Villa Britannia B&B

Certificate of Excellence
Villa Britannia is a small, exclusive, boutique B&B located in the centre of Taormina, surrounded by Sicilian gardens in a quiet position with views over the sea and the city. The building has been recently refurbished with vintage, designer and antique furniture and most of the the wall art and sculptures are made locally. You are not only sleeping in a authentic Sicilian Villa, but also living within an art space, throughout an important historical heritage. The building, hosting an ancient Roman soldier tomb in its garden, is indeed the neighbour villa to where the famous writer D.H Lawrence lived for over 4 years and Truman Capote for 1 year. Villa Britannia is also an ideal place for those with a love of food and wine; we organise throughout the week cooking lessons, Sicilian wine tastings, aperitif, evenings with locals, and more. We want you to feel at home but experience and taste a true side of Sicily.

Lovely Villa with very caring and friendly hosts! As the roads in Taormina are narrow, steep and winding and happen to be extremely busy the week we came, Marco, our host, came to meet us on his motorbike as we came off the highway, then led us towards the villa and the parking.
