Lovely villa in a stunning, quiet, location

  • 5 of 5

The villa is lovely and has real character. There are 3 big bedrooms (shared A/C), a big and elegant living room, and a (very) fully-equipped kitchen. Free Wifi was included, There are big outdoor terraces, off-street parking, garden and a great cliff-edge private swimming pool. About 100 steps down to a small pebble beach. The whole place is really well thought out and fantastic for a holiday rental for a family.

And, not least, stunning views across the bay to Catania and Mt Etna - glorious to wake up to.

In terns of things to improve on, there really isn't much. An A/C unit in each bedroom would be ideal (it was a very hot week when we were there), and a shower in the second bathroom would also be great. Otherwise it's pretty close to perfect.

The location is a quiet village. There's one fairly basic bar/restaurant; no shops. The nearest supermarkets are in Lentini, about 20 km away. Syracuse and Catania are both a 20-30 minute drive away, with Mt Etna, Taormina, water parks, theme parks etc within 60-90 mins.

But the best thing of all was the welcome and support - the owners provided a fantastic (complementary) welcome meal, with lots of Sicilian delicacies. The kitchen was really well-stocked with basics. The pool and the garden were looked after daily and any issues were dealt with really quickly. The house has lots of guide books to the local attractions, in multiple languages. We couldn't recommend the service more highly

A perfect villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this absolutely gorgeous villa and I cannot praise it too highly! Everything, from our arrival and very warm welcome by Maria, her fabulous cooking, right through to the last day, where we were very generously allowed to stay on in the house as our flight was late in the afternoon, was perfect. The location is simply stunning - with a direct view of Etna across the bay and the twinkling lights of Catania. The house is beautifully furnished with lots of cosy corners for sitting; beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well-equipped, the pool exceedingly inviting, the garden beautifully planted and everything was spotlessly clean. This is possibly one of the nicest houses we have stayed in - and we have travelled extensively. Maria and Isabella were the perfect hosts, responding immediately to the two questions we had. Thank you for letting us use your beautiful house! We can't wait to return.

Car: necessary

Villa Iacaranda is situated in the "Costa Saracena", a village which belongs to the provincial territory of Syracuse and the communal territory of Augusta (from where is 10 kilometers distant). For all those who come from Catania, the villa is easily reachable through the highway CT-SR until "Lentini" and then the "Strada Statale 114" (direction Syracuse) where, after two kilometers, you will see an Esso petrol station on the right . Just opposite, on the other side of the Strada Statale, you will find then the entrance of "Costa Saracena" village.

It is recommended that children are constantly supervised by an adult during the stay at the villa. Access to private beach is at your own risk because the staircase is very steep. Other beaches are accessible easily on foot, inside the residence."
