The Ashbee Hotel is located in a peaceful 20th century Sicilian Villa in the heart of Taormina. The House was built in the 1908’s by Colonel Shaw-Hellier who commissioned the famous Architect Charles Robert Ashbee, English designer and entrepreneur, prime mover of the Arts & Craft movement. Today, this new charming house offers some of the finest accommodation in Sicily. With 24 guestrooms and suite, you will find everything required for a relaxing stay. Each guest room is a grand statement of colour and style, dressed with fine fabrics and antique furnishing in a contemporary concept. Enjoy a gorgeous breakfast with sea view to start a new day. The Terrace is the perfect setting during the season to enjoy our freshly baked homemade breads, biscuits and fresh fruits. The panoramic swimming pool overlooking the sea where guests can wrap up in a soft towel is the perfect place to relax in the afternoon.
