The superb location of Villa Calypso makes it particularly suitable for families with children; is the perfect home base to reach the most important tourist destinations not only in the eastern region of Sicily but of the whole island. The mild climate makes it also a half enjoyable in all seasons: the best time is from May to July; in June is especially nice assist, among other initiatives, the Taormina Film Festival. The spring and autumn is suitable to enjoy the beach and the sea in general. The proximity to the Etna (only 45 km), makes the villa enjoyable even in the colder months when skiing near the main crater of the volcano is a truly unique experience (ski lifts at Lingfield Etna north).More
