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 on your private terrace before dinner. This property is just a short walk to the beach, and its charming terrace overlooks a bay and has expansive sea views. It’s also only a few minutes by cable car to the historic hillside town of Taormina. This villa is well suited for a family or group of friends.
Location Description

This villa is located on the island of Sicily overlooking a small bay, and is just a short walk from the sandy beach of Spisone. In the summer, you can walk to the town of Mazzaro, which has shops and restaurants. Less than half a kilometer from the villa, you can catch a gondola-style cable car that quickly climbs the 200 meters to the hillside town of Taormina, which 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. Nearby on the coast, the fishing village of Giardini Naxos has beaches, a fishing port, opportunities for boating, and restaurants specializing in fresh seafood. Jeep tours of the volcanic Mount Etna are also available, and the cities of Messina and Catania are each about 50 km away.

This was everything we wanted, and exceeded our expectations, in a villa. It has been in the same family for 5 generations and has been maintained and renovated with love and caring. The owner, Simonetta, is delightful and interested in your comfortable stay. The views are without exception captivating. The comfort and joy of exploration of the gardens, seating areas (outside and in) add to the overall positive experience which wants to make you return! We left desiring to return.

The property was as described.
Enjoyed Most:
The villa was very quaint and well maintained. The patio areas are large with beautiful views of the coastline.

Yes, and several very good restaurants, as well.

Overall:
I traveled with five girlfriends. We loved the property as it afforded us the opportunity to gather and share.
Enjoyed Most:
The spectacular views. The outdoor area was outstanding. The security precautions.
Enjoyed Least:
The driveway was a challenge, with steep hills and sharp curves.
Surrounding Area:
Taormina is a beautiful town. We relied on public transportation and walked to most places. We also ventured outside the immediate area by hiring a driver.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Mazzaro is nearby and we walked. There were no sidewalks, so we walked on the side of the street. It was sometimes frightening because of cars and scooters speeding by.
Tips or Restaurants:
Electrical outlets were a problem. The adapters and converters we brought did not work. Bring adapters and converters with 3 prongs.
Directions:
We had driver from airport to the property. He had no trouble finding it.
Check In Out:
It all went well.
