How can we describe the endless appeal of Taormina since the remotest times in a few brush-strokes? A breathtaking view on the bluest sea of the Tyrrhenian coast, the imposing presence of snow-clad Etna looming above, innumerable colours from the gardens on the surrounding hills, an ubiquitous sea breeze, fragrances of flowers and plants everywhere, just to mention the natural attractions. And what to say of its spectacular monuments, or the liveliness of its cultural events?
Can we dare call this privileged spot a sort of “God’s smile”? Yes, we definitely think so. And in the heart of this special place, Villa Taormina cannot fail in contributing its own unforgettable sensations with its blessed location, the comforts it offers, the ability to tickle your fancy with its additional services. Can you imagine a cooking lesson or a pizza-making session with this scenery around? Wow! Your holiday here cannot be but extraordinary.
Property descritpion. From the back entrance you’ll be admitted to the exterior “living” space with its wonderful swimming-pool. Naxos’s beach and the Ionian coast are on the background, and in the barbecue area a wood-burning oven waits for funny pizza-making sessions. On the left, a pretty kitchen furnished with handmade pieces and boasting a lively majolica floor, that you’ll admire in different versions and patterns in all rooms.
From the entrance, a short corridor leads you to a bathroom with shower and a quiet single room, opening on a bright furnished veranda. On the right, the spacious multicoloured parlour with its stylish furniture and numerous windows, letting a flood of lights and colours in from the garden and the sea. No doubt you’ll be fascinated by the curious little objects this room is filled with.
Here you have satellite TV and internet connection. At the end of the corridor, a quiet light-blue double bedroom whispers of sunny drowsy afternoons and cool nights. Taking your time in the en-suite bathroom with tub will be a special pleasure. If you credit colour therapy, you’ll surely find this place particularly “healthy”. From a spiral staircase next to the main entrance you’ll be admitted to the ground floor.
At the foot of the staircase, an original veranda furnished with a beautiful carved stone table and a long stone sofa. From here you can enter a triple colourful bedroom with stylish modern furniture and - in succession - a green classical style double bedroom. Both rooms share a bathroom with shower.
Further ahead, you’ll find a second lively coloured double bedroom, with en-suite bathroom with shower. Entering the garden from the elegant veranda you’ll be welcomed by a pretty “stone parlour” with tidy flowerbeds all around. From here you can start exploring the garden, crowded with vegetation and boasting shadowy spots and funny hideouts. A few stone steps, lost in the green, will lead you to the house top, where you’ll enjoy a spectacular postcard view of the Etna volcano in all its imposing beauty.
