Diffused Hotels in Italy (Alberghi Diffusi)
The term 'Diffused Hotel' or 'Albergo Diffuso' refers to a new style of hotel stay available in Italy, where visitors can enjoy the comfort of a private house together with the facilities offered by a traditional hotel. Rather than offering rooms in a single building, these hotels offer accommodation in a variety of buildings, grouped together in a town, village or area of countryside. This kind of development is also 'eco friendly' as it avoids the construction of new multi-story buildings in favour of the sensitive restructuring and renovation of attractive farmhouses and other traditional buildings. A better term in English might be 'Hotel Hamlet'.

There are many towns and villages in Italy where inhabitants have moved away, leaving a substantial number of properties abandoned. These have been allowed to deteriorate over time, often to the point of collapse. The concept of 'Diffused Hotels' allows for a group of such properties to be renovated, with government assistance, and turned into attractive, individual, hotel accommodation of a truly unique nature. Many of these buildings are renovated in a traditional style, maintaining the character of the area and allowing the visitor to experience, first hand, the cultural richness and individual identity of the different regions of Italy. As well as providing comfortable accommodation, these 'Hotel Hamlets' provide the opportunity for visitors to really experience the Italian lifestyle of each particular region in a truly traditional way.

A great deal of effort is taken to ensure that these 'Diffused Hotels' are ecologically friendly, leading to the term 'Eco Hotels' also being used. Visitors have the comfort of their own living space, whilst being able to call upon the management of the 'Diffused Hotel' for any additional services they might need.
