Every day we dream of a few days' break from city stress, looking for an exclusive place to relax. This time we want to take you to Matera, a wonderful Unesco World Heritage jewel, an enchanted crossroads that hosts "Corte San Leonardo", a charming B&B signed Arte Pura.
A UNIQUE JOURNEY THROUGH HISTORY, ARCHITECTURE AND WELLNESS
Famous for its historic "Sassi" that have made it a true natural wonder, Matera is among the oldest cities still inhabited today, characterised by an internationally recognisable architecture that has made it a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Located in the upper part of the Sasso Caveoso, Corte San Leonardo is designed in full Matera style: a natural jewel set in stone. The dwelling is a typical Matera house with wooden ceilings, stone walls and a delightful terrace overlooking the Sassi, where you can start your day with a leisurely breakfast of local ingredients.
AN EXPERIENCE THAT IS A PRIVILEGE TO SHARE
Barbara, the owner and creative heart of this exclusive Bed and Breakfast, was inspired in her choice of furnishings by Daniela Dallavalle's philosophy that 'it is a privilege to share time with those who can read your inner pulse'. Barbara embraces this principle, whereby dressing the communal areas in a relaxing atmosphere encourages guests' sociability, while in the private rooms the purity of Arte Pura fabrics ensures that the soul remains in harmony with nature.
NUANCES AND SHADES THAT REFLECT THE PURITY OF NATURE
Natural tones characterise the Arte Pura bedding sets in linen, with simple lacework that renews tradition and embossing that elegantly enhances the irregularities of the limestone rock, left naturally exposed in the rooms. Following Daniela Dallavalle's advice, the original furnishings have been lightened and whitewashed, illuminating the environment with new light, a touch that distinguishes the designer's artistic expression. The jewel in the crown of this experience involving body and soul are the words related to Daniela Dallavalle's language, the inspiration for a universal lifestyle concept for guests all over the world.
