Fodor's Review

Suspended over the azure sea and set amid legendary rose-filled gardens, this Gothic-style castle was once home to Lord Grimthorpe and a hideaway of Greta Garbo. Its transformation into an exquisite hotel in the 1990s created guest rooms ranging from palatial to cozy—the small Peony Room is a favorite, the only one in the castle with its own terrace overlooking the bay. A newer wing has a bevy of options with sea and pool views. Furniture, artworks, and vintage art books that belonged to the lord's daughter still grace the enchanting sitting room and 19th-century Music Room. The gourmet restaurant "Il Flauto di Pan" was awarded a Michelin star in 2012.
