About to start a trip through South America where I will stay, mainly, in hostels, campsites and low-budget hotels, it is not too bad to see that there are still more hotels that can surprise you from the point of view of the lover of The original and new things.
This is the case of Albergo Sassi di Matera. Located in the Italian town of Matera, it offers a kind of accommodation almost unique in the World, and its guests can enjoy high-quality accommodation inside caves of more than 2000 years old.
The city of Matera was populated since the Neolithic, about 10,000 years ago, and its caves have been used as houses, churches or palaces since time immemorial.
The caves have been carefully remodeled, using materials from the time they were built and creating a balanced mix between luxury and the feeling of living in another era. It also has an enviable location, overlooking the city and the natural canyon that you can explore with some bikes or legs.
If you feel like spending a good pasta -each one of the 18 rooms leave for about 240 Euros a night- and stay in a prehistoric caves with the paradox of having Wi-Fi internet connection and a bar a few meters away, this is your opportunity .
