Medieval charm with modern comfortsPosted Jul 28, 2013
Pros: history and beauty of the location, room, location, staff, amenities, price
Cons: No suggestions for improvement. Be sure to arrive early, as it can be a bit difficult to locate in the dark.
Location: Located in picturesque Gran Sasso National Park, the hotel offers easy access to castle ruins of Rocca di Calascio and Castel del Monte.
The beautifully-renovated "Laura" flat of this extended hotel retains the charming medieval character of the fairy-tale village of Santo Steffano di Sessanio. It was meticulously clean, had a comfortable bed (with good pillows), a very nice bathroom, and a reliable Wi-Fi connection. The flat boasted a nicely-equipped kitchen with a multitude of continental breakfast items including local artisanal baked goods. Proprietor Claudia was the most gracious of hosts, getting us situated and even making us reservations in a wonderful nearby restaurant featuring many Abruzzan specialties. This is an ideal place to stay to experience the beauty, history, and outstanding hospitality of the mountains of Abruzzo. Our only regret was that we had not booked a longer stay.
