Of the many cave hotels in Matera, this beautiful enclave at the bottom of Sasso Barisano is one of the most welcoming. These are caves with a view, where well-designed and comfortably furnished rooms (some with sunken tubs) open onto a bright terrace—a front-row seat for a spectacular vista of dwellings clinging to the surrounding hillsides. Welcoming outdoor spaces are well supplied with loungers, the perfect perch for a drink, a nap, or just soaking in the views. The breakfast room does double duty as a bar/cafe.
