Our favourite rooms
Each room has a unique name and design. All can be converted into king-size beds from two twins, upon request. The Poligalia and Lavanda, in the main house, each have a private terrace overlooking the beautiful grounds. Those looking for added privacy should request the Monte Toro in the private tower.
The 26-metre outdoor infinity pool is heated by the Mediterranean sun and surrounded by lush lawns. Shaded lounge chairs dot one side.
The spa occupies a suite in the converted stable, offering a range of massages, facials and reiki treatments, using Li'Tya aromatherapy products.
A stylish sunhat is mandatory for anyone unaccustomed to the intense Mediterranean rays.
Keep an eye out for local wildlife, including tortoises, geckos, sea birds and the resident donkeys.
Children over 12 are welcome. One extra bed (€40 a night; suitable for children aged 12 to 17) can be added to all rooms subject to availability.
The hotel serves home-grown and locally sourced food whenever possible, including vegetables from the kitchen garden and eggs from the free-range hens; water is solar-heated.
