Something very special, to go to sleep and then wake up in the heart of Matera. A very comfortable, spacious and romantic apartment - even nicer than the photos. The ideal base to explore this fascinating place. A very accommodating host gave us a warm welcome and made sure we had everything we needed (including parking!). Don't miss this!

The kitchen is well equipped with hardware for cooking, but the selection of pots and cutlery is extremely limited. Didn't much matter for me, since numerous restaurants were available, but it could be problem for some.
Very impressive and grand apartment, traditional building restored with vaulted ceiling. All very inspiring. Great, and very helpful host. Wouldn't have managed to find the place without him.

Don't expect much natural light - it's a cave!

Franco is a wonderful host, very helpful to understand the sassi. We loved the location of our large grotto apartment (he rents 2: one is a grotto, the other one is more normal but also has charm of vaulted ceiling, etc.). It is near via Fiorentini which shows on Google maps, easy to find and not too hard to get your luggage there unlike some other B&B. Very good restaurants nearby. Grocery store less than 10mn walk. Lots of pressure on the shower. Space. Feeling at home.

Kitchen poorly equipped - not really possible to cook there (no condements, wine glasses, etc). Bed ok but pillows very uncomfortable. No shampoo or shower soap provided and only one bathroom towel.
Good location in the heart of the Sassi. Nice hosts, although English a bit weak. Very large apartment. Be aware though that the Loft is downstairs and there is no view from the room.

Anna Rosa and Franco could not do enough for us, over and above. When we first saw the deluxe apartment we were blown away with the beauty of it. You have everything you need for a short stay in the apartment and excellent value for money. The Sax Cafe was across the road for meals and coffee and many other restaurants nearby. A perfect location in the old section of a wonderful, interesting town.

Basic kitchen facilities
It has great location and is very authentic Sassi dwelling, but is very difficult to find. Had washing machine.

We took a taxi from the train station to the sassi, and our driver got lost. Luckily the owners of Casa Vetere came to find us and helped us get our bags to their beautiful place, which is actually accessible by car (a rare thing in the Sassi, no lugging your bags up stairs and hills!). The room we stayed in (loft) is enormous; with a few more beds could easily house a big family for an extended stay. The kitchen was well equipped and even had a washing machine. Everything in the apartment was clean and worked well. Big thanks to the owners for an amazing stay in Matera, would definitely recommend!

The kitchen is not fully equipped. The host is really nice, but does not speak English, only Italian.
Matera was a real discovery and beautiful, peaceful, old place with realyy friendly people. Our host was super friendly and came to bring us fresh figs and wanted to show us around.
