Overview

Stylish and contemporary but with a strong sense of history, the Villa Carlotta sits amidst lush terraced gardens with views through spiky cypress trees towards the Ionian Sea. While the imposing form of Mount Etna looms in the background, the boutiques, winding streets and café-fringed main piazza in Taormina’s lively town centre are just a short walk away.

 

The 19th century building still retains the feel of an aristocratic family home with wrought-iron balconies, stone walls and classic red-tiled roofs, surrounded by pretty lemon-scented gardens with a pool.

 

Service is exceptional: think luxury boutique hotel attention to detail combined with the relaxed atmosphere of staying at a family friend’s house.

Rooms

Antique furniture fills the 23 elegant bedrooms, many of which have small ‘standing’ balconies with either a garden or sea view while the Deluxe Suites have sea view terraces with sun loungers. An additional four apartments and a three-bedroom villa are set slightly away from the hotel.

Dining

Start your day with the hotel’s spectacular breakfast buffet – pistachio-topped yoghurt, fruit, cheeses, cold meats, cakes, tarts and trays piled high with freshly-baked patisserie - accompanied by rooftop views over the bay. Dinner is also served on the rooftop restaurant.

 

With a history of hosting Emperors and Kings, Taormina is where well-heeled Italians come to play. At night, they dine in Sicily's best restaurants - foodies flock to the two-Michelin-starred Principe Cerami for chef Massimo Mantarro's skills of combining a 0km food policy with taste and visual presentation, while socialites make for Otto Geleng where cocktails and granitas come with views of the Bay of Naxos and Mt Etna.
