This hotel is set in an old palace dating from the early 1900s and looks out onto the main square of a small town. The ground floor houses a coffee bar and a good restaurant, and there’s a secluded swimming pool in a side courtyard too.
Rooms feature original frescoes on the ceilings, a mix of antique and modern furniture and sitting areas – look out for the excellent little guide to the area that includes recommended places to eat. There are also two guest sitting rooms with comfy seating and lots of books to read.
Breakfast is in the coffee bar or out in a courtyard filled with citrus trees – homemade pastries, yogurt, granola, local cheese, cured meats, bread and boiled eggs. The restaurant is run separately but you can add the bill to your hotel stay. You’re around half an hour from some of the loveliest beaches in Italy, and there are plenty of authentic towns to explore too.
