About Enrico

Fond of nature, always green and lush around my structures, careful on details in interior and exterior, lover of ancient history, traditions and rich culture of this part of Sicily

Why Enrico chose Caronia

The villa is new and is part of a private complex that belongs to our family for generations. it's a paradise for children who can play in various ways and especially for their parents who can enjoy their vacation with tranquility.

The villa is located close to the ancient village of Caronia (the part on the seaside), which was founded by the Greeks (453 BC) and was called 'Kale akte' or 'Beautiful coast', then was Roman and Arabic with the name of Karuniah. Some ruins are still visible in the vicinity of the villa within the estate.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is in a unique position, its singularity makes it a popular destination of actors and artists (ref. Souvenir photos); it's close to the sea and with a splendid view of the Aeolian Islands, is very fresh and surrounded by the protected natural park of the Nebrodi's mountains; with its sounds, colors and smells, this predominant nature can evoke in guests suggestive and engaging feelings

Great Location and Amenities

  • 4 of 5

The villa is in a great location with easy access to a train service that we used to go to Palermo with ease. There is a nice town (Cefalu) within about a 30-40 minute drive with a lovely beach.

We had mostly nice weather on our stay in October but wouldn't want to have come later in the year.

The kitchen was more than sufficient for the four of us that stayed in the villa and the location was really nice too. There are a couple of mini-markets in the town, plus a bakery and a few restaraunts/cafes. The beach is about a 5-10 minute walk from the villa and the sea was lovely and clear when we were there. The beach was pebbly rather than sandy (as are most in this part of Sicily) but the beach in Cefalu was excellent and close enough that we went a few times during our week long visit.

We liked everything about...

  • 4 of 5

We liked everything about the property - the garden, the view, the atmosphere. Everything very close to nature. There is a vary nice bar near the beach with free Wi-Fi - for those who want to be closer to the world:) There small nice shops in the village and big supermarkets in close neighbowhood. But to get to the beach it's better to use the car (though it is not far away) because part of the wat goes near the road.

Enrico nos proporciono una estancia perfecta para una Sicilia maravillosa

  • 5 of 5

Gracias Enrico por habernos ayudado a tener unas vacaciones idilicas en Sicilia.Nos encanto tu casa,el entorno rural,la tranquilidad ,el ambiente cordial y cercano que creas desde el primer momento...ya desde nuestra llegada nos trataste como si fueramos amigos desde hace años,demuestras disponibilidad y entusiasmo ,pero a la vez eres discreto y sabes mantener la independencia de tus inquilinos...ya la primera mañana conquistaste nuestros corazones cuando nos trajiste el desayuno!!como buen anfitrion nos aconsejaste qué ver en esa zona,dónde comer,dónde comprar..y todo cumplió nuestras espectativas.La unica pena fue que mi hijo de 7años se hubiera quedado eternamente a jugar con el tuyo!!Llegamos como inquilinos y nos despedimos como amigos..En resumen,recomiendo tu casa y me encantaria volver en otra ocasion,porque tu casa es perfecta ,y tu (y tu familia)sois unos anfitriones inmejorabes

Owner's Response: Ho tante volte ospiti eccezionali, ma Marta ed i suoi hanno lasciato un segno profondo nel mio cuore, per la loro educazione, per il rispetto assoluto, per i loro sorrisi, per il loro stile ... il mio piacere più grande? quello di averli vicini al risveglio la mattina, qualche volta pensare alla loro colazione, chiaccherare un pò di tutto ... mi auguro di averli mille volte ancora, un grande bacio a tutti

Mer et montagne.

  • 5 of 5

Une superbe semaine pour commencer nos vacances en Sicile. La vue est merveilleuse et les alentours sont un enchantement.

Nous avons eu un peu de mal à trouver la villa et Enrico le premier jour (pas de signalisation et boite vocale sur le portable) mais cela s'est vite arrangé avec la disponibilité et la bonne volonté d'Enrico, toujours présent mais pas envahissant.

Piscine petite quand il y a beaucoup de monde mais très agréable parmi la végétation.

Supermarchés à San Stefano di Camastra, pizzeria super agréable (lungomare) à Marina di Caronia, en bord de mer, comme son nom l'indique et l'on peut visiter les villes de bord de mer ainsi que des villages de montagne (Tusa, Castelbuono...)

Bref, un magnifique séjour!

Super vakantie

  • 5 of 5

Prachtige locatie, voor ons was alles te bereiken met trein, bus, fiets en de persoonlijke haalservice van Enrico voor de zware boodschappen. Een auto is makkelijk,...maar niet noodzakelijk

Perfect voor mensen en gezinnen met kinderen die genieten van mooie uitzichten, 2 zwembaden, een gezellig dorpje waarin alles voorhanden is en de sfeer en bevolking gezellig en gemoedelijk is.

Een grotere plaats met meer winkels is santo stefano di Camastra, prima te bereiken op 8 km afstand, ook met openbaar vervoer goed te bereiken.

Dit is handig,..maar Enrico, Gabriella, de kinderen en la mamma di Enrico hebben onze vakantie tot een echte vakantie gemaakt en een heel speciaal plekje in ons hart gekregen....we kwamen daar op een heel droevig moment voor deze familie en als ik dan bedenk hoeveel moeite ze voor ons hebben gedaan: "bravo" (kunnen veel mensen nog van leren)

Dit wil niet zeggen dat Enrico op de voorgrond staat, Enrico is net als een goede butler, je ziet hem niet,.. totdat je hem nodig hebt. Veel mensen hebben heimwee naar huis,..wij zitten nu thuis en hebben heimwee naar jullie...kan niet wachten tot de volgende keer. Ben al aan het sparen!!!

Heel veel liefs voor iedereen.

Wij eten weer patat met mayonaise,..maar tellen de maanden dat we weer komen; "we hebben nog iemand pizza en ijs beloofd🤗?

Misschien tot volgend jaar en in ieder geval tot volgend jaar,..we kunnen niet wachten!!!

Grazie cientomille,

Super salute

Lovely house with breathtaking view

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect week in the villa. We started every day with breakfast on the terrace with sea view. Couldn't be better.

The house itself has good beds and a nice, large table for dining. It was nice.

But what made this vacation even better was Enrico. He made our week one to remember with his warm personality. Our 7 yr old daughter got along great with his son. We will definitely return to Sicily, and when we do, we will return to Enrico and his beautiful house.

Take the motorway from Palermo to Messina, exit at S. Stefano di Camastra (city of ceramics) and continue for 10 km. until the following village (Marina di Caronia).

Otherwise, take the motorway from Catania airport to Messina and then in the direction of Palermo, exit at S. Agata di Militello (km.107) and continue in the same direction for about 15 km. (s.s.113) to Marina di Caronia.

Regional cuisine restaurant, summer program of music, festivals, fish and fish products for sale, sea ​​easily accessible and usable with music at the beach, possibility of nautical tourism, all without the exasperated confusion of big tourist centers.
