Sextantio Le Grotte della Civita | Executive Suite



The Sextantio Le Grotte della Civita project is situated in the historical heart of Matera.

18 caves have been restored through a careful and conservative process conducted with the utmost respect for the local cultural heritage. Each cave reveals the original shape and materials.

The hotel’s interior design, the respectful and minimalistic approach of Sextantio is reflected in the plain furniture elements.

The guests will experience a particular atmosphere evoking the cultural and human history of the Sassi of Matera.

Each cave is unique with its design and features.

  • Cave 4: A spectacular 130 m2 cave with a linear depth layout. Past the wide living area equipped with a king-size bed, a large lavatory area extends, featuring an exclusive shower, a stone sink, and other traces of the different uses of the cave along the centuries. In a cozy recess, a bathtub and a relaxation area are available.
  • Cave 8: An imposing and spectacular 160 m2 cave with a wide layout. It features 7 m high walls and two large adjoining “Groton” (big caves): one is fully furnished as a night area; the other houses a wide genuine stone sink, the lavatories, an exclusive shower, and a bathtub located inside the recess.
  • Cave 13: Better known as the Bridal Suite, this is the only multi-level cave: its 80 m2 surface is split into a lodged night zone with a big window and a balcony allowing a panoramic view over Parco della Murgia, a living area, and a bathtub housed inside a romantic exclusive cave with a fireplace.
