  • Explore the cave city of Matera: Carved into the mountains of the remote Basilicata region, Matera is on the arch of Italy’s boot, wedged between Calabria and Puglia. A UNESCO-listed cave city, is evolving from hidden treasure to must-visit destination, and has become one of the European Union's two Capitals of Culture for 2019.

  • Elegant design: On the edge of the Sassi (stone houses) district, you'll find the historic and exclusive La Residenza del Monaco Bianco. A graceful white façade reveals decadent modern design touches as well as elegant rooms and suites, of which there are only six. After a day of exploring, you can return to the hotel for a crisp Italian white in the courtyard.

  • The suite life: Interiors are atmospheric with sliding glass doors, sleek woods and leather furnishings, all in a harmonious blend of natural hues - taupe, grey, cream and beige. Suites afford more space comprising a decadent circular bed, kitchenette stocked with wine, and balcony on which you could easily kick back and enjoy a glass of red.


Please note that some dining and leisure facilities may be closed. Please call the hotel before you travel to find out if facilities have reopened.
