A Little Piece of Paradise in Piedmonte Etneo

  • 5 of 5

We are so thankful that we found this beautiful and tranquil villa that sits on a hill beneath Mt Etna overlooking the Ionian sea. The location and park-like setting were, for us, absolutely magical. The charming Agata was the perfect host, welcoming us with caponata and a bottle of wine, and attending to our needs with the perfect combination of attentiveness and discretion. Bellissimo!

Un rêve !

  • 5 of 5

Ce lieu a une âme. Il faut imaginer un vaste parc organisé en terrasses où l'on trouve des fleurs de toutes sortes, de grands arbres superbes, des mandariniers odorants, et plus haut encore des oliviers... un jardin féerique où les enfants ont pu vivre mille et une aventures, et puis, une imposante demeure, majestueuse et enchanteresse qui surplombe le village et s'ouvre sur un panorama de rêve : la mer... Et la maîtresse des lieux nous a accueillis comme des rois ! Agata a été une hôtesse adorable, à la fois très prévenante, discrète et d'une extrême générosité, elle nous a littéralement choyés !

De ce coin de paradis, il nous a été facile de visiter la côte ionienne, ainsi que Syracuse, Noto et bien sûr de nous rendre sur l'Etna.

D'autre part, on trouve au village tous les commerces nécessaires. Vraiment, nous n'aurions pas pu rêver mieux ! Inutile de dire que nous avons tous été conquis, petits et grands (nous étions 7) et que nous espérons pouvoir séjourner à nouveau dans ce magnifique endroit.

Geschichtsträchtig und zauberhaft

  • 5 of 5

Eine Allee aus Mandarinenbäumen, Palmen, Olivenhaine, weiße Kalla und Lilien - schöner kann eine Zufahrt nicht sein. Die Villa, mit behutsamer Hand und viel Engagement gerettet, ist zauberhaft sowohl in ihrer Anmutung als auch in ihrer Ausstattung und Lage. Kein Wunsch bleibt offen. Agata, die Hausherrin, könnte fürsorglicher und liebevoller nicht sein: Sie hat uns (wir waren sieben, aber es hätte in der geräumigen Villa auch Platz für 10) mit Kuchen, Wein und Antipasti und vor allem mit großer Herzlichkeit empfangen. Sie hat uns verlässlich betreut und auch mit Tipps für die alltägliche Verpflegung, die typische Küche Siziliens, für Sehenswürdigkeiten und mit Kontaktadressen versorgt, wie eine Botschafterin der Insel. Mehr als empfehlenswert für alle, die Sizilien, die Gastfreundschaft und Geschichte zu schätzen wissen. Und all jene, die Geräumigkeit schätzen und gern nah am Vulkan wandern.

Lieu et accueil inoubliables

  • 5 of 5

Une propriété superbe avec une vue somptueuse et un parc magnifique, l'endroit est exceptionnel. Un accueil très chaleureux d'Agata avec les petits plats cuisinés par ses soins le premier soir, une cuisine équipée pour cuisiner pour une grande famille de gourmands, il ne manquait rien ! Avons apprécié les commerces du village et la mer à proximité, les sorties sur l'Etna et à Taormine. Merci encore à notre hôtesse pour sa contribution discrète mais efficace à ce séjour inoubliable.

Una bellissima esperienza

  • 4 of 5

Al nostro arrivo la signora Agata ci ha subito accolti con una serie di prelibatezze tipiche siciliane; la villa è immersa nel verde di un parco e dal giardino si può godere di una meravigliosa vista del mare e dell'Etna; La possibilità di avere un parcheggio privato dentro il parco è sicuramente un vantaggio per chi noleggia auto; La cucina è ben fornita di tutti gli elettrodomestici nonchè di pentole e stoviglie; posizione molto comoda per raggiungere a pochi km Taormina e l'Etna e a pochi minuti dalle spiagge di Cottone e San Marco (le più belle della zona); nel complesso la casa è molto confortevole, spaziosa e pulita.

