About Palazzo Scarlatto


Rising majestically from fragrant orange and lemon groves, Palazzo Scarlatto is the quintessential Sicilian villa. Here historic opulence greets modern day luxury in a civilised embrace. Mount Etna provides a dramatic background, but the villa's magnificent exterior does its utmost to compete. This former winery is the sort of holiday home far to grand to be described as an Italian villa.

Meticulously restored, Palazzo Scarlatto boasts original high vaulted ceilings, volcanic stonework and floor to ceiling windows. It offers unparallelled views of Mount Etna on one side and the Ionian sea on the other. This is a villa that leaves nothing to chance where sumptuous elegance and lavish luxury are concerned. The interior dazzlingly blends striking original features with arresting contemporary design.

Ten stylish en suite bedrooms are equipped with minimalist furniture that offer maximum comfort. Three suites, each enclosed by glass walls seemingly inviting the outside in and giving the illusion that the citrus trees are the real walls offer the pinnacle of decadent affluence and the ultimate in relaxing comfort. It’s a truly remarkable balance to achieve.

The ground floor living area’s cool palette of greys and whites is a little more retiring. It lets you take a comfy seat while the views over the phenomenal terrace and swimming pool do the talking.

Palazzo Scarlatto provides panoramic views over the Taormina Gulf. It's a short drive from the beaches of the Mediterranean Sea: the watchtower of golden Pozzillo and the dramatic black rocks of Stazzo. Holiday here in the winter, however, and the ski slopes of Mount Etna are just as close.
