The apartment has been fully modernised to a high standard. You enter via a lovely courtyard. The lower level is a kitchen diner. A mezzanine floor above contains a large bed and ensuite. The apartment is just minutes walk from the shops and restaurants. The owner ( Sandro) was a wonderful host. He met us in the new town and found us a safe street to leave our car. We could have used secure car park if we had wished. Sandro then took us and our luggage into the Sassi. Matera is magical at night and staying in the heart of the Sassi is a must to capture the atmosphere of the place. The only impovement we can suggest is that a toaster would have been useful. We loved Matera and this apartment in it

The villa was very cozy, big and had a wonderful swimming pool with a great view. Also the house had a wonderful terrace. The house keeper met us and showed the house and explained everything about it and about the facilities in it and about places you could visit and nice beaches. Around the house there are many oak trees on which squirrels are living. The house is situated in a very safe area and had a very big kitchen with all kind of equipment. There was a separate entry with gates to the house and what's more there were cameras around the house. We enjoyed our accommodation very much.
