For a touch of Sicilian magic, look no further than Donna Coraly Resort, a private villa set in a 600 year old fortified estate.
The hotel’s claim to fame is that it was here that the armistice between Italy and the Allies was signed on 3 September 1943. The estate has belonged to the aristocratic Grande family for centuries and boasts a timeless style.
Set between the island’s best beaches and its splendid Baroque towns like Noto, the resort can arrange trips to the protected reserves, tiny hidden restaurants and help you get under the skin of Sicily.
This all suite resort mixes 18th-century furniture and gorgeous contemporary art with beautiful tiled floors and elegant French doors into private gardens. Suites are light, classic and unique. It now also has a mini spa where you can be pampered in peace.
A private chef can be arranged to cook lunch and/or dinner, using local seasonal ingredients. At breakfast tuck into a spread of homemade organic pastries with jam.
While the hotel doesn’t have a bar as such there are complimentary sunset aperitifs every day.
Lounge by the pool, take in the impressive kitchen gardens or relax with a private yoga class. The resort can arrange in-house activities and tickets to events such as the Greek theatre or classical concerts.
