Useful information for your stay

Set like a gem in the spectacular amphitheater of the Sassi of Matera, the Sant’Angelo Resort enjoys a unique location on one of the most beautiful squares in the heart of the old city. From the many panoramic viewpoints, your gaze sweeps across intricate houses, neighborhoods and characteristic stairways of the old neighborhoods until it reaches the stark landscapes of the Gravina canyon, dotted with caves inhabited since prehistoric times. The city’s UNESCO World Heritage Site wonders are all close at hand: the Barisano and Caveoso Sassi, the Rock Churches, the Cathedral, the charm of a thousand nooks and crannies await discovery.

The Sant’Angelo Resort  is in the heart of the ancient Sassi districts of Matera, precisely a few steps from Piazza San Pietro Caveoso, so it is a ZTL area not reachable by car.
This is a limited traffic zone, so for your stay we suggest you to use our car valet service at €35,00 per day.

Because experiencing the Sassi means experiencing the real Matera. Immerse yourself in a “slice” of those old neighborhoods and discover the magic of one that has been transformed into an “albergo diffuso”, or “scattered hotel”.
