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.
Beautiful Property and great location
This home was absolutely beautiful. The pool was perfect, easy for the kids to get in and out. The house was very clean and the garden/patio flows really well. We went to various places around Sicily so the location was perfect for that. The butcher at the end of their street and the fruit trucks had amazing food and there is a grocer close by when they are closed. We were given lots of tips by Roberto which was nice.
Thanks a lot!! :) Sergio and Roberto
Lovely villa - shame about the weather!
Villa Calipso is a beautiful well-appointed villa with excellent facilities inside and lovely gardens with pool. Unfortunately the weather was unusually poor for some of the week we were there so we didn't get to use the pool much but mornings were sunny and breakfast on the patio with superb views of Etna was very special!
If we had one suggestion, it would be that a folder of information, which we have had when we have rented in other parts of the world, might be helpful. The sort of thing that contains information about the villa and its workings, local shops and restaurant suggestions, even possible trips or visits?
Thanks for the review! We'll work about your suggestion on a folder of information. Thanks again. Sergio & 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
A beautiful villa and garden
We had a great holiday at Villa Calipso - five adults and a baby. There was plenty of room for all of us and it was lovely having so many quiet places in the garden to sit and enjoy the wonderful and ever changing views of Mount Etna. Roberto and Stefania were always very helpful and had lots of ideas about local places to visit. We really loved our Sicilian meal cooked for us by Roberto's delightful mother - the food was absolutely delicious. We enjoyed our visits to Taormina and Syracuse and two of our party had great fun going to the top of Etna. Many thanks to Sergio and everyone for a very pleasant and comfortable stay.
Thanks for your kind review! We are very happy you enjoyed your stay at Villa Calipso.
Villa Calypso ligger ved foten av Taormina i sin grend kalt 'Trappitello'. Senteret er godt tjent og ligger i nærheten av motorveien langs veien som fører til Alcantara-dalen der ligger den berømte Gorges. Det er veldig maleriske naturlig elv som er hugget inn i vulkansk stein. Landsbyen Trappitello er bare 1. 5 km fra havet og er forbundet med sentrum av Taormina med buss. Villaen er omgitt av grøntområder langs kantene av en bakketopp der du kan nyte den vakre utsikten over vulkanen Etna. Bare 200 meter fra villaen er alle viktige tjenester for hverdagen (bank, postkontor, mat, kosmetikk, slakter, fisk, frukt og grønnsaker, barer og restauranter).
