Wonderful Sicilian luxury villa (XVIII century) surrounded by greenery, animals and a breathtaking views. We are in one of the most beautiful areas of the island between the UNESCO site of Volcano Etna and marvellous sea of Taormina. Inside, the villa (120 sqm) spread over two levels. At first there is the kitchen and a big living-room where you can also find a sofa bed. All bedrooms (25 sqm each one !) are very big, wide and panoramics.
Every bedroom has got a private bathroom. In total the villa can sleep up to 9 people (3 per rooms). The villa is fully immersed in a green area of 5000 sqm with centuries-old trees, in a peaceful atmosphere. Here there is a marvellous pool (12x5 meters), maybe the best point of this place, a haven of wealth and tranquillity. Outside you can also find a barbecue set.
The price includes weekly cleaning and a typical Sicilian breakfast for all the days of your staying, prepared by the Chef Silvana Recupero.
This property belongs to a member of MAMMASICILY (or Il Console), the exclusive Sicilian Association chaired by the distinguished Sicilian chef Silvana Recupero and by her husband, 'the motorwriter' (Rai, Chin ... Canada) Giovanni Vallone who personally guarantee the quality of the structure.

The Sicily region
Sicily is the land of sun, sea and history. The land where the sky is perennially the colour of sapphire, the domain of dolphin and swordfish. The land where you can find natural settings for sport and relaxations. The land where you can feel history simply looking into the eyes of locals, living witnesses of the past dominations.
In Sicily climate oscillates between 15°C (January) and 40°C, and sometimes more, in July-August.
Presa is a peaceful village situated in the Etna-Taormina district. The romantic village is a perfect place to enjoy a wonderful and unforgettable Sicilian holiday. There are few places in Sicily, which enjoy a climate, a nature and an overview of this type. In the village there is a restaurant, Pizzeria, Bar, one market, one church, one postal office, one plaza, zero noises ! Here, life goes on, slow and quiet. Also, we are one step away from the two most visited places in the island: Mount Etna and the sea of Taormina.
