View Map

Spectacular 1873 resort hotel with views to the Mediterranean and Mount Etna, set in terraced gardens filled with jasmine, vines, citrus trees, cypresses and urns of scarlet geraniums. The property reopened in 2010 following a three-year renovation, but retains the alluringly genteel atmosphere of a stop on the Victorian Grand Tour. The 70 accommodations are divided between the main hotel and a villa. Deluxe Sea View Suites come with oak parquet floors, vaulted whitewashed ceilings and handsome Sicilian oil paintings. Spacious sitting rooms are exquisitely furnished; one featured a powder-blue damask sofa and several ormolu-accented stone-topped intarsia (inlaid wood) bureaus. Fine indoor/outdoor restaurant, veranda piano bar, small swimming pool and fitness center.

If you go to Sicily, be prepared for Mt. Etna to erupt. Apparently this happens all the time. We were delayed out of Catania due to "volcanic activity"! We just sucked it up and drank wine!
