A truly unique, enchanting villa in a stunning cliff-top position overlooking one of the most beautiful bays in the world: Isola Bella below Taormina. Located in exclusive complex with spectacular swimming pool and private rocky shore.
Villa Suk is a unique building of its kind, with a breathtaking charm which stands out from its idyllic setting on a high rocky cliff overlooking Isola Bella bay, one of the world's most exclusive locations. The property is part of a fabulous complex of quality villas which have been designed by the famous Italian architect Giulio Minoletti, and offering the ultimate in privacy, peace and tranquillity. The villa complex boasts a spectacular swimming pool and an elevator which takes you down to the fabulous rocky shore and into the emerald blue-green waters of the surrounding grottoes, a magical spot to relax and soak up the Sicilian sun. The historical centre of medieval Taormina, Sicily’s most famous resort, is only a couple of miles away.
If you can tear yourself away from the peace of Villa Suk, a couple of miles away is the stunning town of Taormina, the "Pearl of the Mediterranean”, easily reachable by bus, taxis or with the help of a panoramic cable car located 15 minutes walk away (this takes you in the centre of Taormina in a couple of minutes). Idyllically perched on a rocky promontory high above the sea with Mount Etna brooding in the background, its location is a breathtaking collage of mountains, azure seas and dramatic cliffs topped by a stunning Greco-Roman amphitheatre dating back to the 3rd century BC (see right picture). Taormina is like a treasure chest of history: walking along its main traffic-free street, Corso Umberto, and the maze of narrow streets and small beautiful squares, you will find theatres and gymnasiums from the Greek age, Odeon and baths from the Roman age, stunning buildings in which the Arab and the Norman cultures melt together in a memorable sense of beauty. Small shops selling local crafts, designer boutiques, romantic candlelit bars and sparkling restaurants, tucked away among the medieval streets of the old town, add to Taormina's charm. And if you're lucky enough to coincide your visit with the Taormina Art Festival, you'll be treated to a fantastic programme of international music, theatre, art, opera, dance and film.
The nearest and most convenient airport to Taormina is Catania Airport (about 60 km, 45 mins drive). Other options include flying to Palermo (3 hours drive), Trapani (4 hours drive) or Reggio Calabria (30mins crossing time to Messina plus 30mins drive).

The villa complex has a private rocky beach
The villa is on three levels: enter the front door to the main living area, with stylish sitting and dining areas, and access to the garden. Off this living area is a small but fully equipped kitchen (fridge, freezer, cooker, oven, kettle, toaster, dishwasher, etc). Some spiral stairs take you to the first floor which is home to two double bedrooms with queen size bed and a bathroom with shower. The bedrooms share a balcony with spectacular views of the ocean. A couple of steps lead up to a separate unit which is home to a third double bedroom with queen size bed and en-suite bathroom (with shower), and to a small roof terrace with sun all day long. The atmosphere and decoration throughout are warm and simple with a retro style and original use of colour. Thanks to its peculiar setting (the complex is entirely built against the rock), the villa is extremely cool and you will hardly use the air conditioning, even in the peak of summer (July and August).
The private garden is ideal for those seeking peace and privacy while enjoying the most breathtaking view imaginable. Filled with beautiful Mediterranean plants and flowers, it offers great al fresco dining options, sunlit breakfast spots and peaceful reading corners. The views are simply spectacular: the vastness of the blue sea and Isola Bella bay, an unforgettable scenery. The complex saltwater pool is dramatically located on the cliff edge with breathtaking views of Isola Bella bay. From inside the pool (open from mid-May to mid-October), one really has the sensation of hanging directly above the sea. An elevator takes you through 50m of solid rock to the spectacular rocky shore where you can sunbath or swim in the emerald blue-green waters, while the crystal clear waters of the surrounding grottoes provide ideal conditions for snorkelling and scuba diving. Although the private beach and pool can get quite busy in July and August, they remain extremely quiet during other periods.
