Our bed-and-breakfast in the heart of the Sassi quarter of Matera.

B&B IL SORRISO DEI SASSI (the Smile of the Sassi area) is in a small two floors Palazzo dated back in the XVIII century built over old cave dwellings typical of the local architecture made in the Middle Ages.

Entirely built with the local lime-stone called “tufo” and the typical barrel vaults and very thick walls.

After a long renovation made to respect the original structure, today the B&B is divided in two floors; the first one is the ground floor that welcomes you with the reception area. Through a door you have access to the breakfast area where Alessandra, the owner and her family members, make breakfast every morning.

At the first floor there are four rooms: one Junior Suite and one Superior Deluxe called BELVEDERE and IDRIS both with a great view over the Sassi quarter, a Deluxe and a Standard room called CASTELLO and NIDO, all of them giving you all comforts to provide you a relaxing stay.


Don’t hesitate to ask us to help you to plan your excursions and to find a good restaurant.
