Overview

Perched high on a cliff top on Sicily’s east coast, Taormina continues to enjoy a reputation of being both chic and charming and, with its lovely town centre, magnificent beaches and unrivalled coastal views, it is easy to see why. Villa Parmina is that rare find – a centrally located villa in Taormina with a pool and garden and enough space for large groups.

Property

Situated in a residential area above the city centre, the shops, bars and restaurants of Taormina are just a 10-minute walk away. There are stunning views from the villa, sweeping out across the town centre, the sea and further afield, Mount Etna.

Outside: The main outdoor living space is around the spectacular pool area. Alongside the pool area, with its dazzling coastal views, there is a lovely outdoor dining area with table and chairs and, behind that, a magnificent barbecue area with a wood-burning oven where you can make your own pizzas. A four-person jacuzzi is situated next to the pool.

Enjoy quiet time in the pretty plant-filled garden at the front of the villa, accessed from the veranda on the ground floor, and incorporating a charming seating area with stone benches. For the very best picture postcard views of Etna, climb the external stone staircase that leads from the garden to the top of the villa.

Inside: You enter the villa on the upper level, with the large kitchen on your left. Well-equipped and decorated with colourful majolica floor tiles, the kitchen has convenient direct access to the outdoor terrace and pool area. Continuing on past the kitchen, there is a bathroom with shower and the single room which opens out on to a lovely quiet sitting area.

Close by, the living room is split into a sitting area and separate dining space and large French windows let huge amounts of light into the already brightly-decorated room. On the same floor, the blue double bedroom with an en suite bathroom with bath.

A spiral staircase leads down to the ground floor and on to a glass-roofed veranda that has been beautifully furnished with a carved stone table and long stone sofa. From here, you can access the colourful en suite double bedroom and more classic double green bedroom with bathroom with shower. There is also another double bedroom with a en suite bathroom with shower.

Local Sights

Taormina is a charming town that constantly delights visitors. Parmina is wonderfully situated within walking distance of the main square with fantastic views. As a base for any Sicilian holiday Taormina is the perfect choice. With dramatic views over the Ionian Sea and Mount Etna, superb beaches such as Isola Bella, chic shops and boutiques, wonderful restaurants and a stylish atmosphere you are in for a treat when staying in Parmina.

Close to Taormina you will find the small hill-top town of Castelmola. Enjoy this picturesque town's extraordinary location and wonderful views from the atmospheric piazza.

Catania is not far from the villa. Home to some vibrant markets, great restaurants and shops, and Sicily's oldest university, it is a fun and colourful city and is a good place to spend the day.

There are many fabulous beaches in the area, from those in Taormina to nearby Giardini-Naxos. A little further afield is Acireale which is where you can find the famous Isole dei Ciclopi; these beautiful basalt islands are home to a great range of marine life and are a super place to go swimming.

One sight that you cannot miss is the spectacular Mount Etna, which dominates the landscape of east Sicily. This volcano has played a hugely important role in the area's history and is well worth visiting.

For more examples of natural beauty head to the Nebrodi Mountain Range. You can enjoy hikes in unspoilt scenery and take in the stunning vistas. A hike through the Alcantara Gorges is also highly recommended with its extraordinary scenery, pretty river and charming natural pools and waterfalls.


Local Experiences

You can be sure of having a wonderful holiday full of great Sicilian experiences when you stay in Parmina. East Sicily is packed full of exciting things to do and see.

To really get under the skin of the area you could book a guided tour of Catania and Taormina. One of our expert guides will take you around these fascinating cities offering you a glimpse of their pasts and showing you some hidden treasures.

Wine lovers should organise a winery tour where you can discover some of Etna's best wines. The rich volcanic soil makes this one of the top wine-growing areas in Sicily.

If food is a passion then why not enjoy a pizza or pasta making lesson in the villa. These lessons are a fun way to learn more about the secrets of Sicilian cooking and are great for groups of all ages. You can also indulge in a gourmet chef service if you Book a Cook. A fantastic meal will be prepared by a talented chef - a real Sicilian feast is guaranteed.
