Traditional Decorated Sextantio Albergo Diffuso Hotel

If you travel in the Abruzzo region, you must stop at the medieval town Santo Stefano di Sessanio . Not only history lovers will have a good this in this town, but any visitor because contractors started a project of restoration of the historical town with its specific buildings. This way you can spend your holiday imagining you are a medieval castellan. A little imagination doesn’t harm anyone.

One of the buildings which benefits of the restoration program is Sextantio Albergo Diffuso. This property has some authentic spaces which keep the medieval atmosphere. You will be hosted in a traditional room that still has some original furniture, as the fireplace and the wood ceiling. The most amazing part is how the restorers managed to combine the traditional medieval design with modern technology. The room has a floor heating system and remote-controlled illumination.

The property also has a medieval restaurant, places in some old wine cranes. The specific air is kept also here because the furniture is hand-made by the locals. You may have complete experience if you order a traditional medieval dish. Besides these great services, the Sextantio Albergo Diffuso is also great thanks to its location.

It’s close to most art and culture sites. If you’re looking for some fun, you may try to ski, horse ride or to do some hang-gliding. There’s no need to add that the view is magnificent, as the town is surrounded by the Abruzzese hills and the Apennines Mountains.
