We booked a couple of days last month at short notice, encouraged by the fantastic reviews on here. Thanks TA, it was a delight. The greeting could not be warmer and the room was large, comfortable, clean and tasteful. There was a little welcoming carafe of local wine with snacks, which was a lovely touch, and (please note fellow Brits) the kettle and selection of teas was a nice surprise. Bathroom was huge with a great shower and nice toiletries, and the bucolic location makes for a wonderful nights sleep.
Breakfast was fantastic, the usual you would expect, with eggs and bacon, plus a tempting variety of home baked sweet treats. Between sightseeing activities we managed some time by the stunning pool (with spa) and had a huge amount of fun taking a spin on their vintage bicycle rickshaw. Bikes are also available, plus gym equipment and barbecue facilities.
All of this is enough for us to consider Artemisia the loveliest of all hotels we stayed in during our Sicilian trip. However, the utter charm and helpfulness of the team here take the resort into a different league. They simply cannot do enough to make your stay pleasurable. Our last morning was my birthday and the girls came out onto the terrace singing Happy Birthday with the most beautiful cake you could ever wish for. It was a joyful end to a short but perfect stay and a memory I will always cherish.
We are loathe to make any criticism of this place, but you do really need a car as there is no restaurant on site. However, they have not been open long and we understand that they are planning to build one, which will then truly make the Artemisia the perfect retreat. We would love to return for a longer stay in a year or two to see how the resort, and the gardens, have blossomed.
If you can't already guess, we cannot recommend the Artemisia and their hospitality highly enough. Book here if you can.
