The “Dama d’altri Tempi” in Giarre is located halfway between Catania and Taormina, close to the important tourist port of Riposto and near the slopes of Etna. It has been immaculately finished, combining modern functionality with touches of the antique beauty of what was once a noble’s palace dating back to the early 1900’s.
The inside of the historic building has undergone a complete renovation in 2018, adopting modern methodology, innovative and creative solutions. The results are evident, both in the attention to architectural and ornamental details as well as in the conservation / recovery of the original frescoes.
The building can be used as a single home or as 2 separated properties. On the lower floor there is a large room of over 130 square meters which, in ancient times, was a waxworks, and now is an open living space. The house has 3 master bedrooms (with en suite bathrooms) as well as a further 2 bathrooms. There are also two separate fully equipped and kitchens, 2 dining rooms as well as large halls and living rooms. There are also 3 jacuzzi’s, two of which are double seater’s and one is a 4 seater, 2 “lighted” showers and a sauna where you can unwind and relax. The large outdoor terraces will allow you to enjoy the magnificent Sicilian climate. Both terraces have breathtaking views of Mount Etna and the nearby coastline. The property is ideal for someone who wants to enjoy a piece of tranquillity in Sicily while still enjoying the comfort of an exquisite house finished to the highest quality, all within an elegant historic building.
It can also serve the high end tourist market because as mentioned the property can easily be spilt into 2 separate properties, something that the current owners already do and which allows them to have income from it as a holiday home.
