A 1955 renewed house and... full of colors, crafts and art. Just in the city center, close to the Sassi and to the train station. Design and glance to tradition following the work of Master Luigi, artist craftsman who conceived and built it on the Hill of Castle Tramontano. The Room is equipped with heating and air conditioning and it's included in a smart guesthouse where you can grow up your passion for Italian art, language and wine culture. Possibility to rent bikes for free ride or tours.

The space

The room is part of "Residenza del Maestro", a central guesthouse for travellers and people of all ages. Attention to details, comfort and possibility to live experiences as interesting tastings of local wines or amazing MTB tours through the regional park around Matera.
It's also so special for:
- The proximity to every points of interest in the city center and in the old town
- The best free parking area in the town.
- The refined taste of furnishings and design
- The comfort of beds and mattresses
- The aroma of the espresso Illy

Stylish, safe, near to the train station and best of all - close to the incredible Sassi of Matera. Gigi is a very welcoming host and offers a great place to stay.

Luigi's eye for design, and the ability to see it through makes this a very comfortable stay. Luigi is around to help with information about Matera, and helped make my stay in Matera a 5 star experience. The apartment has a very convenient location for a visit to Matera, central and quiet.

Gigi's place is absolutely perfect. Within a couple minutes walking to the Sassi, the location is central and very easy to get to and park your car. Gigi is a wonderful and caring host, and meticulous about every detail in the apartment. Cleanliness, hospitality, comfort, value and everything else was 10/10. We are very glad to have chosen his apartment and will certainly return next time. Gigi will go out of his way to make sure you feel welcome and get the most out of your trip. Amazing stay!

Gigi is a really nice and interesting guy. He knows a lot about matera and its history. His place is totally hotel-like but still cosy. And it has a working airco, which could defeat the 40 degrees hotness. I could only recommend to stay here.

Like other reviews indicate and very much as described in the profile. Luigi (Gigi) is an excellent host; flexible, attentive to guest needs and with good communication. He also provided a lovely breakfast on my last day and we had an interesting conversation in English. The apartment is bright, contemporary, spotlessly clean and has 3 rooms (guest bedrooms), a small kitchen and adjoining balcony. My room had a comfortable and NOT hard queen bed, with good sized ensuite (especially good shower). Another feature that impressed me was the good quality wine glasses. It is well positioned, just 50 metres to the the old town ( i.e. the centre of the old town, which is a great place to start) and near bars, plus supermarket and tourist information about 150 metres. Great value at 25-30 euro/night for single occupancy (in April) and I recommend you stay here

Luigi was very quick to respond to my request to stay for a couple of nights in Matera. The room has been beautifully renovated; the bathroom is spacious with an excellent rain-shower. There is a communal kitchen with all you need to do some light cooking. Wifi access is great. The location is just 5 minutes-walk from the historic centre. Luigi was so helpful about letting me know what was happening each evening as regards cultural events (jazz concert, art exhibition) in the centre of Matera. He would send me a text with the information as well as a map of how to get there. The jazz concert in Casa Cava was brilliant. I would definitely stay here again and next time will take advantage of doing a bike tour with Luigi. Grazie mille, Luigi.

My stay at Luigi's place was an experience more than a simple overnight! Since the first time I communicated with Luigi until my departure, he has been very kind with me and available at any time for any issue I should have. The room and the entire apartment have just been totally refurbished and everything is brand new. The warm decoration let you feel at home and all you need can be found in the room. The bed is very comfortable and for those who need to use a laptop a nice desk is at your disposal in the room. The room has a small balcony, big enough to go out and look at the amazing blue sky or to smoke a cigarette. I definitively recommend you this place should you be in Matera! There are shops around, a hairdresser, cafes, restaurants, banks and anything you may need. The Sassi are at a small walk distance and in 5 minutes walk you are downtown where the nightlife is. Da Luigi: che bella scoperta! A presto, Luigi
