Columns and carob trees
A 19th-century masseria, Dimora delle Balze is a Sicilian sensation of stonework, terracotta and local flavour. Historical elements pop up throughout the space, including in the restored courtyards and terraces lined with ancient columns, with columns setting the scene by the breakfast terrace. Each of the 11 rooms is named for a work by a Sicilian artist and set in immaculately restored buildings across the property. Many rooms have terraces facing the 27-hectare estate of gardens, orchards and the rolling green hills beyond the hotel that make up the Unesco-recognised Val di Noto. Many guests barely stray from the grounds, but if you've got a car, the hotel's only a 35-minute drive from Noto’s Baroque city centre.
