Belmond Villa Sant'Andrea
Via Nazionale 137
98039 Taormina Mare, Sicily, Italy
In a secluded cove on the Bay of Mazzaro, Belmond Villa Sant'Andrea is the place to go if you want to hide away. Built as an aristocratic residence in 1830, this 60-room property continues to offer the ambience of an exclusive manor house. Though guests are just three minutes by cable car from the center of Taormina, they will feel a world apart, as they lounge beneath umbrellas on the hotel's private beach, drift in the swimming pool that feels like an extension of the sea or savor a spa treatment with products that incorporate Sicilian and Mediterranean ingredients. Creatively crafted regional classics are served on the terrace at Restaurant Oliviero, with seafood fresh from the bay grilled over a charcoal fire. Activities include boat excursions to Mount Etna, tours of famous settings from "The Godfather" and explorations of Sicily's baroque architecture in a Fiat 500.
