Dating back to 1926, La Moresca Maison de Charme has been lovingly restored to its former glory, bringing you a historic and characterful building with original features and antique furniture, set on the beautiful south coast of Sicily. Located just 250m from the beach, you have a wealth of holiday experiences to soak up, from sandy shores to the surrounding luscious greenery, to the creative and colourful culture of art, poetry and cuisine. This polished boutique hotel opens it doors and welcomes you in; experience the true spirit of Sicily at La Moresca Maison de Charme.
Embrace indulgence with two of the most traditional ingredients of romance: chocolate and wine. A visit to Modica will take you on a culinary trail of this Sicilian province, where the fragrance of chocolate is intoxicating. Discover the pleasure of the local red wine, Cerasuolo di Vittoria, be it drinking it in a local restaurant or visiting its vineyards near Piana di Vittoria. Of course, you are also situated in a stunning beachside location, so you can while away the daytime hours on the soft white sands or swimming in the sparkling crystal waters, then sit back with something sparkling and watch the sultry sunset in the evening.
La Moresca positively oozes warmth and serenity, providing the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle and indulge in both simplicity and sophistication. Mixing light and neutral décor with rich antique wooden furniture, a sense of contemporary regal grandeur runs throughout the hotel, and with only 15 guest suites, a truly intimate escape awaits you. Beautiful photography captures the soul of Sicily and tells you its love stories, and the photography of Giuseppe Leone and the paintings of Giovanni Lissandrello on the walls bring Sicily to life. A butler service is available throughout your stay, and from the rooftop terrace you can hear the sound of the church bells ringing, which will leave you utterly enchanted.
Delve into the area's rich history and lose yourself in the classical culture and magnificent Baroque architecture of the surrounding area – and the devoted team at La Moresca are only too happy to help design itineraries around art and culture, archaeology, cuisine, and even nature. For the adventurous souls, you can even opt to explore underwater, with scuba-diving excursions for you to see Roman and Buzantine shipwrecks. A trip to the town of Monterosso will allow you to peer down at the island from almost 3,000ft above sea level; a beautifully romantic view to share together as the sun goes down.
Breakfast is served in the private courtyard beneath a 150 year-old lemon tree, underneath the Sicilian morning sun. You'll have to stretch your legs for your evening meal, but there are many quaint and charming eateries to choose from, as well as a wealth of culinary experiences for you to enjoy. The power of Sicilian cuisine is in its ability to awaken your senses, so explore its traditions and feed your soul as well as your stomach. Up the slopes of the Iblei mountains you can taste hand-harvested olive oil, and The Road of Gold will take you on a journey of discovery of the area's rich dairy and cheese-making traditions.
