Villa | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Casa Polifemo (75 square metres) consists of 2 double bedrooms convertible into twin-bedded rooms, 2 bathrooms, a corridor with wardrobes, a living room, a mezzanine floor with 2 beds for children between 5-15 years of age, a fully equipped cooking area, a furnished pergola and a 10x10m garden.
Following the renovation of a large age-old farmhouse in our estate nearby Taormina, we have built 6 houses to spend wonderful holidays in the country, a few minutes away from Taormina centre and the seaside. Each house has a gorgeous view on the Mediterranean garden, the citrus orchard and the olive groves surrounding the property.
The view on the northern slope of Etna is likewise spectacular, and during eruptions, at night, you can watch lava flowing down. Our estate is wonderfully beautiful.
It consists of two independent buildings: the larger villa Etna and 5 smaller houses, whose names come from local mythology: Lunasole, Zeus, Leone, Trinacria and Polifemo.
The main villa and the smaller houses can be rented all together, by a single group of people willing to spend their holiday together, or separately, by different groups of guests.
Privacy between the main villa Etna and the other smaller houses is totally assured by two panelled sliding gates wich, according to our guest request, can be kept open or closed. The privacy between each smaller house is totally guaranteed by a hedge of oleanders and thin canes.
Villa Etna has an independent entrance through the vineyard, as well as an exclusive, stunning garden and a private pool overlooking the vineyard, the citrus fields and the majestic volcano. The smaller villas share a wonderful garden and a large pool with solarium and gazebo among the citrus trees.
Outdoor areas are extremely well-kept, everything shines with a deep green, assuring a cool and delightful stay even with hot temperatures.
From the Prince's houses you may enjoy the view of flowers and plants in the gardens, but also of the vineyard spreading around and almost touching villa Etna, and of citrus orchards and olive groves on the surrounding hills.
Both the exteriors and interiors of the property have been personally furnished by Prince Alliata, and the result is a series of warm and sophisticated rooms, where colours play with old prints and antique pieces of furniture, mixing with outdoor light and the green of plants and creating a really comfortable and relaxing atmosphere.
