Immerse in the local culture and get a sense of the region's history at this traditional Sicilian style hotel, decorated with bass reliefs, sculptures, hand painted doors and beautifully tiled floors, which all take influence from the Taormina coast. Relax on a sun lounger in the gardens, set right on the striking volcanic shore line or cool off by taking a swim in the outdoor sea water pool nestled across from the natural volcanic rock bay. Enjoy an aperitivo in the bar before you dine in the restaurant on the terrace overlooking the turquoise Mediterranean Sea.
The rooms are simple yet elegant and provide a fresh cool space to relax and unwind after a day spent exploring the region. On clear days you'll see the the beautiful and impressive natural phenomenon of Mount Etna as it towers above the surrounding undulating landscape. This is a great base for seeing the sights and taking an excursion to see the stunning volcano.
