A couple of nights spent at the Sextantio Albergo Diffuso in the Abuzzo region of Italy means experiencing something completely out of the ordinary. This much can be promised: this historic honeymoon hotel is one of the most fascinating accommodations you’ll ever encounter.
On a motorcycle tour through the Abruzzo, Daniele Kihlgren, the son of Milanese industrialists, fell in love with the derelict mountain village of Santo Stefano and came up with an unbelievable idea. He planned and opened a historic hotel with real medieval features. Housed in several buildings of the lovely fortified mountain hamlet, the romantic hotel reflects the simple abodes from several centuries ago. Surprisingly they are fitted with perfectly hidden room technology, which allows for WiFi and underfloor heating while sleek Philippe-Starck bathrooms turn the archaically furnished rooms into true luxury accommodations.
