Conde Nast Traveller (British edition, thus the spelling) is out with their 2006 “Hot List” of where to stay worldwide. Four Italian hotels made the cut:
- Byblos Art Hotel Villa Amista (Verona) – The hotel is likened to “a museum of modern furniture.”
- Hotel Caruso Ravello (Amalfi Coast) – It reopened last June after a major refurbishment by its new owners, Orient-Express Hotels.
- Sextantio Albergo Diffuso (Abruzzo) – This intact mountain village, a warren of cobbled lanes and steps, has been turned into guest houses.Affordable at 140 euros per night. (photo above)
- Villa Bordoni (Chianti) – This is the first four-star hotel in the Greve area.
