We Love

  • Hotel Villa Sonia is an historic property exuding character and charm, with splendid views of Mount Etna.
  • Located in Castelmola - an ancient town perched atop a sheer rock overlooking the sea. The city of Catania is an hour's drive away - ideal for a day trip.
  • Enjoy a 7 night stay in this beautiful part of Sicily, choosing from two room types to suit your budget.

Your Destination

Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean and has long been known as a 'melting pot' of ancient cultures due to its location on the major Mediterranean shipping routes. The landscape of Sicily is beautiful and varied. In the north-east, Mount Etna, with its fertile slopes and valleys, supports a number of vineyards. In the south-east there are the beautiful forest-covered mountains; the landscape characterised by soft hills, with vineyards, olive groves, almond trees, citrus and the characteristic carob trees.

To the west the landscape becomes gentler with soft, rolling hills, and it is here one finds long sandy beaches. The weather is mild all year round and temperatures will not normally go below 15 degrees, even in the coldest months. Sicily has many lovely sandy beaches and a wealth of holiday towns and villages. Situated on the waterfront near Taormina, Giardini-Naxos is one of the most sophisticated seaside towns in Sicily and the sandy beach is considered one of the best on the island.

The village of Castelmola is a short stroll uphill from the hotel.  It is a quaint little village with winding streets and a nice selection of shops and restaurants - a lovely place to wander around in the evenings, with its genuine Sicilian atmosphere.
