Sextantio Albergo Diffuso

90 Editor Rating
Scale of 90-100

Unique hotel located at an elevation of 4,100 feet within the Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga National Park in the fortified medieval village of Santo Stefano di Sessanio. The 29 accommodations are dispersed among formerly abandoned stoned houses of an ancient village that have been painstakingly brought back to life by visionary hotelier Daniele Kihlgren. Rooms are tastefully appointed with locally inspired design details such as handwoven Abruzzese coverlets, venerable furniture and an abundance of candles but have been modernized to comprise Philippe Starck-designed baths and extremely comfortable beds (no TVs or phones). An excellent restaurant serves traditional Abruzzese cuisine using time-honored recipes and regional ingredients in an atmospheric dining room dominated by two large stone ceiling arches and a central fireplace. Wine tastings are offered in an ancient cellar; cooking, weaving and soap-making classes can be arranged.
