Sextantio Le Grotte della Civita  - It's easy to see why this tops the list of our recommended hotels.  The design was carried out to perfection...honoring the rustic history while adding luxurious modern day amenities.  The sensuous ambiance and spectacular location perched high above the ravine make it ideal for a romantic get-away, an inspiring yoga retreat or a fairy tale wedding, –be it an intimate ceremony for two or a grand affair encompassing the entire hotel.  

What makes a place special to us is that oft intangible quality - the "spirit of the place" - the synergistic result of just the right elements coming together in a most magical way...Le Grotte della Civita has this in abundance.
