Not far from the sea, on a parched plateau intersected by low walls, the stone estate of Eremo della Giubiliana majestically stands guard.
Once inside the compound all becomes a lush refuge with gurgling water fountains, lemon trees, and a kitchen garden.
The former monks’ cells have been transformed into comfortable guest rooms. Construction is of exposed brick walls, arches, wood beams, and furnishings are of period Sicilian style: wrought iron beds and family heirlooms. The Tower Suite “Suite della Torre” is made up of two large rooms with vaulted ceilings, grand fireplace, and private garden.
Several stone cottages stand 400 meters from the main building on the estate and can serve as either hotel rooms or as self-catering units. Some of these cottages are restored 18th-century peasant homes, while newer cottages are built in the same style. All have kitchenettes, fireplaces, exposed beam ceilings, and private gardens. The views of the countryside and sea are wonderful.
Dining is in the former refectory, with traditional Sicilian dishes prepared from the estate’s own organic produce.
Flying tours of Sicily, Malta, and Tunisia. If you have your own plane, the hotel has a landing strip.
