29 rooms, 700 years of history

In Italy, you can find many historical, artistic, and cultural works of art which are very far from the twinkling and pompous splendour of classicism. Big little hidden secrets, which are so tenderly blurred and rarefied that seem an old black and white film from the Twenties. Places characterized by a very good taste, with their natural beauty they can make us live in total harmony with the world.

It is reborn thanks to Daniele Kihlgren, an Italian-Swedish entrepreneur, who literally fell in love with this magical place and turned it into Sextantio, an exclusive and high-level hotel.
