What can you expect of a neo-classical masterpiece, standing in an commanding setting in the beautiful island city of Syracuse? Only the best of experiences.
You may well find that staying at the Des Etrangers Hotel & Spa is one of the high points of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Sicily. Expect a symphony of neoclassical style and elegance; bedrooms with ornate friezes and wonderful classical headboards; a stylish lounge that leads out onto a tiled terrace with spectacular views over the harbour of Siracuse.
Expect, also, an entrance hall in the grand manner; with ornate marble floors, stucco and gilt work and soaring ceilings. Furnishings that reveal craftsmanship in their every detail. A restaurant that is the last word in sophistication. A glamorous bar. A pool featuring lion’s head water spouts. And – above all - a five star setting that puts you at the heart of the historic town of Syracuse.
