The namesake Henry was a now-departed friend of the owners, and he could not have a nicer legacy than this distinctive seaside palazzo at the southern edge of Ortigia. Several terraces, including a few private spaces off some of the rooms, look over the sea, while salons filled with antiques and artifacts are homily atmospheric. Guest quarters are tucked away on several floors and have beams, tile floors, and character-filled furnishings that further enhance the sense that you’re staying with a cultured Sicilian uncle.
