Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Welcome to Sicily! We are a Sicilian-Nordic couple: Anna is writing a PhD in law, Alessandro is a lawyer. Most of our free time we explore our island, its nature, its peoples, its ruins, its culture, its cuisine and traditions. Our homes are true Sicilian homes - they belong to our family and we use them ourselves when not rented. We will give you local tips and a little gift, so that you can taste and remember Sicily as a uniquely beautiful place. Ask us also about hiking, boat trips, cooking classes and dinners - Alessandro is an unrivaled cook!

Why the Owner Chose Taormina ME, Italy:
This home was acquired by Alessandro's mother Giovanna even before the building was began! She was the first to buy in the new complex and therefore chose the best, most panoramic apartment with high ceilings that allowed creation of the second bedroom with unique interior design based on the idea of single space. Once built, the home was furnished accordingly: there are original Sicilian paintings and ceramics, antique furniture, wrought iron, embroidered linens and warm sun-filled colors that delight the eye. Giovanna loved Taormina with its refined and artistic lifestyle; she wanted to create more privacy in the center of this world-famous gem, a place that would combine the beauty, the sun, the art and the sea with most refined interior design - and this is exactly what this home is all about.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The views: WOW!; the location - you're always downtown but don't hear the crowds; the perfumes of the garden; the swimming pool - and honestly, how many homes in Taormina have a private garage? This home is a place to enjoy all year round: sun bade on the terrace, dine with a spectacular view, dive into the swimming pool or sit in front of the fire on cool (+15C) winter evenings: it's impossible not to be on vacation in this home!
