Hotel Villa Bianca/Principe details

Well-manicured gardens and postcard-worthy views make this place an escapist’s dream come true.

The Hotel Villa Bianca is set on a hillside among tropical gardens, so uninterrupted seascapes are part of the deal. It’s only a short downhill walk to the beach, too. And if you’d rather explore inland, you can hop on the local cable-car and be in the heart of Taormina within five minutes.

As for the accommodation itself, it’s made up of three buildings staggered into the cliff face. They’re connected by tree-lined pathways, with hidden gardens and sea-facing sun terraces dotted in between. Inside, rooms are typically Mediterranean looking – think fresh white walls, cool tiled floors and floral bedspreads. What’s more, each one comes with a private balcony or terrace, as well as extras like air-conditioning and a minibar.

Food-wise, you can expect a mix of international dishes in the hotel's buffet restaurant. Keep an eye out for the Sicilian gala nights in the summer, too – you’ll get to enjoy music from a traditional folk band as you dine al fresco on the terrace.

Last but not least, when you want to relax by the pool, wander down the road to the Hotel Ipanema. It’s the sister hotel of this place, and you’re welcome to take a dip in their rooftop number whenever you like.
