  • About this holiday

    Situated on a small peninsula on the coast of Taormina, the grand five-star Villa Sant'Andrea is the epitome of Sicilian sea-front luxury. Traditional flair and ornate decoration frame the magnificent views across the sea, beach, and verdant rocky coast, allowing guests the perfect balance between powerful nature and warm home comforts. The enviable situation of this hotel means that you are kept just far enough away from the lively town centre to be enveloped in a bubble of tranquillity, but with easy access to Taormina's best historical and cultural sights. The beach-front position makes it perfect for long relaxing stays.

    Our opinion

    The Belmond Villa Sant'Andrea is a charming hotel of quality on the sea beneath Taormina.

    Hotel description

    The Belmond Villa Sant’Andrea was originally built by an English family in a glorious location on the water’s edge amidst sub-tropical gardens. The flavour of the family villa remains in the subtle and elegant decoration, the antique furniture and paintings and the style of the hotel, yet tasteful refurbishment has meant that the bedrooms of the Villa Sant’Andrea offer high standards of contemporary comfort. Oliviero’s Restaurant has a good reputation locally and affords delightful views across the bay of Mazzaro. Service is in the garden terrace by the beach in the summer months. Clients have the use of the Villa Sant’Andrea’s beach, a mixture of sand and shingle, equipped with sun loungers, umbrellas, towels, showers and changing facilities, all complimentary to hotel guests. The bedrooms are all of different sizes, aspects and decoration. Some face the sea, some the gardens, and some of the sea view rooms have balcony or terrace. The Belmond Villa Sant’Andrea is situated a couple of minutes’ walk from the cable car to Taormina. A charming hotel in an excellent location the Belmond Villa Sant'Andrea is perfect for both relaxing and exploring Siciliy.
