A deconsecrated church, lit solely by candles, with background classical music and a lit fireplace, the exclusive location transforms into a fantastical place where guests can enjoy the chef’s best expressions and local cuisine. Local wines, or tisanes, teas, taralli crackers and snacks are instead the key ingredients for a typical aperitivo, or a time to relax in the mystical setting of the church or the terrace with sweeping views of the dramatic Murgia Materana.

Restored ancient caves in the village of Matera, a UNESCO World Heritage site in southern Italy, Sextantio Le Grotte Della Civita offers guests a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience. Our cave rooms have integrated traditional design made from local materials with a minimum of contemporary amenities. Visiting the Sassi of Matera means having an out-of-time journey through the traces of the uninterrupted presence of the man in this area, from Paleolithic times to the present. Through the many extraordinary sceneries of Sassi, you will spot the main stages of the evolution of human history: from the dark caves of Murgia to the rock churches of religious communities and from the elegant streets of the Piano rich of seventeenth-century monasteries and palaces to the descent, almost unreal.
