Andrea and Rosaria Quartucci have fashioned a family villa into a warm and stylish getaway perched high on a hillside above the town, with flower-planted terraces, Mediterranenan gardens, and extraordinary eagle’s-nest views that extend as far as Calabria. Distinctive rooms and suites, in the villa and a house across the road, are done in Sicilian chic, with extremely comfortable furnishings set against warm hues that play off terracotta floors; they are enlivened with beams, arches, and other stylish architectural details, equipped with luxurious baths, and fitted out with fine linens and works by local artists. Service is exceedingly warm and personal, and a lavish buffet breakfast and complimentary sunset cocktails, accompanied by a spread of Sicilian appetizers, are served on a living-room-like terrace; lunch and dinner are available on request. The hotel has no pool, but there’s a Jacuzzi, and a shuttle makes a run to a private beach (and also to town).
