Grecale's location is really something special. Perched above Giardini-Naxos, set in a private residence, Grecale looks out over Taormina and the Ionian Sea. This bright and welcoming villa is extremely comfortable, with space for up to eight guests. There is lots of outdoor space, including a great pool and a wonderful terrace that makes the most of those views.


Outside: The outside space is wonderful at Grecale. A large pool is near the villa, surrounded by sunloungers, an umbrella and a manicured lawn dotted with mature trees. Near the pool is a covered veranda with a dining table that is ideal for al fresco meals. Climb a few steps and there is a stylish shady gazebo with a comfortable outdoor seating area and jaw-dropping views. The upper level of the villa also has a wonderful terrace from which you can see the Ionian Sea, Taormina and Castelmola.

Inside: Grecale is set across two floors. Enter in the upper level and you will find yourself in a luminous sitting room with large floor-to ceiling windows that look out to sea. Comfortably furnished with lovely white sofas, the lovely terrace can be accessed from this room through the sliding doors. There is also a guest bathroom. A lovely double bedroom, with a stylish ensuite bathroom with shower and bath, is also on this upper floor.

A traditional dining room, with access to the garden, is on the lower floor. A fully equipped modern kitchen is next door, with access to the veranda outside where you can enjoy al fresco meals. Three further double bedrooms are found on this floor. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, one of which has a hydromassage bath for two.


Local Sights

Giardini-Naxos is the closest town to Grecale. With a lovely beach that is very popular with locals, as well as some good restaurants and bars, it is a wonderful town to have as a base during your time in Sicily.

Visible from the villa's terrace is the stylish town of Taormina. Having entranced visitors for centuries, Taormina is like nowhere else. Its pretty town centre is a delight, with wonderful views out to sea. The Greek-Roman theatre is impressive, whilst its beaches, such as Isola Bella, are heavenly for a day by the sea.

Take a break from the beach and visit Catania, Sicily's second city. Full of shops, restaurants and bars, and with a buzzing atmosphere, Catania is wonderful for a day out.

Mount Etna shapes the Sicilian landscape and is one of the island's most popular destinations. Visit this active volcano, enjoy the unique scenery, the extraordinary views and the excitement of standing on Europe's largest active volcano!

Drive to the Riviera dei Ciclopi. This stretch of coast has beautiful views, with basalt islands jutting out from the water. It is a haven for marine life and a great place for snorkelling. Towns such as Acireale and Acicastello are wonderful for a coffee break and a passeggiata.


Local Experiences

Enjoy a trip around the coastline's beautiful bays, swimming in crystal waters. A boat trip is a wonderful way to relax and enjoy a fun day out during your holiday in Sicily.

There are many ways to enjoy Mount Etna. Book a jeep tour where you will see the majestic scenery and enjoy great views. You could also take part in a winery tour, visiting one of the famous wineries on the slopes of the volcano. Adventure-lovers would also enjoy a guided hike to the summit.

For a unique experience, book a vintage Fiat 500 tour. During this fun experience, you can drive around the beautiful east Sicily countryside in the iconic car. You'll see pretty villages and lovely nature during your time behind the wheel.

There are wonderful opportunities for foodies in the area too. Book a street food tour in Catania, during which you will taste some of the local specialities and get to know the local markets. Or, if you want something really special, book an in-villa cook service where a local cook will come to the villa and prepare a Sicilian meal especially for you and your guests!


The pool is open to guests from 11th April to 24th October.
