Location Description

The villa is located in Trappitello, a lower area of Taormina characterized by small hills positioned in front of the Alcantara Valley. The villa is in a quiet spot surrounded by lemon trees and neighboring villas, less than 200 meters away from the village center, where there are restaurants, shops, a post office and bus stop with service to Taormina. There is a dedicated footpath to Taormina that begins in front of the railway station, which is 5 kilometers from the villa. The residential streets in the area are all paved and easily accessible, and the autostrada (Uscita Giardini A 19) is 1.5 kilometers away. Taormina (7 km away) is home to shops, restaurants, cafes and a well-preserved ancient Greek theatre – the second largest in Sicily – which is perched on a rocky cliff overlooking the sea and Mount Etna. Taormina’s most beautiful beaches are located 2 kilometers from the property. Also a few kilometers away is the scenic Alcantara Valley, with its famous gorge, as well as long stretch of vineyards and fields. Etna Rosso wine-producing towns such as Linguaglossa and Piedimonte Etneo are about 20 minutes away by car, and volcanic Mount Enta is 45 minutes by car (year-round guided tours are available). From December to March, visitors can ski just few meters from Etna’s main crater.
