Extraordinary villa in Taormina!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 8 Anericans looking for a place in Sicily to serve as a base for our exploration of the area and celebration of our son's wedding. Our son chose the perfect place in booking Le Case del Príncipe. This villa has six lovely ensuite bedrooms, a huge family kitchen and ample indoor and outdoor common areas, along with a large pool and deck area. We were greeted by the wonderful Monica, guest manager of the property. We were made to feel right at home and Monica was so helpful with a huge generosity of spirit. The house cook was Mary. We had a specially prepared traditional Sicilian dinner one evening that was a culinary masterpiece. The Prince chose wisely in having these wonderful women representing him and his glorious Villa. Our stay at Le Case del Príncipe was the single most memorable vacation of my life. Our thanks to the Prince, Monica and Mary. You will truly fall in love with this beautiful place with the magnificent Mt. Etna in the background

Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Le Case Del Principe. My Wife and I traveled from the US and rented the Estate house for Friends & Family & Ourselves for the first week of July in 2016. We spoke with Prince Gabrielle over the phone to arrange the rental and found him to be very helpful. We were married in Taormina and the villa was a great base for all of our activities. There were 8 of us. The estate was beautiful, with views of Etna, the mountains, vineyards & orchards.

Upon arrival we were greeted by Monica, the caretaker of the Villa. Monica gave us a tour of the property, told us what there was in the area and even gave us a ride to the market. She was amazingly helpful. We had a bit of a medical emergency when one of my friends dislocated his shoulder. Monica came to our rescue, arranged an ambulance and stayed with my friend for hours at the hospital translating for him. She was truly amazing and went above and beyond and we were extremely grateful for her help.

The house had a Kitchen where we cooked dinner almost every night, we got fresh meats & produce from the market right up the road from the property. When we weren’t touring the area or getting married we spent our down time relaxing around the pool & wandering around the property. We found the rooms & property to be comfortable & clean. The town of Trapitello was a short walk from the Villa. Every morning I would walk into town & get fresh pastries & cappuccinos for the house from the local bar. The town had anything we needed and the walk had some really neat views of some of the other vineyards & orchards in the area.

The night before we were married we had Maria, the house chef, cook dinner for us. Maria’s meal was delicious with fresh local Sicilian dishes & wine that seemed to never end. I was even able to get her Pistachio Pasta Recipe. Maria was very sweet & accommodating, reminding me much of my own Sicilian Grandmother. The meal was a real traditional Italian experience. By the way her home made Limoncello was also amazing.

Our stay at the Villa was one of the best and most memorable trips of my life. Everyone in our party had a great time. We look forward to coming back one day and staying at Le Case Del Principe well worth the price.

So grateful we found this place!

  • 5 of 5

I recently got married in Taormina and we stayed here with a couple family members and friends. The property is gorgeous and well kept in a beautiful setting. Monica and Maria were amazing! They have an option to add a home cooked meal and it is definitely worth it. Maria is an incredible cook. Monica was so helpful, patient and attentive. One of our guests accidentally dislocated his shoulder and she was right there to help us get the medical attention he needed. I cannot recommend this place enough. Thank you all so much for a beautiful and unforgettable stay!

A Spectacular Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our group cannot say enough great things about this estate. Mathew grounds, pools, villa's and main house were better than we could have hoped. Renting something on line, so far away, and for so many people is quite unnerving. Arrival was wonderful and the enjoyment continued. The owner, manager, and staff could not do enough for us. We had functions at the site which only enhanced our stay. The time, effort and cooking were just spectacular. The staff went the extra mile and made our dinners and other functions so memorable.
