Your Destination —
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.
