Venue Setting

Everything you see whispers history and tradition.

Sextantio Albergo Diffuso Le Cave della Civita is divided into 18 rooms, some of exceptional size, and common sites are the cave church and reception area. The whole complex is located in caves in the cliffs of the river, against the dramatic scenery of the Parco della Murgia and rocky churches. Located in the oldest part of the Civita and falls in the Valley of Garavina’s river.

Sextantio Le Grotte della Civita refers to a pattern of land development that does not create environmental impact, because it is limited to the renovation of the historic centers of a country. 

Attention to detail in each cave. Candles are a must during the day! All the caves have different placement and layout. NO TV. Fresh and seasonal fruit served in earthenware containers. Breakfast is served in the Cave Church of the thirteenth century. In the "cave bedroom" you find cotton linens and embroidery kits salvaged from old wedding and from the bed you can enjoy the sunrise over the Murgia Park.

Via Civita, 28, Matera, 75100 MT, Italy



A trip to Italy is a charmed addition to any birthday wishlist. Rather than heading to the bustling cities of Rome, Milan or Florence to museum hop, your next b-day bash could be all about rejuvenation and feeding the soul. If this sounds like your style, check out Sextantio in the beautiful and ancient town of Matera. The cave dwelling hotel is a stunner that dates back to 1930, while the town itself has been said to date back to the Paleolithic Age.

The best part? You can kick-start the planning right now and book your stay right here on The Venue Report website. Too easy!
