In November 2008 I led a tour of 13 aesthetically-minded American ladies to Sicily. Everything about the trip was wonderful but Villa Schuler was the best of all! Where to start? -- Mr. Schuler and his entire staff treated us like family and made us feel at home and welcome every moment. -- Our rooms were absolutely lovely, many with...

The hotel stay was very nice- staff very friendly and helpful. Graet breakfast on the wonderful terrace. Villa Schuler is like an island of privacy and elegance in Taormina. And there is another point: The city of Taormina is badly damaged in my eyes through extensive mass tourism. The place itself is so beautiful- and today somehow the elegant charme...

The hotel staff were warm and friendly and arranged transport from Catania. We had a sea-view room. The bathroom was not overly large, but we felt that the quality fittings more than made up for this. Excellent breakfast on patio, with a view to remember. No pool but lush and pleasant garden. No evening meals when we were there (October)...

We only stayed one night - unfortunately. What a great place. Located in a lovely garden, overlooking Mount Etna and the spectacular coast, this hotel has an Art Nouveau feeling in some areas and a contemporary feel on the added top floor.
