Our Rooms

Design Rooms in our Hotel in Abruzzo

The interior design of our rooms is inspired by pictures that Paul Scheuermeier, Swiss linguist, took in Abruzzo in the 20s of twentieth century. To preserve the unity of the interior aesthetic-affective and avoid the over-use of contemporary elements, we used native objects, often stored in museums, and ancient and traditional local materials The search for the archaic soul of these spaces has led to the preservation of small windows, the dim light, the uneven floors and the choice of single details, such as handmade soaps, made from olive oil and products strictly according to traditional methods. The only “poetic license”, is the choice of contemporary sanitary ware, sober, geometric and with an extremely recognizable design.

Each room is equipped with:

Wool mattress placed on a wooden plank which is based on a wrought iron structure. Blankets with patterns from the regional tradition and spun on a Nineteenth Century loom, made of naturally dyed wool. Handmade soaps made with olive oil and beeswax through hot mixing method, without foaming agents and surfactants. Handcrafted candles. All the products that can be found in the rooms were made exclusively for Sextantio and can be bought at our Bottega dell’Artigianato Domestica.
