Ancient Manor House


Casa Diva is a boutique-hotel located at the Sassi of Matera’s gates, in the historical centre of the European Capital of Culture 2019. Each room of this ancient building reserves an appointment with characters, unpublished stories, fascinations, traditions and popular culture: a real historical house. Let yourself be pampered by the family atmosphere, enjoy a genuine breakfast full of local products, watch the city of Matera from another perspective, with the certainty of returning and experiencing, once again, a different experience.


In the heart of the historical center, a few steps from the Unesco heritage Sassi


The warm helpfulness of the staff will make you feel at home, with your family


The rooms are comfortable, functional and equipped with the most modern comforts


Typical and international products and cafeteria, also vegan or gluten-free

Different environments


Each of the 8 rooms (3 standard, 3 superior and 2 suites) is dedicated to a character of Matera that the guest will be able to know through a rebus that will be solved only when it will go away. The guest will receive a brochure that, through a story, a poem and a comic book, will reveal “who he slept with”.

About us


Depending on the type of room, you will get a view over the sassi. Although the venue is located in the historic area, you can access the venue from the Main Street quite easily, you will only need to climb down less than 10 steps. There is a cheap and safe parking in 5 min walking distance therefore also recommended to groups traveling with a car. Staff were very attentive and helpful. Breakfast is prepared without a kitchen but still very tasty with decent variety, and it comes with a very nice cups of coffees. You can have a breakfast at the terrace where you have a beautiful view over the sassi in case of good weather (you need to ask the staff to prepare a table outside otherwise you will get a table in the dining area).

Sleeping in a cave was cool. Lots of space inside our room and the hotel communal areas. Furnishings were very complimentary to the cave. Friendly and helpful staff. Very modern with wet room and separate led lit jacuzzi room. Tasty and simple continental breakfast. Very central to old city, with cathedral and main piazza just around the corner. Dehumidifiers in the room were a must to keep the air dry. Great views from the roof terrace and balcony.

A really spacious appartment- suite, very nicely decorated & quiet, in a stylish small hotel. Some details like the portraits of past inhabitants of the town or the history of the room are worth noting! The view from the breakfast room was astonishing, yet it's Matera!! From every corner you stand the view is astonishing! What a jewel-town! The location of the hotel is superb.
