Francesco's "earth dwelling"was absolutely the most amazing and unique apartment we have stayed in on our 3 month holiday. It was spacious and very clean. The private patio, overlooking the street, was an added bonus - lovely to sit out on with a wine after a busy day exploring t…

This is a beautiful, private, cave apartment in a great location, at the start of the Sassi and a short walk to the newer part of the city where you can find cafes. Though my back issues and my wife's knees kept us from using the lovely bath area downstairs, we enjoyed our stay. …

Well, Matera and Francesco's place was our favorite stop on our Italy vacation. Francesco was very helpful and his place was beautiful and chilly (making it a great place to sleep). We loved that the restaurants were so close by. You won't believe how close until you see the…
