Location and Surrounding Area. Giardini Naxos is a small tourist resort, once a fishing village, strung along a wide bay on the coast just beneath Taormina. It is surrounded by green hills and picturesque cliffs. Visitors staying here can enjoy the relaxing beach life, rent a boat or take an organized boat trip, enjoy snorkeling or scuba diving, pay a visit to the archaeological park and museum, or simply enjoy the high class cuisine in one of the many seaside restaurants. Giardini Naxos is a just 5 km from Taormina, with regular buses.
Internationally renowned for its beauty, the small hilltop town of Taormina, overlooking the clear turquoise waters of the Ionian sea and the volcanic Mount Etna, was once described by Ernest Hemingway as being so pretty “it hurts to look” at it. Other celebrated writers like Goethe, DH Lawrence and Truman Capote were drawn to Taormina and its ancient ruins – its theatre dates back to the third century BC and hosts several cultural and musical events during the Summer. The main street of Corso Umberto, while resplendent with ancient charm, is filled with chic shops, bars, cafes and restaurants. Visitors can take the cable car to the tiny, romantic beach island of Isola Bella or walk uphill behind the gorgeous Church of San Giuseppe for spectacular panoramic views. Visitors who want a break from the sun might like to take a walk around the secluded and peaceful gardens of the Villa Comunale.
Other nearby towns include the enchanting medieval villages of Castelmola and Savoca as well as the Fiumefreddo Nature Reserve.
Villa dei Giardini di Naxos is 5 km from Taormina, 7 km from Fiumefreddo, 15 km from Castelmola, 30 km from Savoca. It is 55 km from Catania airport.
The Property. Built in the second half of the last century, Villa dei Giardini di Naxos (350 sq. m.) was the summer residence of an Italian noblewoman. The villa has been refurbished and tastefully furnished to provide a high level of modern luxury and comfort while respecting its original charm. Spread over three floors, the villa is easily big enough to accommodate up to 13 guests. At the pool level there is an elegant living room, dining room and well equipped kitchen, all with spectacular sea views, as well as a guest bedroom. An impressively glamorous curving staircase leads to the upper floor where there are three spacious double bedrooms (two en-suite and one with a private bathroom) and a single bedroom (also en-suite). At sea level there is a smaller living room, two more double bedrooms with en-suite bathroom, one of which connects with a further double room, and so is ideal for parents and children. There is also a wellness area with gym, massage room and bathroom/shower.
The villa has its own swimming pool set in a beautifully maintained garden with various dining and seating areas, as well as sun loungers, plus direct access to the sea. The combination of comfort, high class elegance, stunning views and proximity to the sea make Villa dei Giardini di Naxos an idyllic spot for an unforgettable holiday.
