Its perch above a private beach is a curious (yet spectacular) setting for a stately home with extensive grounds. The current Principe di Belmonte occupies part of the complex, built in the 17th century as a hunting lodge; the rest is rented to a mainly British clientele, no surprise given its aristocratic charm. The main palazzo houses guest rooms ranging from the elegant to the rustic; two new garden villas are divided into double rooms and suites. A walk through hibiscus, lemon trees, and dwarf palms leads to the swimming pool and restaurant terrace. (All bookings require a minimum three-night stay.)
