In the countryside of the beach town of Santa Teresa Riva here it is this lovely Sicily villa in Taormina area. Gianfranco and Mimma, the owners, have restored this old house giving it all the comforts you need. The house stands on two levels. In the first floor we find a huge living room with kitchen, a very stylish double bedroom and a bathroom. On the second level we have other two double bedrooms. The exterior shows a many stunning corners: a BBQ area, a patio overlooking the Ionian sea and the pool, and the pool area, of course. From many corners of the house you can enjoy a great view of the ocean and of the town of Savoca, sat on the top of a mountain as a nest of eagle!
MAMMA'S ANGELS TIP (by Adele, who will welcome you at this villa): Buy Sicilian fish and do it at the BBQ. Write Adele if you need more tips: email@example.com

We are in Santa Teresa Riva, one of the most beautiful sea town of the Ionian cost. The house lasts just 3 km’s from the beach. Santa Teresa, of course, is a town where you can find whatever you need. Don’t forget to enjoy the fish market, of course! Taormina, the pearl of Sicily, is just 10 km’s away. Just 5 km’s from the villa here it is Savoca a romantic place renowned to be one of the main spots of The Godfather movie (in Savoca there is the Bar Vitelli where Al Pacino met Apollonia for the first time). Catania and his renowned fish market is almost 50 km’s away. Etna volcano is almost 50 km’s away, too. We also suggest you to visit the naturalistic area of Monte Scuderi (20 km’s) and to enjoy the sandy beaches in Letoyanni (10) or Giardini (15), that are also two nice places where to spend a day having a good meal or ice cream along the promenade. If you love to visit ruins of the past, here it is the archaeological area of Giardini Naxos, the first settlement Greek people founded, when they conquered Sicily (VIII b.C.). Another good tip is the visit of Forza d’Agro (10 km’s), a mysterious hamlet on the top of a mountain. Five km's away you can find, in the hinterland, close to a river, the amazing church of Santi Pietro e Paolo d'Agrò (XII century), one of the foremost examples on Sicily of Norman architecture. If you are in Sicily on April-May, you can enjoy one of the unique events worldwide: the migration of birds of prey, in the sky of Peloritani mountains (Dinnammare, 40 km's away). it's time for food and my advice is to taste the granita with brioche (for breakfast, like a Sicilian do), the fish (with or without pasta), the pizza and the cannoli.
