Lovely home in beautiful shady gardens with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Definitely not your average holiday villa. Set in lovely shady gardens with views to the coast and Etna, this was the perfect base to relax between expeditions.

A charming villa in idyllic gardens

  • 5 of 5

Initially drawn to this villa by its beautiful gardens, we found them even more idyllic than the photos suggest. The pool, with its panoramic views to sparkling blue seas in one direction and towards a gently fuming Mount Etna in the other, is a perfect place to relax with sunny and shady spots throughout the day. Exploring the garden is a joy, with its many hidden corners, lush planting, huge and well-equipped eating and cooking area and majestic old pine trees. The villa, tucked under a canopy of greenery, is lovingly restored, comfortable and equipped with all the modern conveniences one could need for a family holiday. The location is ideal; a few minutes' walk from local shops and restaurants; within comfortable driving distance of shingly and rocky beaches to the east and north, and beautiful sandy beaches to the south; within easy exploring distance of the cities of Catania and Syracuse, hilltop towns such as Noto and, of course, Mount Etna.

Our hosts, Giancarlo and Alessandra, were delightful; thoughtful in providing a wealth of useful information in advance of our holiday, very kind and accommodating when our in-bound flight was delayed, and a pleasure to meet.

It is clear that this is a much-loved family holiday home. We are so fortunate to have had the chance to spend our holiday here and would recommend it without hesitation.

Maison magnifique et jardin luxuriant avec un panorama exceptionnel qui s'étend de la mer à l'Etna

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons séjourné en famille avec 4 enfants, dont deux adolescents, dans cette très belle maison bien entretenue et très pratique au quotidien. Le jardin est grand avec différents endroits où s'attabler et se reposer à l'ombre ou au soleil après une journée de visite. La vue offre un panorama exceptionnel entre le mont enneigé de l'Etna (en avril) et la mer qui s'étend en contre-bas bordée par les villes de Valverde et Acireale. La piscine est magnifique et est une invitation à la farniente. Mais le plus agréable a été l'accueil chaleureux que nous avons reçu des propriétaires, Giancarlo et Alessandra. Ils ont été particulièrement prévenants et plein de très belles attentions pour nos enfants et nous-même. De retour à Paris, nous ne souhaitons qu'une chose c'est de retourner dans ce bel endroit qu'est la Sicile.

Ein Paradies

  • 5 of 5

Der paradiesische Garten mit Blick auf Meer und Ätna und die liebevoll eingerichtete Villa sind einfach traumhaft. Die Bilder können gar nicht wiedergeben, wie schön und groß der Garten ist, mit altem Baumbestand, Oleander, Palmen, Brunnen mit Goldfischen, vielen verschlungenen Wegen, großer Terasse...

Der Inhaber Giancarlo ist ein fanstastischer Gastgeber: freundlich, unkompliziert, immer ansprechbar (mobil/Whatsapp) und hat viele tolle Empfehlungen und Tipps für den Aufenthalt bereit.

Wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt.
