Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Giarre - Villa Bagolaro

villa with terrace, 4 bedrooms

Situated on a stretch of coast between Catania and Taormina, proudly surveying its estate from the crest of a hill is Villa Bagolaro, an 18th Century country house in a stunning and perfectly peaceful setting between the sea and Mount Etna. Indoor and outdoor living combine seamlessly due to the bright and welcoming rooms and their communication with the terraces. It would be difficult to ask for a more delightful setting. The living areas and bedrooms of Villa Bagolaro are all on one floor (the first floor). Villa Bagolaro consists of 4 bedrooms, a bathroom with shower, small tub, bidet and toilet, a large living area with fireplace and a double sofa bed, another living area with a fireplace, a kitchen with wood oven and next to it a dining room with dining table. Outside there is also a terrace with seating, deckchairs, extra toilet and a barbeque.Because of the presence of 2 fireplaces, the house offers a pleasant stay also during the few cold weeks of the short Sicilian winter.

The Area: Villa Bagolaro is an excellent base from which to explore Mount Etna and its surroundings. 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 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!

About Giulia Lattanzio / Joris Doesburg

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

We would like to send a personal letter expressing our gratitude. We had a wonderful stay, and we are most grateful for your servicing. Bagolaro is fantastic: Etna to the West and the Messina Street to the East.

Casa ideale per famiglie

  • 5 of 5

La casa è meravigliosa e ideale per 3 famiglie.

Il signor Luigi e la sua moglie sono molto disponibili e gentili.

Abbiamo passato un ottimo soggiorno, stesso il tempo freddo. La stufa e riscaldatori ci hanno servito bene. L'Etna con neve è ... meraviglioso.

Arrivederci,

torneremo in poco tempo

“Une maison patricienne....comme on en rêve !”

  • 4 of 5

Villa Bagolaro est une vieille dame empreinte de noblesse. Tout autour d'Elle flotte le parfum, l'imprégnation du passé. Elle est nichée dans les agrumes et ses parures sont de volubilis et bougainvilliers. Selon l'endroit d'où vous sortez de la Maison, le paysage est grandiose. Luigi et son épouse qui accueillent leurs "invités" sont très présents également en cas de besoin et donnent de précieux renseignements.

Un endroit privilégié qui a une âme que nous recommandons.

Nous y retournerons avec grand plaisir ..

Une maison patricienne....

  • 4 of 5

Villa Bagolaro est une vieille dame empreinte de noblesse. Tout autour d'Elle flotte le parfum, l'imprégnation du passé. Elle es nichée dans les agrumes et se parures sont de volubilis et bougainvilliers. Selon l'endroit où vous sortez de la Maison, le payasage est grandiose. Bien sûr, la modernité n'est pas sa "tasse de thé" et alors ??? ce serait peut-être la trahir.

Luigi et son épouse sont très présents si besoin et fort accueillants.

Un endroit privilégié qui a une âme et de plus, se trouve idéalement située pour de nombreuses visites.

Nous y retournerons avec grand plaisir .

Heavenly place tot relax

  • 5 of 5

The villa is a gem in a big lemon tree garden. Ideal place to relax with stunning view on the Etna at the back. Sea is not far away (15 min walk). Big supermarket only 10 minutes drive. Yes, there are some old-fashioned items in the house, but that has its charm! The owners are very friendly and eager to help, talking basic Italian could be helpful. Ask for some good restaurants: we ate very well at Torre Archirafi (but where can't you find good food in Italy!). I would recommend it to everybody who likes to enjoy holidays in a house with a soul!

Bon rapport qualité-prixGood price-quality ratio

  • 2 of 5

La maison est agréable et simple. A éviter pour les personnes en quête de vrai confort. (Attention : pas de machine à laver la vaisselle). Le propriétaire est très gentil. Le jardin est grand mais pas très propre comme beaucoup de lieux en Sicile. La maison est bien située pour visiter la région. En revanche, pas totalement calme car elle se trouve au sein d'un exploitation fruitière avec des engins qui démarrent tôt le matin. Pas d'internet comme indiqué sur le descriptif et équipement limité ( très peu de vaisselle, nous avons du acheter des saladiers).

A recommander pour famille nombreuse et budget moyen. Sinon, bof.

Car: recommended

Villa Bagolaro is an excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily. The villa lies halfway between Catania and Taormina and just seven 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, is just 25 kilometres from Villa Bagolaro. Beside it 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 Aci Trezza are pleasant seaside villages near Villa Bagolaro. In the village Santa Tecla, a few kilometres from Praiola, is the renown, but quiet cheap, fish restaurant “Da Lorenzo”. 2 km from Villa Bagolaro is the big supermarket 'Iper'. Also 2 km from the house is Carubba, a town, with several shops and squares.
