Our home is a typical Sassi dwelling dug into the bare rock, which merges the architecture of the the past with a modern renovation. The outcome is a house steeped in history, very charming and peculiar that perfectly combines the tradition with the modern comforts. La Dimora is situated in the upper part of the Sasso Barisano, in the heart of the historical city center, a few steps away from all the services and major attractions.
