FARMHOUSE WITH PRIVATE POOL AND MAGNIFICENT VIEW ON VOLCANO ETNA AND SEA VIEW

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Acireale - Casale Acqua e Fuoco

Perfect for joined families or a group of friends.

A renovated farm with pool in a stunning and perfectly peaceful setting between the sea and Mount Etna, close to Acireale (3 km). The private pool (size 10 x 5 m., deep 160 cm) is in use from April to the end of October.

The house is located on the highest part of the estate, overlooking an infinite number of lemon trees, Mount Etna and the coast as far as Taormina (35 km). The garden is beautifully tended, with palm trees and Mediterranean flowers.

The house consists of 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, a dining room with open kitchen, sofa bed and a dining table for 12 persons. The rooms are all on the ground floor and all have air-conditioning. There are three units with own entrance. The units and the kitchen are not connected from the inside. Unit 1 has a terrace with sea view, a double room, a twin room and a bathroom. Unit 2 consists of 2 double rooms, a single bed and 2 bathrooms. Unit 3 is a spacious double room with bathroom. The kitchen opens onto a covered terrace, perfect for al fresco dining.

Exploring eastern Sicily: The accommodation is an excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily. It is just three kilometres from Acireale (a pretty little city, built on a plateau of lava, that is known for its Baroque churches). Gardini Naxos, a seaside resort with beautiful sandy beaches distances 32 km. And a bit further we find Taormina ‘the pearl of the Mediterranean’ and the most exclusive seaside resort in Sicily. Its ancient Greek theatre is world famous for its extraordinary panoramic views. Santa Maria la Scala and Santa Tecla are pleasant seaside villages near the accommodation. In the village Santa Tecla, four kilometres away, is the renown fish restaurant “Da Lorenzo”. Both townshave pebbled beaches and a small port with vividly painted boats. In summer the villages become a seaside destination for the islanders who enjoy diving off the wooden platforms into the cool Mediterranean waters.

Exploring the volcano Etna: Several of the traditional lava-stone villages on the flanks of Etna are well worth a visit. Many guests at Casale Acqua e Fuoco, however, will be well content to relax in the stunning surroundings of the house, the garden and the pool. The villages of Etna, such as Trecastagni, Zafferana Etnea e Randazzo, are famous for their ancient lava flows, the architecture of their seventeenth century churches, their delicious local produce and the hospitality of the villagers. Situated 600 metres above sea level, they are a favourite retreat of the city dwellers who, in summer are in search of cool, fresh air, while in winter are in search of snow for skiing. Few people are aware that Etna is a popular location for skiers in winter. On some glorious days in winter, it’s even possible to ski the frozen slopes in the morning enjoying a wonderful panoramic view of the Mediterranean, and then, the same afternoon, go and sunbathe on the beaches below.

A USB stick is available on request with 15 hour of weekly traffic included.

About Viviana Leone / Giulia Lattanzio

We have been with Homeaway since 2006, proposing houses that are able to unfold Sicily's colours and charm at best.

Houses with quality furnishing in unique locations, with incredible views or with a pool, always accurately selected in order to satisfy our main wish: to see you falling in love with Sicily just like we did.

We provide you with transparent information and true pictures. What you see is exactly what you get. We will advise you as much as we can about travel info, transfers and car rental.

Dinners in villas and other extra services can also be arranged. Finally, our prices are final rates! There are no hidden additional costs. We are flexible with your arrivals and departures and if you need a late check-in this is usually possible.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Der Aufenthalt war prima - das Haus war toll und es hat uns sehr gefallen (obwohl es leider auch recht oft geregnet hat - die Kinder waren trotzdem jeden Tag im Pool).



Das Haus war beim ersten Mal schwer zu finden - ohne Navigationssystem wäre es sehr schwierig geworden. Auf jeden Fall waren Tiziana und ihr Mann sehr nett und hilfreich.

Auch, dass für den ersten Abend bereits Nudeln, Tomatensauce und Milch vorhanden waren, war super!



Die Lage zwischen Meer und Etna ist einfach fantastisch! Ein Tipp für alle anderen Urlauber ist: auf Sizilien nicht versuchen (wie vielleicht in Deutschland) vor 20 Uhr abends in einem Restaurant Essen gehen zu können - da hatten wir mit zwei Familien sehr lange gesucht und nichts gefunden ... ansonsten sind die üblichen Ausflugsziele natürlich zu empfehlen: Etna, Taormina, Syracusa ... und wir waren auch einen Tag auf Vulcano ... hier muss man nur früh genug losfahren, um auch spätestens gegen 11 uhr in Milazzo noch eine gute Fähre zu erreichen.



Ich denke, dass wir auf jeden Fall nochmal nach Sizilien kommen werden!

