Majestic views of Mount Etna and the Bay of Naxos make the Sole Castello a really special place to enjoy your holiday in Sicily. The hotel sits in the high hills of the town, so guests can see the beautiful natural surrounds stretching out below the property. It enjoys a peaceful position on the fringes of Taormina, with the heart of the town found just 1.5 kilometres away.
Both the cable car and the local bus service will take you down to the nearby bay, which is a rugged stretch of sand and pebbles that stretches towards the beautiful blue ocean. The coast is a natural border of sleepy bays and untouched islets, with some water sports activities offered in some areas.
The hotel boasts further phenomenal views from its outdoor swimming pool, which is bordered by a small sun bathing terrace with parasols and chairs set overlooking the sea. For some relaxation you can take some time to enjoy the hydromassage facilities.
If you wish to enjoy some peace and quiet inside, you can sit back and relax with a good book in the hotel's reading room.
Guests can indulge in some superb cuisine at the hotel restaurant, which prides itself on local Sicilian ingredients and flavours, which are blended with international and Italian dishes. This delicious menu is served in a graceful dining room, which boasts views across the bay.
Themed nights of piano music and folklore performances are also offered from time to time.
