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.

This "albergo diffuso" affords the opportunity to stay in a medieval stone village in the mountains of Abruzzo. As described, the rooms are small dwellings spread around the village. You may be staying next door or across from a local resident of the village. All of the bathroom fixtures are modern, but the rooms purposely have a rustic feel (uneven floors, bare walls, sparse furnishings). Each room is different. The hotel has a restaurant in the village, and there are a few other restaurants and small shops as well. I would suggest taking advantage of the local experiences (cooking or weaving classes). There are storefronts in the village that offer local hiking information. The village is about 30 - 40 minutes from the larger city of L'Aquila. The idea of bringing tourists to an albergo diffuso in small Italian village that would otherwise be like so many others, losing their young population, is commendable.

The idea of a hotel ‘diffuso’ is genial! We stayed here for 2 nights in Aug 2021. The rooms are spread out in the village (worth a visit if not staying overnight) and makes you feel as if you have travelled back in time. Original features of the rooms are maintained and modern comforts added sympathetically. Don’t expect perfectly decorated rooms, it feels like the precious owners have just moved out. The bathrooms are open plan to the room so it’s more suited for couples and singles or very good friends! We ate at the hotel restaurant a 10 min walk from our rooms. Food excellent and the atmosphere was enchanting. Our dog Frida even got a welcome pack with a dog bed, water bowl and a box of goodies! That the first time that has ever happens. Overall a special place to spend a few relaxing days.

The history behind the walls of those rooms can be felt from the moment you enter on your accommodation. It’s so simple yet so elegant, I wish the world had more hotels like Sextantio, the care to keep original features and yet give you the modern luxuries is amazing. I feel so lucky to have experienced both Sextantio (Matera and Abruzzo) and can’t decide which one is more special. Love the food as well and the staff is very precise at what they do. 🤍

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.
