EXTRA INFORMATION ABOUT THE VILLA: This exclusive former aristocratic property is a recently renovated Villa that hosted a winery. Nowadays, the property is immersed in a 10,000 square-metre citrus grove and plant nursery. Catania has the most hours of sunshine of ANY city in Europe, making our Villa an ideal destination all year, where to enjoy lovely Spring, Summer and Autumn days. Located near Riposto, the property is 30 minutes drive from Taormina and Catania and only 1 km from a lovely pebble beach. The property exclusively available to the renters is endowed with a private swimming pool, a garden, a beautiful terrace, 4 big en suite bedrooms and sea-facing kitchen and living room.
The tall lofty trees provide plenty of shade for relaxing in on hot days or you can cool off in the swimming pool if you prefer. By the pool there's a dressing room and bathroom too. Another corner of the garden houses a large stone patio with dining table, table tennis, BBQ and a fridge. An external staircase leads to the first floor where the spacious interior consists of a kitchen, dining table and a sofa corner with comfy couches and armchairs and an adjoining terrace with great views of the sea and Etna beyond, a gazebo and dining table. Three double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and a small toilet are on this floor too. A spiral staircase leads up to a loft, where there's a large child-friendly bedroom with three single beds and a bathroom. On the ground floor – with a separate entrance – are the housekeeper's apartments who take care of the garden and can provide 24/7 assistance in case of need. Next to these are the storerooms and the old winery ("palmento")- no longer in use, it serves as a "private museum" on the past of Sicily.
The villa is exclusively to the usage of the renters, including all its premises (the garden, the swimming pool, the patio, the terrace and all the internal area).
We will be available to give tips on the area, trips and other services.
The house is easily accessible from the main Sicilian highway (Messina-Catania), exit Giarre or Acireale. It is an approx. 30 minutes drive to Taormina, Catania, Mt. Etna and not far from other popular destinations including Acitrezza, Alcantara, Aeolian Islands' departure port, Agrigento, Siracusa, Ragusa, and the paradisiac beaches of the South East of Sicily.
The villa is available for rental on a weekly basis.
