We loved this Diffuso experience so much the first time... couldn't wait to return. This time we had the " Executive Suite " with a stunning bathtub in the bedroom, not to mention the postcard-worthy view from the shower & the room. The night was chilly so we lit the fire in the bedroom....a perfect cozy offset to the "originale... More

I read about this place a few years ago and decided it would be part of our next visit to Italy. I was everything I expected and then some. We had a two bedroom apartment with fireplaces. The little town where it's located has about 100 residents and there's a few shops and places to eat. Cheese Boards and Vino... More

This is an experience that or you loveit or you hate it. The village is absolutely charming, seat on the main square in the evening to have an aperitive. The accueil was professional and very kind, and the room beautiful in the simplicity and original design. The lighting is dim, and i think that is the way it should be.... More

Eventually we found Albergo Diffuso, and were overwhelmed with the hilltop location and architecture. Staff were very welcoming, attentive and extremely friendly. Breakfast was plentiful, and served in an ancient hall the other side of the village, and evening meals were served in an old 'cantina' nearby. The selection of food available was very good, the quality excellent, wine and... More

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
