Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa with lots of space for relaxing both outdoors and in. Lovely big pool and lots of space for children to play. Recommended guide for Etna was great and we enjoyed a good walk on the volcano. Etnaland also not far away. Would definitely recommend it!

Beautiful clean villa conveniently located

  • 4 of 5

Well appointed and beautifully presented villa on the outskirts of Trecastagni.

Plenty of outdoor spaces to sit and eat either in the shade or in the sun. We had a lovely two weeks stay during September.

The villa is very well equipped and tastefully decorated throughout and the swimming pool was very welcome during the hot weather. The outside barbecue was put to good use most evenings.

A car is recommended and once you get used the narrow one way streets, driving is relatively easy but beware - Sicilian drivers are not the most disciplined! The villa is within walking distance of Trecastagni,although I wouldn't recommend the walk during the heat of the day. It's also conveniently placed for Taormina (about 45 minutes drive) and Syracuse (about 90 minutes drive). Mount Etna is easily accessible at about 45 minutes drive. Try the Etna Nord route via Linguaglossa - it's a very quiet and picturesque route.

Just one observation is that the villa is on a moderately busy road and there is traffic noise; for those who like complete peace and quiet this may not be ideal. Having said that, it did not affect our stay and I wouldn't let this put you off.

This is a beautiful and clean villa and is recommended.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

Elegant villa with lots of charm in a great location for visiting the many sites on the eastern part of Sicily. The villa is conveniently located, about 15 minutes from a large shopping center and within an hour's drive away from many sights.

The villa was clean, spacious and well stocked. Beds were very comfortable. The kitchen and laundry facilities were well equipped. The exterior of the villa was every bit as lovely as the interior. There is plenty of space to sit outside or inside, whether to enjoy a drink or a meal, watch tv or just a quiet corner to read.

Proper wifi was also available.

We really enjoyed our stay in Sicily, and would highly recommend the villa.

Delightful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted to stay in this little oasis and didn't want to leave! The villa is very spacious on 3 floors with high-end fittings and was immaculate inside and out. The owners were prompt with their emails prior to arrival and extremely friendly and helpful during our stay. The villa has a warm relaxing feel to it and is ideally located away from the busy 'tourist traps' whilst being very convenient for all the sites of interest - Catania airport 30 mins, Mt Etna 20 mins, Syracuse 50 mins and Taormina 40 mins etc. There is a supermarket with a huge selection of food etc approx 15 mins away plus local shops incl. a Spar and a wonderful coffee bar with delicious cakes and ice-cream overlooking the square. The fantastic pool was a highlight for our teenage sons, being able to dive into the 3m deep end. The pool is securely fenced and gated though, so parents of young kids can relax. There are several lovely places to sit in the well tended garden which wraps around the villa so you can chose the sun or shade. All the bedrooms have air-conditioning which was very useful with lots of storage and hanging space. There is more than enough room in the villa for 6 people with 2 kitchens, 4 bathrooms and lots of seating. The owner kind & very helpful when our son had an ear infection, organising a doctors appointment and even attending the clinic as a translator!

We would recommend this fabulous villa without hesitation and hope to return ourselves soon. We received a warm & charming welcome and were very impressed with both the villa facilities and the location.

Beautiful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

This villa was everything that we expected and more. Lots of space and beautifully furnished. Nice pool - it is very deep at one end so you need to be careful if you have young children. It is within easy reach of some lovely restaurants. It is also within easy reach of Mount Etna and Taormina by car. The owners are very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this lovely villa.

A dream villa!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this beautiful villa for a week and we had a fantastic time. Since the start all went well and easily with the owner - replies to emails came fast, dialogue was easy because owner's English is perfect and once at the location everything was perfectly explained and organized.

The villa is very clean and decorated with taste. All you can possible need is there, from adaptors to hair dryer. The air-conditioning is of quality and the building itself has thick walls which isolate the heat well. The garden is heaven! The photos of the add don't give justice to the beautifully designed garden, which has tables and chairs arranged in different places so one can enjoy the outside depending whether prefers sun or shade. And for families with small kids, the fenced gate was a relief.

The location of the villa was handy, only half-an-hour drive from the airport and strategically close to interesting cities and towns. Also big supermarkets with wide selection 15-minutes drive away.

Overall, it was a pleasure to stay at this villa and great to meet the extremely friendly owners. I can warmly recommend this place and will definitely return if we visit Sicily again!

The town of Trecastagni is really near Mount Etna and, for sure, is one of the nicest and charming place of the mountain towns area: in fact it’s called “the terrace of Mount Etna”. In Trecastagni you can enjoy a beautiful view of the volcano and, at the same time, a breathtaking view on Catania’s gulf. The town is in a strategic position to reach all main places of oriental Sicily and the best sea places of Catania, Siracusa and Taormina.

In particular, the town of Trecastagni is far from (by car):

- Old town of Catania: 25 min ;

- Mount Etna (at cable car for excursion): 30 min;

- Taormina (famous and elegant town): 45 min;

- Siracusa: 55 min;

- Agrigento (valley of the temples): 1h e 55 min.
