Property Description

It was the beginning of the twentieth century when the ancient Villa San Pietro was built by two Danish sisters that were keen on travelling and fond of Island of Sicily. The hotel's origins began with its name, taken from the old byzantine church consecrated to Saint Peter, a gem stone of beauty just outside the Hotel's gates. As the only Relais & Chateaux in Sicily this quiet and beautifully maintained retreat, a few minutes' walk from the centre of Taormina town, is encapsulated by the glorious Sicilian flora that flourishes in this part of the World. Breathtaking views can be enjoyed over the Mediterranean seas and out to the 'Isola Bella' (beautiful island), a small emerald promontory that can only be reached at low-tide via a connecting bridge. An open-air pool provides refreshment from the sun, and a panoramic terrace, a paradise for guests in search of a platform to soak up the heat of the Taormina sunshine. The combination of high quality international service matched with the unrivaled panoramas through to the horizon, leaves guests feeling rested and refreshed, ready to enjoy again the beach, a historic monument, or one of the local activities organized by the hotel. If a romantic holiday is being planned, Taormina is the perfect setting. In the restaurant too, a special table, the 'Rotonda sul Mare', provides a very intimate special place, carved out of the rocks, where a table for two is available under the stars.The Grand Hotel San Pietro provides 63 spacious, sensitively finished rooms with interiors and colors that take their inspiration from the natural habitat outside, ideal for couples and families seeking a tranquil base from which to plan a holiday. All guests' rooms, are finished in various shades of olive green, silver, apricot pink and gold. Wooden framed headboards are upholstered, while bedspreads feature delicate flower patterns and silken pillows reinforce the comforts set at the Grand Hotel San Pietro as standard. Striped curtains, with an elegant cotton lining help to frame the spectacular views that can be marveled at from one of the private terraces. The hotel and its rooms are fitted with all the modern conveniences of a hotel setup to welcome its international guests, whether visiting for business or pleasure. The Hotel also has a range of accommodation solutions for disabled persons.
