“Stunning decor, damp bed”

It's a truly magical experience to stay in this beautifully decorated sassi. It was very easy to find and in a relatively good location - only about 10 minutes walk into the centre of the old town.

The home is well equipped and there was a welcome pack with water, juice and coke.

Although we recognise that the atmospheric conditions are different in the caves to a normal house, we did find the bedding felt very very damp. We tried to air the bedding throughout the evening and this did help somewhat but nevertheless it did make for a rather uncomfortable night. In hindsight we would have preferred to have had the sheets ourselves to make up the bed just before getting into it.

Having said all of that, we'd still recommend this as a place to stay in Matera for one night.
