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.

We booked Villa Spisone-8 for a large group of family and friends and it was perfect. The villa is large and spacious with plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen is on the smaller side but very well equipped - we really only used it for coffee and breakfast, anyway. The villa is clean, the gardens are beautiful and the patio is outstanding. The weather was beautiful while we were there so we spent most of our time outside. Already planning our return!
Enjoyed Most:
The patio is amazing - nice and big with an outstanding view. Lots of room with a covered area in case of rain. The spa is nice to have, even though it's not heated. The villa's convenient location is also a huge plus. Very close to the beach (2 min. walk) and close to the cable car to Taormina (10 min. walk) and walking distance to plenty of shops and restaurants in Mazzaro. Plenty of bathrooms - one for each room was very nice to have as well!
Enjoyed Least:
Not much to add here - we loved everything. Nothing to do with the villa but walking the road back and forth to Mazzaro is a little dicey due to heavy traffic.
Surrounding Area:
Lido La Caravella is a great beach location - 2 minute walk. The cable car to Taormina is only a 10 minute walk. Very convenient.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Mazzaro was the closest town - about a 5 minute walk from the villa. Plenty of restaurants and small shops. Very convenient.
Tips or Restaurants:
Make sure to bring mosquito repellent. There is some at the villa but you can never have enough. Lido La Pigna is an excellent restaurant at the beach in Mazzaro but it closes at 7pm so don't plan on a late dinner, there. Lido La Caravella is a great beach very nearby.
We had a car service drop us off at the property - we had no problems with the directions.
Check In Out:
No. Check in and check out went very smoothly.

Villa is in a beautiful area with spectacular views.
Enjoyed Most:
The outdoor areas were large and beautiful, with many choices for outdoor dining.
Enjoyed Least:
The living room couches were dated and uncomfortable. There were also two different dogs in the area that barked often.
Surrounding Area:
Very nice towns and people. The local grocery store was convenient and the owners were very nice to us.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Mazzano, within walking distance, with the cable car to Taormina.
Tips or Restaurants:
None in particular. We didn't have a bad meal. Every restaurant we tried was good.
Directions to the villa were perfect.
Check In Out:
Check in and check out went very smoothly. Simonetta was very helpful.
