“Cas'almare, on the little island of Favignana off Sicily's west coast, is the epitome of simple beach chic. The six bedrooms have been carefully designed in a minimalist fashion. The look is simple, clean and fresh, but that doesn't mean they've skipped on quality. You'll find crisp linens, cherry wood parquet floors and enormous bathtubs hewn from local rock. The hotel has been created from old fishermen's cottages and the architecture has a slightly Moroccan feel to it. However the piece de resistance really is Cas'almare's location. The sea is so near you can almost touch it, and you can certainly hear the waves gently lapping against the rocks just outside your bedroom window. It is quite simply a dreamy spot - especially with a glass of something white and cold! If you want to explore further afield or pop into town for a drink or dinner, you can borrow a bike, but really why move, especially when there's dinner available on request? Favignana can be a busy spot especially with day trippers in the summer months and Cas'almare provides a stylish haven from the hordes.”

The beautifully designed, family-run five-bedroom Cas’almare is right on the sea and has been fashioned from restored fishermen’s cottages....There is a large skippered speedboat available to whisk you off to secluded bays or to one of the neighbouring islands at a moment’s notice.
