  • Een appartement dat voorzien is van alle gemakken, weliswaar basic maar compleet, behalve verwarming. Bed is vrij hard.
    Ligging is ideaal met prachtig uitzicht.
    Een zeer vriendelijke, behulpzame verhuurder

  • Matera is een magische plek en het huisje van Luigi is fantastisch gelegen om dit ten volle te beleven. Wij zijn er supergoed ontvangen, Luigi hielp ons bij het zoeken van een parkeerplaats in de buurt en gaf heel wat nuttige tips voor ons bezoek. Het huisje is comfortabel en heeft een mooi terras met zicht op de sassi. Het is ook handig dat er wat kookgerief staat en basisingrediënten voor de keuken. Kortom een aanrader voor een onvergetelijk verblijf!

  • This a very nice and spacious apartment, located in the spectacular old city of Matera, knows as the Sassi. Luigi is a very kind and helpful host.

    Highly recommended!

  • Luigi has been a very friendly and caring host! We felt wonderful in the apartment, and liked it a lot. In fact it has become a home for us very fast! Everything functions in an efficient and beautiful simple way. The cats are sweet and make the place even more cosy. The view from the balcony is stunning! The bed is not perfect, maybe a little too hard for our backs, - but that has a lot to do with how one is used to have things. It was absolutely silent in the nights and we enjoyed that very much! It is a charming place, with an aura, with charisma, and we would definitely love to come back!

  • What a beautiful apartment! My boyfriend and I have just got back from 5 days in Matera and it was perfect - it's a place made of magic, and Luigi's home certainly added to it. The cats are hilarious, it was like a home from home.
    Thank you for your hospitality, it was such a pleasure to stay.

  • The apartment was great and Luigi the perfect host. We stayed in winter and the heating was fine. The weather is Matera was not too cold and the whole town was well worth the visit. Just follow Luigi's suggestion and lose yourself in the streets.

  • A friend and I stayed at Luigi's beautiful loft, thinking that 2 nights would be plenty of time to appreciate Matera's rock-cut churches. How wrong were we!? Matera is a beautiful town to explore on foot-- getting lost is a pleasure here-- and Luigi's loft is right in the thick of things. He is very cordial and welcoming, while respecting the privacy of his visitors. And his cats! Oh, the cats are wonderful. What can be lovelier than watching the sunset over the Sassi with kitties battling for your attention? The loft is very comfortable, although the stairs to the lofted bedroom are steep. Be mindful. The kitchen is well-appointed, and we used it every night. During the day, we feasted on wonderful charcuterie platters at Arturo and pasta dishes at trattorie around the S. Francesco area. I have a pretty tight budget (grad student), and I found the area very affordable. I highly recommend a guided tour of the Murgia, where the painted Byzantine churches are some of the best-preserve rock-cut monuments in Italy. The guides and custodians of Matera's cultural heritage were accommodating and knowledgeable. I'll definitely return to Luigi's loft!
