This is the second time in two years we've stayed at this villa, and that says it all. It's in a small complex with a private pool, and an elevator that takes you down to the sea (its a large rocky area with flat surfaces for sunbeds and umbrellas so you don't have to go to the public beach and rent umbrellas and chairs and be right beside others like in a sardine can:) The garden is magical and goes right to the cliff's edge. Everything is modern, clean, stylish; the kitchen has everything you need. The ensuite bathrooms for each bedroom are gorgeous. The view is spectacular. Parking is so easy and convenient. We would stay at the villa all day, at the sea or pool, have breakfast and lunch while looking at our stunning views, and then most nights, go up to Taormina town to stroll and have a lovely dinner. It's about a 5-8 minute drive. And you can take taxis if you don't want to drive. Or walk over to the funicular to take that up. Can't say enough about Giuseppe, the owner who went out of his way to fulfill our requests and make sure we were happy. I wish I could just move in, and live here all the time. Seriously! As a side note, we stayed here with our 11 and 12 yr olds who loved it last year and this year as well. the favourite part of our Italian holiday.
