ehh ...............questa è una nuova esperienza, gratificante abbastanza,
il confronto con altre persone è sempre qualcosa di nuovo.!
Our stay in Massimo's apartment was perfect. The apartment is extremly clean and it has all the facilities to prepare a good breakfast in the morning (ciambella & marmelade that he gave us were also excellent!).
The only "but" (which we already knew) is that it's a bit away from the city center ("sassi") in case you have to go there by walk or using public transportation. By car is only a few minutes.
But, on the other hand, the apartment has a private parking where we could securely leave our car and it is an excellent location if you want to visit, by private car, other cities in the area. During our stay we also visited Castel del Monte, Andria, Trani, Bari and Murgia natural park.
Massimo is an excelent host: he gave us good informations about the city, a restaurant recommendation and he was very nice waiting for our late arrival on the first day.
Massimo's flat is very cute and cozy. Extremelly clean and close to the center by car. Massimo has been very kind and welcoming. He made us feel like home as soon as we arrived. His mother prepared some delicious little cakes stuffed with handmade jam for us!! What else could we desire? I highly recommend Massimo as a host
The apartment is nice, but you'll have to drive\take a bus to the center, cause it's quite a walk. I can't remember if it says it has a washing machine, but either way,don't count on it(you can't use it). He's a nice host, gave us a good map.
Massimo was very knowledgable about what to do and see. Free parking which was a bonus. It's a 20 min walk to the old town but seen as though the price was good and we don't mind walking, we didn't have a problem with it. His mums breakfast was also very nice.
La posizione del b&b è perfetta per chi come noi era in auto, rimane comunque fuori dal centro.
L'appartamento è ben arredato e pulito, unico piccolo neo a mio modesto parere: la colazione era un po' poco varia, solo latte e nessun tipo di succo di frutta o yogurt. Comunque si può sempre migliorare! ;)
Ps: complimenti per crostata e marmellate fatte dalla mamma, fantastiche!!!
Abbiamo alloggiato nel B&B Meucci una notte e abbiamo trovato un Host molto disponibile e simpatico. Massimo ci ha dato una piccola spiegazione su Matera e consigliato anche un ottimo ristorante in cui mangiare bene e spendere poco! Very kind Host! Very nice B&B!
Response from Massimo:
Thanks a lot friends
We enjoyed our stay. The location of the apartment is close enough to the centre of things but is nondescript at best.
Massimo è un grande ospite, ci ha dato buoni consigli, ma soprattutto è stato molto disponibile e simpatico.
La mamma ci ha preparato ottimi dolci e marmellate per la colazione.
L'appartamento è ampio, confortevole e arredato in modo originale.
Si trova in una zona periferica di Matera da cui è facile raggiungere il centro in 5 minuti di macchina.
Saluti speciali al gatto Richard!
Massimo was a lovely host, lives just upstairs and was on hand to recommend places to visit or to eat, to give us directions and tell us about the history of the town and its surroundings. Apartment is very close to Matera Villa Longo train station - one stop away from the centre - and well worth staying a little further out for the modern, spacious apartment you get in return. Highly recommended!
