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.

Customer Reviews

Enjoyed our stay and think it would be even better in summer to make the most of the outdoor amenities.
Enjoyed Most:
View and location were very good. House well equipped and comfortable. Many lovely garden rooms which allow for quiet activities, reading or just relaxing.
Enjoyed Least:
Would have liked stronger water pressure and more ample hot water supply.
Surrounding Area:
Taormina is a delightful town with lovely walks, restaurants, shopping and beautiful views. Many towns within easy driving distance and we enjoyed our visits to Syracuse, Catania, Messina and the drive to Etna. Fish markets in Catania well worth the visit but really loved Syracuse.

Tips or Restaurants:
If you are self catering it is good to arrange a pre-shop of essentials We enjoyed a drink at Palazzo San Domenico.
Used GPS but also did a virtual run using Google Maps
