The beautiful Hotel Sassi is located in the region of Basilicata in the Sasso Barisano district, just a short walk from the main square in the centre of Matera. In the heart of Sassi di Matera, the ancient caved region, you’ll find yourself amidst the historical structures. The panoramic terraces offer stunning views of Matera's Cathedral and the surrounding valleys. The hotel prides itself as the first hotel in the Sassi, as it was established in 1996. It puts you in a prime pedestrianised location, just steps away from the town’s most famous attractions, such as the hundreds of rock churches with their beautiful frescoes.
In the summer months watch the rare lesser kestrel, that nest on the rooftops, put on a beautiful performance as they circle above. Enjoy this from the comfort of the balcony of your room or on the beautiful cobbled terraces whilst enjoying a local wine from the hotels bar. Relax after a day of exploring in your very own cave dwelling. The bedrooms and living space each have their own unique feel, with some carved out into the rocks whilst others perch on top overlooking the enchanting city.
