Absolutely charming and located not far from the main crater of Mt. Etna volcano, the Villa Dorata hotel is in an old princely residence, now completely renovated. Its decor us in a delightful period style ...More and some of the period furniture belonged to the original villa; there are nine double bedrooms and you will find everything you need to make your stay comfortable; what is more, Villa Dorata has one of the most extensive and lovely views in Sicily. In addition to enjoying fine hospitality, guests can take guided tours to Etna's craters, go trekking in Sicily's parks and nature reserves, or relax on lovely beaches, from Taormina Giardini Naxos to the most southern coasts of Sicily, and visit some of the most beautiful seaside places in Italy. There are also wonderful food and wine routes for visitors to enjoy, as well as artistic-cultural tours of the Sicilian baroque towns in Val di Noto. Less
