Come and discover our world

Over 400 square meters dug into the tuff of the cavernous maze of the ancient Sassi District. A true sensory journey that will take you on a discovery of the best food and wine productions of Southern Italy. To help you rediscover values and traditions whose origin is lost in the mists of time.

Within this atmospheric space is a huge variety of products divided into thematic areas. From olive oil to pasta, from cereals to fruit and vegetables, from wine to beer, via cheeses, cured meats and spices that encapsulate the flavors, colors and scents of a unique land.

An exclusive store in the heart of the Sassi of Matera that establishes itself as a haven for a beauty-conscious and design-loving community. Within an elegant and incredibly impressive space, Gocciagoccia was born. A selection of the best craft productions from the Mediterranean basin and the rest of the world. From design to art, via body care, clothing and furniture. Each item on display is designed to give back to an attentive and select clientele a value that is in danger of being lost over time: that of uniqueness. In Gocciagoccia the exploration of craft creativity is an exciting journey to the most innovative “handmade” workshops in Italy and the world. Unique items for oneself and to give as gifts, expressing all the quality and authenticity resulting from traditions as old as the world.
Too often being a tourist means feeling like an outsider. Not from us, not at “La Casa di Lucio”

In our Albergo Diffuso you can see and appreciate the most authentic soul of Matera, discover the daily habits of its inhabitants, learn about its customs and share its traditions. You will be able to smell the bread baked by our neighbors, watch kids play ball among the lanes and a couple in love exchange a kiss on one of the countless steps of our wards.

This for us is really feeling at home.
