A Paleolithic Chic Stay
The Sextantio Le Grotte della Civita, Matera
Even the name is sexy, Sextantio Le Grotte della Civita.
Minimalistic cave dwellings , directed by the tasteful, part anthropologist, part philosopher, Milanese, Daniele Kihlgren.*
In the Unesco Heritage village of Sassi, Matera.
One time abandoned and nearly uninhibited village, now an Albergo diffuso**,
with handcrafted linen, pottery, bathtubs and even natural toothpaste and toothbrush.
This meaningful and fully immersive experience is like rough poetry. Church choir and candle light with the locally organic breakfast, (now a candlelit breakfast is a prerequisite ...), complete with your own wooden hammer for smashing walnuts on your table… to candlelit holistic massages in your cave suite.
In the founder’s own words: “We want a kinder, gentler concept of tourism”
A Club Modeler dream.
