Our History

QRA stands for Quartucci Rosaria and Andrea, owners and founders of the company. Today, the daughter Gaia Quartucci and the son Massimo Quartucci have joined the family project, bringing new ideas and great support.


Hotel Villa Ducale in Taormina

We opened our first hotel in 1993, converting the family villa into nine rooms only elegant townhouse. The winning asset that brought this property to real success has always been its view, one of the best in the Mediterranean. Located in the upper part of Taormina, as a gem outside the crowd, it enjoys a full view of the coast, the Strait of Messina, and Mount Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe.

  Constantly growing in the number of rooms and elevating the standards to those of a luxury boutique hotel, today, Hotel Villa Ducale counts 19 rooms, an award-winning restaurant, and is a member of the prestigious collection Small Luxury Hotels of the World.


Hotel Villa Carlotta in Taormina

Our second hotel came in 2007 after a massive restoration of a historic hotel. Hotel Villa Carlotta is a Medieval building of 23 rooms and suites located in the center of Taormina. Built in 1860 for a local aristocratic family, it has always been a point of reference for Taormina visitors.

Today this heavenly retreat, a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, provides a secret refuge for relaxation, romance, and food lovers. Expect sea views of crystal blue waters, breathtaking views of Mount Etna, and a unique blend of understated luxury surrounded by people who genuinely care.


QRA Luxury Apartments in Taormina

In 2011 we expanded our collection, opening four Luxury Serviced Apartments located in a beautiful local palazzo 100 meters from Hotel Villa Carlotta.

Opened all year round, the selection of apartments of Hotel Villa Carlotta is the ideal solution for families, small groups of friends or couples who want to stay in a more private, spacious, and elegant ambiance yet take advantage of all the hotel’s facilities and services.


Teatro Greco Historic House in Taormina

Located in the pedestrian and best area of central Taormina, overlooking a lush Mediterranean garden with orange and lemon trees, Teatro Greco Historic House, known as “Casa Silva” by locals, is a stunning two - floors medieval palazzo.

The original layout is historical, but today it has been refurbished to provide a chic, modern, exclusive and spacious residence, individually designed with state-of-the-art Italian furniture and all possible facilities to make guests embrace the famous Taormina lifestyle.


Q92 Noto Hotel in Noto

The last addition to the collection is the Q92 Noto Hotel, located in the heart of Noto, the capital of Sicilian Baroque architecture. Just nine stunning rooms and suites, a lush Mediterranean garden with a mini pool in a renovated 18th-century Baroque palazzo in the very best part of Noto, a UNESCO World Heritage town. With splendid views of Noto Cathedral, it is, like the others, a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World.
