Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Mascalucia - Cottages sull'Etna

peaceful paradise of plants with 8 scattered cottages and a pool

This property consists of 3 hectares, with botanical garden, vineyard and swimming pool and is located at Mascalucia on the southern slopes of Mount Etna. The owner transformed the property into a peaceful paradise, a park with the most beautiful Mediterranean plants and flowers. There are about 8 holiday homes of two kinds: large and small. Casetta Settanta and Casa Castagno are cottages suitable for a family of max 5 persons (including baby cot) and consist of 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, a living room with 2 single beds and a little kitchen. Mandorli, Orazio, Blu, Stalla, Cuoco and Palmento are perfect for a couple with a small child.

They consist of a bedroom, bathroom, a kitchenette apart and a terrace with outdoor furniture. There is no separate living room.

All the cottages are in the park and distances 50m from the swimming pool (open from 1 of April until 31 of October). These cottage have a terrace with outdoor furniture. You can opt to pay for breakfast and dinner, which are served on the terrace of the house where the owners live.

On the property you can also find a jeu-de-boules yard, a playground for your children and a botanical garden. Very close to the property you can find a pizzeria and the shopping streets of Mascalucia.

Exploring eastern Sicily: The accommodation is an excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily and the volcano Etna. It is just five kilometres from the highway 10 km from Catania and 15 km from Acireale (a pretty little city, built on a plateau of lava, that is known for its Baroque churches). Santa Maria la Scala and Santa Tecla are pleasant seaside villages near Acireale. Gardini Naxos, a seaside resort with beautiful sandy beaches distances 40 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. Syracuse and Noto are a 1 hour drive away.

A good place to stay in summer time,

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in the end of october with my husband and my two sons (10 and 13)

Clean

Wonderful garden, quiet, the countryside in town ...

Good place for ETNA, not far from airport

Nice breakfast and dinners althought I found it expensive comparing with the price in the area

Almost no kitchen, just OK to have a drink. Only one bowl. Even difficult to make a proper breakfast, if you are four people staying.

The beds are really small for the children.

There is no heating/air-conditionning in the small room where the children sleep

Not enough hot water for four showers.

The pool seems great but is not usable at that time of the year

Mascalucia is an excellent base from which to explore the eastern part of Sicily. The villages of Etna, such as Trecastagni, Zafferana Etnea and 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 700 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! The “Playa”, an endless sandy beach is found 15 km further, south of Catania. Charming fishing villages, such as Aci Trezza and Santa Maria La Scala (Acireale) are also near.

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