Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Praiola - Casale Mare Praiola

Surrounded by the lush Sicilian vegetation, sea view and access to the beach

Proudly surveying its lemon grove from a stunning and perfectly peaceful setting on the coast. It would be difficult to ask for a more delightful setting. A rural road brings you to this recently renovated ‘casale’, which is surrounded by the bright green of the wild Sicilian vegetation, including lemon trees and eucalyptus trees. A private path leads directly to the beach (50 meter).

The country house is separated in two independent apartments: Casa Limone e Casa Mandarino. Both apartments have there own terrace with privacy. Casa Limone has unique views from its two big terraces. Mandarino has a smaller terrace and less views.

The house is situated on a volcanic cliff between Acireale and Praiola, and has a sweeping view over the sea, the beach and the coast with Taormina on the horizon. A private path leads directly to the beach (50 meter). Close to Casa Limone are some other holiday homes.

The farmhouse is separated in two independent apartments that can be rented together: Casa Limone and Casa Mandarino.

Lovely old country house

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. House is very comfortable, clean and well equipped (we rented both units Casa Limone and Casa Mandarino). The view is fantastic and the patios large so you can move around to avoid sun and wind. The care taker Mr. Rosario was great and went out of his way to help us get settled in the first day, he even guided us on his motorcycle to the nearest shops and to a supermarket which was 20 minutes away. The only slightly negative aspect, and why I am giving this 4 out of 5 stars, is the long drive in to the house on a very rough country lane.

A lovely secluded property: strongly recommended

  • 5 of 5

You have to drive for maybe half a kilometre through a lemon grove to reach this house, with views of Etna behind you. Delightful. But you must have a car.

The house itself is basic; if you want luxury, then probably look elsewhere. But it is clean and well-maintained, and was just right for us (two adults, two teenagers). We very much enjoyed breakfast on the balcony overlooking the sea - you have a good view along the coast perhaps as far as Taormina. You can get down to the beach very easily. The beach itself is rocky and good for an evening stroll, but we didn't swim.

The owner was extremely kind and helpful, even though we arrived four hours late.

The local village (about 10 minutes drive) has nice shops, including a bakery and fruit/veg shop, and there is a huge supermarket about 15/20 minutes drive away. After the first day, we just used the local shops, with very friendly staff.

We could happily have relaxed in the property for most of the week, but instead we made various excursions to temples and volcanoes.

In all, a thoroughly enjoyable holiday.

Owner's Response: Thank you and yes: the view along the coast is as far as Taormina. And sometimes you can see even the coast of Calabria, in front.

Juillet 2011 - Famille de 5 personnes

  • 4 of 5

Très beau séjour à la Casa Limone.

La Casa Limone est bien située pour profiter de la mer et du calme, ce que nous avons fait. Très belle vue sur la mer et sur l'Etna (éruption visible depuis la terrasse).

La maison est agréable, bien équipée et bien entretenue.

Pour ces vacances, nous recherchions surtout le repos dans un bel endroit, ce qui a été pleinement réussi.

Attention : la maison est isolée, l'accès en voiture un peu difficile, par des chemins agricoles parmis les citronniers, après avoir franchi un portail verrouillé. Eloignée des commerces. A déconseiller à ceux qui veulent aller faire leurs courses à pied et aux familles qui ont des adolescents qui souhaitent être autonomes.

Een fijne villa op een rustige locatie

  • 5 of 5

Een keurig verzorgde villa op een bijzondere locatie, gelegen direkt aan de kust . Helaas hadden we zeer matig weer en hebben we niet uitbundig kunnen genieten van de unieke terrassen. Gelukkig was er rust en comfort om heerlijk een boek te lezen. Uitstekende bedden en gezellig ingericht. Vanuit deze locatie hebben we Catania en Aceriale bezocht en ondanks het matige weer zeer genoeglijke dagen gehad.

Bon séjour, nice stay a la Casa Mandarino

  • 4 of 5

Acceuil très chaleureux et sympathique (pas vraiment facile à trouver-l'endroit est effectivement retiré- mais nous y avons été très bien aidé), maison propre et plutôt bien équipée dans l'ensemble, petite plage (attention galets) à 3 minutes. Seul petit bémol, une servitude de passage qui peut amoindrir la tranquillité du lieu, surtout pour Casa Mandarino. Base idéale pour visiter l 'Etna ou Taormina à moins d'une heure de route, Acireale, Riposto sont des petites villes sympa toutes proches sans trop de touristes, mention spéciale pour le village Torre Archifari le soir, sans touristes également, pour boire un pot ou manger simplement en bord de mer en compagnie de vrais Siciliens.

Magasins également à 15 mn.

Une bonne adresse.

Abgelegene Idylle

  • 5 of 5

Das Häuschen liegt wie beschrieben mitten in einer Zitronenidylle und gleichzeitig ist man mit wenigen Schritten direkt am Meer. Die beiden Wohnungen unterscheiden sich sehr voneinander in Punkto Helligkeit und Terrassenzugang. Die Wohnung "mandarino" verfügt nicht über eine Terrasse mit Meerblick und ist möglicherweise an heißen Sommertagen ein guter Rückzugsort. Die Wohnungen sind etwas hellhörig. Das Terrain ist traumhaft, an sonnigen Tagen konnten wir nicht lange genug unter den Zitronen sitzen und das Meeresrauschen genießen. Guter Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge nach Catania (auch mit dem Zug), auf den Ätna und Taormina.

Praiola
Car: necessary

Praiola is an excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily. The place lies halfway between Catania and Taormina and just seven kilometres from Acireale (a pretty little city, built on a plateau of lava, that is known for its Baroque churches). Gardini Naxos, a seaside resort with beautiful sandy beaches, is just 20 kilometres from Praiola. Beside it we find Taormina ‘the pearl of the Mediterranean’ and the most exclusive seaside resort in Sicily. Its ancient Greek theatre is world famous for its extraordinary panoramic views. Santa Maria la Scala and Aci Trezza are pleasant seaside villages near Praiola. In the village Santa Tecla, a few kilometres from Praiola, is the renown, but quiet cheap, fish restaurant “Da Lorenzo”. 2 km from Casa Praiola is the big supermarket 'Ciemme'. Also 2 km from the house is Carubba, a town, with several shops and squares.

Other Activities: Escursions to Mount Etna, the biggest volcano of Europa
