The hotel is located in the heart of Sasso Caveoso, Matera. There are eleven large rooms with independent access and all the modern technological comforts. They are partly built and partly caved out of the local tufa stone. They evoke the fascination of the prehistoric caves that you can see from the windows on the opposite Murgia plateau, site of the Archaelogical Park of Rupestrian Churches.

Super hotel. They give you directions to a square near the hotel, 200m, where parking is free. You phone them and they pick you up, taking your luggage to the room. Very easy.
