We ate here on a very hot day at the end of July. It was a delight to come into the cool interior from the intense sunlight. I was part of a large group. We were all served in a timely fashion and the food was excellent. Our main course was very tasty - pork with rosemary

My family recently stayed at Le Dodici Lune. It is a beautifully restored bnb located in the center of ancient Matera. It has an authentic feel with gorgeously restored, modernized cave accommodation. The cave rooms are gorgeous, clean, well equipped with clean bedsheets and

We stayed 2 nights at Le Dodici Lune. Despite being prepared with maps and phones it took us a little while to find the place. Definitely follow the instructions the hotel sends you rather than trying to navigate the Sassi yourself. Once we got there we were given a very

Good morning and thank you for contacting us. Our rooms are all equipped whit an high system of dehumidifiers so do not worry about that. One more thing, the caves are cold in summer and warm in winter :) Our guest house is located in the Sassi and we suggest to our guests to take comfortable shoes and light luggage. Concerning the parking we suggest leaving the car outside the city of Sassi in VIA SARAGAT where private and public parkings are available. In front of the private one there is a bus stop where you can take the bus to the Sassi that runs every 30 minutes. You have to stop at PORTA PISTOLA in Via Madonna delle Virtù. From there you can easly find directions to reach our guest house, only 70 mt far from the stop. If needed a porterage service is available on request and for an extra fee. Best regards, Mariateresa
