Hotel Villa Carlotta - Sicily, Italy
About this Chic Retreat
Hotel Villa Carlotta is a personal and sophisticated boutique hotel that provides guests with all the comforts needed to make a holiday perfect, even for the most discerning travellers. Taormina, Sicily is a beautiful place with breathtaking sea views, white sand and art & history everywhere you look. Hotel Villa Carlotta is perfect for relaxation and romance and compliments sister hotel, Hotel Villa Ducale perfectly - two of Lulu's favourite Chic Retreats. The newest addition to Villa Carlotta is 3 stunning apartments just a few steps from the hotel - perfect for those wanting a bit more privacy and independence.
The 23 rooms at Hotel Villa Carlotta are decorated in a mix of elegant and traditional furnishings with each room exuding its own charm and character and some full of romance. All rooms are no smoking. Complimentary WiFi is standard throughout this chic retreat and the rooms have flat screen tvs, dvd players, air conditioning, complimentary room service and designer products in the bathrooms. The deluxe rooms feature large bay windows that open on to balconies with outstanding sea views. The deluxe Suites (no. 12 is Lulu's favourite) feature spacious terraces which are real outdoor living rooms between the sea and the garden while the Junior Suite's elegant French balconies feature an incredible breathtaking Mediterranean view.
Regarded as the jewel in the crown of Villa Carlotta, the two-storey Tower Suite has refined furnishings in subtle shades of yellow and cream. This exclusive suite benefits from a large living room on the ground floor and a luxurious romantic bedroom with huge Arab style panoramic windows over the sea on the upper floor.
Villa Carlotta now also features 3 luxury apartments located just a few steps from the hotel. They are equipped with state-of-the-art conveniences and offer amazing value for money especially for families, small groups of friends or a couple looking for something a little bit more private. The apartments offer spacious rooms with self catering services and modern amenities that you would expect to find in a 5-star hotel. They comprise one or two elegant bedrooms with king-size beds and en-suites bathrooms located in an elegant 19th-century Italian palazzo built on three levels. Those staying in the apartements can take advantage of the many services provided by the nearby Hotel Villa Carlotta, such as concierge service, information desk including car rentals and excursions, complimentary access and use of Internet point and pool, restaurant, cocktail bar and parking (EUR 15,00) and buffet breakfast (EUR 20,00 per person).
With temperatures still in the 20's even to the end of November guests can enjoy the pool surrounded by a lush Mediterranean garden with stunning sea views during many months of the year. Places not to miss out during your Taormina stay include Mount Etna, Syracuse, Giardini-Naxos, Piazza Armerina, Catania market and its baroque centre, Aeolian islands and, of course, the several wonderful Taormina beaches. There is a complimentary shuttle to the nearby private beach where guests pay a small fee. Guests of this gorgeous Chic Retreat also have access to the nearby health club and there are tennis courts 5 minutes away.
Those guests who are happy to laze by the pool all day needn't worry as they can have light dining by the pool or in the Hotel Villa Carlotta's panoramic restaurant, one of the best restaurants in Taormina. Afternoon tea is served at this small luxury hotel and in the evening there is a contemporary lounge bar amidst Roman catacombs where guests can enjoy a cocktail or a glass of wine. The breakfast at Hotel Villa Carlotta is one of the best we have come across with incredible views.
