At ground floor there are the salon, with a big a traditional fireplace, a private chapel, a veranda and a winter garden, two bathrooms and a professional kitchen.

At first floor there are four double bedrooms, one bedroom with two single beds, three bathrooms, and a laundry with washing machine. A large lounge with kitchen is equipped with all appliances and with a Satellite Flat Screen TV.

All the rooms are furnished in a perfect classic style and featuring air conditioning and central heathing: the furnishings are composed from a perfect mix among furnitures handmade from local artisans, old and modern furnitures in local style.

From the spectacular terrace at first floor (100 square meters), the promontory of Etna can be fully admired, especially in lava eruption periods.

Very luxurious, spacious and clean.

  • 5 of 5

we spent a week in luxury, the villa itself is huge with very well looked after gardens surrounding it.

A short walk to the pool through a huge orangery is very pleasant. The pool was clean and a relief from the heat, with beautiful plants and flowers palm trees surrounding it.

The gardener was very helpful, spoke pretty good English too.

The bedrooms were well maintained and have air conditioning, this was essential for sleeping. The kitchen was well equipped with plenty of seating. I would go back for sure and recommend this place easily.

A beautiful stay in Sicily

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week at this beautiful and charming place only a half an hour drive from the airport of Catania.

The Villa and the fantastic garden were very much impressive. We have not seen such an extraordinary property before. The house was very clean and located in an amazing surrounding. The kitchen was very big and good furnitured. As we love to cook by ourselfes, this was a real plus.

The garden including a very nice swimming pool was professionally maintained with a lot of love for details.

We were even provided with a contact person offering a 24 hour help in case of any questions or needs. This as well made us feel very welcome and in really good hands. Thank you Nunzio!!

Shopping possibilities are within a couple of minutes drive.

For sure if possible we would like to come back to this marvellous place :-)

"Romantica e Chic"

  • 5 of 5

Premesso di essere capitata quasi per caso e per la prima volta in questa splendida location, dovendo lavorare in zona tra Catania e Messina. Il posto è incantevole e l'ambientazione di classe.

Un'oasi di pace e tranquillità

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo avuto la fortuna di essere i primi ospiti di questa Villa, essendo questo il primo anno di attività. La villa è inserita in un bellissimo parco di più di due ettari, con una vegetazione rigogliosissima e curato quotidianamente dalla proprietaria e da un giardiniere. E' un'oasi verde con un microclima particolare (a luglio la sera faceva addirittura fresco!).

Le stanze sono molto belle e praticamente nuove, non essendo mai state abitate (la villa padronale è infatti a fianco di quella che si affitta).

Speriamo di poterci ritornare presto!

Traumhafte Villa am Fuß des Ätna

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten einen wunderbaren Urlaub in der Villa Solaria. Das Anwesen eignet sich vorzüglich für einen entspannten Familienurlaub auch im größeren Kreis aufgrund der Weitläufigkeit der schönen Parkanlage mit sehr gepflegtem Poolbereich. Die Innenausstattung ist ebenfalls sehr schön und klassisch gehalten. Auch der ambitionierte Hobbykoch kann sich entfalten und die Einkäufe der regionalen Märkte bestens in der großzugig geschnittenen und gut ausgestatteten Küche verarbeiten. Die Terrasse bietet einen tollen Blick auf den Ätna. Die Vermieter sind ausgesprochen nett und hilfsbereit.

Vi ringraziamo tanto per il splendido soggiorno nella vostra casa e siamo contenti di tornare nel anno prossimo!

Familie Löwe
