It really was an awful experience for €225.00 per night for a damp smelly room with dark uneven steps leading to the sleeping area and cheap rudimentary furniture upon which we were left a candle, some dry biscuits and a bottle of tap water. That was our second room after we were moved because there was no hot water in... More

Informed by an enthusiastic Daily Telegraph travel article, with 6 vintage Bentleys we booked to stay 3 nights - lasted 2 - and unfortunately came away very disappointed. It's really a medieval theme park in-the-making, ideal for a film set. We did not have a room that looked anything like those on the website - visualize damp dungeon walls instead... More

Dear Guest, As we have said here in the hotel, we are very sorry for the inconveniences encountered during your stay. As for the parking lot, unfortunately it’s not part of the Hotel’s property, and even if we organized everthing with the municipality of the village, some visitors moved the barricades and parked inside it despite the official ban.

Its all been said before, a truly unique experience. Carla at reception was charming helpful and informative, her guidance to sites to see were first class. Massimo equally showed what good hotelship is all about. I feel it only fair to comment on our room Il Rondino. it was one of four rooms with a communal sitting room. you got... More

A unique experience staying in a traditional house in the village, which has been renovated to maintain the traditional feel with old wooden floors, fireplace, real furnishings, original doors and shutters, etc.. But modern stylistic ablution facilities have been installed in each room with taste and flair, though some people may find the privacy arrangements a shortcoming. My wife likened... More

Fantastic location, in a sleepy mountain village, out of season very quiet and peaceful. Lovely, authentically decorated room with very nice touches, such as locally produced bath products and liquor. Great restaurant...

This was definitely a unique accomodation experience! The region itself is beautiful and there are a lot of things to see nearby like ruins of old castles. The hotel was comfortable and clean - but beware that some rooms have baths and some have showers, but not both. Some rooms have fireplaces too, but all rooms have very efficient under... More

Very cool idea for a hotel: split it among many buildings in a medieval town undergoing restoration. Funky, cave-like rooms with modern touches like Agape tubs bring new meaning to retro-chic. The town is the hotel: the hotel is the town, well most of it anyway. This is what it really feels like to live in a tiny Italian village.... More

The Abruzzo region is picturesque and stunning in itself but add a stay in this diffused hotel and your stay becomes magical. The 600 year old rooms scattered about this hilltop medieval village will send you back in time and cause you to forget all your worldy troubles. An absolute must do. The restaurant, Locanda ,associated with the hotel serves... More

Yes, it is as romantic and beautiful as it sounds. A medieval town currently being restored, and filled with nice restaurants, wine cellars, tea rooms, handmade shops. And some skillfully restored hotel rooms scattered here and there in town. The rooms have been restored and decorated beautifully. The atmosphere is simply charming. Staff are professional and friendly. The surrounding landscape... More

We arrived at Sextantio and it was just as we imagined and saw on the website but we mistakenly booked for the sister property in Matera. Luckily they managed to provide us with a gorgeous room with lovely view as Matera is a 4 hour drive so be careful not to make the same mistake. The breakfast was really nice... More
