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 is set to become one of the European Union's two Capitals of Culture for 2019. Although many of the Sassi (stone houses) are abandoned, a growing number have been restored into museum galleries, luxury restaurants and swish cave-hotels. These merge seamlessly into the elegant new town, with its Baroque churches and graceful palaces.

It's here, on the edge of the Sassi district, that you'll find the historic and exclusive La Residenza del Monaco Bianco. A graceful white facade 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 sunset aperitivo in the bar or a crisp Italian white in the courtyard garden. However you spend your time in Matera, you're guaranteed a memorable stay steeped in unique charm and rural tranquillity.

Good to know

Please note that a city tax of €2 per person, per night (for a maximum of three consecutive nights) is payable at the hotel upon check-out.
