    Our opinion

    Hotel Baglio della Luna is a very pretty, characteristic hotel with wonderful views over the Valley.

    Hotel description

    Hotel Baglio della Luna, based around a distinctive 13th Century tower in Agrigento, has been beautifully converted to accommodate 24 guest rooms. On entering the hotel, you are greeted by a charming courtyard where pots of flowers add splashes of colour and a gazebo offers a shady corner, ideal for relaxing with a drink. The Hotel Baglio della Luna is situated in a secluded and peaceful position just a mile from the Valley of the Temples. From its well tended gardens and from the terrace of its popular restaurant specialising in Sicilian cuisine, one can enjoy marvellous views over the Valley and of the sea beyond. The original tower houses several suites and here a spiral staircase leads up to the lovely rooftop sun terrace. The other bedrooms, situated in a separate adjacent wing, are decorated in summery patterned fabrics and have furniture of rich wood, many items of which are antique. Interesting antique pieces are also to be found in the cosy public rooms of the Baglio della Luna, such as the lounge, bar and restaurant where the atmosphere of a traditional Sicilian home has been skilfully created. After an intensive day’s sightseeing guests may wish to take a cooling dip in the sea which is just 300 metres from the hotel.
