We loved the James Bond hotel in Matera we saw at No Time to Die and we try to locate it!
All James Bond fans that are also hotel lovers and have watched “No Time to Die” cannot stop thinking about the epic cave suite which appears in the beginning of the movie when the starring couple Daniel Craig and Lea Seydoux are at the picturesque city Matera of South Italy. Matera, a breathtakingly beautiful city in the region of Basilicata, which is also a Unesco World Heritage site, is a complex of cave dwellings. Situated on a rocky outcrop, this ancient city is known for having 1,500 cave dwellings inhabited by humans since the Paleolithic period.
Although there are a lot of amazing hotels in Matera which is now a popular touristic attraction, the awesome cave suite of the movie with the three large windows overlooking the city’s unique landscape is actually a set that was specially created for the needs of the shooting imitating the cave-like houses and hotel rooms of Matera.
