PRIVATE STRUCTURE On the tip of the promontory of Castelmola, overlooking Mount Etna and eastern Sicily with its old cities, its natural beauty and the crystal-clear blue sea of the splendid Sicilian coast, very close to Taormina and surrounded by a green, luxuriant park of 20 hectares with more than 6000 species of plants, stands the Antica Dimora Grimaudo (old Grimaudo residence), a villa which still breathes the atmosphere of past splendours and which, today, is provided with all mod cons. The villa consists of a large portico where you can enjoy meals in the open air, sipping the best wines of the area, and with lots of space to relax, listening to the sounds of nature or admiring unforgettable sunsets. The swimming pool, just a few paces from the house, is perfect for those wanting to swim or to soak up the sun while reading a good book by the pool. The strategic position of the house allows you to get to beautiful Taormina or to the famous beaches of the Giardini Naxos in about 10/15 minutes. In the large park of the property there is an annex where the caretaker lives and a second house used by the owners only a few times a year. They can be a useful reference point for guests to whom, however, complete privacy is guaranteed.
