Although I have fairly often enjoyed short stays at lovely Villa Belvedere in Taormina; on this occasion I was offered one of their four, self-contained Studio-Apartments, newly opened at about 50 metres away and on the same road as the hotel. The modern glass lift transported me unsuspectingly to the intensely pleasurable experience of entering the apartment and being totally delighted at the luminously serene and elegant decor but then - when I approached the full-wall window, and drew back the linen curtaining, there was a breath-taking, uninterrupted view of the sea, the shoreline and of magnificent, snow-covered Mount Etna, in all its glory against the afternoon sky.
The apartments have a comfortable double bed and there are useful wardrobes with large mirrors and a pleasing, sleek, shower/bathroom. The relaxing, well lit lounge area near the window has a broad rug in front of a large settee with cushions, footstools and side-tables. The kitchen area has all the utensils necessary for tea/coffee making or even for preparing a full meal. I loved just being there and enjoying it all and was tempted to spend all my time at the apartment instead of going off wandering outside.
Don’t forget your camera, because you will want to take photo after photo from the balcony where there are pretty plants in pots, comfortable, summery chairs and a table; perfect for sitting quietly and enjoying that fabulous view....
