You'll find this boutique hotel on the east coast in the hilltop town of Taormina. Expect personalised service and views out to the sea and of Mount Etna. The property is comprised of rooms, suites, apartments and villas – take your pick.
It's worth noting that sister hotel Hotel Villa Ducale is just over 10 minutes' away by car.
From November to March each year the hotel facilities such as the restaurant/breakfast, pool and garden are not available for the apartments and villas. But the reception remains open from Monday to Friday, from 09:00 until 17:00.
The breakfast buffet is a sight to behold, filled with fruit, pastries, eggs, bacon, local cheese and more – enjoy your choices out on the terrace. Come evening, feast on local fish, pasta, and Sicilian plates at the on-site restaurant while admiring the panoramic views.
Apartments and Villas are booked on a self-catering basis.
What we loved...
Elegance, refinement and stunning views all wrapped up in one beautiful package. In our view, this hotel has the best breakfast in Taormina – it's a feast of homemade local delicacies, and the panoramic views are breathtaking. The charming and passionate owners are hands-on, and their attention to detail is hard to beat. The cooking course is a must if you have the time.
All of the 29 residencies (spanning rooms, suites, apartments and villas) have been elegantly decorated with a keen eye for detail.
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 Milazzo), 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 can then purchase a ticket to use the beach club services. You'll also have access to the nearby health club and there are tennis courts 5 minutes away.
Free parking is available.
