So much more than the photos....

  • 5 of 5

Nothing could possibly prepare you for this villa. It is so incredibly special and is one of those lucky home-rental finds where you can actually stay in someone's home and it feels like people actually live there. Not a single thing about this place is generic...

The property itself is like a fairy wonderland, in the shadow of Mount Etna, and steeped in history.

Agata, the owner, is quite possibly the most gracious host I've had the pleasure of renting from. She provided us with dinner upon our late arrival the first night, and stopped by to check on us and bring us fruit from her trees a couple of times. Three nights were truly not enough and I can't wait to go back and stay again!

Stay Here!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the villa for three nights. In total there were eight of us, seven adults and an infant.

The highlights: The villa is absolutely gorgeous, it is exactly what I would imagine a Sicilian villa to be. It is very well-located for a Sicilian adventure - with Taormina, Catania, vineyards, and Mt. Etna all close by. We also enjoyed exploring the small towns up the mountain nearby. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well-stocked with equipment to cook, there was ample space in the living room to hang out in (and a fireplace). And the view! From the front lawn you can see out over the town of Piedimonte Etneo and the sea.

However, what really made the stay for me was the host, Agata. After a night of traveling from New York, she met us at the villa with a lunch of pizza and other foods. And as we were celebrating my parent's wedding anniversary, she had even baked them a cake and left us a bottle of prosecco to toast with! She is extremely friendly and was helpful with recommendations of things to do and was responsive to our questions.

I highly recommend this villa. You will be glad you stayed here, I know we were! We stayed in three apartments/villas on this trip and this one was hands down the best by far.

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.

Car: recommended

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.
