What do you think makes Taormina one of the most beautiful places in the world? Maybe its spectacular Greek Roman Theatre with summer performances attracting tourists from every corner of the world? or it could be its fascinating Medieval streets draped with galleries and framed by ancient stone-arches? Or maybe stunning views of Mount Etna, European tallest active volcano, often capped with snow? When we think about Taormina, the first thing coming in mind is Isola Bella, a charming tiny island set underneath Taormina's bay. Connected to the inland by a narrow path, Isola Bella is the symbol of Sicily's most popular resort and anyone visiting Taormina can't resist taking a picture of it from any of the terraces overlooking the wonderful bay. Wouldn't it be great to have your own spacious private terrace overlooking Isola Bella and enjoy its view lying back on a sun-lounger while sharing a cold drink with your friends? Here at soloSicily we strive to make your dreams come true. We are extremely pleased to introduce Benvoluta.
Benvoluta is on two floors. On the ground floor, one enters the spacious living area featuring a sitting area with comfortable sofas surrounding the space, right in front of ample floor-to-ceiling glass doors which can be slid open, enabling access to a large outdoor balcony with breathtaking views of Isola Bella and Taormina beach right under your nose. Behind the sitting area is a dining corner with easy access to a fully-equipped kitchen and pantry room. Opposite the dining area, is a large studio connected to the living room while, behind it, is a double bedroom with ensuite.
A comfortable staircase leads upstairs, directly to the main sleeping quarter consisting of two double bedrooms with ensuite and a triple and a twin bedroom sharing a bathroom with tube. Outside the bedrooms upstairs, is a bright foyer with access to a huge terrace, fully fitted and furnished, overlooking one of the most beautiful beaches in Sicily, with charming Isola Bella at a short walking distance. The private terrace is furnished with sun-loungers, a dining table with chairs, sunshades and offers a gorgeous view of Taormia bay stretching as far as eye can see.
Benvoluta is set in Taormina, a charming hillside town located on the eastern coast of Sicily, close to plenty of sights and wonderful attractions. The property is very close to Mt. Etna and to its picturesque tiny villages perched on its flanks. Alcantara Gorges and their spectacular rocks are close enough as well, while Catania and Syracuse are a short drive down the coast. The property is also close to the Nebrodi Mountains, a national park boasting wonderful natural landscapes and great walking opportunities.
