Villa Sienna is a breath-taking historic 6-bedroom property located in the centre of Taormina, Sicily. This stunning property which in the past played host to King Edward VIII of England, Hollywood stars, intellectuals, and politicians alike, can now, after careful restoration, be the site of an unforgettable Italian escape. This stunning villa is one of the most incredible properties we have on offer in Sicily , with an unparalleled location, majestic views, and historic charm.

The property makes a dramatic impact from the moment you drive onto the grounds. The Liberty-style villa is encompassed by a manicured private park and panoramic terrace overlooking Isola Bella, a small azure bay sometimes known as the Pearl of the Ionian Sea. A stunning infinity pool with a whirlpool corner was added during the last renovation and is a beautiful spot to sit out in the afternoon, admiring the ocean views. There is a stylish pool deck where you can lie out, basking in the glorious midday heat, reading a book, or working on your suntan.
Aside from the pool and the pool deck, there are several areas in the garden designed for you and your guests to enjoy, be it lounging with a glass of wine in the afternoon, dining al fresco, or indulging in the wonderful Italian concept of pleasant idleness known as “dolce far niente”. Having various outdoor seating options is perfect for a group of friends or couples traveling together, looking to benefit from some independence during the day.
