On of the most exclusive villas in the world, located in one of the most exclusive place of the world: the bay of Mazzarò, in Taormina. The house stands at the top of a rock, overlooking the sea and fully immersed in a lush Mediterranan garden with many lovely corners where to enjoy your holiday. The villa spreads on 3 levels. On the first one we can find the saloon, a bathroom and the kitchen. On the other two there are the bedrooms: 3 double and a twin, and we can also find other 2 bathrooms. The house is situated in the heart of Mazzarò where you can find lido, restaurants, all sort of shop you are searching for, and 100 meters away from the cable for Taormina downtown. Here you can breathe the so famous glamour atmosphere of Taormina.

The pearl of Sicily, one of the worldwide masterpieces of beauty: here it is Taormina, an evergreen location that has attracted people since the ancient times. Archaeology, mith, a sort of Arab architecture, amazing landscapes, a blu sea, and such a nobless atmosphere, gives Taormina a unique charm. A walk in Via del Corso is an unforgettable moment to do not miss among exclusive shops, delicious restaurants and coffe, stunning views of the sea, the Greek theatre, the terrifying sagoma of Etna volcano on the background … and those tireless “viveur” sat at the coffe, searching for a new love!
Few kilometers from the dowtonwn, here it is one of the most beautiful place in the world: Taormina mare (Mazzarò, Spisone, Isolabella), with so many lido where one can eat close by the sea.
Other two great locations (very good for fisheries and beaches), are Letoyanni and Giardini Naxos, the latter with the ruins of Naxos, the first settlement founded by Greeks (VIII b.C.).
Taormina is located in a sort of staircase, with the sea at the bottom, Taormina in the middle and the nice Castelmola (3 km’s) on the top. Upper Castelmola you could visit Monte Venere, where once, maybe, there was a temple devoted to Aphrodite and from where, presently, one can enjoy a great panorama of the oriental coast of Sicily, mount Etna and the italian mainland, just in front.
Facing Taormina here it is Forza d’Agrò (10 km’s), another beautiful place (visit the old cemetery) amd Savoca (20 km’s), both renowned to have been the main spot of the movie The Godfather.
Catania is almost 30 km’s away.
The giant of Sicily, Etna volcano, almost 40 km’s.
Syracuse, the strongest town of the past (VI bb.C.) almost 90 km’s.
For nature lovers I have two suggestions: Monte Scuderi (30 km’s) and, for birdwatchers, Dinnammare (50 km’s) a bottle-neck, I mean one of the few places all over the world where to observe the migration of birds of prey.
Now it’s time for my wife, the chef Silvana and her tips.
“Ciao, this is Silvana, and my menu, if you are in Taormina, is the following: Octopus salade, risotto (rice) alla marinara, pesce spada (swordfish) alla griglia (grilled), lemon ice cream. Also, have a meal by Lido Re del Sole: great place, refined cuisine”
