Corte San Leonardo chi siamo video cover

About us

In life as on the volleyball court...

"Sport is my life. Volleyball has given me method, discipline, creativity and flair. I have always wanted Corte San Leonardo to be an expression of my idea of hospitality that interprets tradition, kindness at the service of guests and sophisticated comfort.

It is a privilege to share time with those who can read our inner pulse is not just a phrase written on the front door but my way of life."

Strategic Location

Corte San Leonardo is located in the upper part of the Sasso Caveoso, in a central, easily accessible and strategic position for a holiday dedicated to tourism. At the centre of places of cultural interest, museums and typical restaurants, it is the perfect place to stay.


The internal garden of Corte San Leonardo leads to a terrace with a magnificent panoramic view over the ancient city of the Sassi. An extraordinary panorama of millenary history that starts from the Murgia plateau, continues towards the city of stone with its typical dwellings dug out of the ravine (inhabited since the Palaeolithic), and ends with the Civita cliff, where the Romanesque cathedral is clearly visible.

Free cancellation

For bookings via website, email or direct contact, it is possible to postpone or cancel free of charge in writing up to 10 days prior to arrival. In the case of cancellations received after 10 days prior to arrival, the deposit already paid is converted into a voucher with no expiry date
and can be redeemed at any time thereafter. For bookings through Booking or otherwise, the conditions indicated on the individual portals at the time of booking apply.


Sweet or savoury? That will be the question Tina will ask you when you arrive at the hotel. Our breakfast, made with local and fresh products, is served in the courtyard among the green jasmine trees or in the kitchen in case of bad weather. The products vary according to seasonality and availability at the time.

Aperitifs at the Court

The aperitif service includes a “Gourmet” version, consisting of fingers of land or sea made with fresh seasonal ingredients (home delivery service to be requested the day before your arrival at the hotel), and a “Snack” version with wine and savoury snacks to be consumed independently in your room or in the outdoor spaces.

Organised tours

We collaborate with agencies that are experts in organising tours and guided visits in which art, food and wine, walking and cycling tours allow you to enjoy your holiday to the full. Read some proposals in the Matera and environs section.

Corte San Leonardo Experiences

To capture the energy and soul of Matera, one day is not enough. That is why we have thought of organising, exclusively for the guests of Corte San Leonardo, tailor-made experiences to be planned at your pleasure.

Peet Friendly

Woody is Corte San Leonardo’s mascot, testifying that small pets are welcome here.
Accommodating a furry child at Corte involves an extra cost of € 20/ per day. A Dog Sitting service is available on request.

Anima Green Court

For a few years we have been working on eliminating the use of plastic in our facilities and carefully managing food waste during breakfast. This is a long journey and one that we are committed to continuing while respecting the environment around us.

Thank you for everything

A local house carved into the rock renovated without distorting with local furnishings and an attention to detail out of the ordinary. Fridge bar well equipped, as well as the bathrooms. Terrace overlooking the stones and courtyard where they prepare a five-star hotel breakfast. The two managers are attentive and kind. A stone's throw from the centre.

A magnificent courtyard

This court is very convenient for getting to the centre of Matera, plus you can have an aperitif or dinner on the beautiful panoramic terrace overlooking the sassi. Excellent breakfast and very friendly staff.

The most beautiful panorama of the sassi!

In the heart of the Sassi stands this little gem, where skilful renovation has not distorted the spirit of the place. Sipping a glass of wine or a steaming cup in ascetic contemplation is priceless, as the good ones say, but the San Leonardo truly enjoys a privileged position on the sassi.


Unforgettable stay in the heart of the Sasso Caveoso

A well-kept structure, tastefully furnished using reclaimed materials, in an excellent location in the Sasso Caveoso. The room assigned to us, 'Ascolta lo sguardo', is on the upper floor and has a magnificent and evocative terrace with a wonderful view.

Grazie di tutto

Una casa locale scavata nella roccia rinnovata senza stravolgere con arredi locali e una attenzione ai particolari fuori dal comune. Frigo bar attrezzatissimo, così come i bagni. Terrazzo con vista sui sassi e corte dove vi preparano una colazione da hotel cinque stelle. Le due gestori sono attentissime e gentili. A due passi dal centro.
