What makes this villa unique

The stunning view over Isola Bella bay

Guestbook comments from the owner

Five of us stayed at Villa Suk for a week. The views from the terrace, infinity pool, and beach are stunning. The living & dining areas are open and spacious. We ate most dinners in and found the kitchen to be just what we needed. Villa Suk is located perfectly for day trips to Giardini Naxos, Taormina, Isola Bella, Siricusi, and Etna. We shopped for our dinner supplies in G.Naxos, finding delightful produce, meat & fish markets. Francesco, the owner, was very helpful in giving us suggestions for site seeing. We are definitely recommending Villa Suk to friends for their travels next year!

Notes:
The villa is a unique building of its kind, with a breathtaking charm which stands out from its idyllic setting on a high rocky cliff. The beautiful private garden offers great al fresco dining options, sunlit breakfast spots and peaceful reading corners. The views are simply spectacular: the vastness of the blue sea and Isola Bella bay, an unforgettable scenery. The complex saltwater pool is dramatically located on the cliff edge with breathtaking views of Isola Bella bay. From inside the pool (open mid-May to mid-October), one really has the sensation of hanging directly above the sea. An elevator takes you through 50m of solid rock to the spectacular rocky shore where you can sunbath or swim in the emerald blue-green waters, while the crystal clear waters of the surrounding grottoes provide ideal conditions for snorkeling and scuba diving. Although the private beach and pool can get quite busy in July and August, they remain extremely quiet during other periods.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

The house is spacious and very clean, nice 70s decor, the kitchen is quite small but very well equipped, bedrooms are large and the living room has a confortable sofa with flat tv. Spent most of the time in the wonderful garden, it' cool especially in the afternoon so that you can relax reading a booking or having a drink while enjoying a stunning sea view on Isola Bella. The facilities are just perfect and include a panoramic pool and a private beach shared by the complex, but there is plenty of space for evrybody.

Villa Suk or should I say Villa Superb

  • 5 of 5

Best holiday for years. Villa is situated in an unbelievable position with the most magnificent view over the sea. Swam everyday in the beautiful infinity pool overlooking the cliffs. Villa Suk had everything you could want and was well positioned to have a quiet time during the day at the pool or a short walk to the beach. Also a short walk to the cable car to spend the evening in the hustle and buzz of Taormina.

Breathtaking view!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 5 adults that stayed at Villa Suk for one week in October. The villa was well equipped and situated to Taormina. We enjoyed watching the sun rise in the morning and drinks in the evening from our balcony which overlooked the beautiful Isola Bella. Even after several days the view was breathtaking. Francesco's detailed guide was a welcomed resource which we carried with us throughout our trip. His suggestions for sightseeing, restaurants and getting around Taormina were great! Definitely worth renting this property.

If you can tear yourself away from the peace of the villa, a couple of miles away is the town of Taormina, the Pearl of the Mediterranean, easily reachable with the help of a cable car located 15 minutes walk away. Centre of attraction is the splendid Greco-Roman amphitheatre, spectacularly set with panoramic views across the beautiful blue bay with Mount Etna brooding in the background. Beautifully restored mediaeval buildings, breathtaking views around every corner and a giddy network of winding streets strewn with designer boutiques, romantic candlelit bars and sparkling restaurants make for a perfect holiday spot. Taormina is ideally located to easily reach most parts of Sicily including Mount Etna volcano, the Aeolian Islands, the UNESCO-protected baroque towns of Modica, Ragusa and Noto, the medieval village of Castelmola, Siracusa and its historical centre Ortigia, Villa Romana with its mosaics, Agrigento with its Greek temples… thousands of years of history in one island!

Other Activities: The spectacular 18-hole “Il Picciolo Golf Club' is 30km away from the property. Skiing on the impressive slopes of Mount Etna volcano (45mins drive).

Golf: The “Picciolo Golf Club' is 30km away from the property and offers the opportunity to play golf in a spectacular location (the slopes of Mount Etna volcano) without the crowds, slow play and high green fees that are typical of many of the more established golfing destinations elsewhere in Europe. With breathtaking and scenic views for all 18 holes, set among among lava flows, oaks, hazels and vineyards, Il Picciolo is the oldest course in Sicily and has played host to a number of international tournaments, including Ladies’ European Tour events.
