Please refer to your Holiday Information sheet (which can be found under View Departures & Book), for your departure date and for all your accommodation details.
The Charming Trulli buildings...
...are truly a unique form of accommodation! Each room is actually its own little building so it really doesn't make any difference if you book a twin, double or have a room for sole use.
As you step out the room your hallway is actually the quiet streets of Alberobello, each room not being far from the next so no one will feel alone.
Every room is just as equipped as a hotel room but with a few extras. Each room has eu-suite a kitchenette, small sitting area, tea making facilities, free Wi-Fi and a hairdryer.
Breakfasts are taken at the nearby and atmospheric Terre Madre restaurant a Trullo conversion Il Trullo Antico aswell as one dinner the rest of our stay in Alberobello we will dine out at local restaurants sampling the local food and hospitality.
The historic Hotel Sassi...
...certainly a one off hotel. It is made up of a series of dwellings spread out over an area of Matera, some of them built and some dug out of the rock with some rooms/dwellings going back to the 1500s.
It could not be better located with Matera's main square, Piazza Vittorio Veneto just a short distance away. The entire complex is surrounded by panoramic terraces with a view of the Cathedral and the old quarter.
The hotel has breathtaking panoramic views and guarantees a peaceful stay away from traffic as it is in a pedestrianised area. Keep an eye out in April and September for their resident Kestrel who makes the hotels rooftop its home.
With only 35 rooms, each one unique and are equipped with heating/air conditioning, free wi-fi , telephone, minibar, hair-dryer and flat screen TV.
It is a so-called “albergo diffuso” that is to say, a hotel that is spread out on different levels. Some rooms face an outdoor area/courtyard known as “vicinato” (the neighbourhood). Not to worry thought the rooms and common areas are easily connected by an indoor lift.
Spending time at the Hotel Sassi is a completely new experience only to be followed up by our next unique accommodation in Alberobello.
