OUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 out of 5
We were welcomed by Nadia and Fabio . We had a beautiful time in this place of paradise. From the fresh fruit and vegetables her father brought us to the walks to the village. And for overseeing the wine making and pasta and sausage for neigh ours across the road. Was truly a happy place. The accommodation was very clean and well maintained the grounds and the pools were lovely. The village is within walking distance and the markets are fully stocked with what you need. Thank you to Nadia and her family for sharing their home with us. We would love to return one day. They even gave us a ride to train station highly recommend anyone to stay here!

LOVELY STAY

  • 5 out of 5
We spent a week iin the house in June 2012. We were a group of 5 friends. The house was clean and well equipped. The swimming pool was a pleasure, we could relax next to it to enjoy the sun and it is large and deep enough to enjoy swimming. We could park the car in the driveway. Nadia and her family were helpful and friendly.
The house is well located to explore Eastern Sicily: Mount Etna, Taormina, Syracusa, Ragusa...
If you want to have a good time in Sicily, this is your house!

EXCELLENT VILLA, PRIVATE PARADISE!!!

  • 5 out of 5
"We stayed in Casa EtnaMare in september 2012 with our one-year old daughter. The house is absolutely lovely and well equipped, complete with baby-crib and baby-chair. Very clean. Spacious kitchen. But you will not spend a lot of time inside. The garden, the outside porch and the swimming pool are a treat. The owners of the house live on the same property, they are really nice, modest and discrete. If you enjoy fresh fruits, you are welcome to pick fresh figs and grapes from the lush garden. The pool is private and very well maintained.
The young couple Nadia and Dario who welcomed us in the house are extremely nice and polite. They speak english very well and are more than helpful. We travelled without a car - with is not recommendable, by the way - so they arranged pickup from the airport and local transportation with their own car.
The surroundings are beautiful. The village of Santa Venerina is small, but offers a couple of nice restaurants and supermarkets.
EtnaMare was a great choice, even better than we hoped!

Andrea and Floris from Holland."

GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 out of 5
We had a lovely hoilday in the house. Nadia and her father were very helpful and gave us a tour of their gardens and picked fresh fruit for us. The house is nice, comfortable and clean and the pool and gardens are beautiful. Our kids loved the pool and we spent a lot of time just relaxing and swimming. The weather in October was great . The house is really handy for trips to Mount Etna, Taormina and other attractions. Its great to see Mount Etna smoking form the house ! Catania is also worth a visit. The village is quiet and not touristy but but we found nice restaurants 10 - 15 mins walk away. We had a great time and would recommend the house.

Owner's Response: Dear Ian, we would like to thank you again for choosing our property and for such a beautiful review. It is very important for letting our prospective guests know how our home and its location really are, but it is even more important because it describes the beauty of our land, where swimming is very enjoyable throughout October and where, let me also say, nice skiing is possible between December and March on the slopes of Etna, a unique experience... sea view! Weather is mild all year long and, whatever the season, Sicily is well worth a visit to discover antiquity, historical buildings, art and natural beauty. Thanks for your kindness, we look forward to hosting you again in the near future! Nadia & family

SUMMER HOLIDAY IN SANTA VENERINA WE WON'T FORGET

Summer Holiday in Santa Venerina we won't forget
  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at the villa for 2 weeks in August with our two children. We thought the villa and the grounds and the pool were all set in idyllic surroundings. We had a very warm welcome from Nadia and her Dad. Both my husband and I and our children really loved being there for the whole 2 weeks. Nadia's Dad was lovely and presented us with fresh ripe figs from his orchard which were really tasty. I just wish my Italian was a little better so we could have spoken at more length.

The villa is set on the drive up to Mount Etna and the village is very quiet. The villa is well equipped and immaculately clean and tidy. It is in easy driving distance for many points of interest by car. The local area was able to provide all of our family needs for the 2 weeks and we felt very safe whilst there.

We would like to thank Nadia and her family for their kind reception of our family which made our stay in Sicily very enjoyable.

Kind regards Karin, Kiley, Emma, Lucy

1 WEEK GREAT HOLIDAYS IN APRIL 2012

  • 5 out of 5
We arrived on 19th april in Casa etnamare and spent an amazing ten days. Both the house and the location are wonderful. It was our first time in Sicilia and we hope to return again. Everybody loved the beautiful pool, the garden and the terrace. The house is very clean and very well maintained. It is minutes away from Etna and Taormina. Nadia and their parents are very friendly and ensured we had a wonderful time. We really enjoyed our vacations and were lucky enough to see an eruption of the Etna right in front of the house.
Thnak you again to Nadia and her family for the warm wellcome and kindness.
Pierre, Patricia, Mathilde and Juliette

Santa Venerina

Santa Venerina is an excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily thanks to its very strategic position halfway between Catania and Taormina. The village distance 5 minutes from the highway A18 Catania-Messina from which (in an average time of 20 minutes) it is possible to reach the most beautiful places of eastern Sicily.

The charming town of Acireale distance only 15 km from Santa Venerina. It is situated next to the 'Riviera dei Ciclopi', a unique coast with a crystal clear sea and lava stacks (faraglioni) which is believed by Greek mythology to correspond to the stones thrown by blind Polifemo to Ulysses.The Riviera traditional resort towns of Acicastello and Acitrezza have long been a magnet for local day trips and offer arguably the best Granita to be found anywhere and lots of good seafood trattorias.

The village is just 25 km from Gardini Naxos and 30 km (20 minutes with the highway) from Taormina, which draws more visitors than any other town in Sicily, thanks to its splendid position and its Greek/Roman theatre with a unique view of Mount Etna.Torre Archirafi, Pozzillo and Santa Maria la Scala are pleasant seaside villages near Santa Venerina. The nearest can be found in Praiola (8 km), a wild pebbled beach next to an impressive cliff.

Santa Venerina is also an excellent starting point from which to explore Mount Etna and its surroundings. The towns and villages that dot the flanks of Etna, such as Zafferana Etnea, Trecastagni and Randazzo, are well worth stopping off for a visit to their seventeenth century churches built in lava stone or for a spot of lunch in restaurants offering delicious local products. The village is only 4 km away from Zafferana Etnea and 10 km from Rifugio Sapienza, the main ski area, where it is possible to take the Etna cableway.
