— How would you describe Sextantio Grotte della Civita?

Danilo: “It’s an unbelievable experience. There is no other word to explain the hospitality experience that you can have here. Sextantio Grotte della Civita is absolutely unique.

The hotel consists of various ancient caves in the middle of Matera which is a UNESCO listed village, in Basilicata, southern Italy. When staying here, you can sense the history of the place. You feel as if you’ve been sent back in time, living in prehistoric times, but with all the modern luxuries.”

— What is it like to sleep in a cave?

Danilo: “The experience is amazing. The caves are so big. We offer classic rooms, superior rooms, plus suite caves with all of the amenities of modern living including heat and very comfortable beds.

In the grotto, there’s an old church where we serve breakfast. We don’t have a restaurant in the hotel as there are many good ones in the area.”
