La Moresca Hotel Review

19 Jul, 2013

La Moresca is truly a special place to stay. From impeccable service to great modern design and authentic Sicilian touches, this boutique hotel is your home away from home. 

This Maison de Charme has been redesigned by Carlomaria Grassi, its owner, with love and respect for the old building. The high ceilings of this hotel give it a lovely airy feel. You can step onto the balcony for an afternoon glass of wine – a welcome gift from the La Moresca team. Or if you book the Tower, you will have the privilege of having a private breakfast on the rooftop terrace. The tower is perfect for a couple or a small family. You will enjoy the privacy of the space. 

The breakfast glasshouse and terrace are designed with such great taste. Here you will enjoy a delicious morning coffee, watermelon, peaches and whatever else the season has to offer. Don’t miss the ricotta cheese with local honey poured on top; it is divine!

In the downstairs lounge area where you will find photos taken by the owner of La Moresca as well as old artefacts and books to read in the hot summer hours. The beach is so close that you can spend the rest of the day on the private loungers enjoying a great glass of Insolia wine, seafood and free wireless if you are a busy bee and want to keep up with your emails!

La Moresca is a great escape for a long weekend or a perfect stop on a tour around Sicily. Don’t miss the wineries in the vicinity. The Cerasuolo di Vittoria is a speciality of the region. You will want to go tasting some vino and visit the surrounding baroque towns. 

We look forward to welcoming you at our Boutique Hotel! For booking inquiries or to find out about offers, wine stays and cooking classes at La Moresca and winery visits, email
