4 star Hotel Sextantio Le Grotte Della Civita Built in… Prehistoric Caves!
By Eric • Mar 6, 2012 • Selected Work
Located in the Sassi area of Matera, a town in southern Italy, Sextantio Le Grotte della Civita is the only hotel in the world located within the natural extravagance of prehistoric caves!
This world-class hotel represents the most spectacular and well-preserved example of a town where thousands of caves have been used for centuries as dwellings, churches and even palaces.
The result is a unique location unlike any other hotel establishment in the world, and a UNESCO World Heritage since 1993 where luxurious comfort converges with prehistoric design.
You can book one of the 18 rooms all year round from €100 to €700 per night, depending on the season and the type of the room.
