These vistas are often hailed as the “ultimate panorama” and are an absolute must-see when exploring Sicily.

This renowned tourist destination boasts the island’s second-largest ancient theater, originally constructed in the third century B.C., which still offers exceptional acoustics for contemporary performances, including major international cultural, musical, and theatrical events during the summer season.

In addition to its cultural treasures, Taormina offers an array of shopping opportunities, ranging from the finest Italian designers to local art and crafts. And, of course, you can savor the delightful local cuisine. To fully experience Taormina without the need for a car, consider renting Villa Diffusa, an exquisite 8-bedroom villa conveniently located within walking distance (with stairs) of all the town has to offer.


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 organic shaped whirlpool (non heated) for up to 6 people is set in front of the covered patio of the main villa. Private parking 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.
