The hotel is situated in the most panoramic and peaceful area of town with stunning views across the sea and Mount Etna, yet close to the lively pedestrian area of Taormina, just a few minutes away. At Taormina hotel Villa Carlotta you'll be charmed by the winning combination of personal service and attention to detail.

For my third visit to Taormina I stayed at the elegant castle-like boutique 4 star Villa Carlotta for 3 nights in November 2010. On the first evening, when I arrived, Simona waited outside the entrance door for me, greeting me like I was a V.I.P. after I got out of the chauffeured car! WOW, I fell in love with the characteristic reception area with huge Arab windows like a dream! She took me to the roof top restaurant to meet Antonella who provided me with a welcome drink. I enjoyed drinking in the galaxy Tower lounge with the lovely ‘red’ coloured lights – very romantic! Simona took me to a very charming room with a good size luxury en-suite with lovely décor! Later on, I went to their roof top restaurant for dinner – Antonella and the waiters looked after me so well! I enjoyed Villa Carlotta's delicious home-prepared Anchovies in lemon leaves. Afterwards, I enjoyed exploring the elegant Byzantine lounge bar, as well as the aristocratic 19th Century staircases and corridors with some Vintage Roman numeral clocks that made me feel I had time-travelled into the 19th Century! The next morning, I opened my room’s curtains – WOW, what an amazing sea view at sunrise – like paradise with the palm trees! I enjoyed my breakfast on the outdoor breakfast terrace outside the roof top restaurant with a stunning sea view, Giardini Naxos Bay and snow-capped Mount Etna – the breakfast waitresses looked after everyone 1st class! That hotel has a beautiful garden and swimming pool! Taormina is a very attractive town with many shops and cafes – only a 5 mins’ walk from Villa Carlotta. I should also add that Villa Carlotta is disability aware, because they have the elevator with Braille for blind, or partially sighted guests. It has a front entrance door with wheelchair access for disabled or elderly guests. I am wholly deaf myself – they all treated me with such respect! My thanks to the owners and their staff for all their kind hospitality with great services!
