during our Matera/Basilicata trip planning, and we were greeted with her warm heart and enthusiasm for her native city upon our arrival. After working for over 15 years in the hotel industry , she had a dream to open her own unique hotel. Elisabetta and her husband decided to purchase and renovate several of Matera’s caves, preserving not only the nuances of the caves (such as artifact seashells embedded in the walls of the hotel hallway) but also providing modern conveniences and amenities to their guests. Good things come to those who wait! After 8 years of hard work, her dream was fulfilled and we were excited to stay in our sasso room named Eumenia. Attention to detail was everywhere -- our immaculate guest room had spacious ceilings –we appreciated there was no mold and no mustiness, which can often accompany this type of setting. The tall modern glass patio doors with linen curtains opened onto our stone balcony, where we could experience magical Matera both in the daytime and at night. . Our bed was comfortable and dressed with high quality expensive bed linens and fluffy pillows. The contemporary bathroom with rain shower experience was enhanced with luxury toiletries. Our room included a contemporary small couch and Italian leather chair beside a sleek counter space which included a coffee maker and refrigerator. There was plenty of space for hanging clothes, and storing our luggage. Flat screen TV and wi-fi were provided. Elisabetta and her staff did not allow us to leave hungry from her hotel – we enjoyed an egg entrée, regional cold cuts and cheeses, homemade tortes, bread, pastries, yogurt and fresh fruit every morning. In addition, fresh juices and several hot beverages including espresso/ cappuccino accompanied the beautifully displayed food each morning. We were excited to try different kinds of taralli from Matera and treats such as scorzetta from neighboring Bernalda. With only 3 full days in Matera, we didn’t have a chance to try La Dimora’s spa – compete with massage, special showers and a hot tub all enclosed within the mini cave complex, but be sure to do so if you can. This hotel is an absolute hidden gem in Matera. It only has a few rooms, so book in advance. What is special about La Dimora is the care and love which Elisabetta provides to her guests. She helped with maps, directions, and restaurant recommendations. We were delighted to meet.her wonderful daughter and members of her staff each day. Grazie mille, Elisabetta for all the wonderful memories you provided for us. So happy to see your dream come true after all of your hard work!! Some recommendations: If you are travelling with a car, trust Elisabetta to arrange parking for your car. You can walk from the parking ramp or dropoff to the hotel can be pre-arranged if you have luggage. We drove from Bari to Matera via Bitonto and Altamura. In Bitonto see the Cathedral (especially the mosaic griffin) and be sure to purchase some focaccia at Forno Caesaro. We walked to a family store/home called Bocconutto for its regional pastry. In Altamura visit the bakery Jesu with its old oven fired with olive wood and special bread. We drove to Matera’s Belvedere/lookout point to see the sassi from a distance before we parked our car and then could see all of Matera by foot. Visit Casa Noha for a multimedia explanation of history of Matera over the centuries and don’t forget the giftshop with handmade local items. Then be sure to see all the ancient sassi churches and walk through the labyrinth of Matera’s streets. Matera is still rebuilding itself. Named a UNESCO site, this is one of the oldest cities in the world and we were amazed at how an abandoned city has come back to life in a few short years by the determination and passion of the Materan people. La Dimora is perfectly located, so it is easy to walk to see all the ancient sassi churches. Rain can make the stone streets slippery, so be careful walking in inclement weather. With only carryon luggage, we have to limit our gift-buying on trips. We did purchase some handcarved Timbri del Pane (Stamps for Bread) by Mr. Mancini. Located at Via Bruno Buozzi, 87 in the Sasso Caveoso, you can purchase a bread stamp made of selected wood and he will carve your initials in the stamp to use when you bake bread in your home (extending a tradition from this area where bread was baked in large communal ovens). Plan your days wisely. Stores and churches close for 3-4 hours every afternoon. Local non-touristy restaurants are closed on certain days of the week. We highly recommend the restaurant Osteria al Casale which is only a 2 minute walk from La Dimora. We enjoyed it so much we ate there twice during our vacation. It is a small restaurant located in a renovated cave , so sure to make reservations. It is favored by the locals. Sample the wonderful local Materan cuisine provided by owner and chef Fabio, chef Mimo and servers Pasquale and Cinzia. Although we saw all the ancient and newer rock hewn churches, Basilica, Crypt of the Original Sin and many other sites, we didn’t have the time to cross the ravine to tour the other cave churches, but you can hire a guide to assist with that adventure. After seeing the historical sites of Matera try to stay at least one night in Matera and enjoy the glowing lights of the city and the charm of its people. Staying at LaDimora allowed us to experience Matera and Basilicata in a very special way.
