Villa Neri Resort (Sicily, Italy). Villa Neri is more like, well, a villa — albeit a modern one — with spacious, well-appointed guest rooms, a thoroughly civilized dining room, well-tended gardens and quiet courtyards. But the aesthetic is surprisingly minimalist for the Sicilian countryside. Instead of romantic archways and antiques, the lobby has sleek ivory tile, coffered ceilings, and black modular furniture. Upstairs, some guest rooms are similarly modern, with floating beds.
