  • Overview
    Introduction

    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, parasols, showers, solariums, lounge bars and restaurants. A complimentary shuttle service to reach these beaches can be organised upon arrangement with the hotel’s reception.

    Taormina, with its Greek Theatre and Arab buildings, is only 15 minutes walk from the hotel. With luxury boutiques, cafes and traditional restaurants, it is 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 one of the best in the region. Expect fresh fruits, homemade cakes and pastries among other delights.

    Home-made Sicilian dishes are served at lunch and dinner and there is an extensive wine list to choose from. Sunset cocktails are served every evening with complimentary Sicilian appetizers.

    Don't miss the complimentary Afternoon Tea and coffee, served at 5pm with a wonderful array of Sicilian cakes and biscuits!
