Escape to a rustic-chic hotel in a medieval Italian hilltop town, including breakfast, bike hire, plus flights and car hire

  • Down Santo Stefano di Sessanio’s narrow cobblestone streets, you’ll find the incredible Sextantio Albergo Diffuso. Located in a village within the Gran Sasso e Monti della Laga National Park, this medieval hill town sits in the highest region of the Apennines. It's small wonder it carries a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

  • Rustic rooms are spread along narrow, cobblestone streets. Beneath quaint archways and stone doorways, expect traditionally dim lighting, original small windows and uneven floors. All are filled with local arts and crafts and rich antique furnishings, such as blankets with classic regional patterns spun on 19th-century looms. 

  • Restaurant Locanda sotto gli Archi serves up fantastic Abruzzese cuisine in a rustic 16th-century building, with tables set beneath a stone arch. For breakfast, the spread includes lovely homemade tarts, cakes and pastries, while for tea time you've the traditional Tisaneria offering warm drinks and cakes. Elsewhere, Il Cantinone is the hotel’s cosy wine cellar, holding local full-bodied reds and fantastic antipasti.
