La Villa is a 5 minute drive from the sea, from the historical centre of town and from a small shopping centre. It is a 10 minute walk to the bus-stop.
For our summer guests who decide to visit the surrounding areas we suggest they rent a car or a scooter.
There are various places of interest within easy reach by car or scooter. For example it is:
5 min to Giardini Naxos seafront from where you can admire the splendid view across the bay while enjoying excellent seafood in one of the many restaurants.
10 minute drive to Taormina. Visit the Greek theatre, the Naumachie, the communal gardens (villa) and admire the breathtaking view from Piazza IX Aprile. Stroll along the fashionable Corso Umberto. Stop to sip an aperitif at one of the local bars or restaurants to be discovered if you wander up or down the steps of the narrow side-streets.
After dinner the evening continues at Taormina’s renowned night-clubs.
10 minute drive to Letojanni. Walk along the sea-front and sample excellent ice –cream and delicious water-ices(granita)
10 minute drive to Isola Bella, “Pearl of the Mediterranean”, a tiny island situated between the bay of Mazzarò and Cape Taormina. It’s connected to the shore by a tongue of land which disappears at high-tide.
20 minute drive up to Castelmola, the medieval town above Taormina, where you can sample its famous almond wine.
20 minute drive to le Gole dell’ Alcantara. A spectacular destination for nature-lovers. Over the course of thousands of years the Alcantara river has eroded the ancient lava-flows, which once dominated the area, forming deep ravines and gorges. You can wade along the crystal-clear river for about 200 m; gazing up at the walls of the gorges, 25 m. high in places.
