A unique little hotel in Matera that has been carved out of the rocks.
You are now in World Heritage country, for Matera is a UNESCO protected site. The town is renowned for its "sassi" - dwellings carved out from the rocks - and the hotel Sassi, as the name implies, is constructed in the same vein. It really is a magical town and this unique little hotel, built in the 18th century and located near the centre, does Matera justice.
Rooms have been hewn out of the soft stone to give a spectacular effect. It may look basic but all the amenities are there and they even come with beautiful tiled bathrooms. Each one may be different but all come with terraces and balconies from whence guests can take in the sights of the Romanesque cathedral and the Sasso Barisano.
As a guest once said the whole place is beyond description, so please sit back and simply enjoy the photos, which in this case really do say more than a thousand words.
