A new-Mediterranean architectural estate outside Taormina, a 20-minute Jeep ride from the world’s most active stratovolcano, Etna volcano, leading down to the sandy beaches of Giardini Naxos. Merging with its surrounding vibrant nature and vineyards, this estate makes for an idyllic Italian escape to remember.

A high-end Sicilian destination, located in a sustainable 16 hectares wine-estate, this villa offers the latest essence of contemporary design and local authenticity.
