Home in Sassi Sextantio Delivers Culture & Comfort
Matera is amazing. This hotel is by far one of the best curated hotels in the world. Sextantio revitalization efforts embody the spirit of the ancient world of cave dwellers combined with the rich culture and hospitality the region values. From the minute you arrive the standard of care is excellent. The location is perfect to explore. Get a local guide or take a cooking class. The views are priceless. The modern elements of design built into the candle lit caves are quite extraordinary. Breakfast service is exceptional, the focaccia is some of the best in the world. Staff is exceptionally hospitable and local.

What can I say about this hotel? All I can say is that I had a once-in-a-lifetime-experience. It was unreal and it cannot be explained how it was. You have to stay to experience. We were lucky to be upgraded to suite and it was just sooooo amazing to stay in that suite. Facility was just amazing and you cannot find any better staff than those guys at the facility I met. I will recommend this place to anyone who will go to Matera. And Matera was unreal, also.
