A blue-shuttered Sicilian gem sitting on the fabled clifftop of Scala dei Turchi, with sea views, steps from the beach – with car hire, travel and board options

Sitting pretty on the south coast of Sicily, this Italian gem is mere steps from the fabled Scala dei Turchi, powder-white cliffs criss-crossed with steps leading to a string of emerald bays below.

With blue-shuttered windows punctuating a vanilla-hued facade, the terracotta-roofed Scala dei Turchi Resort is crammed with character, from its traditional baglio and outdoor pool nestled among tranquil gardens, to its clutch of whitewashed rooms and suites, some offering a tantalising glimpse of the sea.

There are two restaurants serving local Sicilian specialties and traditional Mediterranean dishes, as well as a laid-back bar-café overlooking the Turkish Steps and a lounge-bar with an outdoor terrace and a cluster of cosy nooks for holing up with a book.

Spend your days exploring the archaeological sites and churches peppered across this history-rich pocket of southern Sicily, from the Valley of the Temples and the house and theatre of Luigi Pirandello in Agrigento, to the crumbling Greek theatre of Eraclea Minoa and Villa Romana in Realmonte.

Accommodation

Spread across two floors in a low-slung traditional Sicilian building, the hotel's 45 rooms and suites are dreamy whitewashed spaces, shot through with soft turtle-dove and sky-blue accents. Traditional tiled floors and pale-wood furniture complete the coastal-chic picture, while a sprinkling of mod-cons are at your fingertips.

Amenities:

- Flatscreen TV
- Air conditioning
- Minibar
- Wi-Fi
- Safe

Dining

With views over the pretty gardens, the main restaurant serves an a la carte menu of local specialties and gourmet Mediterranean dishes, all washed down with the finest Sicilian wines. Alternatively, hotfoot it to La Terrazza for a flavour of the region, along with sea vistas and a warm candlelit environment, or head to the laid-back Caffé for light bites and excellent coffee, served with views of the Turkish steps carved into the cliffs' rock face. Come evening, make a beeline for the Lounge Bar, where talented mixologists rustle up innovative cocktails and local chefs knock out small plates.

Wellness

Scala Dei Turchi's outdoor pool is flanked by landscaped gardens and pretty lights creating a magical atmosphere. There's also an outdoor Jacuzzi, all within the hotel's traditional baglio - a terraced courtyard often found on Sicilian wine estates.

Location

Set on the southern coast of Sicily, Scala dei Turchi Resort is located in Realmonte, just steps from the eponymous marl cliffs, whose powder-white rockface is criss-crossed with steps leading to a string of sandy beaches below. The surrounding region is peppered with archaeological sites and beautiful churches, including the Valley of the Temples, the house and theatre of Luigi Pirandello, Villa Romana and the Greek theatre of Eraclea Minoa. The centre of Realmonte is a 30-minute walk or seven-minute drive away, and Agrigento is a 25-minute drive away.
