Dico senza esitare, questo soggiorno a Matera, nella questa camera, rimarra un meraviglioso riccordo.
Allez-y, vraiment, c'est un endroit fabuleux ! On s'y sent bien, comme chez soi. Et vous y serez incroyablement bien accueillis. C'est un paradis.
Luigi informed us 3days before arrival that the parking would not be available that was listed in his description free of charge. At that time I wanted to cancel but his policy is stringent to be cancelled 5 days in advance. We were not feeling well but went anyways due to not wanting lose out on our investment. The walk was really far, he did help us but it did not help that we were ill. I wish Luigi would have informed us earlier due to the parking being blocked for the entire month. The apartment was fine in appearance and was comfortable, water was a bit cold but Luigi fixed it the next day. We were hoping to get healthier during our stay but that did not happen. I hope one day to go back to Matera, it seems to be wonderful place, just next time I will ensure good parking and good communication beforehand.
Luigi's loft is clean and comfortable, with wide views of the sassi and a great location. The kitchen is equipped with everything you might need, and the bed it particularly comfortable. I enjoyed having occasional visits from the cats. I definitely recommend this place, also for longer stays in matera!
Luigi made us feel welcome the moment we arrived. He met us at our car and carried the two portable beds we had for our children. On our way to his house, he pointed out good places to eat, good places to buy bread and pastries, and a good place for an aperativo. He also showed us some sights while on the way to the house. Luigi was also available to answer any questions and offer advice about the area.
The apartment is simple, stocked with everything that you need (including in the kitchen), it was warm (we were there in February), and there is even a washing machine (which we use frequently with two small kids). The view is amazing and we would love to go back and explore the Sassi and Matera some more. It is a magical place.
Advice for travelers: pack light as cars are not allowed in the Sassi and it is a 10-15 minute (beautiful) walk.
Thank you for everything Luigi!
Luigi was very generous and helpful, I'm afraid I was a little bit of a hassle. The loft is a fantastic set up, the kitchen was great and things like coffee and some delicious bread and spreads were there for you to use.
Just don't make the same mistake I did, which was only staying for a couple of nights. I could have easily spent a week here.
Grazie mille Luigi for such a great stay,
L'accoglienza di Luigi e' stata perfetta, l'appartamento situato nel centro storico di Matera e' molto accogliente con una vista molto suggestiva dei Sassi.
Non vediamo l'ora di tornare!
Consiglio a tutti la permanenza in questo splendido posto. C'è una vista che toglie il fiato e tutto il necessario per stare bene. Luigi è stato accogliente e discreto.Non potevamo chiedere di meglio!
