Domaine De Murtoli
“This is such an amazing island I already can’t wait to return! There is an impressive amount of land still dedicated to farming and conservation - it is like you stepped right into a 17th century shepherd’s farm but still with all the comfort and amenities of today. There are many different villas spread throughout the grounds, the one we stayed at housed eight people (our close group of grad school friends) and it had direct access to a private beach. We absolutely loved how close the sandy white beaches were to our villa - we walked through the meadow full of olives trees every day on our way to the water.”

Exploring little old villages, lazing on gorgeous beaches with impeccable green colored sea, eating excellent fresh food you’ll wish could be duplicated at home, biking, hiking, horseback riding.
This is a wonderful place for a family or friends reunion, a special celebration or sporty/outdoorsy family holiday.
Our whole group took dinner together at the Grotto, a unique restaurant set in a cave with a big fire blazing to keep us warm. The ambiance and experience were amazing enough, just wait until you try the fresh food and fire cooked lamb and chicken!
Best time to go
Summer is the most popular time, however, each season of the year offers great things to do and see on this beautiful island. Enjoy blooming flowers, lounge at the beach, explore the vineyards or warm up next to a fire in cooler months.
They are closed annually between February 20 and March 25. Also, some of the restaurants are seasonal, with the beach restaurant not open in the winter. Animals are allowed but only at certain Villas, check with the hotel beforehand.
Rates vary per villa and season, check their site to decide which villa is right for you.
