Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Mascali

Very quiet in an excellent environment with a large terrace (120 sq.m)

From Catania take the A18 motorway towards Messina and exit at Fiumefreddo. From there go up to Piedimonte Etneo. Before reaching the village, turn left towards Nunziata and continue for about 800 meters. The house will see it after a sequence of curves, high up on your right. From the entrance gate, take the steep climb flanked by columns. The climb requires a bit of attention because it is narrow with two curves. But come on you will find that it's worth it.

The particularity of this house is not only the landscape, but also the fact of being in the countryside, surrounded by citrus and fruit trees, and at the same time be close to the sea (the beach of Fiumefreddo is a 10 minute drive) that the mountain. Taormina is also accessible via the motorway in about 25 minutes, in 15 minutes you reach the Picciolo Golf Club, golf course of 18 holes, and also the tourist port of Ripon is about 15 minutes. There you can also rent sailboats to continue the holiday exploring the east coast. A Fiumefreddo (5 km) there is also an airfield for hang gliders and microlights and a kart track. We are on the slopes of Etna, and the area is full of hiking, including the ascent to the crater, visit the Alcantara Gorges and many restaurants. Catania also, half an hour of highway, reserves the surprise of a beautiful baroque old town.

A place to enjoy

  • 5 of 5

If you want stainless steel and an infinity pool, this isn't the place for you. If you want stunning views, complete relaxation and lots of different laces to sit and catch a gentle breeze while you read your book, drink your wine or just stare off into the distance, this IS the place for you. The house is charming, clean and very well equipped. The photos don't really do it justice. Pietro was always helpful, friendly and available if you needed him. I would certainly recommend this house to friends. Do go to Taormino. It's worth a couple of visits. And, do go to the Café Cypriene near the Domo in Acireal. Its granitas make even Italian ice cream seem ordinary.

Owner's Response: Susan & Dave are a very nice couple. We had a friendly relationship, exchanging our feelings about how to have a relaxing holiday while profite of a place like Sicily, rich of history, natural beauties and shaped by the culture of 'the good life' (food, pastries, wine etc.) Is always a pleasure having hosts like them, and I recommend all the owners to welcome Susan & Dave at their home.

"A very nice location (Etna - Taormina - sea - Catania) in a quiet environment. The house is a bit old, but all the luxury you wish is available (pool, dishwasher, washingmachine, oven, bbq). Magnificent terrace with a lot of shadow facilities and beautiful views. We enjoyed our stay very much!"

  • 5 of 5

"Maison de famille isolée ayant beaucoup de charme, bien équipée, idéalement située, en hauteur entre Etna et mer, immense terrasse avec panorama exceptionnel de toute la côte jusqu''au Volcan, jardin ombragé (pins, orangers, citronniers) en pente. Grand bassin d''eau très agréable pour se rafraîchir en plein air tout en profitant de la vue.

Accueil très amical du propriétaire qui habite à qq km mais qui est très disponible.

Lieu idéal pour visiter la région, au calme en retrait de l''autoroute qui est toutefois rapidement rejointe en une dizaine de mn. Nous y avons passé d''excellente vacances."

"La maison est au calme, sans voisinage. Elle dispose d''un panorama exceptionnel sur la mer et l''Etna dont on peut profiter depuis les terrasses ombragées ou depuis un balcon filant qui fait le tour de la maison. La proximité de l''autoroute permet de faire des excursions sur toute la côte. Le propriétaire est charmant et trés disponible."
