Experience the modern charms of a stunning restored guesthouse in the historic UNESCO-listed city of Matera, with breakfast, a suite option and more

  • Carved into the mountains of the remote Basilicata region, Matera is on the arch of Italy’s boot, wedged between Calabria and Puglia. A UNESCO-listed cave city, is evolving from hidden treasure to must-visit destination, and has become one of the European Union's two Capitals of Culture for 2019.

  • On the edge of the Sassi (stone houses) district, you'll find the historic and exclusive La Residenza del Monaco Bianco. A graceful white façade reveals decadent modern design touches as well as elegant rooms and suites, of which there are only six. After a day of exploring, you can return to the hotel for a crisp Italian white in the courtyard.

  • Interiors are atmospheric with sliding glass doors, sleek woods and leather furnishings, all in a harmonious blend of natural hues - taupe, grey, cream and beige. Suites afford more space comprising a decadent circular bed, kitchenette stocked with wine, and balcony on which you could easily kick back and enjoy a glass of red.
