“Beautiful!!!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

My husband and I travel many destinations and being Italian love to visit Italy every year!
Sotto Le Stelle is just incredible! Amazing view, modern suites, very clean and fantastic people in the town. Very friendly and will assist you in making your stay wonderful. The cleaning staff washed our clothes and left them in the suite by the end of day. My cousin Lynn requested soy milk in coffee and Danielle brought the coffee every morning to her suite!!! Danielle then offered to bring a beer and bitter to our balcony with snacks in afternoon! Great place to stay.

Room Tip: all rooms have a fantastic view!

Sotto le Stelle is much more than a hotel with a philosophy. It is a real celebration of local talent. Each suite is individually styled, as well as individually named, and we found ourselves spending time to discover how seriously beautiful our unit was - the kitchen, the bathroom, the hallway... The hilltop position in lovely Picinisco adds to the magic of the place. The views are spectacular, and the main piazza, with its incredibly manicured plane-tree, is a gem. Service impeccable. I loved the private breakfast in front of all that view - I call that a real treat. What with the location, the people and the weather, we had a phenomenal time. Our thanks to the owner and his staff.

Room Tip: No tips needed - all suites are unique, elegant and quiet. If one could try them all, that would be...

At Sotto le Stelle you are the celebrity guest and centre of attraction. In this 5 star, plus, setting, where no room detail is amiss, your every whim is attended to by magician concierge Danielle. He will arrange your meals, (as they will delivered, if you choose to dine in), arrange for restaruants and excursions, deliver groceries, should you decide to excercise your culinary acumen in the modern, fully equipped kitchenette feature, or fulfill any request, whatsoever, you may have during your stay. Dining in, or "supping" on the terrrace(s) or in the garden might be a dinner option, and will permit you to imbibe the array of rustic features that that enhance the underlying luxurious, contemporary accoutrements. All in all, go to Sotto le Stelle to visit the area, or to simply ensconce yourself in a luxurious ambiance without the bustle of a city. My wife and I stayed in a two bedroom suite with another friend,. It was unfortunate we did not book a longer stay, because one becomes almost too relaxed to depart. 5 star is an inadequate description for the ambiance and level of service at Sotto le stelle.

Room Tip: Soley dependent upon how many travelers you are and how many baths you might like. . The website ha...

Sotto le Stelle has brought luxury, convenience and sensitive customer services to the tiny, picturesque village of Picinisco not far from Montecassino. Each suite is different, individually named and styled. But they all share that spectacular view ...

Sotto Le Stelle, off the main square in the hilltop mountain village of Picinisca, offered us the perfect antidote to stress. For us it was a warm welcome, a sanctuary, a place to unwind, to recharge, to discover a different Italy, to explore everything from battlefields to mountains to the cells of saints. We stayed for 5 unforgettable days in Gli Scrittori - a room dedicated to writers born in Picinisco or who chose to make Picinisco their home - a four-room apartment (bedroom, bathroom, dayroom, kitchenette) furnished to the highest standard with amazing views over the Comino Valley, adjacent to the village square. A few memories particularly stand out: sunset over the valley from the balcony, cappucino and grappa in the bar at midnight, walking the mountains above Picinisco with a tame goat, eating the Finest Cheesecake Ever at the pizzeria. The Sotto Le Stelle concierge was utterly brilliant - from booking obscure restaurants to finding a guide to show us the parts of Monte Cassino that other turistas don't reach. Standing in St Benedict's cell where a handful of monks survived an Allied bombardment was surreal. This apparthotel provides a stylish welcome in a setting that is, in my experience, hard to match anywhere else in the region. A real find.

Room Tip: The rooms are all uniquely themed. We had a guided tour and they are all exceptionally habitable...

It's always a pleasure to meet visitors interested in learning more about this forgotten area. Nature, gastronomy and traditions are obvious, but history (modern and ancient), archaeology , literature, music and pilgrimage sites all add to the richness of Val Comino. We look forward to welcoming you back.

Had the opportunity of staying at sotto le stelle in picinisco recently while visiting the surrounding area. This albergo diffuso is quite simply spectacular inside and out, comparing favourably and indeed far exceeding some other 5 star hotels. I can only agree with other guests comments re quality of design, service and all around attention to detail. To add to this you have the stunning views over the comino valley with the opportunity of walking into the village square and enjoying the hospitality of the locals. The combination of quality and charm which is on offer here would be hard to find in any other hilltop village - resulting in a wonderful 3 day stay.

We spent a golorious 3 nights in Sotto Le Stelle.Everything was perfect. We stayed in Le Rondini (the swallows) a small one bedroom apartment with a well kitted out kitchen , small dining table for two and window seat with lovely views over the valley. The spacious shower had an unusual feature in that part of the rock the hotel sits upon juts out into the shower! We looked at all the aprtments and each one of them is unique and beautiful. We drove to Prati di Mezzo (approx 20-30 mins) where there is skiing in the winter so this is a great base for a summer or winter holiday.Monte Cassino is about an hours drive away and there are several small villages within easy reach by car. The piazza is a great place to enjoy a coffee and watch the workd go by. Sotto le Stelle is a truly unique hotel.

Room Tip: Each room is unique and has its own 'theme'. There isnt a bad room!
