No chair and table on the balcony, but I took my desk chair out and read in the sun, so a negative became a positive. :)
Pina and Mimmo don't speak English, but--again--we did fine with Google Translate and I saw it as good practice for learning Italian. However, impatient people might have a problem with this.
Usually when I travel to Matera for the Women's Fiction Festival, I stay at another hotel. This time, my usual hotel was booked, so I decided to try the B&B Residenza dei Suoni since it was on the same piazza and I really liked the location.
I was not disappointed! My attic room was extremely comfortable and had a stunning view of the piazza. Everything was fresh and very modern. The bed and its memory foam pillows meant I slept well every night.
Surprisingly, there was no TV in my room, but I found I didn't miss it. I spent more time reading and working on my novel. I think I slept even better because there was no TV. I woke feeling very relaxed.
Mimmo set up a great breakfast every morning with yoghurt, focaccia, Materan bread, cheeses and salami, fresh fruit, cakes and pastries... It was a lovely way to start the day.
I really enjoyed my six-night stay at the B&B Residenza dei Suoni and look forward to staying there again very soon!
