Apartment Villa Virginia is newly built and located in an amazing hillside position in Taormina. Offering un-rivalled panoramic views of Mount Etna, the Bay of Naxos, Mainland Italy, Madonna della Rocca E Saracen Castle.
This brand new Villa consists of four one-bedroom apartments.
Each apartments are bright and spacious, with fantastic sea views and plenty of outdoor space - something that we know is important to our guests. Our aim was to create a holiday apartment that offers that little bit more, it's the extra touches that often make all the difference..
Head to the centre of cosmopolitan Taormina and its main street 'Corso Umberto' and you will be overwhelmed by historical architecture, designer boutiques, pavement cafè's, wonderful restaurants and beautiful piazza's.
Villa Virginia is located in the upper part of Taormina, this favourable position is close enough to Taormina's historical centre (approx. 800m, a 15 minute walk downhill - uphill on the way home) to enjoy all that is on offer in this bustling resort, but far enough away to enable you to escape the noise and the crowds and enjoy some rest and relaxation in a perfect setting.

The Sicily region
Sicily is an island full of extremes and contrasts, a land rich in history and culture, lively, enticing cities of art, ancient fishermen’s villages where time seems to have come to a standstill and amazing natural wonders, beautiful beaches and islands where you can relax surrounded by crystal clear waters. The island is a crossroads for populations who were completely different from one another, who have all left permanent traces of themselves in the island’s history and culture.
Sicily is everything Italian but only more so and as the largest island in the Mediterranean has no end of things to see and do…....all this plus a fabulous all year round climate, it really is hard to beat.
Taormina is a special resort and is affectionately known as 'The Pearl of the Mediterranean'. The ancient walled city offers fabulous architecture, cobbled walk ways, a pedestrian only main street lined with trendy pavement cafes and bars and spectacular views from wherever you look – it really is breathtakingly beautiful. All of this sitting alongside the world’s third largest Greek Theatre, which has to be seen to be believed - particularly in Summer when opera's, concerts and spectacular shows take place there.
Taormina enjoys a mountain top position looking over the area below known as ‘Taormina Mare’ offering a combination of beautiful wide clean beaches and small cosy bays where you can relax and soak up the Sicilian sunshine throughout the day.
It is a cosmopolitan resort with the benefit of fantastic beaches, delicious cuisine and friendly locals......once visited, Taormina is never forgotten.
What's going on when??
All the artistic and cutural events take place during the summer months. This is when Taormina is the busiest and for this reason it's best to book well in advance.
February - Carnival week - a colourful, fun street carnival.
May - The Traditional Costume and Sicilian Cart Fair
June - Taormina Film Festival - World famous guests, directors and script writers attend this festival which culminates in the Nastri d'Argento award ceremony.
July to August - Taormina Arte - A festival dedicated to music, dance and theater where famous artists from all over the world perform in the wonderful Ancient Theater. During this week you can ‘celebrity spot’ in Taormina. Visitors in past years have included Hugh Grant, Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas, Melanie Griffiths, Naomi Cambell, Tom Cruise, Gerry Halliwell – the list is endless!
September - The statue of Madonna della Rocca is house in a sactuary between Castlemola and Taormina and during the second week in september a religious procession carries the statue through the town where a large banquet is organised.

Let me start by saying a BIG THANK YOU to Virginia and her family they are truly wonderful. Now to the accommodation we stayed 9 nights and let’s just say it is beautiful and exceeded all expectations, the view is out of this world. I work in the travel industry and am lucky to have stayed at some of the best hotels in the world from burj dubai to The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore but the view from apartment 2 (in which we stayed in) was by far the most impressive I have ever seen, you can see Mt Etna in its full glory and the coast up to and beyond giardini naxos ,it is worth staying here just for that view, the view from all apartments are great the front apartment’s enjoy a wonderful view of Madonna Rocca all the way to mainland Italy. The apartment was spotless and modern it had everything you needed for a vacation and more, the location was a 10 min walk down to Taormina town via the steps adjacent to the apartment or the steps from Madonna Rocca which is a 5 min walk from the apartment where you will find steps leading down to the town with a view all the way to isola bella and beyond. Take a walk upto castelmole where you will find a lovely piazza and lots of great places to eat and of course magnificent views. Al Saraceno Via Madonna della Rocca which is a two minute walk is a wonderful restaurant serving some of the best food we tasted in Sicily. I could go on forever trying to describe how great this apartment and Sicily is all I can say is stay here you will not regret it and we will defiantly without a doubt be back very soon We loved it …………….. Thank you to all the staff at villa Virginia

