About: I inherited this property when I was 11 (my father passed away). I spent there all my holidays since I was a kid... Now I'm a world wide traveller, though, I always return to this beautiful place to relax and take advantage of its incredible energy.
Why Taormina: This property is a special place. It is unique. Why? Because of its history... Because its previous owners (all family ancestors) always loved it and considered it special...
It has a unique Karma... a special energy...
Though, I travel around the world, rarely have I seen such a special and unique location.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House: - Breathtaking panorama
- Beautiful night skies full of stars
- View on Mount Etna and its breathtaking eruptions
- Calmness and lack of stress
- Special karma and positive energy
