“Great hosts and great location”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Our hosts, Aldo and Rosa, made our stay in Matera memorable for all the right reasons.
From Aldo's kind greeting, complete explanation of all the facilities and help to find the secure parking for our car (he even accompanied me to it, organised a cheap special rate for our 2 days, and then walked back to the B&B with me - 10 minutes walk) to Rosa's breakfasts and her kind attention to detail.
The room had a super balcony overlooking the Sassi, cathedral and a busy street with plenty of life going on to watch.
Only negative was typical of an old stone house with thick walls - the wifi internet was less than satisfactory in the room but okay in the cafe and breakfast room areas.
The Sassi of Matera are breathtaking and need to be on the tourist map of anyone interested in history in this part of Italy.

We loved everything about this place. The apartment itself was spacious and clean; the balcony, looking out over the sassi and the Duomo, was fabulous and perfect for an afternoon aperitivo. The cafe/bar downstairs was great and run by a friendly woman. Best of all were Aldo and Rosa... the best hosts ever! Rosa was so sweet and her breakfasts were ample... pastries, fresh fruit, tomatoes, ricotta, focaccia... all hit the spot! Aldo was always around with a friendly smile and advice. We wanted to adopt them!

We stayed for 2 nights in August. Matera was wonderful. This little apartment was amazing. I had a decent map and we found it pretty easy. Free parking on the street. The room and loft are spacious. The location is perfect for exploring day and night. We finished each evening with wine on the large terrace looking up toward the duomo. Coffee and fresh pastries in the morning and snacks if you need them were in the bar downstairs. We would highly recommend this spot.

We stayed in this B&B for 2 nights in JUNE. The owner, Mr. And Mrs. Albo are very helpful. B&B is located in the Sasso Barisano, good location. There is a lovely balcony, good place to enjoy the view and sunshine. Apartment is clean, well maintained.
