Inspired by A Bigger Splash, set on the Sicilian island of Pantelleria and starring Tilda Swinton and Ralph Fiennes, Sawday’s Nicole Franchini selects 10 gorgeous Sicilian retreats
Grapes and olives have been harvested at this traditional family farm since the 18th century. Some of the warehouses that stored their produce are now charming en suite rooms, but there’s a strong sense of continuity with the past here. Old photos of the family cover the walls of the atmospheric sitting room, a farm museum exhibits antique tools and you can still sample the Baglio’s oil, wine and honey in the rustic restaurant. Rooms are divided between the farmhouse and outbuildings: all combine modern comforts with original features including exposed-stone walls, ancient beams and wooden floors. Head out to explore or stay put and wander around the lush gardens, take a dip in the pool, or visit the spa.
