Capofaro Locanda & Malvasia

Wow on the Water

What it is

An airy 27-room hideaway on a seafront cliff fringed by vineyards, with a clean-lined outdoor pool, spa gazebo in the pines, and excellent service.

What it isn't

Phoned in. Even the architecture here is authentic to the locale: inspired by the region’s Aeolian aesthetic.

What we think

When you build a hotel fronting one of the most awe-inducing ocean views on the planet (specifically: the Tyrrhenian Sea), you’d better make it a stunner. This one is evocative of its place yet thoroughly modern for today’s glitterati. What Classic Faro rooms lack in size (they’re 161 square feet) they make up for in charm: tucked along a lighthouse and equipped with private gardens, an idyllic place to while away the morning. However, we find the Suite Faro, also adjacent to the lighthouse, is very worth an upgrade, thanks to its separate living space and sprawling 430 square feet of room to roam. Did we mention the property is a member of the ultra-exclusive Relais & Châteaux network?

You're here because

The views from the outdoor pool are exactly what you imagined for your Italian island getaway.

The Moment

Dinner tonight at the hotel’s namesake restaurant is otherworldly, each bite more transportive than the last. You love the bread pudding with caramel ice cream so much you may just have to marry it. Or order it again tomorrow, anyway.
