Il Seicento is a hostel, not a hotel: Its vocation stems from a focus on social tourism, families, modern adventurers who choose the bicycle to explore the world, travelers and leisure guests who have the pleasure to look for hospitality among the typical and quiet places like village of Sernio.
We propose to manage it in accordance with the village and nature, involving in ecological behavior and unobtrusive : included in the price of the room there is the sunset which can be enjoyed from the reading room, the silence of the grassed area, the sunny garden, the dripping cheerful fountain in the yard, the scent of grass , the color of blinding helichrysum and flavor of apples (inevitable in Valtellina!).
The hostel welcomes you in the common areas, which are intended to make it more functional and comfortable stay, but also facilitating meetings and moments of exchange that one of the purposes of the hostel.
On the ground floor there is the reception, which consists of a simple bench where you can find some of us: Is no lobby , this is a home not a hotel! There's a small shop space too which we maintain some local products to let you know the food products and handicrafts, and give you the opportunity to purchase souvenirs.
Hall of Vault
It is the heart of the hostel, which still preserves the ancient natural stone paving the vaulted roof, from which it takes its name: it is used as a breakfast room, but we also use it for conferences, concerts and events.
Located on the first floor and the space, in the reading room you can enjoy your relax moments. There are two large windows facing to the west side and there is a balcony that overlooks the small square with the big arch and the fountain .
