Sextantio Albergo Difuso, Santo Stefano di Sessanio
|Via Principe Umberto, 67020, Santo Stefano di Sessanio, L'Aquila, Abruzzo, ITALY.|
Description: Sextantio Albergo DifusoThis unique property is part of a wider project to recover and restore an abandoned village in the Abruzzo region. Located in the spectacular fortified hilltop village of Santo Stefano di Sessanio, surrounded by magnificent unspoiled countryside, Sextantio Albergo Diffuso is set in a number of respectfully restored dwellings in this ancient village.
Sextantio Albergo Diffuso is ideal for relaxed visits to this magnificent region, and guided tours can be arranged to many of the nearby landmarks and attractions, including the village of Castelli, the Rocca Calascio fortress, and the Fonte Vetica. The Albergo offers a number of exclusive services and facilities to its guests, including the Locanda Sotto gli Archi restaurant, the cantinone, a tea room and craft shops. There is also a large meeting room for exclusive and highly original business events. All these spaces have been restored with the utmost respect for the original structures, using original and recovered materials in order to maintain the ambience of these historic buildings.
Sextantio Albergo Diffuso has twenty-seven rooms and suites, all restored in the same way as the rest of the property. Besides their historical features and original furnishings, these spacious rooms come with wood burning fireplaces and heated floors. Each room maintains the original organisation, design and 'arte povera' décor of the ancient houses. This project fully respects the local heritage of the mountain people.
