Corte San Pietro, Matera
|Via Bruno Buozzi, 97b, 75100, Matera, Matera, Basilicata, ITALY.|
Description: Corte San PietroThis magnificent property is set around a courtyard in the heart of Matera, the spectacular village of cave dwellings in this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Carefully restored from this historic building, carved into the typical limestone of the region, Corte San Pietro now offers exclusive bed and breakfast accommodation in a unique setting.
Perfectly located for exploring Matera and its fascinating history, Corte San Pietro is just a stone's throw from the Madonna de Idris cave church, while the 14th century San Pietro Caveoso is also a few steps away. Other fabulous landmarks and monuments include the cathedral and the Tramontano Castle. Set in the heart of the Murgia Materana natural park, Matera is an ideal starting point for countless activities, including horse riding, cycling and trekking. On request, guest may visit La Luna dal Pozzo, a fascinating system of eight underground cisterns, once used for collecting rainwater.
Corte San Pietro has just five rooms and suites, all sympathetically restored using original natural stone, ancient timber and antique furniture. Modern amenities have not been forgotten, and the rooms feature ingenious cooling and heating systems, especially created to eliminate the humidity of these underground dwellings. The rooms are also equipped with Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs.
