Nested in the grottos of a medieval mountain village, nurtured within the Gravina River Valley in Matera Italy, lies a gorgeous hidden gem, the La Grotta della Civita hotel. It’s a romantic candle-lit cave hotel perched on the side of a mountain overlooking the majestic Gravina gorge. [La Grotta della Civita](http://www.sextantio.it/grotte-civita/?lang=en) has 18 cave rooms and a restaurant now, although it started out as a deserted network of hand-carved limestone caves in the 1950’s. They are situated with a beautiful view over the Gravina gorge and are integrated into the rustic towns winding cobblestone streets.
