Hello dear ladies!
We have formally introduced a new feature – every month we will select a venue that we really like and we will feature it here on My Italian Wedding blog.
So if you are planning a romantic trip to Italy and would like something special, stay tuned!
The venue I choose today is called Sextantio and is situated in Stefano di Sessanio, a medieval walled village in the Abruzzo mountains which are part of the Grand Sasso Park.
What really took my attention, when I saw the photos of this stunning place, was mainly the fact that the hotel is not structured in one place but its 23 bedrooms are spread in old houses around the village!
This is indeed the result of a clever conservation project which was aimed to restore the old buildings without alterning their ancient structure.
The simplicity of the interiors is perfectly combined with the attention of special details – I love the fact that the creators of this stunning location managed to bring into new life old books, furniture, tools and fabrics!
I think it would be a perfect location for an intimate wedding! The locanda is a little restaurant which offers traditional food in a very rustic but chic setting! All food is made following traditional recipies! There is also a herb tea room (how amazing!) where you can have a brew, expecially during the winter which is quite cold over there!
