Bright bougainvillea and fiery hibiscus set the tone at this historic villa, and its restaurant has sweeping views of the sea. Guest quarters, which are starting to show their age, are in the 19th-century main building or in whitewashed bungalows in the surrounding tranquil parkland. Public rooms have wood-beam ceilings and rustic-style furnishings. A minibus shuttles between the hotel and Cannetto Beach. There are also trips around the island, boat excursions to Vulcano
and Stromboli, and folklore evenings. Weekly discounts are available.
