Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, 3 Panoramic Terraces, Garden, free WiFi

Villa Antiope is the perfect example of a luxurious elegance and good taste. Of a well measured and welcoming richness, it is far from any vulgar or severe pomp. It’s a very exclusive residence, located in one of the most beautiful and charming places in Sicily: Taormina.

The front door is reachable by 3 flights of stairs. The house is distributed on three floors to which correspond three panoramic terraces – equipped with refined tables and wrought iron chairs - surrounded by greenery, offering a breathtaking view: Etna sliding on a crystal blue sea.

The villa follows the slope of the hill on which it was built, has two bathrooms, three bedrooms with six beds and two living rooms, both with fireplace.

Not to mention the kitchen, furnished with rustic furniture, bright and well equipped. Even from here you can observe the majesty of Etna, thanks to the large scenic window.

Airy and bright, it has long been owned by a British painter of the twentieth century and will not be difficult to imagine what kind of masterpieces such a place like that has been able to inspire.

The villa is located three minutes driving from the center of Taormina.

Impossible not to fall in love!

Free WiFi included.

Spectacular views.

  • 3 of 5

Although the views were spectacular, the location of the property required a significant amount of climbing if you were going into the town of Taromina. Parking was adequate at best. Amenities were first class, but heavy rains had caused water damage and mold in some areas of the villa. The manager Mrs Margeretta and the VRBO representative Francesco were the very best! Excellent service! At our age, we would probably not rent this property again. We are in our mid 60's.

Owner's Response: Dear Larry, thank you for appreciating our service. We always do our best in order to guarantee to our guests the best stay. At the same time, we are sad you only gave 3 stars. In fact, the stairs depend on the position of the house, and it is this position that makes unique Villa Antiope and that let our guests enjoy a wonderful view of the coast and Etna at the same time. We are also sorry for the bad storm which hit the town! The worst one of the last 20 years!! It might compromise your review..

Beautiful property, great experience

  • 4 of 5

We were two couples and two children who stayed for a week on the property. It was perfect ! There was plenty of space and we couldn't take enough advantage of all the terraces which were so many. The view of Mt. Etna and Giardino Naxos beach was spectacular. My husband and I stayed in the upper suite with amazing views to fall asleep and wake up in the morning. Although the suite was great it was in a great need of an update. The center of Taormina is a 15 min walk or less but very steep especially when you return back to the villa. Overall, great experience!

Beautiful villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week stay at this villa with it's beautifully decorated interior and lovely gardens outside. The 3 levels provide many places to sit and relax and enjoy the views. The master bedroom on the top level has a picture window with Mount Etna in the distance. We love walking and so enjoyed our daily trips down the many stairways leading to Taormina where there are dozens of excellent restaurants and shops. We felt completely safe returning as the stairways are mostly well-lit. If you aren't comfortable with stairs, this villa may not work for you - for the rest of us, great exercise!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is one of the most beautiful properties I’ve ever seen.

The structure is very unusual because the house follows the slope of the hill.

The house is elegant, very well equipped, with lovely terraces.

Taormina is a breathtaking place, we enjoyed everything concerning our holiday.

Thank you!

Taormina is one of the most popular tourist place not only in Sicily, but in Italy. As soon as you arrive here, you will experience mythical atmospheres, unique landscapes, timeless beauties. This little village offers its visitors lots to do and to see: the preservation of history and culture, that you can admire in the majesty of the Greek theatre; the best of Sicilian cuisine, with a wide choice of restaurants, pizzerias, pastry shops, etc..; the beauty of nature, whose greatest expression is Etna volcano, the biggest and active one all over Europe which offers incomparable sight.

Taormina rises up on the hill of Monte Tauro and overlooks the volcano from one side and two big bays from the other side. A big panoramic terrace in the main square will offer you a breathtaking landscape of this “patch of paradise”, as Goethe call the town in its “Italian Journey”.

Taormina is a renowned and crowded tourist destination not only in summer, because its mild climate makes it the ideal place where spending the holidays in every period of the year.

***************************************

Etna Volcano

Etna is one of the most active volcano in the world and the highest one in Europe. The Mount and the surrounding area form part of the Parco dell’Etna Regional Nature Park which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is a very popular tourist destination thanks to the majesty of the volcano and its activity; it has been erupting for half a million years. It gives a spectacular view to the visitors of the surrounding villages when it erupts, particularly when both summit and flank eruptions occur simultaneously.

******************************************

What to see in Taormina

Greek Theatre: an invaluable cultural heritage surrounded by a great view: Etna volcano, Naxos gulf and lush vegetation. History, Culture and natural beauty blend together mesmerizing the visitors!

Isola Bella: it is a little island very close to the mainland, easily reaching on foot when the tide is low. The coast, the crystalline sea, the villa on the island and its vegetation ravish every eyes!

Castelmola: it is an ancient Medieval hamlet above Taormina which is included among the most beautiful hamlets in Italy. This little village is located on the top of a mountain that overlooks the Ionio Sea. It boasts a very excellent landscape, one of the most striking in this area.
