Converted from an aristocratic mansion into a hotel in 1905, historic Villa Schuler is most probably the oldest owner-run hotel in Sicily, which has been extensively refurbished in recent years emphasizing the original elegance, charm and atmosphere. It is superbly situated at the heart of a wide park in the historic centre of Taormina and its unique position offers stupendous views of Mt. Etna and the Bay of Naxos. Centrally located just 2 minutes' walk from traffic free “Corso Umberto” and 10 minutes from the Greek theatre, it is surrounded by its own shady terraced botanical gardens. Amenities include the elegant Orangery, the scenic Palm Terrace, a panoramic lift, the Rooftop Lounge&Terrace. “A la carte” breakfast embracing Slow Food criteria is served in the breakfast room, in the Orangery, on the Palm Terrace overlooking the whole coastline or in your room. Courtesy mountain bikes. Shuttle-service to partner beaches. Tennis courts nearby.
