Huw's View

Donna Carmela Resort & Lodges is in a perfect location for those looking for a peaceful setting, between Mount Etna and the Ionian Sea.

The hotel has a beautiful setting in a Mediterranean nursery and the guest rooms are beautifully designed and cared for by the hands-on owners, with many personal touches around the hotel.

The friendly staff are very proud of the hotel and are happy to organise day trips or recommend nearby beaches and restaurants to guests who wish to explore the local area.

With Taormina and Etna just a short drive away, the Donna Carmela is an ideal compromise between seclusion and convenience.
