Sextantio Albergo Diffuso - Santo Stefano di Sessanio

4 stars
Via Principe Umberto SNC, Santo Stefano di Sessanio, AQ, 67020, Italy, ‏‎1-877-214-4288
Santo Stefano di Sessanio is a fortified medieval village barely changed since it was built in the Middle Ages. It is located in the mountains of Abruzzo at 1250 meters above sea level, inside the Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga natural park and it is a classic example of an Italian medieval hill town, with perimeter walls encircling houses and squares.

The Sextantio Albergo Diffuso at Santo Stefano di Sessanio with its rooms is set in the dominating central position in the burgh. Besides their historical features and original autochthonous furnishings, the ample 27 rooms come with wood burning fireplaces and heated floors. Each room reveals the original subdivision, design and ‘arte povera’ decor. This project fully respects the local heritage of mountain people.

In the late 1800’s it was home to more than 3000 people who lived and worked on the land. In 1901, 1400 people called Santo Stefano their home, but fled to escape poverty leaving just 50 people remaining. Once a decayed and forgotten village, Santo Stefano di Sessanio has now been restored and resurrected and represents the first attempt at completely restoring and revitalization of one of Abruzzo’s ancient villages for residential purposes. Thanks to the project the population has raised to over 100 inhabitants.

Spring in this village is amazing when the wild flowers are in bloom in the Gran Sasso National Park. The summer months are hot and dry between June to September, temperatures start to cool then from October. The winter months bring snow for possible winter activities, mainly from December to February.
