Ecco le regole principali:

2 In caso di bisogno, chiedere, forse posso aiutarvi.
3 Fare come se fosse a casa propria, ma ricordando che è mia.
4 Ciò che trovi in casa, è per te: o l'ho messo io o l’ospite prima te lo ha lasciato in regalo.

6 E' preferibile lasciare il telefono una volta confermata la prenotazione, così sarà facile contattarvi se vi perdete per raggiungere Matera.
We had a really enoyable stay in Matera. It's quite tricky to navigate by car to the parking place near the house, but when we arrived Luigi met us just a few minutes after we messaged him. The house is very charming - it's just like the photos and description, and very clean and well equipped (although two good chairs on the terrace would be an improvement - we had to take turns to sit down!). The views from the house are stunning. There was a useful information folder which was appreciated - some good recommendations for restaurants. Despite being the height of summer and extremely hot outside the bedroom was comfortably cool enough to sleep well.
We would very highly recommend staying here - thank you.
Monsieur De Pace s'est montré très accueillant lors de notre arrivée et gentil durant les deux jours de visites. Le petit appartement dispose d'une petite terrasse intime et agréable surtout pour y prendre le petit déjeuner. Bien que petit et simple, l'appartement est assez bien équipé sauf la climatisation qui aurait été appréciée lors de notre séjour en juillet. L'annonce Internet indique qu'il faut aimer les chats et c'est vrai car il y en a trois. Ils sont tout à fait charmants...ils gardent même trop leur distances !
Nous avons malheureusement dû rester deux jours de moins que prévu. Devant ce fait, monsieur De Pace s'est montré compréhensif et cela n'a diminué en rien son amabilité, ce qui est une attitude et une qualité rare !
Nicely located apartment in the main historical centre of Matera, a great base to explore the city. Lungi has been very helpful at the arrival (definitely not an easy task to navigate the million little streets) and in recommending great food experiences! Apartment is just like in the pictures, overall very comfortable.
Ci siamo trovati molto bene da Luigi! L'appartamento si trova nella "parte vecchia" e gode di una bella vista sulla splendida Matera. Luigi è un host disponibile e gentile. Sicuramente un posto dove tornare.
From the moment I arrived I was blown away by Matera. Luigi very kindly met me from the bus and drove me to the Sassi. The apt was amazing, had everything you could possibly need, was immaculately clean, with a balcony view over the town, outstanding. I thoroughly recommend staying at Luigi's place. When, yes when, I come back, this is where I would stay. Luigi was such a warm host, very helpful, easily contacted, a great host. Sorry I missed you to say goodbye ...
Had a great time in Matera, the apartment is in a great location in the city. Luigi is very nice and so are the cats.
We have visited Matera several times, but never used Airbnb there and often stayed in the new part of the city. What an incredible experience it was to stay in the sassi! Luigi's apartment felt like home and he was an exceptional host. Very helpful and kind. His house is in a central location and has a fantastic view of the city and gravina. Can't recommend Luigi's place enough!
