Belmond Villa Sant’Andrea, TAORMINA MARE, SICILY, Italy

Sister hotel to Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo, set on the exquisite Bay of Mazzarò, Belmond Villa Sant'Andrea's gorgeous gardens and private beach are a magnificent playground for the entire family.

This iconic seafront hotel, set in lush gardens on the edge of the Bay of Mazzaro, dates from 1830 and retains the feel of a private residence. The setting is idyllic and the hotel makes the most of it; most rooms have a balcony overlooking the bay, while the Oliviero Restaurant (noted for fine Sicilian seafood) occupies the vast seafront terrace.

​To add to the restful ambience, the Wellness Centre has a wide range of treatments based on orange flowers, amber, sandalwood and jasmine, with in-room service available.

The hotel also has its own private beach and Kids' Club; and if you want to get out and about, take the complimentary daily boat tour or the private shuttle to the lively centre of pretty Taormina.

Around 200 feet above the bay, the town's many cultural and shopping attractions can also be reached by spectacular cable car, whisking you there in just three minutes.
