Castello Mortellito enjoys a grandly historic, family-sized dreamlike setting on a Sicilian hill, surrounded by sweet-scented olive and lemon trees.
Featuring nine luxurious bedrooms, and views that stretch languorously out to the Aeolian islands, there's more than a touch of magic to a stay at Castello Mortellito.
Owned for centuries by a family of aristocrats, you'll feel as though you've got your very own Sicilian castle, all to yourselves!
As you work your way through exploring your grand, soft-furnished surroundings, you'll note many unique touches that include collections of antique books, and even signed photographs of the Italian royal family.
Prefer relaxing al fresco? Then you're in luck, with an indulgent outdoor swimming pool and a choice of palm-fringed, sun-soaked terraces to enjoy a sparkling drink from.
If you can tear yourselves away, there is plenty to see and do in the surrounding area, from dining out at the local restaurant, to hopping on a steamboat to see those Aeolian islands up close. Yet we've got a feeling you'll be more than happy to seclude yourselves away in your castle-style home, all holiday long.
