Grand Hotel Villa Igiea MGallery by Sofitel

Salita Belmonte 43, 3 km (2 miles) north of Palermo, Acquasanta, Sicily, 90142, Italy

This grande dame set in a private tropical garden at the edge of the bay—a local landmark for a century—still maintains a somewhat faded aura of luxury and comfort. It has changed hands several times in recent years but retains its essential character. A stroll around the lovely grounds reveals such relics as an ancient Greek temple at the water's edge. Large rooms are individually furnished, with the nicest having an Art Nouveau flavor. Spacious public rooms unfold onto a terrace and highly rated restaurant.
