Overview

Multi award-winning Hotel Villa Ducale is one of our Founder, Lulu's favourite boutique hotels in Sicily. It enjoys one of the best positions in Taormina, immersed in nature between the sea and Mount Etna.

The hotel is set in an original aristocratic Sicilian villa, maintaining authentic interiors and materials. Wrought iron, painted ceramics and terracotta create a warm and inviting atmosphere. This Chic Retreat offers incredible views, with the stunning Mount Etna on one side, and crystal blue waters on the other. 

Activities

Guests at Hotel Villa Ducale have access to private beaches, renowned for their imposing rocks and beautiful sands. The beaches are fully-equipped with changing rooms, sunbeds and parasols, showers, solariums, lounge bars and restaurants. Upon arrangement with hotel’s reception, a complimentary shuttle service to reach these beaches can be organised

Taormina, with its Greek Theatre and Arab buildings is only 15 minutes walk from the hotel. With luxury boutiques, cafes and traditional restaurants, it's the perfect place to get lost in. 

If you fancy venturing further afield, Castelmola, an ancient Medieval village, is nearby. The enchanting Isolabella is also a beautiful place for a stroll. Best of all is Mount Etna, which not only offers an exhilarating climb of the volcano but also some great restaurants.

If you want to stay closer to home you can enjoy the Jacuzzi in the Mediterranean garden, and there's a complimentary shuttle service to the beach as well as to the centre of the town. 

Dining

Breakfast at Hotel Villa Ducale is served on the terrace, which offers stunning views across the sea and the garden. The breakfast is famous throughout Taormina as some of the best in the region. Expect fresh fruits, homemade cakes and pastries among other delights.
