Holiday in Taormina, Italy

Taormina is perfectly perched on the side of a mountain and for those visiting is the perfect taste of Sicilian dolce vita full of stunning ancient theatre, people watching and truly breathtaking views. The volcanic Mount Etna and the Ionian Sea provide a cinema-worthy backdrop. Medieval streets and ancient Greek theatres add to the romantic air of this town which inspired D.H. Lawrence and Truman Capote when writing. Take a cable car to the beach or walk uphill behind the church of St.Joseph for picturesque panoramic views in Europe.

Hotel Villa Ducale

This traditional aristocratic Sicilian villa has been sympathetically converted into a bespoke boutique residence with just 19 superior rooms and sumptuous suites radiating understated elegance. But the unique selling point of Villa Ducale has to be the spectacular panoramic terrace where guests enjoy stunning vistas over the expansive bay of Giardini Naxos and the imposing Mount Etna.

The expertly crafted food and drink capture local flavours and traditions too and the open-air dining is a lesson in Sicilian cuisine and culture, while Taormina itself enjoys a picture postcard-like natural environment and it’s easy to appreciate why this beautifully unspoilt seaside town has attracted poets, authors, artists and film stars for generations.
