Accommodation Description

Trullo Sant'Angelo 4 nights

Trullo Santangelo is a complex of Trulli with nine cones dating from the 18th century. Its founder, Maestro Altavilla, the first oboe of the New York Metropolitan, had identified a spiritual refuge and a happy oasis immersed in nature in this property. Initially renovated in 1990, it opened the doors to travelers from around the world in 2011, thanks to the contribution of the Elia family. For the fifth generation, Daniele and Sergio are committed today to providing high-quality services. The farm offers five solutions, each adapted to a specific profile of customers, from the double teal to the family apartment. It also has a swimming pool and a restaurant. To highlight: the rooms are Trulli and Lamías (still typical but without a conical roof like the Trulli), authentic and original, with a charming touch.

Accommodation Description

La Corte Vetere 3 nights

La Corte Vetere is a recently renovated family B&B, where kindness, attention to detail, and hospitality are the characteristics that make your stay memorable. Leave your car and enter the old town of Matera to breathe the smell of coffee in the early morning, with a view of the city. La Corte is peaceful and comfortable; the rooms are spacious and airy with office corners. The patio will be the heart, the starting point of your excursions, and the end of the arrival of your travels to offer you the necessary rest. To highlight: the rooms do not always have a lot of natural light due to their original structure (one could not open windows because they were once "caves"). In the old town of Matera, it is advisable to walk in comfortable shoes.

To see nearby

  • Outside the old town, we recommend visiting the rock churches.
  • The sea is 50 km away (Metaponto, Marina di Gioiosa, Castellaneta Marina), Altamura and its delicious bread (19 km) curious the ghost town of Craco (56 km).
