Le Grotte della Civita – this is an unusual hotel in the city of Matera in southern Italy. The hotel has no “star” classification, the look is far from the concept of luxury, but the publication New York Times has made it to the list of the most unusual places in the world, Times – one of the ten most beautiful hotels in the world, and Tatler di Condé Nast – the hundred best hotels in the the planet.
In 1993, UNESCO declared Le Grotte della Civita World Heritage Site. And it is not surprising, because the project is located just inside the cave. Moreover, this is the whole town and the houses here are made of stone. Hotel Le Grotte della Civita represented 18 rooms in the rocky caves that can accommodate up to 40 guests. They are scattered on three levels and connected by staircases and terraces. The hotel is surrounded by gardens and unusual buildings, so that each of the rooms have beautiful views.
In the rooms you will not find a TV and mini-bar, because the project designers have the foresight to create an atmosphere of originality and antiquity. What is guaranteed – a comfortable bed, heating, air conditioning, lots of candles and aromatherapy oils, rare and excellent cuisine in the style of the thirteenth century with cakes and rolls with jam, cheese and sausage for breakfast.
In the evening you can comfortably sit around the fireplace and plunge into the world of wine, tasting the best grades in the region. Well, for those who are not ready to give up all at once, on site working wi-fi.
