With a superlative panoramic view over the Bay of Cartaromana, with the Castello Aragonese posing front and center, the Antonio offers a quiet haven five minutes from the crowds. Direct access to the sea is a few private steps away from the casual whitewashed villa, though sunbeds abound at several garden levels, so most guests tend not to stray too far. Guest rooms are basic, but all have air-conditioning and sea views. Owner Antonio's brother Giovanni is a sculptor—his
granite and marble works are scattered around the flower-decked terraces, and his studio is in the square by the hotel.
