Locanda di San Martino
The Locanda di San Martino lies in the heart of Matera’s “Sassi” Historical District, and at the same time it is conveniently located at a very short distance (100 meters) from the city center. The Locanda radiates outward from the deconsecrated church of San Martino and the street of the same name, through a series of balconies that enjoy a sunny exposition and a wonderful view of the Sasso Barisano. There are twenty-two guest rooms situated on four levels, renovated with the greatest care in order to respect their original forms as single homes.
Guests will be able to savor the experience of staying in cave-dwellings of the very same type as those which have been inhabited here for thousands of years; these, however, have been adapted to the comforts of modern living. All rooms are equipped with private bath, air conditioning, satellite television and high speed internet connection. The rooms, common areas and levels are connected by passages cut into the rock, external stairways and an elevator which connects the lower three levels.