Something special - in all regards

  • 5 out of 5
We were 13 People from 10 to 86, and we had a lovely stay in Sicily. The property is lovely situated and very nice and quiet. The owner was very nice and we felt very welcome. Everybody had everything we needed. The view of Etna was worth the hole trip. Since the Sicilian traffic is difficult, travelling around is a bit stressing, and there is only one pizzeria in walking distance. But all over - just great!

Beautiful!

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay at Casale Acqua e Fuoco was very relaxing and peaceful. I would say it is far away from the centre, but close enough (by car) that you didn't feel isolated.

The house has all the necessary amenities and Tiziana and Santo were very welcoming and kind. The property was well maintained and this house is well laid out.The pool was beautiful, overlooking Mount Etna. Each room has its own air-conditioning, as well as access from the grounds. We enjoyed using the bbq and having dinners and lunches outdoors.

The only bit of advice I would offer would be to be careful on the single car road leading up to the house. A bit tricky if you have to back up to let someone else through, especially if you have a large car! Also, we were given the address prior to leaving so we could use our GPS, however, once we finally found the house (address and name of house is hidden) there was no one there to greet us. The property manager's were supposed to get in touch with us to give us Tiziana's phone number, but we were not contacted. Once we got to the house, we had to wait about an hour before we could enter. Tiziana and Santo were so apologetic and explained that they did not have our cell number.

Also, we were under the impression that WIFI was free no matter how much usage, however, we are given 15 hours free WIFI, which is not mentioned online, and then you have to purchase more time. This was a little of an inconvenience as my husband had to use quite a bit of time up due to work.

On the whole, we were very satisfied with the home and would definitely recommend the property!

Wonderful week at Casale Acqua e Fuoco

  • 5 out of 5
We just returned from Casale Acqua e Fuoco and are so very happy with how our holiday went. The house, garden and pool areas are just lovely. The little welcoming touches left by Santo and Tiziana coffee pasta fresh fruit olive oil (and cool beer in fridge!) were very much appreciated and made us feel very welcome. Tiziana and Santo were a great source of local knowledge and available when we had queries. The house and it\'s beautiful peaceful grounds are perfect for a family holiday. There were 8 of us including our 2 children and also 4 grandparents. So much space for everyone to gather together at mealtimes outdoor or inside and also space for us all to do our own thing. The children enjoyed picking a few lemons in the lemon groves.The views of Etna were spectacular a real highlight of our time there and then on the other side of the property the views over the sea.. simply stunning! We will be back one day soon.

Casala Acqua e Fuoco is a lovely place serounded by the lemon trees. The real look is much, much better than we had oportunity to see in internet. This is a elegant, stylish and comfortable place with swimming pool from where you can admire the active Ethna volcano. I can fully recomend this house.

Charming farmhouse surrounded by lemontrees

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderfull stay and holiday in the farmhous, which has a wonderfull site with the most beautifull view over the area and the way the rooms in the house are placed is really perfect for a family of 10-12 people. The only thing we think are missing, is some information about where we can buy bread, milk, meat etc. - we told this to the keyholder, and she agreed and promised to write a note of this information to good use for the next people who stayed at the property - we surely hope to come back another time.

Did not want to leave; Super Holiday!!!

  • 5 out of 5
We celebrated my Father`s 60th at Casale Acqua e Fuoco along with family, friends and our 7 month old son. It was tough to find but this is my only unsavoury comment, from the moment we arrived we were greeted by the super friendly owners, and left food & wine to start the stay. The rooms are tasteful & private, the kitchen is a small but fabulous dining area to congregate in, the pool was fab, good BBQ, and the views... just breathtaking. Imagine waking up to a beautiful view over Etna, among the lemon groves and breathing in fresh sea air. We could have done a lot more sight seeing but we were happy to laze by the pool and enjoy our surroundings at home. I must admit there was a lump in my throat when we left. Thank you very much Tiziana, Santo & the boys!!!

Situated near the town of Acireale on the east coast of Sicily, Casale Acqua e Fuoco is a good base from which to visit Taormina, Catania, Mount Etna and the various fascinating villages on its flanks called 'paesi Etnei'. The property is situated 3 km from Acireale, famous for its baroque churches. The picturesque fisherman's villages Santa Maria La Scala and Aci Trezza (5 km) both have pebbled beaches and a small port with vividly painted boats and good restaurants. In summer the villages become a seaside destination for the islanders who enjoy diving off the wooden platforms into the cool Mediterranean waters. The house is located on the highest part of the estate, overlooking an infinite number of lemon trees, huge Mount Etna and the coast as far as Taormina (35 km).

Other Activities: Excursion to Mount Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe
