If you are looking for a place just outside the city center where to enjoy the beautiful mood of Taormina and the relaxing atmosphere of a quiet surrounding with a breath taking view of the sea, we can offer the perfect accommodation.
Villa "Petri di Sali" is a detached house located in a residential area just outside the downtown, on top of a hill facing the sea. It is 1 km (about 10-15 minutes walking) from "Porta Messina" one of the two entrance arches to the pedestrian area in the city centre.
The apartment consists of 3 bedrooms (2 with double-beds and 1 with a bunk bed), 2 bathrooms (1 main bathroom with the bath and an en-suit with the shower) and a large living room with a fully equipped kitchen. The flat is provided with dish machine, washing machine, air conditioning, heating, Wi-Fii and TV in the living room.
Bed linen, towels and cleaning of the apartment are all included. Free parking is available in the front yard as well as outside in front of the house.
Surrounded by the countryside with the typical Mediterranean vegetation, runners and walkers frequent the area.
Cafes, restaurants, bars and grocery shops are in walking distance, but please consider that to reach the house there is a steep uphill climb (about 150 meters) that may be physically and psychologically challenging (!).
However, the terrific view from the balcony definitely worth it and you will feel no guilty for the extra ice cream ;-)
It is also very quiet at night and there are few streetlights so, though considering this when coming back, you can surely enjoy sweet nights under a wonderful starry sky!!
We leave downstairs and although out for work most of the day, we do our best to ensure you are having a pleasant and comfortable staying.
We fluently speak English and are always very happy to give you tips and suggestions, to help with any needs and to genuinely take care of you.
We are a family with two adorable children, Samuele and Giuliano (5 and 2 years old) and a lovely dog, Gopal.
I work in Catania as computer scientist for a business company based in San Francisco and my wife Liliana is a child psychiatrist and researcher at the National Research Council, working in Messina.
We spent 5 years abroad living in Cambridge UK, and back in Taormina since 2012 we love spending our leisure time with the kids and our dog doing nature-related activities like camping, trekking, skiing, rock climbing, swimming in the sea, canoeing, etc.
