Torretta ai Sassi was our absolute favorite stop in a 3 week trip through Greece and S.E. Italy. Staying in an ancient cave was quite fun, and it was beautiful restored to high standards yet maintained its authentic charm. The view from our terrace was amazing! If you look at a Ben-Hur movie trailer, you'll see Sassi in the background!...

We stayed here on a group trip for two nights and were just blown away with the hospitality and attention to detail of the owners. They went out of their way to ensure our stay was comfortable and memorable. The views out of our window were unlike anything we've seen, and we've stayed at many places all over the world....

We stayed two nights at this small B&B, which boasts incredible views of the sassi and the whole river canyon. There are three rooms, one of which has more of the former "cave dwelling" character, but we stayed in a more modern room up above. It was immaculate, and has several charming outdoor spaces to relax, eat, and enjoy the...

From making the booking through Booking.com, the owners were professional and helpful throughout. The location had one of the best views of the Sassi. The rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean. We travelled with another couple who had a great view of the sassi from their room. Unfortunately, although there were a number of windows in our light airy room,...

She was informative and helpful in every way and she also prepared fabulous breakfasts which included home-made specialties of the area. The B&B has a lovely garden and terraces from which you have a wonderful view of the caves and the town. The view...

What a fantastic place to stay. The rooms were very comfortable, spotlessly clean and warm. Nothing was too much trouble for Valentina our host who made us most welcome. Her homemade breakfasts using all sorts of local produce were absolutely delicious and a real highlight of our stay. There can be no better view of Matera from your terrace or...

This place lives up to it's reputation.Friendly and helpful hosts and great views. The breakfast buffet was large and full of delicious home made pastries,yogurt,fruit and cereal. The room was comfortable, plainly decorated and average size. I think compared to other places we stayed it was a bit overpriced.No air conditioning. Two comments and these are not criticism just facts...
