three couples love to travel together once a year to different places outside the u.s.a. this year we picked a week in umbria and a week in sicily. the so called experts in our group picked the hotel villa carlotta in taormina, sicily, italy. a grand slam home run; this lovely hotel has it all. beautiful small hotel, great location (easy walking to city center and nice view of the sea), nicely decorated and comfortable rooms, great food in their restaurant and the nicest staff that we have experienced in a long time. from andrea, the owner to the front desk and concierge staff (olga, simona, ajith, ricardo) to the restaurant staff (marco, alberto, synetha, mary, patirizia, etc.) to our housekeeper (enza); everyone truly made us feel at home. after a couple of days, we were like family and when we left there were hugs and a couple of wet eyes. on behalf of our group i cannot say enough great things about this experience except to say 5 stars is not enough.
