Villa al Mare by Ducale

An exclusive Sicilian villa with a view of the island of Isola Bella in Taormina: your luxury private retreat by Villa Ducale!

Following a meticulous renovation, the owners of HotelVilla Ducale and Hotel Villa Carlotta in Taormina have decided to open their own private antique villa residence to anyone seeking a luxurious and very special stay overlooking the ‘Pearl of the Ionian Sea’. Villa al Mare by Ducale is a perfect choice for an unforgettable holiday with family or friends in a villa retreat which offers complete privacy.

The building is a three storey medieval palazzo clad with stone facades, hand-painted floor tiles and large wrought-iron gates. On the ground floor there is a large lounge with cross vaulted ceilings and 17th century Sicilian balcony facing the sea, a dining area with table for 8, a fully equipped kitchen, guest bathroom, laundry and store room. Near the kitchen is the villa’s large panoramic terrace where under a pergola covered by jasmine and bougainville you will find chairs, sofas and a cast iron table for outdoor breakfasts and dinners. The grounds of the property are carefully manicured to make you feel completely at home in your own luxury property.

The three ensuite bedrooms are each unique in their design, lavishly decorated with antiques and fine art from collections around the world to create an atmosphere of timeless elegance. The custom designed beds are prepared in pure linen and come with a choice of pillows to ensure you the perfect sleep.

All rooms have individually controlled air conditioning, flat screen TV, international satellite channels, CD/DVD player, high speed internet connection, free WiFi access, mini-safe, luxury amenities and toiletries.

An antique white stone staircase leads to villas’ medieval tower and a stunning panoramic terrace overlooking the beautiful bay of Isola Bella, today a WWF nature reserve and home to the most beautifu beach in Taormina. You can reach the island by decsending 100 steps from the villa and crossing the narrow path which connects the island to the mainland. The terrace is equipped with a Jacuzzi bath tub, a super panoramic solarium with loungers, large table with chairs and a small fridge for total relaxation.

The prime position of Villa al Mare along the coastline does not mean you will be isolated. Taormina town center is just a 5 minute drive away as is our luxury Hotel Villa Carlotta. 10 minutes further on you can also reach Hotel Villa Ducale.
