Villa Sant’Andrea: Romantic Getaway in Sicily
Reflected in the glittering waters of the Ionian Sea, Villa Sant’Andrea is a timeless jewel set in the wild Sicilian nature. Immerse yourself in the aristocratic charm of this secluded retreat and rediscover the pleasure of a seaside escape
Born as a private home, Villa Sant’Andrea was transformed into a hotel in the 1950’s by Robert’s son and entered in the Belmond Hotels family to become one of the most romantic retreats of the region. Surrounded by delightful subtropical gardens, with stunning views on the dazzling sea, the Villa is the perfect location for a seaside escape.
Colors and scents of nature are the great protagonists of Villa Sant’Andrea: they mix and meet in the decorative details. The tastefully furnished spaces give the guest a pleasant impression of bright airiness, steeped in the delightful fragrances of citrus, jasmine and neroli to encourage a deep connection with the land.
Each room is flooded with light, coming from large windows and reflected on the marble floors. Stunning views of the sea act as a frame for the elegant interiors, while at the same time captivate the attention of the visitors. Surrounded by unspoiled nature and flowers, many terraces stand on the sea, offering wonderful and uncontaminated glimpses of impressive climbs. Enjoying spectacular sunsets surrounded by the sweet scent of citrus, sipping a fresh cocktail here is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The most exclusive spot of Villa Sant’Andrea is undoubtedly the private beach, an authentic sanctuary on the sand where the guest can enjoy the luxury of silence, relax and unwind surrounded by the glistening crystal-clear waters and the aquamarine shoreline with its prestigious skyline.
Were a man to spend only one day in Sicily and ask, “What must one see?” I would answer him without hesitation, “Taormina.” A landscape where you find everything on earth that seems made to seduce the eyes, the mind and the imagination.
