Villa Diodoro details
Surrounded by greenery, the Villa Diodoro is a relaxing retreat close to the centre of Taormina.
Walk through the Villa Diodoro’s grounds and you’ll be met by the sweet smell of jasmine and orange. Add skyscraper pines and cactus pears into the mix, and you’ve got a tranquil oasis that’s made for relaxing. What’s more, despite its back-to-nature vibe, the hotel is only a five-minute walk from the heart of Taormina. So you’ve got a stylish mix of trattorias, bars, and boutiques within easy reach.
When you just want to stay put, you couldn’t be in a better spot. Nestled into a green hillside, the hotel serves up uninterrupted views of the Sicilian coast. And with a large sea-facing pool and sun terrace, you’ve got a great place to enjoy them. You’ll even be able to spy Mount Etna from your lounger.
Inside, everything’s geared towards taking it easy. Spacious bedrooms feature huge windows and private balconies, so you’ve got a front-row seat for sunset. The lobby, meanwhile, teams marble floors and dark-wood furnishings with comfortable sofas and Persian-style rugs.
Lastly, there’s the dining scene to consider. In the main restaurant, it’s all about Mediterranean-inspired menus, regional dishes and a lengthy wine list. There’s a poolside bar, too, serving up just-baked breads and blended-to-order cocktails.
