Sassi di Matera e fiori l'Affaccio dell'Abate

The “L’ Affaccio dell’Abate” Holiday Apartment is located in the heart of the Sassi district in a privileged area on a small square overlooking the convent and the ancient church dedicated to Saint Augustine dating to 1591.

This small square, the point of entrance to the Sasso Barisano, is crossed by the connecting ridge between the two Sassi districts, Caveoso and Barisano, and the “piano”.

The “Affaccio dell’Abate” is inside a mansion-type building, with an independent entrance: an original stone staircase leads to the first floor where the apartment is situated.

The interior space is characterized by typical cruciate brick vaults, restored and deliberately left in sight so as not to alter the original structure and look of the building.
