Property description

The Lemon Tree villa is divided into 8 self catering apartments, located on the mountain of Mastrissa, just a short drive 4km to the centre of historic Taormina and a 3km drive to the beaches of Giardini Naxos and local shops. Set within private gated grounds and surrounded by olive groves and vineyards the Lemon Tree is the perfect base for discovering the many wonders of Sicily.

With ample parking and lots of space The Lemon Tree is also home to its English/Italian speaking owners who are on hand to provide you with useful, local information, assist with excursion enquiries and are always available to ensure your holiday runs smoothly.

The Lemon Tree villa can be rented for groups up to 28 guests and individually from 2 guests. The 360 degree views are breathtaking, you can enjoy amazing scenery from every angle. The private swimming pool is set within the grounds and is always available for our guests. We also have a barbeque area, laundry area and outdoor games including table tennis, table football and darts. All of our apartments offer air conditioning, TV/Dvd, private gated parking and we offer free wi-fi internet access.

On arrival in Taormina we will meet you at a convenient location and bring you directly to the Lemon Tree, alternatively we can arrange a transfer service from Catania airport (45km). We are also able to arrange local car hire with pick up and drop off at the Lemon Tree.

The Lemon Tree is strategically placed away from the hustle and bustle of Taormina, thus allowing you to visit various locations of importance in Sicily and return to a peaceful and tranquil base in a relaxed environment.

Car: Recommended

The Lemon Tree villa is located in a very tranquil area of Taormina. It is 3 miles from the centre of town and set in beautiful countryside surrounded by olive groves and vineyards. A 10 minute drive will take you to the coastline where you can enjoy one of the many beaches on offer or access the motorway and visit one of the many wonders of Sicily. Castelmola is a 5 mile journey, the recently opened arabic castle of Calatabiano is a 5 mile journey and the Alcantara Gorges are a 15 mile trip. The majestic Volcano 'Mount Etna' is not to be missed and is reachable in an hour along with the water park 'Etnaland'. If you fancy some real history and culture take the 2.5 hour journey to Agrigento and visit the UNESCO protected Valley of the Temples and Piazza Armerina where you can see without doubt some of the most preserved mosaics in the world. If you are a Godfather movie enthusiast you may even decide to drive 15 miles to Forza D' Agro and Savoca and explore these stunning medieval towns that were selected by Francis Ford Coppola to feature several scenes in the Trilogy. Sicily is making huge steps in producing award winning wines, why not visit local vineyards and sample a few of these delights. Alternatively you can just chill around the pool take in our breath-taking scenery and soak in the sun and tranquillity!


Owner info

About the owner: My name is Karen Cacopardo, I have been in the hospitality industry for 20 years in the UK, In 2007 I married my husband Diego and we came to live in Sicily. We renovated and created The Lemon Tree and also provide a wedding planning service for couples who wish to marry in Taormina.

Why the Owner Chose Castelmola ME, Italy:
Prior to moving to Sicily my husband and I worked in different industries and long hours thus not having much quality time together, we now run our own business in 300 days of sunshine per year and both enjoy a healthier lifestyle and meeting people from all walks of life.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We pride ourselves on offering a 5 star service, my husband was born in Taormina and is fluently bilingual, he has a wealth of local knowledge, information and contacts. We can oganise excursions, book restaurants, organise Sicilian cookery classes and symbolic wedding church services. We also offer a shuttle service to and from The Lemon Tree. We are generally around to make sure our guests have a fantastic holiday.
