Wow we had high expectations of the Cave Hotel, especially as it was thought to be the best in Sassi Matera, and IT WAS RIGHT IN THE HEART OF IT!!! It was so good we stayed a second night, you really do need 2 nights...More
My husband and I spent one night here and will remember it was one of the most special hotels we have ever visited. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to Cave 14, a beautiful space that allowed us to sleep like babies. I must...More
