Matera is the town of the Sassi, and is a place inhabited since the Paleolithic age, that now looks like a starry sky in the night, because of the lamps that shines among its ancient dwellings.
This is where Il Palazzotto is located: this charming relais with rooms, suites and a Lounge and Winery area carved out in the tuff, rises in the heart of Sasso Barisano, a few steps from the Cathedral of Matera.
Staying at the Palazzotto means having a unique experience, since the warm hospitality and the comfortableness of the rooms are in tune with the style of the palace, a sort of work of art carved in stone, where the tradition of coziness triumphs. The rooms differ in Classic, Superior, Deluxe, Suite and Family Suites, each with its own distinct identity: the size change, but even the furnishing elements (a nice combination of minimal and classic design), barrel vaults and walls that look like caves.
In the case of the Family Suite, you can use the kitchen, recommended for those who want to fell at home on holiday without giving up the services of a hotel.
All rooms at the Palazzotto are equipped with air conditioning, heating, dehumidification, private bathroom with shower or bathtub, courtesy kit, TV, minibar, free Wi-Fi. T
o embellish the guest's stay, Il Palazzotto offers the Lounge & Winery area, a huge cave dug into the rock which is at the same time the breakfast room, the relaxation area and the wine tasting room of the hotel.
In other words, breakfast is served here in the morning, and is entirely based on local products: from typical cakes to almond pastries, from wood-baked bread to locally-produced jams, from seasoned fruit juices to the wide selection of teas and coffee. Those who prefer savory can taste fresh cheeses and cold cuts typical of Matera and the surrounding area.
The collection of wine bottles is the precious treasure of the Winery, an area dedicated to guided tastings: here the wine is organic and is produced in the Vulture vineyards, owned by the family that manages the hotel. For those who book a stay at Palazzotto can join, on request, a guided excursion to the vineyards, just a 60 minutes drive from the hotel.
The dreamy landscape of vineyards lining the Vulture volcano and the tasting of organic Aglianico, Chardonnay and Fiano wines are worth the trip.
This gourmet tour is also an invitation to discover other places in Basilicata and to know in depth that universe of stories, traditions, art, landscapes and perfumes that is Matera, UNESCO World Heritage Site and European Capital of Culture for 2019. For travelers arriving in Matera by car, there is a parking agreed with the relais, an essential service to freely visit the town. Let yourself be immersed in the ancient charm of this hamlet, you will experience a vacation unrivaled with other Italian tourist destinations.
