Travelers' Choice
A medieval fortified village in Abruzzo region where its rooms, wine bar, restaurant, meeting room and reception lie scattered in separate buildings formerly used as barns, stables, pigsties, wine cellars and farmers' or shepherds' lodgings. Wood and stone cottages have been restyled as suites, the village dungeons serve as a wedding room and a former witch's lair now hosts business meetings. At Albergo Diffuso - literally 'scattered hotel' - in the mountains of Abruzzo, two hours east of Rome, a hamlet that had fallen into disrepair has been revived, extending to the local traditions of soap-making and wool-spinning, both now thriving once more.

The hotel and the project is something unique and truly exceptional as a fantastic project and effort to recover a medieval village. The staff very courteous and professional. I think some efforts to improve the experience should be made: - The rooms are nice but could be more welcoming and with a little more comfort, while maintaining the style; we had a suite but in the ground floor room it is not actually usable due to lack of lights and a comfortable armchair or sofa; the bed is too hard; - it should be warned that access to the rooms is not easy for those who are not in perfect health; the stairs are tricky to say the least; - room service is not accurate; elements are missing (such as creams and shampoos for example) that should be found in a hotel of this standing; - La Locanda restaurant is nice and welcoming and the service is good, the breakfast is of an excellent standard but the food at dinner is too banal; excellent products but not valued; an effort should be made to improve originality and offer something special. - the hotel should make an effort to help guests organize walks, provide guests with a map of the location with walks and guide them on any activities.

I always wanted to go and had to postpone because of Corona. They kept the reservation and got me the most beautiful room you can imagine. Unfortunately their restaurants where not in full operation, but the dinner was the only disappointment. An unbelievable breakfast made up for it. A miracle place, a dream, not a hotel!!!!

I cannot say enough good things about the experience we had with Sextantio Albergo Diffuso arranging our wedding celebration last summer. From the ceremony at Rocca Calascio to the dinner at the Locanda, it was just a magical day. Our guests LOVED the hotel and continue to talk about returning. It's an incredibly unique and almost moving experience to know that your staying in buildings that are hundreds of years old. As far as the arrangements, Sextantio is an expert in all things wedding. We wouldn't have been able to have such a lovely day without them. Donatella, one of the event organizers, is wonder woman, seemingly in more than one place at once and taking care of things before you even have time to realize that they need to be taken care of. Roberta was also a big help! The whole staff, including the workers at the restaurant, were kind and helpful. If you're thinking about having your wedding here, don't hesitate! We simply cannot wait to go back one day.

Perfect night away in this lovely hotel. Our family room had an open fire and lovely free standing bath. Really cozy, the underfloor heating is fantastic. Even the dog loved it, he got his own dog bed and bowl. We awoke to snow and a great breakfast.
