Sextantio Le Grotte Della Civita
Cannot speak highly enough of this hotel. The friendliness of the staff, the otherworldly cavern room, the meal service, the fireplace at aperitifs, that view... The whole thing felt once in a lifetime.

Lovely place, fantastic location
Caves very atmospheric. Staff fantastic, extremely helpful. Gorgeous views. Despite heat caves remain cool, only dimly lit with lamps and candles. Beds very comfortable. We had 3 caves. One had bath in room plus a shower, the other two had a bath or shower. Breakfast included which was nice though not a lot of choice. You will struggle if not very mobile due to steps between levels and uneven cave floors.

Where do I start? I have too many amazing things to say about this 'hotel' We arrived around 10pm and were given a tour and told the history of the caves and this hotel they must've been waiting for us to arrive but we were not rushed at all! Given a free upgrade to our room which was just phenomenal! So cosy and warm and everything so intimately designed to keep the cave 'genuine' it was so beautiful we could've stayed in the cave all weekend and not gone outside! Breakfast was lovely and all local produce but you can request eggs etc if you want - we didn't. The coffee was to die for!! The staff went out of their way to help you and were so genuine and friendly! We asked for a map and woo it asking the lady highlighted places of interest and what times they were open til so we wouldn't miss out. I could go on forever about this amazing place!!!

Wow! Loved it!
What an amazing place! It is absolutely fabulous and the scenery is breathtaking. I would recommend this hotel and its location to everyone. The cave rooms are so lovely, lots of candles and a sunken bath, it felt a very magical Place to stay. Would love to return one day.