"Incredible apartment, ideally located"
Just got back form a week in Villa Virginia. Two of us stayed in the one bed apartment but with one in the bedroom and one of the sofa bed there was more than enough room. Everything is brand new, well made, and spotless and you won't find a thing wrong with it. The view from the balcony is incredible, of the Italian mainland on one side and you can just about see Etna on the other. It's a bit of a walk back up the steps from Taormina centre, but unless you're really lazy you won't mind. And going down takes about 5 minutes. I can't imagine there are many if any nicer apartments n the area than this one. It's a no brainer. We'll definitely be going back. Oh and Virginia the manager is lovely and incredibly hospitable.

"It ticked every box, we couldn't have wished for more!"
There are very few surprises in life, so I took the gamble and booked our honeymoon and kept it a secret for my future wife. We are still married, phew! Seriously, wow, what more can I say, we were both delighted with the apartment, we couldn't have wished for more. It was spacious and luxurious, the views were amazing, the location was perfect. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We will be back!

"Amazing views and apartment"
We stayed in room 4 for nearly 3 weeks for our honeymoon. The apartment was amazing with astonishing views of Mount Etna and the coastline. The apartment is modern and spacious and was immaculately clean. It has all the basic requirements for self catering. The owner's mum met us and gave us a wonderful welcome to the start of our holiday and was helpful throughout our stay. We had a fabulous holiday and would recommend the apartment as a good base for exploring the east side of Sicily.

"It was in a lovely location, was spotlessly clean, with good information provided in the apartment."
The block was ideal for holiday lets, everything needed was provided, including a hair drier. The living area was a little sparse but fine for a holiday. There was an excellent restaurant 5 minutes walk away but otherwise it was necessary to go down to Taormina or up the hill to Castelmoro to eat. In practice it was easier to drive to and park in Castelmoro which had good restaurants rather than go to Taormina - which had what seemed like hundreds of bars and restaurants. A car is necessary - to get to the apartment and to get around.

"Spectacular views and memories"
This villa is in a spectacular location up the winding roads from Taormina up toward Castelmola. Our balcony had an indescribable view overlooking the Sicily countryside and the sea. Mt. Etna dominates the view complete with smoking craters and snow capped peaks. Simply amazing. The Villa was very comfortable, complete with the essentials to cook your own breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as nice dining area complete with a sliding glass doors that open for relaxing in the Sicilian air.

Our appartment No.4 of Villa Virginia was situated above Taormina on the road to Castelmola with uninterupted views of Etna and the Ionian Sea. The Villa provides secure garaging for a hire car. Because of the parking problem in Taormina we preferred to take the pretty route by foot down the 400 plus steps to the centre - the exercise provides an ideal excuse to indulge in the excellent wine, pizzas and ice cream in the numerous cafes. The return uphill is best accomplished on the local bus which stops within 50m of the Villa. A hire car is best suited for visiting Etna and the places of interest in the local area.

"Fantastic Apartment, run by even nicer people."
After spending hours searching for a place we found Villa Virginia, and just a minute on the phone to Teresa and I knew that we had found the right place. This ultra clean and modern villa is set high up on the hills of sunny Taormina, gifted with stunning panoramic views of the town and sea. Sicily gave us both a fantastic holiday to remember, we got lucky with the weather and truly enjoyed our stay here. If you do decide to rent this place then please keep it clean as I would like to use it again one day! Thanks Teresa.
