We were absolutely blown away by the prospect of sleeping in a part of a castle perched on a hill in Abruzzo. We weren't disappointed as the room was everything we had hoped. The staff were very welcoming, the attention to detail in the room was wonderful and the furnishings very age appropriate. A couple of minor points to note... More

We found this place out by coincidence, had no idea about the philosophy, etc. Then, upon arrival we were shocked we're going to stay and sleep in the place/cave where donkeys used to live hundreds of years ago! This is truly unique experience. You would need to read deeply all the story behind the Sextantio project to appreciate it all.... More

Hard to improve on what other reviews have said. This place innovative in its use of space, history and traditional decor and furniture. It really is a wow experience! The beauty of the village, the stunning restoration of the rooms and the ambience they have created is perfect. We visited in our honeymoon and it was an amazing place to... More

I am so impressed with the architectural company Sextantio. This was the second hotel we stayed at, first one was in Matera, Italy. You must "google" them as they are buying old buildings, caves and restoring them to fabulous hotels, what I call bed and breakfast. They are amazing and I wish them a lot of luck. My next trip...

We stayed at the Bambini suite. It's an old house, very cozy, medieval style. Not fancy old charm, but rustic one. The entrance has wood rustic furniture and the room is on the first floor. The stairs are hard, so you need to be careful and not having any problems climbing, otherwise book regular rooms. On the room you have... More

We stayed here 5 nights under a Voyage Prive deal. First of let me start by saying that the deal we had wasn't bad which is why we thought it was a good idea of stay for 5 nights. It is unlike anywhere you will ever stay. It is preserved perfectly in Medieval style. The rooms, the village, everything is... More

I booked a superior room in this hotel. In my confirmation email they promised a spacious king size room with a bathtub and a fireplace in the room. At the arrival they told me that the room is not available. They said that i will get another room the next day. I asked if in this one will be the... More

We stayed in nine different accommodations during our recent trip to Italy. Because the following experiences were fairly consistent from place to place, I offer them not as criticisms but as observations on cultural differences. We found that beds were VERY firm, showers small, that toiletries always included shower caps but never conditioner, that bedrooms and baths contained highly scented... More

We stayed only one night in this sweet village for a quick weekend away from Rome. The scenery is beautiful and Abruzzo, in early November, has her fall colours on beautiful display. The hotel is well organized and managed and the amount of care and concern is very apparent. We stayed in one of the tower rooms with a split... More

It's like stepping back in time but with modern comforts! The hotel is part of a restored medieval village in a beautiful landscape with hills and mountains. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed one night in the most atmospheric and beautiful room/apartment with a downstairs 'lounge' area and up to a warm en suite bedroom complete with... More
