Tips / Destination

There are plenty of resorts in Sicily, as well as bed and breakfasts or country retreats, but these boutique hotels offer something special.

If you are near Mount Etna, make a point of staying at Monaci delle Terre Nere. It’s out in the countryside and set in a lovely garden, which adds to a feeling of tranquility. Relax by the pool, take a yoga class or sip on some cocktails at the on-site bar.

Le Case dello Zodiaco in Modica Alta is an interesting place, with rooms and apartments set over different buildings in the city. The concept is known locally as an albergo diffuso, and it helps guests feel as though they are living like locals.

Escape the hustle and bustle of Palermo by booking a stay at BB22 rooms and apartments. It’s right by the Moncada Palace in the historic center, but it feels like a million miles away from the chaos outside the front door.

Algila’ Ortigia Charme Hotel is an elegant place housed inside an old palazzo in Ortigia, an island just off the coast of Syracuse. Check into one of the spacious doubles or splash out on the Deluxe Spa room to enjoy a private Jacuzzi on a seafront terrace.
