It is located just off one of Taormina’s roads that run up to Porta Messina and around the perimeter of the town. It is situated a mere 10-minute walk to Corso Umberto and to Taormina’s historic center and conveniently close to the cable car and bus terminal. A stepped path leads down to the beach and more precisely to two of the most beautiful bays of the world – Mazzarò and Isola Bella. The walk downhill only takes about 10 minutes, but you may prefer to opt for a 3-minute journey on the cable car on your return!
This outstanding spacious villa with its lavish terraced garden spans over three levels. This is typical of terraced houses on the cliffside of Taormina viewing the rugged coast fringed by a long beach on one side, and onto the horizon and the mainland. The lateral spaces on each floor combined with the exceptional interior design, fosters a beautiful but practical environment.
On entering the inconspicuous gate
You will be greeted by a lush and slightly wild Mediterranean macchia garden that will instantly make you forget the busy town center. The upper floor features the main open plan living spaces combining a bespoke kitchen space as well as open dining and sitting area. Bathroom with a tub is close by for your continued comfort.
Stepping out from the dining room, the covered terrace features a dining area with a table for 10 people. Off the living area, the terrace is furnished for relaxing.
On the mid-floor
You will find the master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom with shower and sliding glass doors leading out to a large terrace furnished for sunbathing and relaxing.
On the other side of the landing there are two double bedrooms that share a spacious bathroom with shower and bath and a gorgeous sea view.
The spacious lower floor
The spacious lower floor benefits from an adaptable family room with a kitchenette and dining area. It enjoins sitting and TV area, lap top friendly workspace/study, teaming with contemporary furnishings of modern-day living. Aside, a separate double bedroom.
There is also a bathroom with a shower.
Below the spacious gardens and terraces of the lower level is the infinity pool and relaxing areas that are perfect for whiling hours alone or in company. Bathroom and shower stand below the pool. The pool area is reached by steps in the garden from the upper floor. These steps also link the various floors of the house without having to necessarily bypass the main lounge on the upper floor.
Parking for up to 4 cars can be found on the lower level.
Ideally located like an oasis in the very heart of Taormina within walking distance to the beach.
The villa sits on top of a hill offering spectacular sea views of the northern coastline.
Luscious Macchia garden
Set on three levels these make for a shaded reserve from the world beyond.
