The
Experience

Late in the 19th century, Sig. Schuler’s great-grandfather travelled by coach from Germany and built his house high above the Ionian Sea. He built on a grand scale and he chose the site well: the views of the Bay of Naxos and Mount Etna are gorgeous. When he died in 1905, Great Grandmama decided to let out some rooms and the villa has been a hotel ever since. Though restored and brought up to date, it still has an old, elegant charm and a relaxed, peaceful atmosphere. Lavish organic breakfasts are served in the chandelier’d breakfast room or out on the terrace. Bedrooms vary; some have beautifully tiled floors, antique furniture and stone balconies; the more modern top-floor suites sport beamed ceilings and large terraces. All come with organic bed linen, jacuzzi showers heated by solar panels, heating from biomass – it’s all super-eco – and views to gardens or sea. Hidden away behind a stone arch, in subtropical gardens scented with jasmine, is a delightful, very private little apartment; a path from here leads all the way to the town’s pedestrianised Corso Umberto.

Reviews

Wonderful stay in Paradise. The occasion of a big Birthday the staff and management of the hotel surprised and overwhelmed me as did the unexpected appearance of my daughters. Great position. View from room of Mediterranean and excellent of Etna from roof terrace. Excellent breakfast. Quiet clean and comfortable. Thanks to Luisa, Rosita in the restaurant ,Claudia in reception and Marco for garaging my car and of course the Main man in the office.

This hotel was simply magical!! The views are amazing, the staff were so helpful and welcoming. It was really lovely to have breakfast served on the terrace at at a leisurely pace. The choice of food was good, it was all fresh, and beautifully cooked and served. The terrace and the cool gardens mean it is possible to enjoy relaxing in a city hotel, such a joy! We will definately be back next year!!!

Local points of interest from Christine Voss-Schuler & Gerhard Schuler

  • The Antique Theatre is the most interesting archeological site of Taormina. Don't miss visiting it and experience the great view from it to the Bay of Naxos and to Mt. Etna. Best visiting time: in the morning, when the sun lightens the site from the east.
  • Corso Umberto, the main pedestrian street, at only 2 minutes from our hotel, beautiful with its old paving, the medieval and baroque palazzi, romantic places, bars, shops and boutiques for those who love shopping.
  • Explore the small alleys off the main pedestrain street and be sure to find wonderful photo motives.
  • Take a stroll through Taormina's Public Gardens. It once was the private property of an English lady married to one of the majors of Taormina. When she died she left the garden to the city of Taormina and together with it some romantic ruin buildings.
  • If you like hiking, take the stairs to Madonna della Rocca. It is the "via crucis" to a small church built into the rocks. From there you have a marvelous view over Taormina and the Ionian coast line. If you are fit, continue to the village of Castelmola!
  • Our hotel is in walking distance to more than 80 restaurants, ranging from a simple but good Pizzeria or a family run Trattoria up to Michelin star restaurants. We have recommendations for every category.
