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 Italian design hotel, Hotel Villa Ducale perfectly - two of Lulu's favourite Italian Chic Retreats. The newest addition to Villa Carlotta is 3 stunning apartments just a few steps from the hotel and 2 super luxury villas - perfect for those wanting a bit more privacy and independence.
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.
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.
