Francesco’s Sassi is a perfect place to stay in Matera. We loved being in the heart of it and the facilities are great. We would definitely stay here again. Francesco offers more than most Airbnb hosts offer.

This was an amazing place to stay in the fascinating town of Matera. It was great to experience living in a sasso but with great style. Francesco and Cinzia were great hosts and I would definitely recommend their apartment.

No pictures of this place can do it justice. You just need to visit. It is magnificent. I've stayed at several properties via airbnb in the past, and none have come close to this. It is everything you could hope for, and so much more. Far larger than we expected from the…
