Complimentary nights in ancient Taormina
The ancient town of Taormina is an idyllic and historic base for exploring the north-east corner of Sicily. A journey through its centre is also a journey through time, as visitors discover Baroque fountains, the 13th-century Duomo, the 10th-century Palazzo Corvaja and the magnificent Greek Theatre, built way back in the 3rd century BC but still used today for concerts and operas. Aside from the town itself, the surrounding countryside is blissful - Mount Etna, Europe's largest volcano is less than an hour's drive away, the nature reserve of Isola Bella is even closer, and a day excursion on a private yacht makes for a truly luxurious day out exploring the fishing villages and grottos, or the volcanic Aeolian Islands stretching out into the Tyrrhenian Sea.
Belmond's two properties here both have great deals in place to give you the chance to enjoy the area like you should. Villa Sant'Andrea boasts its own private beach on the secluded Bay of Mazzarò and the 19th-century retreat retains much of its original charms to earn a deserved reputation as one of Taormina's most romantic accommodations. From September 16th to October 17th, guests can take advantage of deals offering 5 nights for the price of 4 and 7 nights for the price of 6 on selected room categories.
The same offer is available at the villa's sister property, the Grand Hotel Timeo, from September 30th to October 27th. Also a converted 19th-century property, this elegant building lies further up in the rocky hills to present some breath-taking views over the town and bay below, with Etna towering up into the sky in the background. See for yourself why literary giants have decided to extend their stay to several months with a cocktail out on the Literary Terrace.
