Benvoluta is a spacious villa, in one of Sicily’s most popular resorts, easily able to accommodate large groups or two families. The villa’s enormous outdoor terraces overlook Taormina beach and the tiny island of Isola Bella and the cable car up to the boutiques, cafés and ‘gelaterie’ of Taormina centre is a 15-minute walk away.


Situated in a residential part of the town and about a 10-minute walk from the beach at Isola Bella, La Benvoluta looks directly out over Taormina Bay. A road runs between the property and the seafront but you can see the sea from La Benvoluta.

Outside: There is no garden but the two large terraces, one on each floor of the property, both have sea views. The balcony on the ground floor, furnished with table and chairs, is accessed from the living room and has breathtaking views of Isola Bella and Taormina beach. On the upper floor, the enormous terrace has sun-loungers, a dining table and chairs, umbrellas and a view of Taormina Bay that stretches as far as the eye can see.

Inside: A spacious living area is effectively divided into two which works well for families or large groups. To one side, a large seating area has plenty of sofas for everyone and floor-to-ceiling glass doors that lead out to the balcony. As an alternative dining-area to the outdoor terrace, a table and chairs are situated just behind this seating area with easy access from the kitchen. A small room provides additional storage space nearby.

To the other side of the living area, there is a second sitting-room with direct access to a double bedroom with en suite bathroom.

Upstairs, painted wooden furniture adds character to the very comfortable rooms. The two double bedrooms both have en suite bathrooms and the twin and triple bedrooms share a bathroom. A corridor leads from the stairs to the large upstairs terrace.


Local Sights

Taormina is one of Sicily's top holiday destinations and it does not disappoint. With its spectacular setting and fantastic views, not to mention the fabulous beaches at Isola Bella or Mazzarò and its charming centro storico, Taormina is a wonderful place to spend your holiday in Sicily.

For more great beaches and clear waters, make your way to the Riviera dei Ciclopi near Acireale. This stretch of coast has some lovely beaches, and the basalt islands that emerge from the water are a haven for marine life and so are a super spot for snorkelling. The beach found in Giardini-Naxos is another lovely place to spend the day.

For a break from the beach then visit Catania, Sicily's second-largest city. Its buzzing atmosphere and great city centre make Catania a pleasure to visit. Stop off at one of the city's famous markets for a true taste of life in Catania.

Take a drive inland and stop off at traditional towns such as Forza d'Agrò and Savoca, both known as locations from the Godfather films. Hill-top Castelmola is worth seeing with its wonderful views and pretty, winding streets.

Cool of at the incredible Alcantara Gorges. You'll find incredibly natural scenery, cool water and great hikes, swimming opportunities and views! It's a unique place to visit that is often missed by other tourists - check it out!

It would be impossible to visit this area of Sicily and avoid Mount Etna. The volcano towers about east Sicily in all its glory. Mount Etna is truly majestic and should not be missed on any trip to this part of the island. There are many charming small towns on the slopes, such as Trecastagni or Milo, which are lovely places to visit.

Local Experiences

Explore Sicily's marvellous coast with a boat trip starting from Taormina. During your hours on the sea you can get to know some of Sicily's most beautiful beaches, enjoy dips in the sea and relax completely. Taormina is also a popular spot for water sports. There are many places to rent equipment or take a class. Why not have a go at diving, kayaking or SUP?

The rich volcanic soil of Mount Etna creates wonderful conditions for growing vines, and the wines produced on the slopes of Mount Etna are considered by many to be some of Sicily's best. Take a tour of one of the many great wineries and learn about this fascinating world. You'll also be able to taste some of the product - definitely a bonus! There are many other great ways of discovering Mount Etna. Choose from a wide range of experiences such as a jeep safari, a gentle hike, sunset tours or perhaps even a flight over the volcano in a helicopter.

For a relaxing night off from the kitchen you should Book a Cook and enjoy a home-cooked, Sicilian meal in the comfort of your villa. Taste wonderful, traditional dishes made using the freshest ingredients.

We can also help organise guided tours of Catania and Taormina where you will be shown the towns' hidden secrets by an expert guide.

For a quirky few hours you could book a Fiat 500 tour: travel in a Fiat 500 through some of east Sicily's most beautiful towns - such as Savoca and Forza d'Agrò - where you will see several locations used in the Godfather movies.

If you happen to be in Taormina in June then you will be able to enjoy some glamour during the Taormina Film Festival. During this week-long event, Taormina becomes even more elegant than usual and is full of film stars. The Greek-Roman theatre shows films, hosts award ceremonies and becomes the focal point of this festival. If you love films, don't miss out!
