About The Experience
Taormina, Mt. Etna, Siracusa and the coast of Sicily are easy day trips from this wonderful location. The rural setting of the villa and the large terraces provide for relaxed gatherings at the beginning and end of the day. In addition, the beautiful pool beckons on those warm days… It is hard to beat this destination!
Location Description

Close to Taormina, this villa is located just 1 km from the town of Graniti, which offers fine restaurants, food markets, and a post office. However, you need not go that far to find good food-- just down the road from the villa there is a moderately-priced, authentic Sicilian restaurant. Local sights not to miss include the lava rock gorges at Gole Alcantara (created when eruptions from Mt Eta flowed into the sea) and the beaches of Giardini Naxos. For those with sporting interests, Il Picciola golf course is 15 km away and other activities such as horseback riding, scuba diving, and boat rentals are available locally. When you arrive, the on-site manager can provide you with information about private tours to Mount Etna, the Ruins of Agrigento, the Aeolian Islands, and more. If you prefer to go it alone, there is municipal bus service to all local beaches and towns. The bus stop is 150 feet from the villa's main entrance, but buses do not run frequently so a car is recommended for the most efficient explorations.

Nearby Attractions: Graniti (restaurants, food markets), Gole Alcantara (lava gorges), Giardini Naxos (beaches), Il Picciola (golf), horseback riding, scuba diving, boat rentals, Mount Etna, the Ruins of Agrigento, the Aeolian Islands.

Exterior Description
(3 hectares) Originally constructed over 500 years ago, this 15th century villa was lovingly restored in 2001 and consists of three separate residences on different floors, of which this is one. Each residence is very private and has its own entrance. The villa sits on a hillside and views overlook the Graniti River valley, covered in orange, lemon, and almond groves. The apartments share gardens graced by 500-year old olive trees, flowers, fruit and nut trees, and multiple terraces for dining or sunbathing. The shared swimming pool (5m x 10m; 0.9m-2.7m deep, open May 1 - Oct 31) is newly built, surrounded by fountains, statuary, lounge chairs, tables, and outdoor showers. Palm trees and tropical plants complete the setting. The villa's original colonnade, characterized by grand arches, is lighted by a series of ceramic chandeliers designed expressly for the villa. The villa itself is accessed via a paved, two-lane road. There is a large, gated parking area adjacent to the villa with room for at least 10 cars.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
It was a beautiful place even in a huge snow storm.
Enjoyed Most:
It was a comfortable place to stay for a week with the family.
Enjoyed Least:
Needed more kitchen amenities. But overall very good. We entered in the midst of a huge snow storm which no one was prepared for. It would have been nice to have walk ways shoveled etc...we are from Upstate NY and are used to the snow. It wasn't a big bother to us.
Surrounding Area:
The view, the wonderful restaurant next door was amazing! Close to Taormina.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Not really walking distance but doable in nice weather.
Tips or Restaurants:
Definitely go to the restaurant next door.
Directions:
GPS.
Check In Out:
All was fine. Owners were very nice and were prompt.

Overall:
We had a lovely experience at the villa. Philip and Carmelo are wonderful! They couldn't do enough for us and we hope to see them again in the future. They take pride in their villa.
Enjoyed Most:
It was very peaceful and quiet. The grounds are lovely, the the pool was perfect, and of course--there's Philip and Carmelo. The place is beautiful!
Enjoyed Least:
My kids might say that they didn't like the lack of a TV or the fact that they couldn't walk to town. Overall, though, a great experience.
Surrounding Area:
The natural beauty. Experiencing the countryside. Also, the villa is close to Taormina and is very convenient to all the major roads.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Graniti and Gaggi are the closest small towns (1 km), but for us were not in walking distance to the villa. But still, very close to everything you need. I loved the charm of the old town. Maybe for some people, who run daily, getting there on foot wouldn't be a problem.
Tips or Restaurants:
The restaurant right next door to the villa was delicious. Giuseppe the owner was very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. One night we stopped by his restaurant late after a full day of sightseeing. He was ready to close for the evening but he didn't hesitate to prepare a lovely dish of pasta for us to bring back to our villa to enjoy. The villa had toilet paper and soap enough to start our vacation. The kitchen is stocked with all the essential utensils. Plus the town has a grocery store for things you may need to buy for the villa. It would be in the renter's best interest to rent a car to visit the sites in the area.
Directions:
We had a driver take us to and from the airport. We rented a car in Taormina; didn't seem to have any issues with driving and yes we did use GPS. My son felt that Google maps was more accurate to use for this area.
Check In Out:
The check in/out process was simple. Philip and Carmelo, like I said, are wonderful.

The pool. It's an oasis.

Nearby Events or Locales:
Gaggi- not really walkable. Especially in Sicily in August. It was hot!

Right next door was a simple family-run restaurant. We went twice. I wish I could go now. Owners really supply everything you need.

Very easy - no GPS required.
Check In Out:
No hassles whatever.
