Staying here is like staying in a film set, but you can actually go inside! We felt like we'd stepped into Game of Thrones. Of course this means that there are some rustic touches which perhaps feel a little out of sync with a luxury hotel (the bed for example....you don't exactly sink into it) but if you can get...

Most amazing travel destination. Can't wait to go back. This village was built between the 11-15th century and is being preserved as it was back then. Life there is slow, relaxed, peaceful, and full of adventure. You can hunt truffles, herd sheep, watch the shepherd's wife make yarn from the sheep wool, take cooking classes, eat wonderful food, or soak...

This was my second visit to Santo Stefano's Sextantio Albergo Diffuso. I couldn't wait to see this beautiful place again. I stayed for eight days over Christmas and it was just as magical as I remembered. I am a single traveler, and I prefer to say that I am "seasoned" rather than older. :) The staff is more than gracious...

Dear Susan, the name you have chosen for your review says it all: ''my heart''. Guests like you are the vital lymph of our Project. We imagine that it is not easy to get in tune with our radical choices and unconventional staff; the location itself is stunning...and difficult at the same time. When it happens, when sensibilities meet, magic...

This is a very special and magical place: the pictures online can't capture it. The hotel is spread out over lots of little apartments over the city, and you're high up in dramatic and beautiful mountains. I came with my fiance and we were able to light a fire in our own room. The baths were luxurious, the ceilings were...

I spend some day over new year together with my wife in this absolutely adorable hotel. From the friendly booking, the welcoming staff at the reception, the cosy rooms, to very special atmosphere that the staff have created. Keep-up the good work, well done.

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...
