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:

Enjoyed Least:

Driveway

Surrounding Area:

Taormina, Mt. Etna, local markets.

Nearby Events or Locales:

  • 4 of 5

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.

Enjoyed Least:

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.

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.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Marvelous, peaceful, delightful. Phenomenal view from the patio and bedrooms. I burned a picture of the view into my mind by spending at least 5 minutes every morning staring out of our bedroom window after opening the shutters.

Enjoyed Most:

It is a very large and spacious villa. We three couples travel together frequently and this villa offered us plenty of space to spread out or to sit together and play games. We experienced several days of warm and lovely weather which allowed us to enjoy the expansive patio area and furniture.

Enjoyed Least:

Because of the size of our group, we had a large van. The driveway is very steep and has two very narrow hair-pin turns. We had to carry our luggage and groceries up the driveway. It gave us a good workout each day but we didn't mind--we felt that the trek gave us license to enjoy more of the wonderful local food.

Surrounding Area:

Old Taormina. The villa is fairly near the gondola that takes people up to the old city, or you can drive and park 3/4 of the way up and take a bus the rest of the way. Don't make the mistake we did and try and drive all the way in. Big mistake! But gave us a good laugh, after we successfully navigated out. Didn't run over anyone but it was close.

Nearby Events or Locales:

There are restaurants near the gondola that can be reached by foot.

Tips or Restaurants:

Bug spray! Don't leave home without it. And itch cream. Also, they provide only Italian coffee makers. They work very well but if you've never used one, you'll want to ask for instructions.

Directions:

Use GPS!!! Getting out of Catania was a little tricky. We used GPS but it took us through town instead of taking us to the ring. Other than that, it worked very well except that we didn't know precisely what we were looking for when we got there. There is a very small bar at the base of the driveway that simply says BAR (white sign with black letters). It's not always open so there may not be anyone inside. The entrance to the villa is simply a gate. You can't see the house from the road.

Check In Out:

Get there before dark, if you can.

Location

This villa is located on the island of Sicily overlooking a small bay, and is just a short walk from the sandy beach of Spisone. 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. Most spectacularly, the well-preserved ancient Greek theatre – the second largest in Sicily ������������������������������� is perched on a rocky cliff overlooking the sea and Mount Etna. In the summer, there are concerts and other performances in the theatre. Nearby on the coast, the fishing village of Giardini Naxos has beaches, a fishing port, opportunities for boating, and restaurants specializing in fresh seafood. Jeep tours of the volcanic Mount Etna are also available, and the cities of Messina and Catania are each about 50 km away. Messina 55 km Catania 55 km Mount Etna 45 km Giardini Naxos (beaches) 6.5 km Taormina 2 km Mazzaro (beaches) 300 m
