Villa Paradiso

Sicily, Taormina

  • Family-run hotel with beautiful views of Mount Etna and Bay of Naxos
  • Complimentary shuttle service to private beach club with swimming pool (Jun - Sep)

Formerly a private villa, this charming family-run hotel has retained many of the original architectural features and enjoys an enviable position with views of the sea and Mount Etna.

Dating back to 1892, the villa was carefully transformed by Salvatore Martorana into the delightful hotel that stands there today.

The guest rooms boast enchanting views over the splendid Bay of Naxos and the coast stretching from Taormina to Etna and Catania, and over the pretty municipal gardens, the tennis courts and the town of Taormina.

A complimentary shuttle bus service operates to the Paradise Beach Club at Letojanni 8 km from the hotel (Jun - Oct), which is owned by the hotel. Here guests can enjoy free entrance to the swimming pool, gardens and private beach with changing cabins. A bar, snack bar and restaurant are also available at the club.

Located in the centre of historic Taormina and adjacent to beautiful public gardens, the Villa Paradiso provides guests with an ideal location for an enjoyable stay.

About the location
Holidays in Taormina marry history and culture to form an unforgettable experience in Italy. It’s perched at the top of Monte Tauro in the foothills of Mount Etna on Sicily’s Eastern coastline, between the cities of Catania and Messina. This ancient town offers visitors a view into the past with a number of elegantly preserved historic treasures, from the grand Greek-Roman Theatre to the equally impressive Palazzo Corvaja, which are just waiting to be discovered.

You don’t have to be a history buff to make the most of everything Taormina has to offer. Alongside the historical sights there are plenty of other attractions to take in. The main street, Corso Umberto, is traffic free and home to an array of shops and restaurants to rival any in the bigger cities.

There are also plenty of seaside activities to dive into thanks to the town’s coastal setting. Adventurous travellers can try watersports like wind surfing and snorkelling, while relaxing scenic boat tours around the gorgeous capes and grottos of the Ionian Sea allow you to explore at your own pace. Alternatively, simply spend long tranquil days on sun soaked shingle beaches.
Transfer time
The hotel is 1 hour from Catania airport. Return private transfers included. To change your transfers or book car hire instead, simply call us once you’ve completed your booking.

Scam! We booked the penthouse suite (paid significantly extra for it) and were given a regular room. (If someone doesn???t point this out, the hotel just makes extra money for no additional services...
