Torre Isola Bella

3 guests · 1 bedroom · 3 bathrooms
Cinderella-castle stonework hides contemporary interiors at this restored tower above the bay of Isola Bella. Just as a glass railing fits perfectly between the wall’s crenellations, so do sculptural modern furnishings fit seamlessly into open-concept rooms. Watch the sun sparkle on the sea from this hilltop perch or walk to the beach and a cable car to the old town center of Taormina.
Water stretches to the horizon in front of the villa’s sunny terrace—and you can take in the views from a lounger, alfresco sitting and dining areas that can be covered, and a hot tub. There’s also a balcony off the great room that’s an ideal place to sip the day’s first espresso. In the evenings, watch the lights come on in town or tune in to the satellite TV, integrated sound system, and Wi-Fi inside.
Step through an arched doorway and into the sleek, utterly chic living spaces of this luxury property. White walls and pearl-toned floors and ceilings are a pared-down backdrop for lilac sofas, wide-legged dining chairs with seating for 4, and a kitchenette anchored by a brass island. Malachite green panels draw the eye up to the mezzanine level—and a spiral staircase leads there.
The loft area above the great room has a queen bed and access to a hall bathroom. There’s also a second bedroom with a double bed and private ensuite bathroom. The bedrooms share a simple yet sophisticated design philosophy, with cream-colored walls, charcoal bathroom fixtures and brass accents.
Most visitors to Taormina debate whether to stay by the sea or the town center; a holiday at this vacation rental puts you between the beach and the shopping and dining. Though it’s set on the road that runs between, you can walk down to the water or to a cable car that runs to the downtown. Go for a family swim and spot fish in the clear water, explore the town’s ancient Greek theater, or relive your honeymoon over dinner at a restaurant hidden away on a winding street.
