Constantly rated one of the best hotels on TripAdvisor in Taormina and even in Italy, Villa Carlotta is a small luxury hotel with stunning views over the Sicilian coast and Mount Etna. This aristocratic villa occupies a central location, only a 5 minute walk from Taormina’s famous Corso Umberto.
Built in 1860 of local clad stone and completely renovated in 2007, Villa Carlotta combines warm Sicilian hospitality with modern comforts and traditional Italian design, elegance and charm.
It boasts twenty-three rooms and suites and three brand new luxury apartments designed by internationally renowned Florentine interior design Studio Area Firenze. No two rooms or suites are alike. Some are richly decorated for a more intimate, inward-looking mood; others make the most of their breathtaking views. All feature superb beds and bathrooms, refined italian linens and towels and luxury designers’ toiletries. And there is still plenty of discreet 21st-century technology to keep you in touch, such as complimentary high-speed WiFi and interactive TV with movies and sport events on demand, a DVD player (complimentary multilingual DVD library at reception).
Villa Carlotta is not just a hotel, but a destination in itself.
A stunning private villa (a 5-minute drive from the Villa Carlotta) overlooking the Isola Bella can be rented for an even more exclusive stay.
In the stunning rooftop setting with 360-degree views over the Ionian sea and Mount Etna the Restaurant serves the savors of Sicily. Tasty food and elegant informal atmosphere for a casual light lunch, a romantic a la carte candlelight dinner with your partner or friends.
Breakfast at Villa Carlotta is not a simple meal but it’s a five senses experience. Based exclusively on organic local food, savoury and sweet you will eat as a true Sicilian!
The hotel features a beautiful Mediterranean garden with swimming pool, lounge-bar, and full concierge and transportation services.
