Giano Vacation Rental

Contemporary in design and style, this property allows to experience upscale living in the desirable location of Taormina, Sicily’s most popular summer resort town and still a favorite among all whom visited.

Thanks to its sought-after location, when renting Penthouse Giano you can walk to the main corso in 5 minutes or reach the cable car to the beach in just 10 minutes. Taormina is mostly a ZTL zone (Limited Traffic Zone) and parking can be an inconvenience so renting a car is not recommended. You are better off hiring a private driver if you want to take daily trips and explore the beautiful surrounding area.


Ground Floor

The open plan contemporary styled living room welcomes you with its floor-to-ceiling glass panels that flood the space with natural light. The dining area provides comfortable seating for all guests and the kitchen area is fully equipped. The hushed palette was chosen to ensure that the eye is drawn to the view and not distracted by the clean lined furnishing in the room. Wellness area equipped with TV, fitness machine, and bathroom with emotional chromo therapeutic shower.

Outside Features

The real luxury of the house are its panoramic ocean front terraces facing the Ionian sea. Here you can enjoy sunbathing, relaxing in the outdoor Jacuzzi while staring at the stunning views, and the enchanting starry nights will be a dreamy backdrop while drinking perfectly chilled wine.

Sicily Travel Guide

Diverse & Divine 

The largest island in the Mediterranean is also one of the most culturally and geographically diverse regions of Italy. Sicily’s eclectic history – including Greek, Arab, Norman, Spanish, and English influences – is represented in its unique cuisine and fascinating variety of architecture. 

Wander the narrow medieval streets of Palermo, where you’ll get a flavor for local Sicilian life and have a chance to taste babbaluci (marinated baby snails sold in paper cornets, perfect for eating on the run) and Sicily’s famous slushy ice dessert, granita, from street vendors. Be sure to walk up and down the enormous lava dunes of Mount Etna, Europe’s highest active volcano at approximately 3350 meters, and meander over its moonlike surface. The beaches in Sicily are another can't-miss attraction; composed of both white and black sand and fringed with orange and lemon orchards, they're an entirely unique beach experience.
