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.

This is the third occasion that Antonio has organised an Italian holiday for me. As it was a Birthday celebration involving a party of 10, the arrangements were complex, involving a villa, guides and attendance at the Palio on July 2nd. Without exception everything went exactly as planned. The recommended villa on the Montestigliano Estate, south west of Siena, was wonderful. Our guide made sure we had a full understanding of the history and culture of the Palio which meant that, with a spectacular view over the Campo from the apartment booked by Antonio, we were able to appreciate the event that much more. We shall certainly be going back to Italy with Expertoitaly.read more

Antonio with his meticulous planning and caring service has been solely responsible for the best Italian holidays we have had. His ability to offer excellent hotel accommodation which provides for every need and requirement is second to none . Hotels that are not main stream , that provide high quality of service in excellent locations are one of Antonio’s strength. It’s great to have a provider that know and understands his market.

July 2018 _________________________________ Have just completed another 10 day holiday arranged by Antonio at Expert to Italy. We went with Antonio's suggestion and spent 2 days at Matera and then the remainder in Pisciotta in the Cilento. Matera was amazing and felt completely different to anywhere else we have been in Italy. We loved Pisciotta and the hotel was wonderful with lovely owners who were great at suggesting things to do. We visited a buffalo farm, a vinyard and tooks boats to isolated coves with lovely clear water. All arrangements were absolutely faultless. We would never have found such lovely places without Antonio! 2016 _________________________________ We have just returned from a fantastic holiday suggested no arranged by ExpertTo Italy. Once again the organisation by Antonio was flawless and everything worked perfectly. We spent 5 nights by lake Maggiore and 3 in Cogne in the Italian Alps. Both hotels and locations were fantastic - particularly the Bellvue in Cogne. Please see trip advisor if interested in the hotels as I will give a more specific review there - I'm not a fanatic reviewer but both really deserve it. We have used this company for the past 5 years and Antonio seems to have a real gift for finding fantastic hotels and matching locations to his clients. I would not usually put the level of trust in anyone to arrange holidays for me that I have with Antonio but he has delivered every time and I can unreservedly recommend his services. Italy is a beautiful country with huge variety - if you describe what you like to Antonio and let him make suggestions then you will not be disappointed. Very definitely 5 stars from me. So - Antonio and team, please keep it up! Jonread more

Antonio delivered more than expected! Our family of four stayed at two beautiful villa's on the Amalfi Coast. Both of the locations were top class. Antonio provided excellent service and was always available if we had questions about the details of our trip. He was easy to work with and we would recommend his services to others traveling to Italy.read more
