Overview

Hotel Villa Carlotta is a personal and sophisticated boutique hotel in Taormina, Sicily. Expect sea views, with white sand and crystal blue waters, as well as breathtaking views of Mount Etna. 

This Chic Retreat is perfect for relaxation and romance, and complements sister hotel, Hotel Villa Ducale perfectly. In fact, they are two of Lulu's favourite Italian Chic Retreats.

Villa Carlotta has three stunning apartments just a few steps from the hotel. It also has two luxury villas which are perfect for those wanting a bit more privacy and independence.

The breakfast at Hotel Villa Carlotta is one of the best we've come across, which can be enjoyed while gazing out at the incredible views. Children are accepted.

Activities

With warm temperatures lasting as late as November, you can enjoy the pool throughout the year. Surrounded by a lush Mediterranean garden and offering stunning sea views, it's the perfect place to relax with a book.

Taormina is full of fantastic places to visit, including Mount Etna, Syracuse, Giardini-Naxos, Piazza Armerina, as well as Catania market and its baroque centre. The Aeolian islands are excellent for a day trip (take a ferry from Messina), and the several Taormina beaches are a haven for tranquility and sunshine.

There is a complimentary shuttle from the hotel to the nearby private beach where guests pay a small fee. You'll also have access to the nearby health club and there are tennis courts 5 minutes away.

Dining

Hotel Villa Carlotta serves up delicious Sicilian dishes, including homemade pasta, risotto, salad and fish. The beautiful panoramic restaurant is one of the best restaurants in Taormina. For those who fancy something more casual, you can enjoy a light meal by the pool.

Breakfast is a feast with many Sicilian specialities including homemade cakes and pastries, fruits, cereals, local hams, cheeses and Sicilian dishes (the caponata is a real treat!). 

Afternoon Tea is served every day, which we highly recommend. The pastries, in particular, are delicious, cooked by the hotel's own pastry chef.

In the evening, there is a contemporary lounge bar where you can enjoy a cocktail or a glass of wine. The bar is set amidst Roman catacombs, creating a historical and authentic atmosphere.
