The vistas that can be enjoyed from here have been defined the “panorama par excellence”, something you really cannot miss if you are in Sicily. The renowned tourist town features the second biggest ancient theater of the island – originally built in the third century B.C. – still offering outstanding acoustics to this day, and hosting major international cultural musical and theatrical performances during the summer. Taormina offers visitors great shopping opportunities, from the best Italian designers to the local art & crafts, and of course delicious local food. If you want to enjoy Taormina without having to use a car, rent Villa Diffusa, a gorgeous 8-bedroom villa at walking distance from everything!


Ground Floor

The spacious and luminous living room features a beautiful wood-burning fireplace sided by comfortable white sofas and a large TV. The tiles decorating the mantel are work from local artists, as well as the wall-art. An adjacent dining room with table for 6 is served by a fully equipped commercial-grade kitchen. A full bathroom completes this floor.

All the rooms open to the patio and face the magnificent view of the Mazzarò bay below. From here you can enjoy stunning views around the clock and, if you are a morning person, do not miss the sunrise from the garden…. you will never forget it for the rest of your life!

Outdoor Features

The villa’s manicured garden features a sundeck with loungers and shades sided by a large swimming pool (10 m x 4 m x 3 m depth) from where you can enjoy a stunning view of the sea and the coast below. Here also a convenient BBQ area, ideal for the grilling connoisseurs out there, serving the furnished dining area situated in the adjacent covered patio. To add more value to this beautiful area, a large Jacuzzi for up to 6 people is set on one side of the garden, that can be heated for an extra, as well as some gym equipment. Private parking for one car as well as off street parking is available

Special Characteristics

The villa is ideal for groups of adults or couples. It is located close to Taormina center which is reachable on foot by 210 roman steps – a 15-minute walk – where you can stroll among shops, restaurants and cafés, and enjoy a lively nightlife (yet your restful sleep is assured). The villa is also steps away from the cable-car to the public beaches located on the coast below. Although visible from the villa’s pool area and terraces, the public cable car will not be disturbing your stay.
