A romantic break at a unique hotel hewn out of caves, in one of Italy's most beautiful towns, including breakfast, discounts, flights and car hire

  • Unique and authentic, Sextantio Le Grotte della Civita makes the perfect getaway to a world of rolling Italian hills, gorgeous Mediterranean cuisine and stone age accommodation. The lovingly restored and preserved warren of caves that make up the property are located in the ancient town of Matera - the European Capital of Culture 2019 - and exude tranquility, calm and romance.

  • The hotel comprises a series of spacious rooms cut directly into the bare Tufa Rock. Authentic and rustic charms combine with luxury and lavishness, as the rooms boast comfortable soft linen beds as well as sleek and stylish, scooped porcelain bathtubs.

  • In keeping with the rest of the hotel, the dining area is housed in the stone cut premises of an ancient church. All food served here is traditional to the area and all ingredients are drawn from the finest produce the region has to offer – think cured meats, Mediterranean vegetables, cheeses and fresh fruits.
