A magical home that channels past and present through the vestiges of the former classic southern Italian style, a contemporary hospitality concept, a grand palace inside a small Italian town, at short distance from the seaside and Matera.

Located on a small hilltop town in the Basilicata region of Southern Italy, this late 19th century Italian Palazzo is set in the main square, protected by its inner courtyard, in the province of Matera, famous for its ancient cave dwellings, dramatic landscapes, and historic houses. The two-level house vibes with a relaxing atmosphere and it includes a heated pool surrounded by lush vegetation, a solarium, an outside bar and a manicured garden. Nine bedrooms decorated in elegant style with hand-painted frescos walls and ceilings, contemporary fabrics and several bespoke furnishing by local Italian artisans can host up to 19 guests (and 12 bathrooms), the estate includes 1850 m2 of gardens. The interiors include a spacious living room with a cinema with projector screen and a selected collection of the best classic Italian movies, an eat-in well-equipped kitchen, a bar for private usage and another bar open to the public street. Three suites are with a terrace overlooking the garden. A Mediterranean garden with bunches and chairs is surrounding a baroque fountain. Its current owners embarked on a meticulous and constant renovation, preserving 19th-century frescoes and installing top-of-the-line appliances. The palazzo features a heated pool and an inner courtyard with tables and chairs. The house measures 750 square meters and it can accommodate a total of 18 adults and 1 child (from 2 to 9 years old) in the loft of the bedroom n. 5. Best used for 18 guests.

From the main square of the charming Italian town, a blue wooden door opens up to the courtyard of this palace. All of the interiors underwent a thoroughly renovation combining clean lines and décor, preserving its architectural features and period furniture: marble floors, stone walls and arches, and vaulted ceilings of brick or painted frescoes. The restoration was directed by French designer Grange, who also designed some of the furnishings. The villa features today an international, refined style, unique, together with a famous cinema room, a heated pool, historic vaulted living rooms and elegant large bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms: the home design has been approached with research in the historical context results in a new-classic style, recalling the traditional southern typology, a contemporary influence, however, has transformed this house in a modern yet very comfortable, chic retreat full of light and a welcoming vibe, blending tradition and modern Italian Architecture. The property also offers guests a splendid private garden.
