Breathtakingly beautiful

Posted on Wed, 11 Jan 2012 by midcenturyjo

No words. Honestly I am struck dumb with awe. Do such places exist? After the wonderful images in the last post of YLAB‘s latest apartment taken by Jordi Canosa with styling by Daniela Cavestany I went to Sr Canosa’s website to drink in more inspiration. Then I found this. Albergo della Civita.  Matera, Italy. UNESCO world heritage listed. The hotel is spread over a number of Sassi or caves, simply furnished. Lovingly restored. You can read more here. Breathtakingly beautiful… photos and hotel.

Ya conocía esta hermosa casa, pero siempre es un placer volver a verla. Abrazos.

It is beautiful & I totally agree with Bir Kadin..Cappadocia is just the place to go to experience cave hotels at their best..Its a dreamland..unreal & surreal…it doesn't leave you even long after you are back home! xx meenal

I visited Matera in 2008 (though not this hotel) and the Sassi are unbelievably lovely. The whole little town of Matera is beautiful (and, oh, the gelato!). I'd highly recommend it as a travel spot. Really, Sicily as a whole was amazing, and I think it's too often overlooked by those traveling to Italy.

Just glorious, we have an old place in Liguria to renovate and these images are so inspiring. I love the simplicity and the restoration even with the history. If these walls could only talk, ciao lisa x
