Room service at Sextantio Le Grotte della Civita in Matera, Italy (Photo by Brad A. Johnson)
Here’s a photo I took last month in Matera, Italy. This was the dining table in my hotel suite. You might notice a similarity between this photo and the image that I use for my header. Both were taken at the same place. This was my second visit to Sextantio Le Grotte della Civita, one of the most amazing hotels in the world, a property that has flipped the idea of luxury on its head. Built from a series of ancient residential caves, the hotel is truly sublime. Yet also shockingly stark and rustic. I’ll be posting more photos of Sextantio soon. But for now, a single image pretty much says it all.
