The property is situated in a complex of quality holiday villas with a spectacular swimming pool and an elevator which takes you down to the fabulous rocky shore and into the emerald blue-green waters of the surrounding grottos, a magical spot to relax and soak up the Sicilian sun.

Further details outdoors

Villa Suk is a unique building of its kind, with a breathtaking charm which stands out from its idyllic setting on a high rocky cliff in front of Isola Bella, one of the world's most exclusive locations. The villa has its own private garden, filled with plants, flowers, olive groves and orange trees, offering great al fresco dining options, sunlit breakfast spots and peaceful reading corners. The views are simply spectacular: the vastness of the cobalt blue sea and the Isola Bella bay with Calabria's coastline stretching into the distance, an unforgettable scenery.

An underground corridor leads to the complex saltwater pool, dramatically located on the cliff edge with breathtaking views of Isola Bella bay. From inside the pool, one really has the sensation of hanging directly above the azure sea (pool open from mid-May to mid-October). An elevator takes you through 50m of solid rock to the spectacular rocky shore where you can sunbath or swim in the emerald blue-green waters, while the crystal clear waters of the surrounding grottoes provide fabulous conditions for snorkelling and scuba diving (the entire Isola Bella bay is a WWF protected Nature Reserve). Although the private shore and pool can get quite busy with complex residents in July and August, they remain extremely quiet during other periods.

The Sicily region

To have seen Italy without having seen Sicily is not to have seen Italy at all, for Sicily is the clue to everything...The things that enchant you cannot be counted (J.W. Goethe, “Italian Journey”, 1873). From blackened lava fields to soft sandy coves, Sicily boasts wonderfully contrasting landscapes. This idyllic isle is a patchwork of rolling plains, sweet-smelling citrus groves, precipitous cliffs and flower-filled meadows. Like the scenery, Sicily's heritage is also incredibly varied. Its strategic mid-Mediterranean location made it the coveted prize of many an empire and centuries of invasion by the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, French and Spanish left behind indelible marks on the island's cultural landscape.

Taormina is ideally located to reach, with daily excursions, most parts of Sicily including Mount Etna, Europe's largest active volcano and home to many outdoor activities, the splendid Aeolian Islands (UNESCO World Heritage site), the late baroque towns of the Val di Noto (Caltagirone, Militello Val di Catania, Catania, Modica, Noto, Palazzolo Acreide, Ragusa and Scicli, all UNESCO WH sites), Siracusa and its historical centre Ortigia (UNESCO WH site), Villa Romana del Casale with its mosaics (UNESCO WH site), Agrigento with its Greek temples (UNESCO WH site)… thousands of years of history in one island!

Holidays in Sicily are also about enjoying the island's passion for food and drink. Whatever you're doing, it'll feel even better paired with a glass of almond wine, homemade pizza or steaming espresso. Add a superb all-year round climate and the locals' irresistible zest and hospitality and you're sure of a memorable time here.

Taormina

If you can tear yourself away from the peace of Villa Suk, a couple of miles away is the historic town of Taormina, the "Pearl of the Mediterranean”, easily reachable by bus, taxis or with the help of a cable car located 15 minutes walk away.

Idyllically perched on a rocky promontory high above the sea with Mount Etna brooding in the background, its location is a breathtaking collage of mountains, azure seas and dramatic cliffs topped by a stunning Greco-Roman amphitheatre dating back to the 3rd century BC. Taormina is like a treasure chest of history: walking along its main traffic-free street, Corso Umberto, and the maze of narrow streets and small beautiful squares, you will find theatres and gymnasiums from the Greek age, Odeon and baths from the Roman age, stunning buildings in which the Arab and the Norman cultures melt together in a memorable sense of beauty. Small shops selling local crafts, designer boutiques, romantic candlelit bars and sparkling restaurants, tucked away among the medieval streets of the old town, add to Taormina's charm. And if you're lucky enough to coincide your visit with the Taormina Art Festival in the summer, you'll be treated to a fantastic programme of international music, theatre, art, opera, dance and film.

Some of Taormina's finest beaches are within a short walking distance (10 mins) from Villa Suk: choose from Mazzaro, Capo Taormina, Spisone and gorgeous Isola Bella bay for idyllic hours catching the rays, trying out water sports or enjoying the many local boat excursions. Within easy reach of Taormina is Mount Etna volcano (45 mins drive) for a cool day immersed in nature (including the stunning golf course “Il Picciolo” with spectacular and scenic views for all 18 holes, set among among oaks, hazels and vineyards), the medieval village of Castelmola (10 mins) with its narrow streets and breathtaking views, Alcantara valley with its magnificent gorges (15 mins), and the town of Catania (40 mins) with its historical buildings and monuments, elegant shops and vibrating nightlife.

“Beautiful view and posh apartment!”

Reviewed 21 Jun 2013

We loved this place. Francesco was helpful and available. The caretakers were available if we needed them and were friendly. They helped us out in a bind when we needed a quiet place to stay and responded quickly enough to get us into the apartment. The view was amazing, and I enjoyed simply sitting on the patio more than anything else. My kids loved it, too!

