Inviting Luxury Vacation Rental in Ancient Town of Basilicata Region

Cave in Matera, Basilicata

2 guests • 1 bed

This cave includes a King-size bed with an Air System Top Class Sanity ergonomic mattress, three pillows (with more available upon request), and a bathtub. The hotel provides a daily housekeeping service, a hairdryer, an on-desk welcome kit with water and fresh fruit upon arrival, plus natural shampoo, body wash, and natural candles. There is under-floor heating/ cooling system, handcrafted pottery and an air recycling system. The sheets fabrics and bedding is handcrafted rough linen, and is provided for guests.

At this glamping property, the approach to conserving the interiors involves a minimalist approach, using plain furnishings. Often the furniture has been built into the structure to maintain a continuity of form and function with the original building. Given the irregular surfaces, if freestanding furniture were introduced, it would be unstable and feel out of context. The objective was to make the minimum intervention to the interior, letting the cave interior express itself—so lights were hidden.

Where needed, and with reference to the lives once lived in these caves, recycled materials are used to build furniture (cupboards, chairs, desks). The aim was that the simplicity of form, fusing with the structure, would not interrupt the dramatic setting of the Sassi. The changes aim to form a dialogue with the cityscape and its history.

The historian Leandro Alberti who visited Matera in 1550 wrote that the Sassi at night had “a good likeness of the clear serene sky embellished with clear and shining stars”. The visit of Sassi at night still has this unique charm.
