About The Experience
At this well-situated villa in Sicily, you can visit a well-preserved Greek amphitheater, have lunch on the beach, tour a volcanic mountain, and still have time to relax in your private pool before walking to town for dinner. Located high on a hill and surrounded by a large garden, this property has plenty of quiet and privacy, yet it is only a few minutes by foot to the town center of Taormina. From the villa and the surrounding area, there are great views of the sea below and Mount Etna above, and a cable car from Taormina takes you down to the beaches of Mazzaro. This villa is well suited for a family or group of friends.
Location Description

This villa in Sicily is a five minute walk from the old town center of Taormina, which sits 200 meters above sea level. This lovely town has shopping, restaurants, cafes, and views of the sea and nearby Mount Etna. Taormina has a rich history, as a former Greek and later Roman outpost, reflected in the town’s ruins and archaeological sites. Most spectacularly, the well-preserved ancient Greek theatre – the second largest in Sicily – is perched on a rocky cliff overlooking the sea and Mount Etna. In the summer, there are concerts and other performances in the theatre. Below Taormina, the fishing village of Giardini Naxos has beaches, a fishing port, opportunities for boating, and restaurants specializing in fresh seafood. For even quicker access to the beach, you can take a gondola-style cable car from Taormina to Mazzaro Beach – the ride takes only a few minutes. Jeep tours of the volcanic Mount Etna are also available, and the cities of Messina and Catania are each about 50 km away.

Overall:
The villa was all that I hoped it would be and more.
Enjoyed Most:
The overall beauty of the villa.
Surrounding Area:
The beauty of the area.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Taormina. Yes, but impossibe to walk to for an older person. The hills were very, very steep. We had to be very creative about how to get there, since the parking was non existent.
Tips or Restaurants:
I thought the villa was very equipped.
Directions:
It was a little difficult to get to and we used the GPS at all times.
Check In Out:
The check in and check out process was no problem. Gabriel was perfect.

Overall:
Very nice and pleasant.
Enjoyed Most:
The outdoor area.
Enjoyed Least:
Hard to find and steep hills.
Surrounding Area:
Beautiful view of ocean.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Taormina was the nearest small town and it was within walking distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
Older folks should know that hills are very steep to walk up and down to town and that unless they are in really good athletic shape they will probably not be able to do the walk. Good for everyone else who wants exercise after a great dinner!
Directions:
We used our own iPhone GPS and still couldn't find the exact place. We got very close but still had to have someone come out and show us where to park the car.
Check In Out:
No. That process went very well. They were so very nice. They were very accommodating.
