The house is regularly occupied by the owners and is equipped with all the amenities. The kitchen is well equipped, spacious and bright. Villa Calypso has valuable furniture mainly from "Sicilian" handicraft. The garden is particularly suitable for children with swing and "house on the tree". Located on several levels, the garden offers a beautiful view from any angle. There are ornamental plants, but also the famous orange "Tarot" red, lemon trees (winter-spring), the "fichi d'india" (early September) and many natural flavorings. There is parking for 2 cars. The pool is 6 x 12 mt, well exposed and with a pleasant temperature. The deepest part is 2.70 mt, the shallower less than 1 m. The villa, whose main building dates back to the 800', is situated on a hill facing Mount Etna and dominating the valley of the Alcantara. It is surrounded by citrus groves planted with lemon trees. It is located in the district of Trappitello Taormina, at the beginning of the road to the Alcantara Gorges. The location of Villa Calipso is ideal, being placed in an independent and quiet environment, just a few feet (200 meters) from shops and services. It is also a few minutes away from all major attractions of Taormina "Isola Bella" (4 km), the Alcantara Gorges (6 km), Etna (45 km) and only 2 km from the highway. A few meters from Villa Calipso there is a local bus stop for the city of Taormina and the beaches.
Tips and activities. The superb location allows easy access to all major tourist destinations in Sicily. The climate of the area makes it particularly attractive in the months of May-June and September-November. In June there is, among other activities, the Taormina Film Festival. The excellent organization of Villa Calypso, and services make this a particularly attractive place for young couples with children. Villa Calipso is suitable even during the winter period, when visiting Sicily is an amazing experience. The house is located 45 minute to Linguaglossa ski center; skiing on the Vulcano is an unforgettable adventure. The best period for skiing is December to March.

Excellent location - we did not find a better view of Etna anywhere else than when we opened the curtains in the morning!
The owner went beyond his duty to help us with any issues we had. He was extremely considerate of our needs.
Our toddler and baby loved this place, although it needs child proofing for very young kids (especially the stairs).
Stairs also dont have a hand rail which makes it difficult for older people or those with mobility issues.
Impressed with the house staff - especially the pool guy, who was charming, friendly and very kind.
We did not speak Italian which made communicating with cook too tricky. But the owner and check-in staff were always very understanding.
Some issues with minor leaky roof in bedroom, accessing the villa during a festival, an ant infestation in the kitchen, working out the hot water for bathing, and mosquitos (October). But again the owner was always at the end of the phone to help even at a late hour.
Hot shower by the pool was fabulous. Lovely big bathtub which the kids loved.
Tasteful interesting furnishing. The villa has lots of character.
We were delighted with all the help yourself food items in the kitchen (pasta, cereal, local honey etc) - very little need to go shopping!
This is a truely wonderful place that offers so much more than your average hotel. You will not be disappointed when you arrive. It is extremely easy to drive to.
Highly recommended for families, particularly once it is tweaked to accomodate seniors and children.
