The Castello di San Marco charming hotel and SPA is a princely baroque residence dating back to the end of the XVII century. This Boutique Hotel Sicily stands on the Ionian sea, a few kilometres away from the romantic town of Taormina. Today the castle represents a place in which to relax and surround yourself in flourishing natural beauty whilst enjoying the exceptionally comforting atmosphere, within a hotel which prides itself in the highest quality services and attention to detail. The reception halls, the pergolas and the wine bar palmento, an original wine press at the heart of the castle which today has been converted into a unique wine lounge; are all finely decorated whilst maintaining a Sicilian baroque style. The castle’s communal areas encapsulate all the warmth and feeling of historical buildings with a modern elegance. The grand building is illuminated by warm, welcoming lights creating a soft and soothing light throughout. Our rooms meet the requirements of the finest 4-star hotels and offer a beautiful Mediterranean garden surroundings instead of the traditiona carpeted hallway. The Castello di San Marco is a place with a notable past and the excitement of being so close to this history can be felt when one wanders through the archways of the castle and over the cobbled pathways. This sense of history is respectfully combined with the pleasure and warmth of traditional Sicilian hospitality.
