TAORMINA / SICILY VILLA CARLOTTA by White Line hotels: " Villa Carlotta has the luxury of being perched on the fragrant hillside along the northeast Ionian coast of Sicily, this plush little Sicilian hotel & suites has boho allure and nods towards the ancient commune of Taormina, just minutes from the happening Corso Umberto.
Built in 1860, this is a suave boutique residence of soft luxury enveloped by Roman ruins, lush Mediterranean gardens and endless eye-candy views of the distant Calabrian coastline and the wondrous Mount Etna.
The Carlotta has an air of quiet nobility with a splash of the classics and contemporary smoothness.
Reams of silks in Pompeian reds & flaming orange illuminate the ever present sea views, while the cosy smoky grey sofas, over proportional ornamental vases, lavish artworks and floral grounds lend a romantic essence, framing the aged terracotta rooftops that surround.
An abode of chilled luxury, bathed in the Sicilian warmth of a private house fused with just enough urban chic, this is Aristo style – boho chilled, this is the Villa Carlotta Taormina.
