To start planning your holiday to Hotel Villa Carlotta


Hotel Villa Carlotta is an authentic boutique property in the heart of Taormina in Sicily. Within easy walking distance to the main sights of the city, it is also perfectly located to visit Mount Etna.

Hotel Villa Carlotta is a boutique style property in the heart of the famous Sicilian town of Taormina. Villa Carlotta has a reputation as a home away from home and guests find themselves returning year after year to stay in this beautiful location.

Sister property to Villa Ducale in the upper reaches of Taormina, this family owned property prides itself on creating a homey atmosphere and catering to each guest’s every need. Located directly next to the beautiful public gardens, Villa Comunale Di Taormina, and just a short walk away from the centre of town and the sea, Villa Carlotta could not be more well-located. Meals with a view are a regular occurrence at the villa as the restaurant contains a large balcony from which you can enjoy your meal and the panoramic views of the Mazarro Bay.

Boats in and out of the bay can easily be arranged for a more up close and personal view of the surrounding waters. Fall in love with the Tower Lounge, a well-decorated and plush room at the top of the villa. Take your coffee, tea, or aperitif from this room and settle in with one of the books from the tower’s library, or simply spend an afternoon gazing out of the panoramic windows onto the town and the bay.
