Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Santa Venerina - Casa Mareneve

2 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 8, pool, terrace

Casa Mareneve lies just outside the village of Santa Venerina, on the crossroads among Taormina, Catania, Mount Etna and the sea. Casa Mareneve consists of two separate units that are joined together by a covered terrace and a pergola of grape vines that offer very pleasant shade in summer. The first unit is a one-room apartment with a large window, fireplace, couch, sofa bed, double bed, bathroom (shower, toilet), dining table, kitchen and pizza oven. From the kitchen you have access to the terrace that is next to the other unit. This apartment consists of a large living room with a double sofa bed, kitchen, dining table, fireplace, bathroom (bath, bidet, toilet), a double bedroom and a small single room. The pool (10 x 5 m, between 1 and 3 meters deep) is open from 1st April to the end of October and is for the exclusive use of the guests. It also has a diving-boeard. The pool is located next to a terrace in Eolian style, which overlooks the sea and the beautiful garden with palm trees and Mediterranean flowers. There is also a little toilet next to the pool.

The presence of fireplaces and a wood stove make Casa Mareneve also suitable for a stay in low season.

You can rent bicycles in a shop in Santa Venerina. The cost is about 10 euro for 1 day.

Casa Mareneve is an ideal base to visit a greater part of Sicily. Santa Venerina has an old town center, shops and some restaurants. The villages Zafferana, Milo, Fornazzo and Sant'Alfio are higher on the Etna and are worth visiting. The larger town Acireale (5 km) is situated above the sea and has a square with magnificent churches and cozy shopping streets. In the nearby fishing village of Santa Maria La Scala, Torre Archirafi and Aci Trezza there are good seafood restaurants. Local bathers come during summer to dive into sea from the wooden terraces that are installed on the rocky.

Good location for Etna, Taormina & Siracuse.

The gardens and pool area were absolutely lovely with lots of shade and sitting areas but I feel most holidaymakers would prefer sunloungers to the chairs provided. This would give guests the chance to put their feet up and get an all over tan (both front and back). In addition, I think a few inexpensive facilities inside the house could immensely add to the comfort of visitors. In particular, an electric kettle, wine glasses, mugs, local maps and perhaps a 'house book' with recommendations for restaurants, supermarkets, etc (usually supplied by other owners) would enhance staying at the house. The fridge was also a bit 'tatty' and could do with replacement. On the plus side there was plenty of storage, the house was very clean and we received a very warm welcome from the owner's daughter.

The house is located on a very quiet road on the outskirts of town and is conveniently near the motorway. The town is not that attractive and lacks good restaurants but there are many places to visit nearby.

A good starting point to explore Sicily

  • 5 out of 5
Casa Mareneve is conform as expected to the description provided.
The owner was very helpful and pleasant.

The house is calm with a nice swimming pool.
Localization of the house is good, even if the first beach is few kilometers far from it (A car is essential).
But it's a good starting point to explore east of Sicily.
Highways that tour round Sicily ease travel.
We really enjoyed Taormina with its nice pedestrian streets and Aeolian islands.
We discovered by chance the city of Tindari which is a place of pilgrimage.

To finish, the only thing that might be useful to implement in the house is internet access.
But, it's a minor point. I repeat, all was fine.

Heerlijk verblijf en perfecte uitvalsbasis

  • 5 out of 5
Met een groep van 7 vrienden en vriendinnen hebben we dit vakantieverblijf gehuurd. Bij aankomst troffen we een schitterende tuin met een fantastisch zwembad (met duikplank!) en terras. Hier hebben we heel wat uurtjes doorgebracht.

Achter het verblijf ligt Villa Mareneve (waar ook de eigenaars verblijven). Erg handig: voor vragen kun je zo bij hen terecht. Een gedeelte van die villa wordt ook verhuurd, maar je hebt totaal geen last van andere vakantiegangers.

Het verblijf is afgesloten met een automatisch hek, waarvan we de sleutel van de eigenaars hebben gekregen; veel privacy en een eigen oprit met ruim voldoende plek om (huur)auto's kwijt te kunnen. Auto's heb je hier wel nodig want in het dorpje Santa Venerina is verder weinig te beleven. Er zijn een paar restaurants. Een goede supermarkt is er wel en een grote supermarkt kun je vinden in Giarre.

De accommodatie bestaat uit een huis en een dependance die er beide prima uitzien. Schoon en van alle gemakken voorzien. Let wel: met meer dan 5 personen moeten er een aantal op slaapbanken slapen. Deze slaapbanken waren oke, maar na 11 dagen niet meer zo comfortabel. Het geheel heeft een super gezellige indeling en ligging door de mooie tuin, de terrasjes en pergola's met druiven.

De houten klapstoeltjes in de tuin zijn niet zo stevig helaas, we zijn door 3 stuks gezakt!

Zoals gezegd, je hebt hier wel een auto nodig. Bussen rijden 's avonds vrijwel niet meer en taxi's zijn zeer moeilijk te krijgen. Met een auto rijd je zo naar de Etna, Taormina en Isola Bella, Acireale en Catania. Sicilianen rijden nogal roekeloos, maar daar wen je snel aan. Als uitvalsbasis voor het verder verkennen van Sicilie een heerlijke plek om vanuit te reizen en tot rust te komen (en uiteraard te genieten van het heerlijke zwembad). Aanrader!

Car: necessary

Santa Venerina is a perfect base from which to explore eastern Sicily. The village lies halfway between Catania and Taormina and just 15 km 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 a sandy beaches, is just 25 km from Santa Venerina (15 minutes with the highway). Next to Giardini Naxos 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. Pozzillo, Santa Maria la Scala are Aci Trezza are pleasant seaside villages near Santa Venerina. The nearest can be found in Praiola (7 km), a wild pebbled beach next to an impressive cliff.
