Fodor's Expert Review Mezzatorre Resort & Spa

Via Mezzatorre 23, Forio, Campania, 80075, Italy

Far from the madding, sunburned crowds—in a sleekly renovated former fortress on Punta Cornacchia above the Bay of San Montano—this luxurious getaway tempts its privileged guests to stay put and relax, with a glamorous heated pool overlooking a storybook cove, fine restaurants, spa treatments, and hundreds of pretty pine and pomegranate trees. Inside, everything is white-on-white, accented with antiques and ancestral portraits. Most guest rooms are in the 16th-century Saracen tower. The restaurants—Chandelier (haute cucina, evenings only) and the informal Sciué Sciué—are open to nonguests by reservation.
