Memories of our Villa Bougainvillea holiday will last a lifetime. The villa is spacious, well-appointed and perfectly located. Every day, from the villa's mountain-side perch, we enjoyed the sights of Taormina below, Castelmola above, Mount Etna to the south-west and the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean. Just perfect!
As the parents of five, with several grandchildren, the villa suited us well. Three of our children and their families and visited during our month-long stay, along with two of our cousins and their families. At one point, we had ten people (including one infant) in the villa at the same time. There was plenty of room for all and we all enjoyed the luxury of the villa's swimming pool.
For the mid-agers and youngsters among us, the walk from the villa down to and up from Taormina was a delight, and so too was walk from the villa up to and down from Castelmola. I found said walks more challenging than did my wife who is a more fit 76 year old.
Gorgio, what can I say? We just loved it ... all of it. Two of our children and a hand-full of grandchildren were unable to make this trip. So, God willing, we will be back. Next time with the balance of our family will join us. My grandparents were from the Enna province and we have cousins who live in that part of Sicily. We visit Sicily every three or four years, so we will be back.
Too, I cannot close without stating that Silvana was a delight. You are fortunate to have such an able property manager. She could not have been more helpful whenever the need arose.
Thank you for sharing your villa with us.
