          A serene enclave in Taormina. Fantastic site, superb service in a quiet restrained schedule. Breakfast on the deck looking out on the sea and the town was a delight. Countless small nice touches added up to one of the best hotels we've enjoyed.

          Dressing smart but casual at the same time is appropriate. I would avoid flip flop, shorts, t-shirt. Anything you would use for the beach...avoid it. I hope you will enjoy your staying.
