Originally built as the elegant hunting lodge of the Prince of Belmonte, whose descendents still live in a wing of the building, the palazzo has recently been transformed into a luxurious coastal retreat, which still conserves the atmosphere of a private dwelling.
Guests can swim in the hotel's swimming pool or in the sea, this latter accessed by way of a pretty pathway through the pine trees, hibiscus, and bougainvilleas which leads directly to Palazzo Belmonte's private beach.
Something special? Sail to the nearby island of Licosa, or join the local fishermen on a nocturnal fishing trip!
