Located in the village of Matera in Southern Italy, Sextantio Le Grotte Della Civita is an 18-room boutique hotel restored from abandoned prehistoric caves. The Sassi di Matera (stones of Matera) are prehistoric dwellings dug into the rock itself. Today, the area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The original architecture of this ancient cave hotel has been carefully preserved while modern amenities are featured where necessary. The rustic decor with cobblestone floors take you back to the Middle Ages.
