Welcome to your exclusive retreat in Sicily… Set 'away from it all' on a fabulous hill top position overlooking the sparkling Ionian Sea in the Mediterranean, the villa boasts breathtaking and unrivalled views stretching across from Mount Etna to the surrounding area of Taormina on the east coast of Sicily. The villa is a traditionally built stone detached property, with air conditioning and its own private 'infinity edge' swimming pool and garden. Completely independent, the villa assures you total privacy. A large panoramic terrace and shaded patio, with a barbecue and built-in pizza oven, offer ample 'al fresco' dining space from which, at near 500 meters altitude, you will truly feel on top of the world. Inside, furnished and equipped to a high standard, the villa provides and caters for the expectations of the discerning modern traveller, whether you are holidaying as a couple, family or with friends. The villa can accommodate up to 8 people (inc 6 adults max) + 2 infants. The charm and attraction of the villa do not end there, from having the space and privacy to do whatever you please, at your own pace… or nothing at all, to visiting the area of Taormina, Castelmola and Giardini-Naxos, and local beaches all within a 20-30 minute drive. For sightseeing, Mount Etna, the Alcantara Gorge, the Aeolian islands including Stromboli, the villa provides an excellent and comfortable base in a rural and quiet location. Whether it is tranquillity, culture, sun, beaches, sightseeing or living 'la dolce vita' you are looking for, we await you... a presto! Dan and KatharineMore

About the neighbourhood
Villa Etna Mare is positioned in a stunning hillside location, 500 meters above sea level overlooking Taormina and Giardini-Naxos, with panoramic and breathtaking views stretching from the beautiful village of Castelmola to the east. The views extend far south across the Ionian Sea in the Mediterranean over the bay of Catania, sweeping west onto the majestic and often snow capped Mount Etna – the most active volcano in Europe… Located in the Sicilian province of Messina, in a sought after and rustic borough of Taormina called Castelmola, the location is ideal for couples or families and groups of friends who seek a relaxing break “away from it all” in a peaceful, secluded and private location in the countryside overlooking the sea.
Getting around
A rental car is essential to get out and about though we can easily arrange taxis/excursions to pick you up directly from the villa if you wish to leave the car behind. The last 4 miles to/from the villa will need a confident driver with a good head for heights on average 20 minutes to drive (with rough track over the last 200 yards). The villa being in a mountainous region, in a relatively isolated area located 500m above sea level, this route is along a sometimes steep, narrow and winding road with a few hairpin bends to negotiate and limited barriers. This is a small compromise, whilst you reach higher ground and are rewarded with the truly sensational and unforgettable views Villa Etna Mare has to offer... in total peace and tranquilit.
