A very pretty rural stone house situated in the hills around Taormina with a splendid view of the valley that slopes down to the sea and the pretty village of Castelmola.

The skilful renovation has preserved the typical character of this country house with antique floors, exposed beams, wrought iron elements, built-in kitchens, stairways and typical Sicilian decorative elements that give it an atmosphere of great warmth.

The magnificent terrace that surrounds the house allows you to enjoy a spectacular and relaxing view of the verdant valley with spaces for relaxation and magnificent dinners or al-fresco lunches with an outdoor barbecue, while the manicured terraces lead to the olive groves (approx 6,000m2) and to another panoramic point, where it is possible to install a small swimming pool and a barbecue corner.

The entrance opens on to a spacious living area with double height ceilings, connected to the fully equipped and functional kitchen. There is also a comfortable and refined bathroom with shower and an internal staircase that leads to the mezzanine floor where the double bed is located.

Adjacent to the house there is a small derelict outbuilding, which is part of the property, which would make it possible to expand the surface by building 2 more rooms with bathroom.

The main villa is 70 m2. The outbuilding of 50 m2 adjacent is in need of restoration plus included is 6000 m2 of land partly planted with olive trees.

Taormina is one of the most interesting tourist destinations in Sicily. It is known worldwide for its landscape, natural beauties, seashore and its wonderful monuments. This charming city is located 200 metres above sea level on a piece of land shaped like a natural terrace, from which it is possible to enjoy one of the world’s greatest views – the majestic Mount Etna.  Taormina has something for everyone, whether they be local or a tourist: winding streets, alleyways and staircases strewn with bars, cafés, restaurants, art galleries, designer fashion shops, ceramics, antiques and souvenir shops, small squares around corners, beautifully restored medieval buildings and the ancient amphitheatre.

Tourism is part of the city’s life all year long, encouraged not only by its natural and cultural beauties, but also by very well working accommodation and recreational facilities, in addition to the typical Sicilian warmth.
