Hotel of the week: Faro Capo-Spartivento, Sardinia, Italy

The lower two floors of this working lighthouse have been made into luxurious guest suites.

Faro Capo-Spartivento will keep a light on for you, said Heidi Mitchell in Travel + Leisure. Set on a cliff 350 feet above the Mediterranean, Italy’s “first and only” lighthouse hotel still provides a beacon for ships off Sardinia’s coast, as it has since the building was erected, in 1856. But its lower two floors now house luxurious guest suites, with barrel-vaulted ceilings and “enormous circular beds facing the sea.” Book one suite or splurge for the entire property, so you’ll have at your command the hotel’s private beaches, a cellar full of wine, and three chefs cooking up “just-caught fish.” farocapospartivento.com
