Reviews for Sextantio Albergo Diffuso
We have had a very pleasant one night stay at this property. Upon check in, they have upgraded us to a room with a fireplace. Other have commented on the extreme firmness of the bed mattresses- it did not bother us. If you want to experience what it's like to stay in a medieval village but with all the modern amenities - THIS IS the place! Breakfast was included in our rate. We also have really liked the restaurant associated with the hotel-they only use local produce and their menu is reasonable priced and delicious! Walk around the village and emerge yourself in the atmosphere of the medieval times! Very memorable experience! Highly recommended.
This place is very very special. We went for our first wedding anniversary, and it was perfect - Romantic, Beautiful. The little town was so quaint, and the pace is slow. Little walks, gorgeous wine, delicious food, lots of naps. The hotel's unusual design works very well. The furniture is perfectly selected, the fittings lovely. Everything smells delicious! The breakfast is fantastic - fresh bread and cheeses, wonderful baked goods. We also had a massage on site which was excellent. The hotel has a little tea room and a small shop, as well as an excellent wine bar. Loved the fireplaces in the rooms. The bed is my only small concern - the hard mattresses are very authentic and very good for your back... but not super snuggly!

The hotel is situated in the heart of the Aquila mountains of Abruzzo Italy. It was an amazing experience. I loved it a lot. The room we stayed in called "le travi" was equipped with a fireplace, a tub, and a beautiful comfortable bed. The room is all wooden and was lit with candles. Super romantic and mediaeval. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The restaurants were delicious. We had a night of typical medieval food. The breakfast was super generous. The best part is the location of the hotel. It was excellent. We did a 2 hour walk to the famous Rocca calscio, a historical fortress situated 1460 m high. It was really Beautiful. Highly recommended.

This place was perfect for mine and my girlfriend's romantic break. We went in a low season period and so it felt like the place and surrounding town was all for us. When we arrived there was light snow falling which just added to character of the town. They had prepared the firewood for us and left a liquor that's made locally for us. It went down well with the stash of food we brought. They have a little restaurant in this Borgo town too serving really good food that warmed us in the wintery nights. I'd definitely return to this place again!
We loved our stay in San Stefano di Sessano, mostly thanks to the Sextantio Albergo Diffuso. Even as a proper serious adult, I couldn't help revert back to an over-imaginative child and pretend I lived in the medieval ages. The "diffused" aspect to the hotel only heightened the illusion as we felt as if we we had our only tiny little "house" above the wine bar. The town also has a million friendly dogs (and wary cats) which was also delightful. OH! And the best gelato of the trip (only three flavours but mmm). We also signed up for a truffle hunt with a local family (mum runs the tea room). Being autumn, the hike through the forest was beautiful- finding a few truffles, learning about the tradition and meeting Dory-the-dog made it a highlight of the trip. That being said, I can see how this style of hotel is not for everyone. We are a young couple on our honeymoon so having a bathroom behind a wall (rather than in another room) didn't bother us. We also didn't mind the low light, stone floor or basic decor. My husband was not a fan of the bed. The wool mattress was pretty unforgiving. But it was just a part of the charm.
