Loved our stay in this beautiful house. Great location with stunning views of Etna. Also enjoyed location - quiet village with everything we needed yet within easy driving distance from all the places we wanted to visit. Lovely garden and pool. Would recommend.
Spectacular views in a fantastic Villa
This is the most spectacular property I have ever stayed at ! And I stay at quite a few. It has that old world charm and It is even more beautiful than The VRBO pictures. There are so many charming comfortable places to relax . The windows and wrought iron are beautiful. Kitchen is nicely equipped . Roberto was fantastic setting us up and attending to anything we needed immediately all through the week.
I am recommending Villa Calypso to friends and family. Bravo Villa Calypso
Thank a lot for you very kind review!! I hope to host you again in the future. Sincerely. Sergio & Roberto
Lovely Villa with Wonderful Views
Lovely villa with a great outdoor space and lots of seating areas on multi-levels with a wonderful view of Mt. Etna.
Thanks for your kind review. We are happy you have appreciated your stay at Villa Calipso. Sergio & Roberto
I stayed here with my kids (10 and 13) and in-laws for a week in May. The property is absolutely amazing - even better than the photos make it look! There are so many different places to sit and have a drink/eat a meal, in the sun or shade, by the pool, on the terrace, all with fantastic views of Etna and the beautiful surrounding countryside. You are not overlooked anywhere on the property, so it feels very private. And the house itself is stunning, with high ceilings in the living area and a really well equipped kitchen. Even the showers were good - something you can’t always say about holiday lets! It’s also easy to get to by car from Catania airport, and well situated to get to Taormina and other places of interest. Overall would highly recommend this property.
Dear Sarah, thanks a lot for your very kind review! Sergio and the Villa Calipso staff
Absolutely beautiful and relaxing.
Weather was pretty poor but villa was delightful.
Magnificent & Beautiful but in need of some TLC!
Just one look at the images of Villa Calypso and you begin to imagine what a wonderful holiday opportunity awaits you at this truly spectacular villa set off of the Main Street of Trappitello.
It’s promise is hidden behind an innocuous black metal gated fence beyond which lies a treasure trove of traditional and rural Italian design. Once through the gates drive leads down to a wider path opening up to a sweeping terracotta stairway to the huge pool (16m long) and sunbathing area furnished with large sun umbrellas and comfortable loungers.
The interior is equally stunning if somewhat dated, furnished with Italianate rococo pieces heavy on the eye but fascinating to look at. With two terraces one for dining and one for lounging both overlooking Mount Etna you may feel as if you have found paradise.
The bedrooms are far more modest two of which have air-con and comfortable double beds. As for the bathrooms, they are perfectly adequate for a weeks stay.
The living rooms are comfortable if a little overused with the sofas showing distinct signs of wear. The kitchen has everything and more that you would expect to find in a lived in family home and that is obviously what this is, a wonderful family home that has character in abundance.
However all of the compliments cannot make up for the fact that the entire property is seriously showing its age and the fact that it was last refurbished 20 years ago with everything now in need of some serious TLC. But that said a stay here can prove quite magical beyond imagination.
Stephania and Roberto were always on hand to resolve and minor issues that cropped up but if there was one point in particular that disappointed it was that pool and surrounding patio area was only cleaned once during our 7 day stay.
Dear Paul, thank for your kind review. Actually, further maintenance work has already been programmed for the next winter. Regarding the frequency of cleaning the garden, in order to avoid disturbing the guests this is done every 3-4 days. But in case of request we are very happy to increase its frequency. Moreover, as from your request, we have also performed a midweek cleaning without additional costs. Sergio
Villa Calypso is situated at the foot of Taormina in his hamlet called 'Trappitello'. The center is well served and is located close to the highway along the road leading to the Alcantara Valley where are located the famous Gorges. It is very picturesque natural river which is carved into the volcanic rock. The village of Trappitello is only 1. 5 km from the sea and is connected with the center of Taormina with bus services. The villa is surrounded by greenery along the edges of a hill where you can enjoy the beautiful view of Mount Etna. Only 200 meters from the villa are all major services for everyday life (bank, post office, food, cosmetic, butcher, fish, fruit and vegetables, bars and restaurants).
