A perfect place in Matera
From the moment we started our journey to Matera, Anna and Michele were so very helpful. We had some difficulty in finding our way to the Sassi and Michele was on the phone with us, making sure that we found an appropriate parking spot and he was waiting for us in the main Piazza. Michele went over and above what could be expected by a host - he carried our luggage down to the apartment, he called our guide to clarify details of the tour the following morning, he made excellent restaurant recommendations to us, he helped us haul our luggage all the way to the parkade. The fridge was filled with fruit, yogurt, water, juice and other delicious tarts and pastries. The apartment itself if perfect for two couples, as the bedrooms are on two floors. The bed was very comfortable as was the whole apartment. The terrace that is shown in the photos is very large and overlooks the old Sassi. We have rented many apartments and houses on VRBO over the last 10 years and I will confirm that this is one of the best ever. Matera is really a unique place and one that should not be missed.
Thank you so much for appreciating our standards welcoming to our sacred guests.
In return, i have to say that it has been our great pleasure to hosting you and, we enjoyed and appreciate as well your friendly, kindness and genuine willing to discover this unique town.
All the best,
We loved Anna Maria's house. It is beautiful with lots of thoughtful details. She has a mix of modern and traditional furniture including a super comfortable bed with lovely linens. There are two floors connected by a spiral staircase. The view from the upstairs terrace is sublime looking out over the caves and rocks. The Sassi is literally all around you. We were charmed immediately. I would certainly recommend it to any traveler. Thank you!
A nice house in the Sassi
The house is very clean and well maintained. It is located right at the start of the sassi, which is fortunate because this is a pedestrian only zone and so you will be toting your luggage. Obviously the whole deal about Matera is the sassi and you want to experience it but it comes with downsides. One, there is a lot of construction and so it is noisy from early in the morning. Same for people coming and going with their luggage - you hear the clatter of wheels on cobblestones constantly. Parking is not convenient and expensive. That aside, you are in the sassi and Matera is magnificent, with great views from the house.
Beautiful home in a prime location.
Our experience at the "Poets Corner" exceeded every expectation. The house is situated in a quiet lane overlooking the spectacular Sassi within walking distance to all there is to see and do in historical Matera. Our host Vito was so helpful providing suggestions for tours, sites, exhibitions and great restaurants, we became regulars at Soul Kitchen. The house is exceptional, beautifully appointed with attention to detail that created a warm, inviting ambience that we did not want to leave! Fresh flowers, fresh fruit, salami and wine on arrival, a library of classical music, architectural magazines to enjoy while relaxing on the patio and fresh baked bread and pastries on our doorstep each morning. In choosing to stay at Vito and Anna Marie's home we experienced all that Matera has to offer in outstanding accommodation with the most gracious hospitality. Thank you Vito and Anna Marie, you have set the bar high for future vacation rentals.
