Don Mimi Guarnaschelli

Europe / Italy / Taormina

“Were a man to spend only one day in Sicily and ask, “What must one see?” I would answer him without hesitation, “Taormina.” It is only a landscape, but a landscape where you find everything on earth that seems made to seduce the eyes, the mind and the imagination.”

Overview

With these words, Guy de Maupassant described this land, positioned between the sky and the sea, offering visitors unforgettable vistas of Mount Etna and endless views of the Mediterranean.

In this blessed place, a noble and historic residence, Villa Guarnaschelli, recently has re-opened its doors to welcome a discerning clientele. The luxury villa, located in the center of Taormina, had a very glorious past hosting the King of England Edward VIII, Hollywood stars, aristocrats, famous artists, intellectuals and politicians, and now, after a careful restoration, the villa is ready to be your less-than-predictable place where to enjoy an extraordinary vacation.

The sophisticated social spaces are perfectly appointed for entertaining and designed to be welcoming and harmonious. A cozy library with a working fireplace, a formal drawing room with an adjacent smaller sitting room, a comfortable living room, and a separated dining room: all are filled with exquisite antiques and custom furniture, rich fabrics, along with heirlooms, artifacts and wall art collected by the villas’ aristocrat owners. Every room opens onto the terrace through French doors. A fully equipped kitchen and a guest bathroom complete this floor. The spaces are meant for relaxing, so that guests can embrace the Sicilian traditional yet sophisticated way of life.

The Liberty-style villa is surrounded by a manicured private park and a panoramic terrace overlooking Isola Bella, also known as the Pearl of the Ionian Sea. A stunning infinity heated pool with whirlpool corner was added during the villa’s latest restoration. Besides the pool and the glorious sundeck, several areas in the garden are designed to be enjoyed while either lounging, dining or just indulging in the dolce far niente.

Perfect for the discerning traveler, this property boasts modern comforts and yet it transports its guests into a world of old charm and glamour.

The tucked-away position in the historical center of Taormina and the majestic view from its terraces, add infinite value to this beautiful villa, full of character, history and panache, designed to deliver exceptional experiences.
