Small and boutique hotels

Some of our most characterful hotels are also some of our smallest hotels: historic Tuscan villas with Neo-classical gardens; boutique stays with individually decorated rooms; family hotels that run on Italian hospitality; rural Trulli and Masserie farmhouses; and even a Sassi cave dwelling kitted out with modern minimalist furnishings.

Browse our collection of small and boutique hotels to find a place that really gets you under the skin of Italy. They’re scattered all over the country, so you could wind up bedding down anywhere from sky-high Ravello to the deep south of Sicily.
