About the property

Villa Elizabeth is an ancient 1700 mansion that belonged to the great-great-grandfather of the present owner, he was a rich Bourbon whose portrait hangs on the wall of the luxurious hall of the house. From the terrace you may view the entire gulf of Milazzo and the Aeolian Islands which are rather close to the mainland; the terrace is as well a marvellous place where to enjoy a candlelit dinner. The villa is surrounded by a spectacular garden full of ancient trees, it is very shady and cool also in summer. The area is quiet and calm, the ideal place to spend a holiday completely relaxed. At a short distance you will find a narrow road that leads down to a small pebble beach.

The villa has been maintained in its original state with the old floors, chandeliers, vases and pictures that belonged to the family, it has the aspect of an old Sicilian noble abode. The house covers an area of approximately 270 square metres divided in two large sitting-rooms with a fire place and a grand piano, an elegant corridor leads to the three bedrooms, a twin bedroom and two double bedrooms, there are two bathrooms one has a shower and the other a tub. The kitchen, although modest, is fully equipped. The garden that surrounds the house is well kept and it is very pleasant to spend there most of the day. But the main attraction is the terrace with its breathtaking view of the sea and where you can enjoy your evenings by candlelight.

The villa is truly stunni...

  • 5 of 5

The villa is truly stunning, atmospheric and individual. The owner is lovely and helpful and we were particularly grateful for the meal she cooked for us when we arrived late in the evening. We felt we were in the film set of "The Leopard" at times, this will give readers the idea what the interior of the villa is like. We also enjoyed the gardens and the view of the sea. We would have loved to have known more about the history of the house and the family, perhaps that would be an interesting addition (in other languages than Italian) to the visitor's book for future guests? Our son is a pianist and the icing on the cake would have been if the piano was in tune. Many thanks for a lovely stay, Elisa.

Villa di fascino per un soggiorno di pieno relax

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo passato un piacevolissimo soggiorno in questa villa ricca di fascino e storia siciliana. La casa risponde pienamente alla descrizione ed è collocata in un ottimo contesto che favorisce anche numerose escursioni. Un particolare ringraziamento va alla signora Elisa e sua figlia Daniela per la gradevole accoglienza riservataci e per il supporto che ci hanno saputo garantire con cortesia e discrezione.

De beaux souvenirs dans un lieu à recommander.

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une excellente semaine dans cette élégante maison conforme au descriptif et aux photos. La vue sur la mer est magnifique et Milazzo constitue un point de départ idéal pour de nombreuses visites, en particulier les îles éoliennes. Les propriétaires sont très attentionnés et ne manquent pas de donner quelques conseils. .

  • 5 of 5

The place was marvellous and compared to the other one we had the week after outstanding. It was a very nice location to see the islands and the beach was very near.

The house is so well built that it needs no A/C at all, even in the hottest summer period.

"Un sejour très agréable ...

  • 5 of 5

"Un sejour très agréable dans votre magnifique villa,dont les pavements en céramique nous ont particulièrement enchantés. Une semaine de repos après avoir parcouru une bonne partie de la Sicilie historique. La mini croisière dans les iles Eolienne fut égalerment un grand moment meme si le stromboli avait choisi de dormir ce jour là.

Merci pour votre hospitalitè

"Questi giorni passati in questo angolo di paradiso sarà difficile dimenticarli ed altrettanto difficile è poter trasformare in parole le sensazioni, la gentilezza, la disponibilità, la tranquillità che ci avete donato.

Car: necessary

Airport near Milazzo

Reggio Calabria airport (REG) 1hrs 07min 5 Catania airport (CTA) 3hrs 03min 40

Palermo airport (PMO) 4hrs 18min 43

The promontory of Capo Milazzo is rich in vegetation and very well kept. There are a few small beaches that can be reached through some not very difficult paths, but they are worth the effort. The view from the terrace of the old light-house is superb. On the promontory stands the ancient fishermen district of Milazzo, during summer tha place becomes crowded with tourists, on the other side of town, before the new harbour, is the old fishermen port where quite often are the stands that sell local fresh fish. You shouldn’t miss a visit to the lakes of Tindari, the beaches of Gioiosa Marea and the Aeolian Islands that you can reach in half an hour by hydrofoil. Rather close are also Mount Etna, the Alcantara Gorges, Taormina, the Natural Park of the Nebrodi Mountains and Santo Stefano di Camastra.
