Taormina and Eastern Sicily, Sicily, Italy
Developed by the current owners’ ancestors since the 15th century, the history of the San Giorgio estate goes back thousands of years, and is now a thriving organic citrus farm. The stunning manor house is set amid lawned tropical gardens designed by a famous Italian landscape gardener with additional expert advice from a British gardener and is lush with precious palm trees collected from all over the world, carob, agaves, aromatic Mediterranean shrubs and surrounded by the citrus orchards.
Poised between Etna and the sea, the villa is a supreme example of Sicilian elegance and charm, with eight exquisite spacious suites, individually decorated with antique and vintage furnishings, complete with luxury en suite bath or shower rooms with Sicilian bathroom amenities, and each with doors to a private balcony or to the garden. Here a large pool is backed by the beautiful Orangerie, its elegant drawing and dining rooms forming the social heart of the house; its upper floor enjoying breathtaking views of the valley and Mount Etna. A sauna and floodlit tennis court nestle within the orange groves, and home-grown produce is used in local and Mediterranean cuisine, prepared by the cook for every meal. A superb venue for a special celebration.

Perhaps Sicily’s main tourist destination, Taormina has something for everyone. A fabulous coastline, a land and history shaped by an active volcano and a choice of a low key evening or a livelier night a little further down the coast. The east coast’s history of being conquered has led to a rich cultural heritage with so many sites to see – most famously being the ancient theatres. With this in mind, it could be easy to miss out on a shopping experience – choose from the independent gift shops or the more well-known stores found in Catania. And of course, you can’t avoid the magnificent and varied Italian cuisine.
