Parchotel Olimpo

From its hillside, the Parchotel Olimpo looks out over Letojanni and beyond. The hotel has two pools – one indoor, one outdoor – as well as a gym, stream room and sauna. The rooms are bright and fresh, and the colourful interior of the reception has a quirky retro feel. To get your traditional Sicilian groove on, sign up for the weekly music and dancing folklore show in the hotel’s restaurant. When evening rolls around, you’ll want to try something off the hotel’s a la carte menu or help yourself to a selection of fresh local produce from the buffet.

Things to do in Letojanni, Sicily

After a full day in Taormina, head back to the comfort of the Parchotel Olimpo. Letojanni has all the key components for a perfect summer getaway: sun, sand and sea. Let yourself be wooed by the beauty and serenity of this small corner of Sicily, and have a holiday you’ll never forget.

Resort Summary

Letojanni holidays are notoriously tranquil and nothing amplifies that quite like a few lazy beach days. While the area itself is relatively small, the beach makes up for modest proportions elsewhere, thanks to a lengthy stretch of sand that offers endless sunbathing potential, and uninterrupted views of the surrounding hillsides. For those that like sand with a slice of convenience, there are specific lido areas. These offer showers, loungers and parasols for a fee, but if you’re happy to simply throw down a towel, there are plenty of spaces to occupy.
