                  Carranco Estate is ideally situated in the surroundings of Taormina, discretely isolated and close to everything (Catania Airport, Taormina and its Beaches, the Picciolo 18 Holes Golf club, Mount Etna and many other world known locations of Sicily).

                  It has unique panoramic views (especially on Mount Etna, the village of Castiglione di Sicilia, the Mounts Nebrodi and, at night, the sky, featuring a complete map of the stars).

                  Its optimal location permits our guests to either move to make easy day visits of the beauties of Sicily, go for the day to the seaside in Taormina or to just stay at the Estate and relax.

                  Whatever your choice, we will be at your disposal to make you feel comfortable and at home.

                  A detailed routing ('Directions') will be sent to you at reservation, though, feel you are always welcome to call us, at any moment ,if you should need any kind of help to reach us.

                  Other Activities: Ping-Pong

                  Golf: Il Picciolo Golf Club

                  18 Holes Golf club just 10min away from the Estate.

                  Ski: Ski experience on the volcano

                  In the winter, when temperature and snow permits it is possible to have the best ski experience, descending on the slopes and craters of Mount Etna while watching the sea.

                  Year Purchased: 1979

                  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
