Hotel Villa Schuler

Back in the early 1900s, Hotel Villa Schuler was the beloved holiday destination of famous and wealthy artists, nobles, and bohemians, who flocked to Taormina for its ethereal views and stunning culture. Now a four-star hotel surrounded by lush greenery, our historic villa remains to be the ultimate base for tourists exploring Sicily. Get ready for a sophisticated – and spectacular – stay.

Building: 1902

Converted from a Sicilian mansion into a hotel in 1905, historic Hotel Villa Schuler is the oldest owner-run hotel in all of Sicily.

Our traditional villa has been extensively refurbished in recent years to emphasise its original elegance, charm and atmosphere. Superbly situated high above the Ionian Sea, its unique position offers stupendous views of Mt. Etna and the Bay of Naxos. Just a two-minute walk to traffic-free Corso Umberto and 10 minutes from the Greek-Roman theatre, it’s in a brilliant position to see some of the best sights Taormina has to offer.

Our property itself has many treasures to explore, too. Enclosed by its own extensive, subtropical, shady botanic gardens, at Hotel Villa Schuler you can bask in an elegant orangery, scenic Palm Terrace, rooftop lounge and more. We’ve even built a panoramic lift here – allowing you to gaze out across incredible views as you travel between locations on-site.

Contemporary comforts are everywhere. Benefit from free high-speed Wi-Fi, 24-hour bar and room service, valet parking, delicious breakfasts and 27 spacious rooms. The list goes on… but the best thing to do? It’s to come and experience it all for yourself.
