MATERA, A STUNNING EXPERIENCE
Matera has to be seen to be believed. As one of the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world, this is the most outstanding, intact example of a troglodyte settlement in the Mediterranean region. The first inhabited zone dates from the Paleolithic, while later settlements illustrate a number of significant stages in human history.
San Giovanni Vecchio Residence is located right at the center of the Sassi, as the ancient town is called. Our comfortable rooms offer a relaxed and unique environment to make each stay a memorable one. You can enjoy the sunset by our panoramic terrace, chill out in a private courtyard or just taste a glass of local Aglianico red wine on the sofa.
At San Giovanni Vecchio you come as strangers, leave as friends and return as our extended family!
A slice of home-made cake with a velvety cappuccino, a warm croissant and an espresso macchiato, a bruschetta with fresh cherry tomatoes and a big glass of orange juice… Just few ideas to start your day with a big smile! Breakfast is served every morning at the Restaurant Oi Mari, right in front of the Residence.
Every room has been renovated keeping an eye on the original frame of the building. Located in the heart of the Sassi, each room has its own entrance, private bathroom, Wi Fi connection and air conditioned. As Extra activities we also provide booking for Tour Guide, Cycling Tour and Cooking Class.
As our guest you could enjoy a breath-taking view by the panoramic terrace on top of the Residence. Best tip from our guests: just sit and admire the ancient panorama! Everyday at 7 pm Happy Hour on request, do not miss it!
