On a hilltop in southwestern Sicily lies a city of archaeological riches unsurpassed in the Mediterranean: welcome to Agrigento, best known for the Valley of the Temples. The ruins make for sensational viewing – and exploring them can give you sore soles. So you’ll need a special place to lay your head and rest your feet afterwards. Where to stay? We say try one of these – and book your stay with Culture Trip.

On a promontory of palms jutting into the Med is this ochre-walled villa. It’s just a five-minute drive from the Valley of the Temples, where the columned Hellenic structures leave visitors speechless. After a morning wandering the ruins, retreat to Casa Realia’s shady gardens: egg-shaped chairs dangle among olive trees and oversized terracotta urns, there’s a cool slab of a communal pool, and six elegant rooms blend marble fireplaces with hip deco furniture. The friendly owners, residing in one wing, are on hand to dispense local knowledge, as you fuel up on Sicilian pastries, fresh figs and cheeses for breakfast.

You should book in here for the knockout views alone – especially at night, when the Valley of the Temples is illuminated graphically against an inky sky. By day, the archaeological wonder is 15 minutes away on foot: tick off the sights, then head back to the hotel’s scented gardens to rest with an aperitif among lemon, almond and fig trees. Rooms are simple but spacious, in soothing neutral hues, with ornate 19th-century Sicilian furniture and jewel-toned persian rugs adding a touch of flair.

This cool white-and-glass hilltop hideout gazes towards the imposing Temple of Juno, with its mighty Doric columns. Contemplate the view as you bob in the pool; better still, upgrade to a deluxe room – each has a private plunge pool. The 22 rooms are essays in pared-down chic, with clean, modern lines and photographic prints on walls. There’s a small spa for post-valley pampering and a superb restaurant with a focus on organic, home-grown ingredients. If you’re a culinary keenie, book a session on Mediterranean flavours with stellar chef Max Ballarò.

A narrow lane winds through the sun-dappled countryside to this fortified farmhouse-turned-luxe-hotel. Expect bags of character – not least the Medieval watchtower conversion, a unique place to lay your head. The 23 rooms cluster around an ivy-clad courtyard, each a clever blend of antiques, artworks and hand-painted tiles; modernity intrudes subtly but welcomely with sleek bathrooms, sink-in mattresses and air conditioning. Dinner under the stars on the sweeping stone terrace is perfect for a romantic moment, with the iconic temples silhouetted at sunset.

You might not expect a working olive farm to be moonlighting as an international class hotel, but Mandranova does just that – and brilliantly. In a landscape of silver-green olive groves and puttering tractors, the deal is: 16 classy rooms of sharp Starck furniture and florid majolica floor tiles. Allow lots of time for the deep, spring-fed pool and the excellent home-cooked meals delivered by your hosts, Silvia and Giuseppe. (Top tip: go for the half-board option.) The temples in Agrigento are a 30-minute drive away. Closer to home, you’ll find a string of quiet, unspoiled beaches.
