European royalty, Winston Churchill, and other VIPs have frequented the grand 18th-century Villa Politi; freshly renovated and now equipped with modern luxuries, it still retains its charm and elegance with rococo furnishings. High-quality service and all the trimmings are the standard. Set back from the road, the hotel is in the extensive, ancient gardens of the Latomie dei Cappuccini overlooking a small archaeological site. Some rooms come with balconies, private terraces,
and partial sea views.
