La discesa al mare ("the descent to the sea") offers guests the ideal recipe for a perfect holiday: away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, absolute independence, nature, sun and direct access to the sea.

Situated within an exclusive Villa complex, it cover the whole ground floor of a two story building.
The living room with a sofa and a TV, a dining area with a large table for 8 people and a fully equipped kitchen are in the same environment and are accessed through a patio door that separates them from the garden of the apartment.
Adjacent, next to each other, the two bedrooms: one with double bed, one with two single beds.
There is also a bathroom with a shower.
All rooms are equipped with heating and air conditioning.
Wi-fi is available in every room.
Last but not least, the ability to access, through an underpass inside the complex, first a green area, ideal for children to play or for a short break, and through a gate access to the sea.
3 PM- 5 PM
Lovely contemporary & comfortable apartment with its own little private garden, set back from the road in a gated development. Very quiet and safe, especially for small children. Massimo couldn't have been more helpful, or on hand when needed. Bakery and cafe just round the corner for delicious freshly squeezed orange juice and pastries for breakfast. This part of Sicily has lots of stunning places to visit. In particular Taormina, which we visited twice. Beautiful beaches, and a cable car up to the town centre, with its winding pedestrian streets and abundance of delicious restaurants & historic architecture. The Amphitheatre is most definitely worth the walk.
Super expérience +++ C'était un plaisir de passer quelques nuits ici ! L'appartement est top ! Très moderne dans son agencement, son design, sa décoration, avec un jardin privatif, une grande véranda,…
Séjour tout à fait exceptionnel. Notre logement préféré en Sicile (nous avons fait 5 Airbnb durant nos vacances). Merci pour ton accueil, et pour la flexibilité des heures d'arrivée et de départ.
