In the midst of a peaceful and flourishing park and garden, this villa apartment has extensive grounds full of trees, plants, and flowers- plus a shared swimming pool! What's especially great about this rental is the fact that you can see Mount Etna in the background!

This property was very close to Catania, Taormina, and a great location for exploring that whole region. Our family enjoyed the markets for all kinds of food and a wonderful bakery and espresso bar in town.
The kitchen was high tech new Italian style--very nice to use, with an old fashioned balcony at one end. We often ate on the deck outside overlooking the pool and gardens. The bedrooms were filled with antiques, but usable ones. The master bedroom is huge, and has been redecorated, probably in the 60's with very interesting furniture of that period. The bathrooms were remodeled about the same time.
The house was much more formal than our previous rental, with the living area upstairs, which was a disappointment, but the family lived in the quarters on the ground floor.
We did a day trip to Siracusa and a baroque city - Noto -rebuilt after an earthquake in the 1600's.

We went to Italy for 3 weeks in 2003. We spent one week in a Castello in Tuscany and another week in several places in Northern Italy. We had never been to Sicily before, didn't know anyone who had, and had some real reservations about Internet rentals. Boy, were we pleasantly surprised. The Rentvillas process was beyond painless. It was supportive. The arrangements were flawless and the owners of the property were the most gracious hosts. The accommodations were luxurious. I cant wait to go back!
Luxurious and private!
Lack of public transportation.
The beauty of Sicily and accessibility to Taormina.
