Villa Angela: a dream come true
While on tour with rock group Simple Minds in 1995, Jim Kerr the lead singer of the famous Scottish band arrived on this Mediterranean island and fell hopelessly in love not only with this most romantic destination, but also with the warmth of the Sicilian people and their passion for life. Aided and inspired by the vision of his friends, Antonio & Giovanni Chemi & Family, the dream of creating an intimate hotel where others could also come to enjoy the magic Mt Etna and the wonder of Taormina's Teatro Greco was born.
It is well known locally that from day one to it's final completion, the greatest attention to detail was used in the aim of creating a Villa with an ambiance that would befit it's unique position in Taormina by transmitting only the real essence of Sicilian life.
The stone of Taormina used as a building material, wrought iron works and traditional chestnut wood elements appear throughout our decor as brilliant examples of local craftsmanship that characterize Hotel Villa Angela.
As may be expected, our interiors include the famous ceramics of Caltagirone, in a range of shapes and colors. Placed throughout the decor, these pieces create a combination of effects that successfully combine the villa's warm and luxurious atmosphere with old aristocratic Sicilian style.
The upscale Hotel Villa Angela in Taormina is perfectly in tune with the nature that surrounds it, featuring roomy terraces that add value to every room and large windows that allow guests to admire the spectacularly beautiful surroundings.
Relax by the swimming pool and savor the hotel's delicious Sicilian breakfast while sitting on the terrace of the restaurant admiring the sun shine over Mount Etna! This spectacular setting is completed by the presence of lush plants, olive trees, citrus fruit and the area's lemon trees, famous around the world for their unique scent.
We are confident that Hotel Villa Angela will meet your expectations!