A nostro modo di pensare ci potrebbero essere degli accorgimenti che renderebbero questa villa davvero unica: posizionare veli o zanzariere alle finestre in quanto la zona è infestata da zanzare; installare un condizionatore d'aria quantomeno nel soppalco visto che alla notte nonostante i ventilatori l'aria è irrespirabile; dotare i bagni di box doccia o tenda da doccia per evitare di "allagare" il bagno ogni qualvolta si fa la doccia. Infine, l'ultimo aspetto che ci sentiamo di far notare, ma ci rendiamo conto delle difficoltà strutturali, è il fatto che nel soppalco non vi è un bagno e alla notte scendere una scala di legno accendendo le luci significa svegliare quasi tutti gli ospiti.

Riassumendo il tutto, consigliamo questo immobile a chi si vuole godere sia il mare sia la tranquillità di una villa immersa nel verde.

Owner's Response: Vi ringrazio per gli elogi fatti alla casa, alla sua posizione ed al giardino ma grazie soprattutto per aver indicato e consigliato a futuri ospiti la mia amata casa. Sono tuttavia rammaricata che qualcosa durante i vostro soggiorno vi abbia deluso e sento l’esigenza, a conclusione della stagione , di rispondere in merito. Riguardo “ l’infestazione” di zanzare e l’aria irrespirabile, temo che la vostra esperienza sia stata pregiudicata da un periodo estivo particolarmente caldo. Piedimonte si trova alle pendici dell’Etna, a circa 400 metri di altitudine e da sempre è considerato un luogo ideale dove villeggiare proprio per sfuggire al caldo ed all’umidità della città. Per aver riprova che si sia trattato di uno sfortunato evento, unico, e purtroppo coincidente con il vostro soggiorno, ho voluto aspettare ed appurare che gli ospiti arrivati dopo di voi , al pari di coloro che vi hanno preceduto, non lamentassero gli stessi fenomeni ed i vostri disagi. Farò certamente tesoro dei vostri preziosi consigli ed esprimo tutta la mia gratitudine per aver intitolato la vostra vacanza “ una magnifica esperienza” Un caro saluto a voi tutti. Agata

Un havre de paix et un accueil inoubliable!

  • 5 of 5

Malgré

une heure d'arrivée très tardive à cause de problèmes de compagnie aérienne, Agata nous a accueilli très chaleureusement. C'est une hôtesse exceptionnelle! Une superbe table couverte de spécialités siciliennes (dont une marmelade de mandarine maison a tomber) nous attendait ainsi qu'un délicieux gâteau fait maison! La maison typique est merveilleuse : elle a une âme! Le parc qui l'entoure est si beau qu'on y a pic niquait avec les enfants. et que dire de cette vue d'un coté sur l'Italie et de l'autre sur le grandiose Etna! a quelques pas du superbe village de piedimonte! En bref on a trouvé l'âme de la sicile typique que l'on recherchait! merci Agata!

Typical late nineteenth-century Sicilian villa surrounded by green in a private park, in the proximity of the center of Piedimonte Etneo.

It can be considered as a peaceful oasis located on the slopes of the Mount Etna, very close to the Etna National Park, to beaches of Fondachello and Cottone and to the Alcantara Gorges. The visitor will be surprised how easily it is possible to reach the most important attractions of the island and the area. The proximity with Calatabiano (archeological site, famous for its medieval castle), Taormina and its Greek theatre, Catania and Acireale, makes the Villa an ideal choice for those who love both nature and arts. At the same way, Milazzo, from where the hydrofoils take off for the Aeolian Islands, and Syracuse are also easily reachable.

500 mt from the Villa there is the the railway station of the traditional train “Circumetnea”, in use from 1895, which will allow the visitor to take a tour of the small villages located on the Mount Etna and take pictures of the breathtaking landscapes of the volcano.

Sports lovers can take advantage from the close and most beautiful golf center in Sicily as well as the ski slopes of the Mount Etna.

Our guests can profit from agreements with a restaurant and a pizzeria, which does home delivery both day and night.
