Awarded the title of European Capital of Culture in 2019, Matera is a south Italian village whose historic and beautifully preserved cave village – known as the Sassi quarters – is a designated UNESCO World Heritage site.

Sextantio Le Grotte Della Civita comprises 18 cave rooms and suites, and a former church as a candle-lit dining area. Located in the oldest and most fascinating part of the Sassi, here is your setting for a truly unforgettable stay.

Each space has been carefully renovated, to retain its original features wherever possible. Stone floors and antique furniture hark back to blissful times past, while facilities including Wi-Fi mean you can stay in touch with modern life.

Once you’re all checked in, why not enjoy a welcome drink on the gorgeous panoramic terrace, which overlooks the Murgia National Park? It’s hard to think of a more glorious way to start a holiday.
