We had the opportunity to stay at Sextantio last week for a few nights. The hotel is like no other and takes you away from current lifestyle, news and the world in general. You become one with eh community of a few who choose to live or work there. This is not a hotel but an experience for those looking...

Sextantio in St. Stefano di Sessanio is an extraordinay place: like stepping back in time to stay in an "authentic" peasant house of the middle ages - but with all the mod-cons including underfloor heating, designer accessories and wifi. It's like no other hotel you've ever stayed in - all the "rooms" are different, we descended a cliff-like stair to...

Comfortable rooms in unique restored medieval buildings - the rooms are spread throughout the town in separate buildings. There are so many lovely touches like homemade soap and original wooden furniture. Breakfast is located in the restaurant the hotel runs. A lovely village up in the hills that make you understand some of what used to be here.

I could not recommend staying at Sextantio Albergo Diffuso enough, and felt compelled to leave a review on trip advisor for the first time because of it. If you're looking for the traditional five star luxury hotel experience, then this is not for you. However, if you're looking to be apart of a living, breathing restoration project and stay in...

I am finding it hard to decide on a rating for Sextantio and understand the polarisation of other reviewers' ratings. I have gone for 4 points because to stay here is a special experience. The concept is great, but the balance is not quite right. We liked the crisp linen and hand woven textiles and appreciated the modern plumbing and...

This "hotel" is part of an ongoing restoration project of a medieval village. What has been completed so far is fabulous. The look and atmosphere of the past complete with all the modern conveniences. The hotel is comprised of rooms in different buildings and the bar/cocktail lounge is down the cobblestone street, under an arch, and in the building on...

You've never stayed in such an interesting place! A few miles from where spaghetti westerns were shot, there's this hotel made of multiple medieval homes. Rock floors. Latches. Heavy wood doors. A civilized taste of adventure and a healthy chuck of history and restoration. Food was simple but good. Room and dining room are rock authentic. You'll tell your friends...

Absolutely stunning rustic rooms in centuries-old buildings. We were happy having had cold rainy weather so we could enjoy the cosy room with fireplace and bathtub some more. The food is down to earth, with homemade ricotta, the best salumi platter I have tasted so far (and I've had quite some) and delicious mains (try the lamb if it’s still...

This review is one of true appreciation of not only the amazing hotel and town but also the staff who were unexpainably helpful!

My husband and I stayed at Sextantio Albergo Diffuso one night while touring around Italy for our honeymoon. We chose this place specifically because it was unique and gave us an opportunity to experience some of the history of rural Italy that we wouldn't experience in the same way in Rome, Venice, or Florence. Like many of the other review...
