  • 5 of 5

Overall:

My family and I loved Villa Spisone. The villa was old world charming, and the views from the various outside areas were sublime. We loved being within walking distance of several beautiful beaches and the cable car to charming Taormina. We could not have asked for a better home and location for our adventures in Eastern Sicily!

Enjoyed Most:

The villa's location and views were amazing. To wake up looking out at the sea and to spend evenings sipping wine looking out at the same beautiful scene were the highlights of our stay. After a day of cycling and sightseeing, the villa was a lovely refuge to come home to.

Enjoyed Least:

As my family has several want-to-be chefs, the kitchen was a bit small for them all to be working together, but the upside was that gave everyone more time for sitting outside enjoying the view, the company and the local wine!

Surrounding Area:

The beaches below the villa, especially Isola Bella, were outstanding, and we enjoyed being able to cable up to Taormina in the evening when the sun was setting for drinks or dinner. The villa was also a wonderful location for cycling along the coast and around Etna, wine tasting on the north side of Etna, and day trips by car and bike to the hill towns and beaches on the southeast side of Sicily.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Taormina was a short walk and cable car away, but for groceries and morning cappuccino we relied on the small shops and bars below the villa that were within walking distance and markets in or near Mazzaro, which is a short distance by car.

Tips or Restaurants:

Bring your sense of wonder and adventure because you are in for a real treat to old-world luxury and comfort. The beaches below the villa are rocky, so we recommend water shoes for easier entrance in and out of the water. Be sure to enjoy a meal or two at any of the fine restaurants in Taormina, especially those on the quieter side streets away from the crowds. We found the restaurant recommendations provided by the host were superb!

Directions:

We had no trouble finding the villa using GPS. The villa's entrance is easy to miss the first time, but once you know the landmarks, the gate becomes a familiar and welcoming sight because you know you have come back to the beauty and peacefulness of your temporary Sicilian home!

Check In Out:

The check-in and out process went smoothly, and the local host was delightful, full of good advice about the area, restaurants, etc

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

This was everything we wanted, and exceeded our expectations, in a villa. It has been in the same family for 5 generations and has been maintained and renovated with love and caring.

The owner, Simonetta, is delightful and interested in your comfortable stay.

The views are without exception captivating. The comfort and joy of exploration of the gardens, seating areas (outside and in) add to the overall positive experience which wants to make you return!

We left desiring to return. Can recommend Villa Spisone for whomever wants a real villa experience with privacy, stunning views and comfort throughout.

Enjoyed Most:

Views, privacy, overall comfort level throughout!

Enjoyed Least:

Driveway

Surrounding Area:

Taormina, Mt. Etna, local markets.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Taormina via cable car. Great ride with fantastic views.

Tips or Restaurants:

Simonetta has a great list of restaurants. We discovered "Vista Mare" in Taormina. Fantastic views, great food - past, veal, pizza.

Great service.

Directions:

GPS worked.

Check In Out:

Simonetta was delightful and very helpful. Obviously, enjoys the process and has a deep love of the property and makes you feel at home the moment you arrive!

Overall:

The property was as described.

Enjoyed Most:

The villa was very quaint and well maintained. The patio areas are large with beautiful views of the coastline.

Difficult driveway to negotiate but knew that going in. The location, although convenient, is located near a major road. Additionally, there is a railway about 200 yards below and across the street.

Surrounding Area:

Taormina was beautiful with no shortage of fabulous restaurants

Nearby Events or Locales:

Yes, and several very good restaurants, as well.

Tips or Restaurants:

The owner and past renters have compiled an extensive list of restaurants and things to do.

Directions:

No, but a GPS was helpful.

Check In Out:

No, the owner was very sweet and accommodating.

  • 4 of 5

Overall:

I traveled with five girlfriends. We loved the property as it afforded us the opportunity to gather and share.

Enjoyed Most:

The spectacular views.

The outdoor area was outstanding.

The security precautions.

Enjoyed Least:

The driveway was a challenge, with steep hills and sharp curves.

Surrounding Area:

Taormina is a beautiful town. We relied on public transportation and walked to most places. We also ventured outside the immediate area by hiring a driver.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Mazzaro is nearby and we walked. There were no sidewalks, so we walked on the side of the street. It was sometimes frightening because of cars and scooters speeding by.

Tips or Restaurants:

Electrical outlets were a problem. The adapters and converters we brought did not work. Bring adapters and converters with 3 prongs.

Directions:

We had driver from airport to the property. He had no trouble finding it.

Check In Out:

It all went well.

Overall:

Beautiful property. Comfortable accommodations. Very pleasant proprietor.

Enjoyed Most:

Views!

Enjoyed Least:

Kitchen - lacking in ample electrical outlets.

Surrounding Area:

Taormina area was exquisite!

Nearby Events or Locales:

Isola Bella was closest - a walk up the hill. Going into Taormina required transportation. We drove and took the shuttle and another day we walked up the hill and took the Funicular.

Tips or Restaurants:

Bring washcloths and bars of soap.

Directions:

We did use a GPS but met the property owner at the bottom of the long driveway, so that was fine.

Check In Out:

Checking in was a challenge because we missed our flight connections which made it very late for us to arrive at the villa (around 11:00 PM) but the owner was very gracious about meeting us. Check out was smooth and again we had to leave the villa by 3:00 AM; the owner was there to send us off.

In the summer, you can walk to the town of Mazzaro, which has shops and restaurants. Less than half a kilometer from the villa, you can catch a gondola-style cable car that quickly climbs the 200 meters to the hillside town of Taormina, which has shopping, restaurants, cafes, and views of the sea and nearby Mount Etna. Taormina has a rich history, as a former Greek and later Roman outpost, reflected in the town’s ruins and archeological sites.

In the summer, there are concerts and other performances in the theatre.
