"A ten-minute walk from the center of town," this former private villa makes the most of its clifftop setting, with "spacious rooms" whose windows frame views of the Faraglioni rocks. The poolside restaurant features an "outstanding and ever-changing" à la carte menu that is nonetheless "very loyal to the ancient traditions of Italian cuisine." A gym was added last winter.
