What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
The secret of the property is to be very close to the sea and to the center of Taormina but in the meantime completely away from all in the relax, serenity and charme of the Sicilian countryside. There is a manteinor everyday for any problem occurring and the owner lives in the estate.

Celebrated my 60 th with 25 members of my family.
Monica and her team Maria the cook made us all feel at home.
We had a typical Italian breakfast every morning and a delightful dinner every evening.From outside you had a spectacular view of Mount Etna and its about 20 mins drive to Taormina.
Dear Adrian many thanks for the review. We were delighted to host you and your group. Hope to see you again soon in the property.
The perfect base for exploring...east of Sicily
Nestled among grape vines and fruit trees, Le Case del Principe is a relaxing oasis just below Taormina, near the sea with soaring views of Etna. The rooms are immaculate, lovingly decorated in the local style and the food is out of this world. It's one of those places where time seems to stand still and let's you reconnect with yourself and nature.
Hello Simone many thanks. Your review is gorgeous !
Delightful holiday stay
Our group of twenty adults spent a wonderful two weeks at Le Case del Principe. We rented cars at the airport in Catania and used the villa as a base for exploring Etna and the vicinity. The driving was challenging at times, with twisting roads to hill towns, but let us see many off the beaten path spots. The property was even more lovely than pictured, with quiet corners for reading, and shady gathering spots for large group dinners. We rented the entire estate so there was privacy and comfort for all. There was also a bocce court which provided opportunity for lively evening competitions.
The grounds were beautifully maintained with lemon trees and colorful flowers surrounding the pool areas. Monica and the other staff members were responsive to all our needs, and the meals prepared for us by Maria and Antoinetta featured fresh local ingredients in traditional Sicilian recipes. Outstanding!
We appreciated Monica's help in arranging day trips to Agrigento and Piazza Armerina, a fabulous wine tasting at Gambino Vini, and a night out for pizza at Flora. We also enjoyed waking into town for cappuccino and croissants in the mornings.
Other day trips included exploring Mt. Etna , Alcantra Gorges, Taormina, Enna, Castiglione , Savoca, and other picturesque spots. Those who love ceramics were particularly satisfied by the shops in Caltagirone.
A highlight for us all was a concert by the tenors "IL Volo" in the spectacular setting of the ancient Greek theater in Taormina with Mt. Etna as a backdrop.
I would definitely recommend the property to others. We were sad to say farewell to Monica who who became like a family member to our group.
So many thanks for the fantastic review
Beautiful Relaxing Villa
Our group was 15 people including 3 small kids. We each had our own bedrooms and bathrooms. Each area had a living room. But the highlight of this property was the covered patio, with a table large enough for all of us to dine together. There is also a quite a bit of nice patio furniture to enjoy. All of this beautiful area is surrounded by vineyards, lemon, orange and grapefruit trees. We were very close to Taormina, and the beach, but you could just stay at the villa and be perfectly content. Monica put together our trips to Mt. Etna, the Gambino Vineyard, and the Godfather tour. They were all fabulous, with our own van, and the same driver each day. Maria cooked for us at least three night, and I highly recommend this at least once. She is quite an accomplished chef and we enjoyed her meals more than local restaurants. The location was prime, not far from the Catania airport, Taormina, Castelmola, the beach and several beautiful cities. The owner Principe Gabriele, Monika, Maria, and Antoinette (don't know if I got that right) really did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable. If you decide to stay here please go with their ideas on what to see and do in the area, but schedule some downtime to just enjoy the property. One thing I forgot to mention but is very important to me is that the property is very clean.
Many thanks your group was fantastic.
Wing family and friends Sicilian adventure.
We had a group of 18 stay at the Case del Principe. We had a wonderful stay. Monica took great care of us. Maria the chef made so many wonderful meals- it was like a culinary heaven.
The grounds- with the sights and smells of the lemon groves and wine vineyards were nothing short of extraordinary.
I highly recommmend this villa and their staff.
Dear Chris many thanks for the review. We were all delighted to know you and your group. Your review encourages us to go on with enthusiasm in our activity. I hope to see you again in the property. Thanks again Gabriele
Extraordinary villa in Taormina!!!
We were a party of 8 Anericans looking for a place in Sicily to serve as a base for our exploration of the area and celebration of our son's wedding. Our son chose the perfect place in booking Le Case del Príncipe. This villa has six lovely ensuite bedrooms, a huge family kitchen and ample indoor and outdoor common areas, along with a large pool and deck area. We were greeted by the wonderful Monica, guest manager of the property. We were made to feel right at home and Monica was so helpful with a huge generosity of spirit. The house cook was Mary. We had a specially prepared traditional Sicilian dinner one evening that was a culinary masterpiece. The Prince chose wisely in having these wonderful women representing him and his glorious Villa. Our stay at Le Case del Príncipe was the single most memorable vacation of my life. Our thanks to the Prince, Monica and Mary. You will truly fall in love with this beautiful place with the magnificent Mt. Etna in the background
Thanks for the review. I hope to see you again in the property one day...
