The main hall is furnished with comfortable contemporary design armchairs, while the meeting/reading room has bare stone walls with windows opening onto the flourishing Mediterranean garden.
After a thorough and careful architectural restoration, this ancient “posada” – a resting place for travellers on horseback – has today become a modern hotel with every possible comfort, surrounded by a luxuriant Mediterranean-Arabian garden. The conservationist spirit of the restoration has maintained intact the historical fascination of the hotel’s original architecture, while the furnishing is inspired by contemporary design and through its minimalist lines and sober colours conjures up an elegance which is further enriched by the carefully calibrated addition of certain traditional features.
The hotel contains eight luminously peaceful and charming bedrooms, including two suites, all elegantly furnished with minimalist contemporary design, evoking the magic of the past while at the same time offering every modern comfort. Within the special setting of these rooms’ artistic and architectural beauty guests can enjoy the most technologically advanced levels of service: telephone, satellite TV, Jacuzzi, centralised fax and internet connections. All the rooms face onto a central court featuring a magnificent centuries-old carob plant. The six rooms on the ground floor all have their own private veranda looking out over the countryside.
In winter, guests have breakfast around a huge red table – an antique re-evocation of the Sicilian “buffetta” – where they can relish an assortment of sweet and savoury delights made with natural ingredients and traditional handmade local products. In the summer breakfast is served outdoors in the central patio, or on request can be served on the rooms’ private verandas.
