With sweeping views of the coastline, this home's crowning glory is undoubtedly its outdoor space, but the inside doesn't hurt to look at either. Find yourself charmed by the decorative art and playful tiles as you explore every nook and cranny in search of the perfect reading spot. The living space offers a seat where you can curl up next to the grand fireplace, but the kitchen offers ample light and access to the outdoors whilst also putting you close to the coffee. Spend entire days in and around the pool or sunbathing as the sun journeys across the sky. Take the cable car down to Mazzarò and make a day of building sandcastles on the beach or frolicking in the crystalline waters. Enjoy coffee in a pavement cafe in Taormina or visit the historic Giardini Naxos in minutes. Make it back in time for sunset drinks in the hot tub as you keep your eye trained on the enchanting views of Isola Bella. With the rooms spread across the villa and its annexes, there's a good measure of privacy for big groups travelling together whilst still being able to come together outside to enjoy the peace and beauty on offer here.