“If you come to Taormina, stay at Villa Suk”

Reviewed 9 Jun 2013

This is a truly PERFECT location. The condominium complex Il Suk is in Taormina Mare (on the edge of the cliff overlooking goregous Isola Bella Bay), away from the Taormina crowds and yet, just a few minutes away from the city center. The garden of the villa is beautiful, it is facing the East, and if you are an early riser, the sunrise over waters is simply breathtaking. The complex' beach is rocky, so if you do not mind walking about 15 min., you will be at the beautiful Isola Bella beach, with crystal clean shallow waters and pebbles. If you don't speak Italian, your best source for information is nearby Hotel Capotaormina, with its friendly staff, ready to help. Francesco, the villa owner, is the most wonderful and will answer all your questions as well. Make sure you visit Etna during your stay. Use Sicily Off Road for your guide. Take a bus up to Castelmolla village and don't forget the Godfather film locations, Savoca and Forza d'Agro.

“Nice villa with a great view”

Reviewed 9 May 2013

We had a wonderful time in Villa Suk, the view from the garden is wonderful, the best you can think of, Isola Bella looks so close. We used to have breakfast and dinner in the veranda, it is a very hard choice to leave that view and go out to a restaurant... The house was very clean, with nice 70’s furnitures and very confortable beds. The private beach and pool of the complex are unique, the scenary is breathtaking, and swimming in the Isola bay was unforgettable.

“Amazing - highly reccommended”

Reviewed 2 Mar 2013

Villa Suk is the ideal place for having a holiday in Taormine area with friends, family or your other half. The views from the balcony are stunning and the villa is perfectly located for excursions around the area, including Giardini Naxos, Taormina, and the volcano Etna. The villa enjoys a high position on a cliff which dominates the sea, just overlooking Isola Bella. The area is quiet and the villa is surrounded by other villas of similar standard sharing a pool with spectacular views. There is also an elevator for easy access to the shore and the beautiful turquoise water of the Sicilian sea. Highly recommended!.

“Bellisimo”

Reviewed 26 Oct 2012

Five of us stayed at Villa Suk for a week. The views from the terrace, infinity pool, and beach are stunning. The living & dining areas are open and spacious. We ate most dinners in and found the kitchen to be just what we needed. Villa Suk is located perfectly for day trips to Giardini Naxos, Taormina, Isola Bella, Siricusi, and Etna. We shopped for our dinner supplies in G.Naxos, finding delightful produce, meat & fish markets. Francesco, the owner, was very helpful in giving us suggestions for site seeing. We are definitely recommending Villa Suk to friends for their travels next year!

“The best holiday one can imagine.”

Reviewed 29 Jul 2012

We spent the most fantastic week staying at beautiful Villa Suk. From the moment we arrived and walked on to the terrace to take in the fantastic view, we fell in love with this charming villa. The villa is so well appointed and comfortable and one really has the sense of being a guest in someone's well cared for home, rather than a tourist renting accommodation. The ambience of the complex of villas, which seemed to have more Italians than overseas tourists staying there, set the scene for a week of delights. Morning swims in the complex's private swimming spot, which was reached by a fantastic lift that descends down 50 metres through the cliff to arrive at the cave leading to the crystal blue water below, followed by lunch in one of the many fabulous restaurants within walking distance. An afternoon trip to Taormina or the incredible hill top town of Castelmola, with its ancient winding streets. So much to do but such a pleasure to just be quiet with a book and a glass of wine, on the terrace. The difficult decisions of each day! The owner, Francesco was just so lovely and helpful with local information and suggestions for trips and restaurants.Nothing was too much trouble for him. A bonus was to be able to use the internet stick which comes with the villa, with plenty of capacity for emailing. A truly idyllic holiday, that we will never forget.

“An idylic location - very highly recommended!”

Reviewed 19 Jul 2012

This appartment is located over Isolabella Bay with stunning views and an ideal position for seeing the wonderful sights of Sicily - both nearby (such as Taormina and Castelmola) and along the eastern coast via car (e.g. Syracusa, Alcantara Gorge, and Mount Etna). There is a dedicated swimming pool and easy access to a private shorefront. Supermarkets and restaurants are within easy reach. My husband and I had a wonderful relaxing holiday with our 3 ground up children and my mother. An idylic location - very highly recommended!

“Beautiful Location for the Perfect Vacation!”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2012

A group of four girlfriends just returned from an incredible vacation at Villa Suk! Everything was exactly as described on the website and the views are even more spectacular—if that's possible. The most important aspects in selecting a vacation location to our group are the outside views, privacy, comfortable outside seating for entertaining, and proximity of fun day trips. Villa Suk was perfect! We enjoyed traveling to many lovely towns during the day and returned to the villa in the evenings to cook and enjoy the beautiful outside patio and dining area. The bedrooms are very comfortable and the kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals. The beach area is incredible and we spent a couple of hours each morning swimming in the blue water. The pool is incredible—even more beautiful than the pictures. Francesco was very helpful to us from the very beginning. We relied on his information for getting around and finding local supermarkets, restaurants, etc. You can trust his recommendations! We were able to walk to most things we needed but also decided to rent a car for a couple of days to tour the island on our own. Though a car is not necessarily required - we thoroughly enjoyed exploring on our own. This was our 4th trip to Italy and we all agree that it ranks at the top of our list as one of the most memorable and relaxing vacations. I highly recommend it.

“Fabulous Place”

Reviewed 12 Mar 2012

The most incredible views we have ever seen! Beautiful retro villa! Scrupulously clean with all the facilities . Our kids thought it was out of this world. They thought they were on a James Bond film set with a lift down to the pool and beach and the villa being set into the rocks. Fabulous Taormina was just a 3/5 minute car ride away which was great for dining out, bar hopping and general people watching as well as shopping. The kids walked to the cable car every night to hang out in Taormina which took 10 minutes. Truly great location, booked to go back already and the kids and ourselves can't wait.
