Sextantio Le Grotte Della Civita is one of the best hotels I've ever had the pleasure of staying in, truly unique & memorable! The location was perfect for me, on the outer edge of the Sassi with a beautiful view of the Parco della Murgia Materana. Yet a 5 minute hike to the other side of the hill will have you in the heart of Matera. The room was very clean, furnished with rustic original furniture. When lit with the ample candles provided, one can get a very small sense of how people once lived in the Sassi. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was the best I've ever had in a hotel, stocked with delicious local foods and serviced by a kitchen which provided cooked-to-order eggs and amazing cappucino. The Sextantio Group philosophy of the "Albergo Diffuso" is enlightening and admirable. Their goal is to provide unique travel experiences while preserving cultural and historical heritage, and the result for the guests is an unforgettable experience.

This is a very special property that is unlike any other hotel we have stayed before. It’s a repurposed cave with minimal adaptions but enough to deliver a very comfortable hospitality experience. Very welcoming and warm staff. We have already recommended this hotel to friends and families.

WoW. The most unique hotel experience we’ve ever had. Worth the splurge. I highly recommend staying here. Very helpful and attentive staff especially Guisi who went out of her way to help us make the most out of our short stay in Matera.

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.
