A stay at the Sextantio Le Grotte della Civita in Matera, Southern Italy, must be one of the most unique holiday experiences you could wish for. It is a cave hotel, painstakingly renovated and developed into a very special place to stay. Lit by candles, the hotel has a tranquil and luxurious feel which makes it a romantic choice for a honeymoon. Their website has so many stunning photographs I found it hard to choose between them, and it really gives a flavour of the very special atmosphere of this hotel. The nearest airport is at Bari, at 64km.
