SS is a perfect base camp. The locals are very friendly and helpful and really go out of their way to help visitors enjoy the territory. The Abruzzi needs our visits as earthquake reconstruction is still going on. SS is one of the admirable places to start!

What a magical place! You can travel back in time and relax and eat the best food too! We have visited two times since the earthquake and are so happy to see the progress! Can't wait to return!

We visited this lovely village in the middle of winter and found ourselves completely alone with the exception of the hotel staff. We were able to wonder its labyrinth of cobblestone alleys feeling as if we were exploring a long lost land. The silence was deafening. This long abandoned town is centuries old and has recently gotten a second lease... More

I don't think we saw much of the "town" but if we did it was very small. The highlight is the Medieval village now converted into an incredible and unique hotel where the original houses have been converted into hotel rooms which retain their rustic character but are fantastic to stay in. Atmosphere just wonderful but beds a little hard.... More

This old town is hilly with windy narrow cobble stoned paths. No need for a map. Just wander as it is not big. Down below there is a.churcb and cemetery. Uo the top was a tower but the earthquake in 2009 destroyed it but they are repairing it. There's many buildings being repaired. But what we saw that were still... More

What can I say, I love Santo Stefano di Sessanio. This is where my father was born. It is a quaint, small, quiet village in the Gran Sasso. It has the feel of home. It is the essence of Italy. It is breathtaking.

My family prefer Gran Sasso in winter, spring, summer or fall. Different season...different beauty! Santo Stefano di Sessanio is always our base. We love the quietness and tranquility of the place. It's a nice place to stay if you Like to visit Gran Sasso, Calascio, & Santo Stefano itself. Don't forget to buy Lentils of Santo Stefano to bring home.... More
