Hotel Villa Ducale 4 stars
Hotel Villa Ducale Taormina
Hotel Villa Ducale is situated in what is arguably the most exclusive and panoramic part of Taormina. The villa, once belonging to members of the Sicilian aristocracy, has only recently been transformed in a charming four star hotel, yet the Villa Ducale has already received numerous hospitality awards.
The views from the property are quite breathtaking. On one side the vista extends for miles over the crystal clear sea, whilst on the other the eye is greeted by a luxurious green landscape and the vision of the magnificent mount Etna.
A wonderfully romantic place, immersed in the beauty of the Sicilian coast and rich in history and age old traditions: ideal for couples and those wishing to relax in a truly enchanting setting.
The grounds of Villa Ducale are a veritable celebration of nature. The terrace on which breakfast is served offers guests a fabulous sea view whilst the charming Mediterranean garden provides a spectacular display of the vibrant colors and sweet perfumes of this sun drenched haven.
Inside the hotel the authentic atmosphere of a Sicilian villa is created by the elegant traditional furniture and fabulous terracotta floor tiles. The wonderfully romantic guest rooms are all individually decorated and furnished with comfortable wrought iron beds and ceramics hand painted by local artists. Maximum comfort is guaranteed by the addition of remote controlled air conditioning, plasma satellite television, and direct phone line. Recently renovated, the spacious bathrooms are fitted with Jacuzzi tub or shower, hair dryer and phone. Each and every room in the hotel has its own private terrace with views of the sea and Mount Etna.
A vast selection of both sweet and savory Sicilian specialties is served each morning on the sea view terrace. In the garden of the hotel, a large Jacuzzi for up to six people has been installed in addition to comfortable sun beds. A free minibus service is provided for those guests wishing to visit the beautiful beach of Taormina, just 4kms away.
