When industrialist Guido Coffa purchased a Baroque villa on a 40-acre fruit farm at the foot of Mount Etna, transforming it into Monaci delle Terre Nere one of the most sustainable hotels in Sicily wasn’t part of his plan. Yet, five years later, he’s accomplished just that. The walls are cut from local volcanic rock, the beamed ceilings are made from Etna chestnut wood, and 50 percent of the hotel’s energy is renewable. But that doesn’t mean style has been sacrificed: eight (soon to be 14) sleek rooms mix 18th-century antiques with black Louis Ghost chairs, larger-than-life paintings, and glossy red lampshades. What we loved best? The thoughtful touches, such as mini-bars stocked with regional wines and beers, and the cozy, king-size beds draped in organic-cotton linens
