The splendid Sextantio Albergo Diffuso in Abruzzo

When I’ve first set my eyes on the pictures, I thought I was going to be dealing with some paintings done by famous artists. It was quite a blow for me when I realised that the place is in fact real, fully accessible, extremely welcoming actually. Nestled among low mountains, the hilltop resort provides fabulous views over Italy’s Abruzzo region.

Just around 150 kilometers away from the Fiumicino Airport in Rome, Sextantio Albergo Diffuso boasts a name that can hardly be pronounced, and that’s the only bad thing about it. The entire rest shapes out a staggering story, of a resort that can hardly be matched by anything, anywhere. Here you’ll experience traditionalism alongside romance, great relaxation tucked in a medieval village.

The place and its setting take you back in time with absolutely no effort at all, thanks to the atmosphere and designs throughout. It is set among the rolling hills of one of Italy’s most special and idyllic places – the ‘Borgo’ of Santo Stefano di Sessanio. The medieval village has been entirely converted into a staggering resort with cozy, contemporarily-endowed accommodations, hidden inside secluded ex-homes, with nice windows, gorgeous amenities and antique furnishing.

The place totally lacks televisions or any other amenities we call stereotypical, allowing guests to try gorgeous experiences, with low-flowing time and respected traditions. There are a total of 32 individually numbered rooms welcoming guests to full medieval lifestyles. All guests get together to eat, just like our ancestors hundreds of years ago. Just lay back, enjoy the magical scenery and the typical Italian breakfasts, and you’ll get our point.
