The B & B Il sasso e la seta is situated at «Le Malve», at the foot of the Monterrone cliffs, in the heart of Sasso Caveoso. Located on the second floor of an old house renovated with private entrance, it dominates the whole scenario of Sassi.

The space

The interior of the B & B Il sasso e la seta is characterized by a bright double room with high barrel vault partly covered by a loft . Up to four people can be hosted comfortably .
An antique wrought iron bed and a dresser in walnut characterize its simple and delicate décor. A magnificent view of the plateau above the former monastic complex is enjoyable from the lovely terrace of the room. On summer time, for those who are willing to, it’s possible to contemplate the above mentioned stone landscape having breakfast in the bedroom .
On the bedroom wooden loft there is a single bed too - and, if necessary, an additional one can be added - in order to allow four people to be housed.
On the same floor, adjacent to the bedroom, there is a private bathroom for guests only.
A large tub set in terracotta floor makes this space a place of relaxation and body care.

We think Luciana's place is the best Airbnb we have ever stayed at. The location is the best in Matera. The home is spotlessly clean. The bed is most comfortable. The sunken tub is to die for. Most of all, Luciana is the most friendly host ever. When we had to leave early she was not only disappointed that we would miss her famous breakfast spread but she packed us a snack bag for our trip! We only wish we could have stayed longer to experience more of Matera and Luciana's hospitality!

IL SASSO É LA SETA is very spacious and comfortable. Our host was very helpful in all aspects of our stay and she goes out of her way to make her guests feel at home. Matera is a stunning place to visit and Luciana has loads of recommendations for sites & restaurants.

We had a great moment in Matera and notably thanks to Luciana and her pleasant home sweet home. The breakfast is really generous and delicious. Luciana gave us useful information to visit the city. We recommand Luciana's place and hope to come back soon.

Luciana was a beautiful host. We could not have asked for more. The furnishings were thoughtful and charming. There's a jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. The location is incredible. One of the main attractions of Matera is literally out the bathroom window. The apartment also has a cute little patio where we soaked up some son and read our books. And the breakfast - OMG the BREAKFAST! She must have been a chef in a previous life because her spread was delicious and full of local delicacies. Our only regret was leaving....

Luciana has been an amazing host, looking after us from the beginning until the end of our stay. The beautiful rooms were just the perfect place in Matera, peaceful and idyllic! Breakfast was simply delicious with a lot of choice and local products. I would recommend Il Sasso e la Seta to anyone looking for authenticity and a warm Italian touch while visiting the amazing Matera.

Magical is the only way to describe the Sassi section of Matera and Luciana's place - as well as her hospitality. There room we stayed in was large, full of interesting books and art and has a loft if you have a larger group. The patio in front is a great spot to take in the view of the Sassi homes and the gorge and even some of the ancient primitive caves - in the early morning or evening or whenever, listening to the sounds of birds everywhere. One of the 3 amazing rock churches is literally right behind this place. Luciana was super flexible and forgiving when it came to our check-in time. We got stuck in a traffic jam on the way and then had a lot of trouble finding the parking lot near our meetup spot with Luciana, and when we finally got there she welcomed us warmly, showed us around and dropped off some homemade biscuits! Her breakfasts (we stayed 2 nights) were truly amazing - a lot of great homemade treats, enough to feed a small army and very fun, engaging conversation with Luciana and her friends that would drop by. We can't recommend Matera and Luciana's place enough - mille grazie Luciana!
