This place has pluses and minuses. The location is amazing if you like out of the way and naturally spectacular places. The concept is interesting but flawed. There is too much emphasis on the old (poor lighting in the rooms, lack of showers) but also weird modern touches (the light fixtures and the bathtubs). The worst things are the beds... More

Stayed for one night, wished it had been longer. Staff was extremely helpful and kind. The room was beautiful and very romantic with a fireplace and candles. Lovely giant bathtub. Bringing our 2 dogs was no problem and no extra charge. The hotels restaurant was disappointing, worse food we have ever had in Italy. The breakfast buffet was excellent, and... More

Getting there was half the fun OR challenge depending on how you look at it. Coming from Bologna by train and bus can be exhausting but worthwhile. First, you should have a car and be able to explore the other hill towns as well. We chose bus and that is a bit challenging as there is one bus company from... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night in the middle of November 2013 and thought it was the most romantic hotel we had ever been to. The suite we stayed in was fantastic with candles a real fire -that you get to light yourselves - and a fantastic double bath. This was one of 20 odd properties the... More

Perched high in the mountains east of Rome this hotel is a real step back to King Arthur days. No phone, no tv but they do have wifi. They are renovating a very small village from about 1,00 and staying true to the days of old. Bathrooms are modern but that's where it stops. everything is authentic. As you walk... More

If you're looking for something that's more than your quintessential Roman trip, this is it. The rooms are converted from an old village that overlooks the country side. It's like being on the set of King Arthur. No detail was spared. Probably the most comfortable bed we slept in during our whole vacation. Yes, it's a haul from the parking... More

We stayed for 5 nights, and the hotel room was beautiful, and exactly as the hotel describes, so do not expect 50 inch plasmas and luxury sofas, but do expect peace, tranquility and a feeling of being beamed back a few centuries, but still having under floor heating, luxury plumbing and wi-fi. the hotel, as you will probably be aware...

Really lovely hotel, isolated in the middle of nowhere, quiet, romantic, calm. Food for dinner could get repetitive as it doesn't change but we were there for one night, which meant it was all superb. The breakfast, as they all the review say, is gorgeous.

We booked this hotel by error as we planned a vacation for the Matera location. When we discovered our error, it was too late to cancel so we made the apprehensive drive to Santo Stefano di Sessanio not knowing what to expect given that we had no time to research the place. We were pleasantly surprised. CONS - None PROS... More
