Today’s Valentine’s escape has plenty of historic appeal: the abandoned village Sextantio, a scenic Apennine getaway, situated in the Basilicata Mountains. The remote destination, built solely from local materials, has been lovingly preserved to provide an authentic stay in the historic villages.
With a goal not to betray the soul of the building, the furnishings have been chosen sparsely and realistically, using locally crafted bed linen in local styles and colours. Modern technology is disguised and new additions, such as the bathrooms, are built to reflect the simple nature of the destination.
For those simply seeking to spend quality time with their loved one this Valentine’s day, the Sextantio village provides the opportunity for a getaway without distraction in the remote mountains of Basilicata.
