Villeggiatura in Taormina

This summer, we’re embracing the spirit of villeggiatura – an intrinsic Italian concept referring to a long, leisurely stay in the pursuit of total rest and recreation.

Those long, picturesque walks shared hand-in-hand. The conversation and cocktails served with a panoramic view. Those lazy lunches that stretch on until the stars come out. The moments of bliss where time stands still, and every second begs to last a little longer.

Feast on a Sicilian granita, or a post-dinner amaro overlooking Mount Etna. Breathe in the heady scent of bougainvillea as you enjoy leisurely aperitivo on our starlit terrace or a bite of arancini during a long lunch.

At Grand Hotel Timeo, your villeggiatura awaits.
