  • About this holiday

    Almost hidden behind its flourishing gardens of tropical plants, bougainvillea, and palm trees, stands the ochre-washed Hotel Villa Belvedere. The calm tones of the simple yet luxurious bedrooms enhance the vibrancy of the hotel's grounds and the Sicilian sky and sea. Take lunch under the citrus trees on the pool terrace, or relax with a book in the lounge, before heading out into the ancient town of Taormina and locating the Greek and Roman ruins. This four-star hotel is best-suited to those looking for a short Italian break, or as part of a longer tour of Italy, the Aeolian Islands, or Sicily. Its excellent location places guests within a short distance of larger towns such as Catania, Messina, and Syracuse.

    Our opinion

    The Hotel Villa Belvedere is a comfortable, centrally located hotel, offering excellent value for money.

    Hotel description

    The Hotel Villa Belvedere is a 4-star hotel located centrally near the botanical gardens of Taormina, perched on a hill-side affording beautiful views of the coast and the countryside towards Mount Etna. Occupying an historic Sicilian villa, the Villa Belvedere offers comfortable accommodation in reasonably good sized bedrooms, some of which have a balcony with tables and chairs. The bedrooms are simply but pleasingly equipped with wi-fi throughout. There is a small, prettily furnished lounge with paintings and comfortable chairs, a cosy bar area nearby and on a floor below, a breakfast room. Outside there is a sun terrace and swimming pool reached through terraced luxuriant gardens of tropical plants and bougainvillaea, above which tower immense palm trees. On the terrace by the pool, tasty light lunches are served. The Hotel Villa Belvedere can also arrange for you to join local excursions to all the major sites and places of interest. It is a comfortable, boutique hotel in a perfect location for exploring the local area and larger towns nearby.
