Overview

About the property

A panoramic Holiday Home in the Heart of Sassi in Matera

An antique house steeped in history that combines the charm of the past with a sophisticated restoration to offer the maximum comfort of modern design and breathtaking views.

It consists of a large bedroom with a double bed and 2 additional beds and a balcony that grants you the best view of the Sassi; a comfortable living room with a sofa which becomes an additional queen bed; a kitchen made out of the ancient focagna (big fireplace); and a bathroom carved into the rock with hydromassage shower and chromotherapy.

The beautiful ancient brik vaults and the rooms dug into the bare rock will bring you back to the charm of the past.

Wake up and admire the bell tower of the Cathedral, have a typical breakfast at the cafés of the nearby Corso, enjoy the peace and quietness of the Sassi and yet stay very close to the best places in town: this is what the great location of Lo Scorcio will grant you.

Situated in the upper part of the Sasso Caveoso, right next to Palazzo Lanfranchi, il Corso and the most beautiful Piazzas of Matera, Lo Scorcio is the perfect place for those who want to experience the magic of the Sassi with all comforts. You can easily park in proximity of our apartment and reach all the major attractions of our city on foot.

Fabulous location, comfortable and cute cave unit.

  • 4 of 5

First off, Matera is a don’t miss it place to see. This apartment is perfectly located just off the main drag, with many fine restaurants and the major sights nearby. Couldn’t pick a better place to be. The view from the balcony, where there is a table and two chairs, is the highlight of the apartment, but the bathroom is modern with a great shower and the rooms are large. The kitchen is passable but don’t count on doing much more than coffee or simple cooking.

Perfect all ‘round

  • 5 of 5

Lo Scorcio is the type of place renters are always looking for. Excellent location. Well appointed. Interesting historical features. And extremely helpful hosts. Mariangela and Philippe could not have been more helpful.

They located a parking lot for us where we left our car for the whole time we were in Matera. It is a walking town and Lo Scorcio is close to everything. Would recommend it to everyone.

Best view in town.

  • 5 of 5

Not sure why this place has no reviews yet (perhaps it's new on the market) and I'd be happy to leave one. This apartment is exactly as well described in the overview, so I wouldn't repeat. It has all the amenities one may need during stay. Also, it was nice to have a living room too in addition to bedroom (which is not a common thing).

Besides absolutely amazing view from the balcony (truly the best in town) the apartment is very conveniently located. Grocery store is very nearby, place where you can get amazing croissants is just around the corner. The apartment is on a quiet (in the evening) street, but also right next to a square with busy night life.

Because we were traveling by car parking was very important to us. The owners of the apartments took care of the it and made all arrangements. We just drove there and parked. Considering that the apartment is right in the middle of the historic area on a pedestrian street it was a very short walk from the drop off before taking car to private parking.

I also have to say, that for touring Italy by car I booked several apartments on vrbo. Mariangela was the only one with excellent communication skills and very thoughtful in her suggestions and arrangements. She is a pleasure to deal with - very organized and responsive. Her husband was also very helpful during check-in (carried our luggage and waited till late for our arrival).

To summarize: nice place, caring people, amazing town. We felt very well taken care of.
