Your stay at Cenobio Hotel in the thousand-year-old town of Matera

Cenobio Hotel is an intimate boutique hotel located in the heart of the Sassi of Matera, a few steps from the charming Piazza San Pietro Caveoso and the beautiful Cathedral in Apulian-Roman style dated 13th century.

Excavated, modeled and set in the stone of the ancient districts of this marvellous town, today a UNESCO World Heritage Site and European Capital of Culture 2019, the hotel offers an enchanting view of both the Gravina stream and the impressive  canyon where the Park of the Rock Churches develops. In addition, it is only few steps away from artist Salvador Dalí’s exhibit, from “Casa Grotta” (the most ancient totally furnished cave dwelling of the town), from the cave church of Santa Lucia alle Malve and fromPalazzo Lanfranchi, pivotal place for all temporary and permanent exhibitions of the town of Matera.

Cenobio Hotel is a scattered hotel that enchants with its magical atmosphere and that stands, with its 9 rooms of different style and visual impact, within a series of ancient buildings that combines – with wisdom, authenticity and contemporary taste – modernity and tradition.

Great attention is paid to breakfast. Every morning a rich buffet is set up with a wide selection of sweet and savory products: croissants, toasted IGP bread from Matera, jams, marmalades and honey, cereals, fruit juices, yogurt, fresh seasonal fruit, homemade cakes and biscuits, typical ‘frittata’ (omelette), cold cuts and fresh cheeses, typical ‘focaccia’; on request, eggs and omelettes. For a small extra charge, a more intimate breakfast can be served in room.

Matera is a town rich in history and culture and a guided tour of the fascinating historical center is certainly recommended. In this regard, the staff remains at complete disposal in case any suggestions are needed, or in case any help is required in booking personalized excursions or guided tours.

For a relaxing holiday, in the heart of the town, guests of the hotel can benefit  from a partner beauty farm with SPA, massages and wellness programmes.

For business trips, the hotel also offers a conference centre just a few steps from the hotel.
