Taormina chateau / country house description

The spacious sitting/dining room with its ornate fireplace and traditional furnishings lead onto the oval terrace. Pine trees surround the terrace on which there is a working stone font - the ideal setting for an evening aperitif watching the flaming Etna volcano as well as dinner on those balmy evenings. The bedrooms are all simply but comfortably and colourfully decorated with shutters leading out onto the front garden. Alternatively, when the Sicilian sun becomes too overbearing one can cool off in the large pool behind the house. Palm, avocado and olive trees around the pool provide some shade over parts of the terrace where again some stunning views to the sea and the Mount Etna can be appreciated. We believe lovers of Sicily and also those new to the many fascinations of this island will love the opportunity to stay in this traditional classic home within such easy access of so many popular destination.

                          ABOUT TAORMINA

                          Taormina is one of the most sought after areas in Sicily, and it is easy to understand why. The combination of being on the beach, and at the same time within walking distance (with the help of the cable car) of the centre of Taormina suits many of our guest very well. This area of Sicily has much to offer besides Taormina and the beaches. Apart from the huge attraction of Mount Etna, try visiting some of the lesser known towns and villages on its flanks. You will be in for some pleasant surprises.

                          ABOUT THE SAMMARTINO ESTATE

                          Nestled amongst bougainvillea citrus and olive plantations with outstanding views to Mount Etna, this Classic Sicilian home is an ideal base from which to explore the delights of Eastern Sicily. Only twenty minutes from Taormina with its famous amphitheatre and colourful streets and yet hidden away from the outside world, the San Martino Estate provides the opportunity for a very real Sicilian experience. Many of our guests have shown a growing interest in this island which is such a “melting pot” of cultures so we are delighted to offer this location. Having followed the long drive up the hill one finally reaches this princely family home surrounded by lush vegetation. Stepping inside one immediately notices the typically Sicilian nineteenth century furniture and objects d’art. Palm, avocado and olive trees around the pool provide some shade over parts of the terrace where again some stunning views to the sea and the Mount Etna can be appreciated. We believe lovers of Sicily and also those new to the many fascinations of this island will love the opportunity to stay in this traditional classic home within such easy access of so many popular destination.
