SOLOSUD temporary home lies in the very heart of the Sassi of Matera. The old house
dates back to the 16th and 17th centuries and has undergone several renovations over
the years, all in compliance with its historical value.
My brother, Daniele, began to restore the house at the end of the 1970s even though it remained uninhabited for several years.
The house interiors were decorated to give an idea of how the Sassi dwellings were before they were abandoned in the 1950s.
Every detail has been carefully chosen and handcrafted.
The guests will find spacious rooms with a special atmosphere, where the reinterpretation of “living with simplicity” evokes the old traditions of this land.
In order to emphasize our underlying concept of original harmony, we opted not to introduce contemporary technological elements such as TVs and HI-FIs both on aesthetical and on emotional grounds.
The location is ideal for those visiting the Sassi.
The house faces the charming panorama of the Murgia Park with the Gravina “canyon”, the square of San Pietro Caveoso, the Madonna de Idris and the whole Sasso Caveoso. SOLOSUD is within walking distance of all major attractions of historical and artistic interest, as well as restaurants, cafes, craft shops and boutiques with the Duomo and the city centre just behind the house.
