villa layout
Il Frantoio is an attractive old farmhouse in the hills above Taormina, which has been completely renovated both inside and out, and in the living/dining room they have left intact the old olive-crushing machines, incorporating them into the furnishings of the house; and together with the big fireplace, which is still in use, they have created an exceptionally warm and pleasant atmosphere. Air-conditioning has been installed, along with heating supplied by heat-pumps, satellite TV and microwave oven. The furnishings are country-style, augmented by some Sicilian antique pieces, and the house has all the conveniences you might need to make your holiday unforgettable. Outside they have built a private swimming-pool (5.5 x 11m), placed on panoramic terracing in the large enclosed garden, with centuries-old olive trees and typical Mediterranean plants. The outside area includes an area furnished for dining outside with barbecue and a large panoramic terrace with a view of the sea, and the house lies in a particularly quiet and private spot. Il Frantoio can be reached via Giardini Naxos, which is 1.5 km away, or from Taormina - 4 km away, whereas Catania, which can easily be reached via the convenient motorway with its exit at Giardini Naxos, is 43 km away. This would be a very comfortable house for couples or for a family with children who want to enjoy a very quiet holiday close to Taormina and the beautiful beaches at Isola Bella or at Mazzarò.

"I want to say thank you for all you did prior to our stay at Villa Il Frantoio, which exceeded our expectations: the beautiful pool, the sheep farm down the hill, the view of the Ionian Sea, the kind and helpful shopkeepers in Naxos, the beautiful places to swim at Mazzaro and Isola Bella, the olive and agave and oleander and apricot plantings in the villa’s gardens, the bumpy narrow road up the hill to the villa, the ancient places I have taught about for many years and never seen until now: it was all truly wonderful.
Everyone we met, especially Francesco, was extremely helpful and friendly.

Thank you again for all of your kindness. Sicily, Taormina, and most especially the small shops in the unassuming town of Naxos where one must do his shopping are indeed special places. To sit with a coffee on the upper verandah of the villa staring out at the Ionian Sea, listening to the sheep being brought up the road to pasture . . . I wish I were there still. I am

Gratefully yours,
(May 2008)
"Il Frantoio in Giardini Naxos was magical! Such an amazing time. Owner was a saint as well, god bless him.

Thank you,
