About our home

Secluded retreat with lush walled-in garden in greater Taormina area, with pool

Romantically “tucked away”, Villa Etna sits on a fabulous hill top overlooking the Alcantara valley. It lies in the outer countryside of Taormina (a 30min drive from the city). This location boasts breathtaking and unrivaled views. Stretching across from Mount Etna, to the surrounding valley and Castiglione di Sicilia a medieval town nestled atop a hillside. Set admits its own vineyard and olive orchard, it features a lovely walled-in courtyard ensuring relaxing isolation.
The house is a cozy traditionally built lava-stone detached farmhouse with its own private garden. Completely independent, the villa assures you total privacy. A large panoramic terrace with ancient well, a BBQ and a separate balcony offer ample ‘Al fresco' dining space from which, at near 650 meters altitude, you will truly feel on top of the world. Inside the villa is furnished and equipped to a simple but tasteful and cozy standard, the villa can accommodate up to 6 people.
It has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom with shower. 2 bedrooms are downstairs at the entrance level. The 3rd bedroom is on the 2nd level and living-dining area and kitchen are on top of 3rd level. From the dining room you can step onto the balcony overlooking Mount Etna. From the living room you have direct access to the panoramic terrace and courtyard by means of an outside staircase.
There is a large pool available to you which is shared with guests of Agrihotel Antica Cavalleria, only a 3 minute easy stroll downhill.
The charm and attraction of the villa do not end there. From having the space and privacy to do as much or as little as you please, to visiting the areas of Taormina, Castelmola or Giardini-naxos. For exploring Mount Etna, the Alcantara gorge and the aeolian islands (including Stromboli), the house provides an excellent and comfortable base in a rural and quiet location. Due to its rural setting a car is highly recommended. Whatever it is you are looking for, be it a relaxing getaway, or a trip back in time, Villa Etna offers everything you could be looking for in a Sicilian vacation.
