The apartment in villa has a super beautiful view. It is clean and comfortable but no kitchen. You can use the complete space outside, with astonishing view. I don't suggest to family with kids, there is stairs and difficult to park in all Taormina. You need to park and walk for 10-20 mins. But the apartment is very beautiful and clean.

Communication with Emily was excellent and she made the arrival process very easy. Thank you! Now for the Lodge! What a find!! The apartment itself is stylish and has everything you need and spacious for two people. You enter through a private garden with hammock and breakfast table with the most amazing view ever!!! It overlooks crystal blue water and the yachts in the bay! The huge double patio doors from the bedroom also have the same view which make the whole place feel special. Taormina is very busy, but this little lodge is a perfect retreat!

Dear Guests,

My name is Audacity.

I am a professional novelist, analytical psychologist and adventurer.

As a novelist, my main themes are erotic philosophy, sensuosity, the psychology of Carl Jung and the philosophy of the early Athenian hedonists.

I use this property, which I have affectionately named 'Villa Krater', as an atelier for my writing and illustrative work and as an entertainment space for various writer, artist and other friends and acquaintances.

I have listed the property as an opportunity to make new encounters with some of the many hundreds of fascinating travellers who pass through Taormina each day and who may share similar interests to my own.
