Falconara Charming House & Resort is the latest stylish addition to the new generation of Sicilian boutique hotels—a place known for grande dame, slightly fusty properties, or mom and pop bed & breakfasts. Despite its proximity to the highway and a stretch of built-up coastline, the new hideaway on the sea actually has an enviable position looking onto a private beach and a number of undeveloped coves. The one building in front of the property is a castle (which houses some of the bedrooms) that only adds to the vista, and the grounds also have a pretty pool and little beach club. The 65 rooms are simple but chic, with black stone floors, dark wood four-poster beds, and relatively small bathrooms that come with tubs and oversize showerheads—ask for a room with a terrace that looks onto the water. The restaurant is well priced and the bar area stylish, with oversize armchairs and chaises—though they could lose the pianist playing over recorded music. Perhaps best of all, service is warm and quick.

From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:

You'd be forgiven for hesitating as you pull up to Falconara, off a main highway and not far from the industrial eyesore of Gela. Once you're inside the gates, however, things look up considerably. The hotel's backdrop is a medieval castle and a private beach with pristine coves-a rarity on Sicily's overbuilt coastline. Of the 65 rooms, the 39 in the newly built Club House are done in a spartan yet chic style, with four-poster beds and rattan chaise longues. Oversized furniture is scattered throughout, and there's a lovely pool, though the young vegetation does not yet provide proper screening from the road. The restaurant is both inexpensive and good, and staff are welcoming. This is a spot for beach lovers rather than those on an extensive sightseeing schedule.
