Seek solace along Sicily's eastern coast with a stay at a classical Mediterranean hotel, complete with a private beach - with all travel and breakfast
Sicily is an isle of wonder: a long, rich history, golden coastlines and of course, all the culinary delights you’d expect from an Italian island. The east coast has plenty to offer in way of sunshine, sand and sea, and what better way to explore it than with a stay in Letojanni, a small coastal town just north of Taormina. Kick back on your balcony, or take to exploring the eastern coast in all its glory.
The star attraction in the area is Taormina itself, a hilltop town with a glamorous, rarefied allure and evocative ancient Greek ruins. Its ancient theatre, perched dramatically on a cliff, dates back to the third century BC and is well worth a visit. Further afield, the port city of Catania offers up UNESCO-listed wonders and lively bars and cafes, all framed by the backdrop of mighty Mount Etna. Heading north, discover one of Sicily’s finest cathedrals in Messina.

While there are many islands in the Mediterranean, the one you’ll lose your heart for most is Sicily. The largest Italian island is a treasure trove of culture, history and tradition, while Mother Nature has worked her magic to make this a truly idyllic paradise. Gaze out on the rolling hills and enjoy the luscious view, over Mediterranean olive groves and lemon plantations. Here, you can breathe and taste the blissfully warm southern environment. In the evening, listen to the crickets chirp, filling you with the complete sense of pleasure and relaxation, while on the beach, the clear ocean waves gently roll across the shore. This is a holiday where every moment is made to be savoured, with a delicious glass of wine, and your favourite Italian dish.
Park Hotel Silemi
- Letojanni, Italy
With its unique position on the shores of Letojanni, Park Hotel Silemi welcomes you to relax surrounded by idyllic views and utter peace and quiet. The hotel oozes Mediterranean charm, from the terrace laced with terracotta tiles and stone pillars in the lobby areas. This Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence-winner will dazzle you with its sublime sunsets over Taormina’s famous bay - which can be enjoyed first and foremost on the hotel’s private beach.
Spend some time lolling by the fresh seawater pool, where you can admire endless views of the Ionian sea. In warmer months, kick back on the open-air lounge bar and sip refreshing cocktails, before snacking on pasta from the seasonal restaurant - or any of the other authentic flavours of Sicily that may find their way onto your plate (open June to September).

Stroll around the remains of a Greek Theatre
Step back in time with a visit to the Teatro Greco, the ruins of a third-century BC theatre. To make things more impressive, you can see Mount Etna looming in the distance, which makes a rather spectacular backdrop to the whole experience.
Take a boat ride to Isola Bella
The petite island just off Taormina's coast is a charming nature reserve, teeming with natural beauty. Wander around this islet for half a day, before returning to the more lively goings-on in town.
Take in the wonder that is Mount Etna
Italy's highest mountain south of the Alps, Etna makes the largest active volcano in Europe. This formidable entity sits in the stunning National Park, which encompasses over 550 square kilometres - the park's landscapes range from snow-topped mountains and lush vineyards and more.
