The Lucane Residence

Immerse yourself in the splendid scenery of the Sassi of Matera, European Capital of Culture for 2019. Relax your mind and body and savour rare moments.

In places like this, tradition dictates that women are the leading members of the family. This is handed down in the names of women who, for their simple and sometimes ingenious ways of domesticity, have names synonymous with this exemplary tradition. Our apartment homes are dedicated to them: ‘Mary', ‘Lenuccia', ‘Stefania', ‘Sandra' and ‘Luigia'. These different names are each uniquely redolent of the qualities of hearth and home that define the Sassi such as good cooking, family bonding or something as basic as a kindly gesture or wise word.

Residences "The Lucanian" offers the possibility to welcome their guests in a manner that lives up to this traditional style in rooms located in an apartment on the first floor near the Sassi of Matera. The furnishings and the warmth of the surroundings embody the pure ‘lucano' style of 60 years ago. This can be understood as a contemporary style mixed in an interesting and unusual combination with old-world charm in a building framed by traditional fortified walls
