Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Letojanni - Sailor house sea view

1 Bedroom, 2 bathroom, independent house, 4 sleeps, floor area 74m²

The Sailor's House, located in Letojanni, in the old fisherman's village near Taormina (only 5km) on the Sicilian Ionian Coast, only 10m from the seaside. An independent house set on 74 square meters, dated back to the 1780, while maintaining the characteristics of that period though being entirely restored. The walls of the perimeter have remained intact and parts of the pavements are made out of local baked clay paving stones. The two-storey house is accessible by a nice alley. In the entrance, that separates the two storeys, there is a hall that has maintained the characteristics and the flavour of that period, a separate kitchen, an air-conditioned living room and a bathroom with shower Returning to the hall, one can access the first floor’s small balcony whit chairs and table by an old stairway made out of stone. On that floor there is an air-conditioned bedroom with sea-view and double bed, and a bathroom with shower.

The Picciolo Golf Club is the first golf course constructed in Sicily. It was designed, in the 1989, by Luigi Rota Caremoli. The beautiful 18 holes are among oaks, hazels and vineyards.

How to get there: From the motorway A-18 Catania-Messina take the Fiumefreddo di Sicilia exit; then follow the S.S. 120 direction: Piedimonte Etneo, Linguaglossa, Randazzo. After 800 mts from the turning for Castiglione di Sicilia, on the left there are 2 big pine trees.

A Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to explore the Northeastern side of Sicily.

We were met by the lovely Carmen who saw to it that we had great time with spot on recommendations for places to eat and shop for food and drink.

It was easy to explore Taormina and the Mt. Etna area without the pressure of tour buses.

You could walk along the Sea which was right down the street. The apartment was great with artistic touches that enhanced our experience. We plan to go back next year and are recommending this place to family and friends.

Our visit to Sicily

  • 4 of 5

The sailor house was very comfortable, well appointed and spacious. August is probably not the best time of year to visit Sicily but the air conditioning made things very pleasant especially at night.

Carmen was very welcoming and chilling out on the beach, 4 minutes away made the holiday restful. We didn't choose to go far afield, apart from Taormina but there are a lot of places to visit within close proximity if we had wanted to.Nice local restaurants, the ones recommended by Carmen were the best.

Wonderful house by the sea!

  • 5 of 5

Carmen was an incredible hostess and the house was fantastic. We ended up forgoing restaurants and used kitchen and balcony with small table for most meals. The amazing ingredients at the market made long dinners at home such a treat. The location is fantastic - there's no need for a car unless you intend to drive around to leave Letojanni. Getting on foot to nearby villages is very treacherous, but there is a bus system (that we did not use). Carmen was the best. When she heard how excited I was about cherries being in season, she told me she would bring us fresh cherries from her yard. They were the best I've ever eaten!

Comfortable, atmospheric and great location

  • 5 of 5

The little house was perfect for us, a very comfortable couch to lounge on downstairs in the well lit 'basement' kitchen/living room, always a comfortable temperature and quiet due to the thick old walls. A spacious and atmospheric bedroom, plenty of storage space. Cleverly retains the original character of the fisherman's cottage but with quirky and welcoming modern decoration. Very nice to have bathrooms up and downstairs. Good quality bedlinen and towels, beach mats, umbrella and towels a very nice touch. Everything good quality and very clean. A very clever conversion on the first floor means that with both the windows open, there is a balcony, always light and with a little sea view, a lovely relaxing spot for morning coffee or evening wine. The sea is only a few seconds away around the corner, and you can drink your coffee or glass of wine there too, sitting on the wall and looking at the lovely view; only fishermen and the odd sunbather make it to this end of the beach, so it feels very peaceful. Carmen herself made the stay very easy from the start, kindly picking us up and dropping us back at the station, leaving us coffee and milk, beautiful strawberries, and a sack of gorgeous oranges from her garden when we left (and we got them back on the aircraft!) She generously offered us lifts to local beauty spots and provided great advice on where to eat (Carpe Diem), and left us with guides and timetables. The house is perfectly located at the very end of the sea front road which meant a lovely walk of 10 min any time we wanted to go to the local grocery shops (full of helpful and friendly locals and delicious Sicilian food) or for gelato or meals. Over the week, we really got to learn the rhythm of the local people, recognising the same old chaps at the cafe at 5.45pm, the children out with parents for gelato in the early evening, families dining at 9pm, and we have many lovely photos to remind us of the fantastic moonscapes over the sea. So easy to get around, you don't need a car; bus to Taormina (take in the stunning cliff views) trains to Syracuse, Santa Teresa (seafood), Catania, tour of Etna booked in Letojanni. This stay really exceeded our expectations and we would definitely stay there again if we return to beautiful Sicily. Thank you Carmen!

Perfect place

  • 4 of 5

We had a perfect holiday in the Sailor House. Carmen, the owner, was very friendly and provided us with information about what to do and she told us about the best places to eat. The house is really perfect. It has everyting you need for a relaxing holiday. We also liked the interior of the house very much. It is so nicely furnished. We enjoyed the fact that the beach is so close from the house. Only 30 meters! Letojanni is also a very nice town. We highly recommend Carmens Sailor House! Thank you Carmen for your hospitality.

The holiday house is located in Letojanni, in the old fisherman's village near Taormina on the Sicilian Ionian Coast.

Only 20 meters from the beach ,Letojanni is famous for its beauty sea and beaches, where you can find both: sand and gravel. A tourist can choose between free beaches and private shores, where is possible to find many bars, restaurants, attractions for children and adults, association for diving lessons and sea excursions. For people who are deeply in love with beach there are many opportunities to come back in the evening with a lot of activities: as having dinner or dancing (why not on the seashore whit the caress of a wave?). Inland: large number of night clubs in the area. Thanks to the mild climate, going to the beach you don't need to wait for summer: in the Letojanni the sun shines 350 day a year. Letojanni is in ideal geographical position for visit: Siracus, Agrigento, Palermo, Selinunte, Enna ,Montain Etna, Alcantara Falls.

Golf: The Picciolo Golf Club is the first golf course constructed in Sicily. It was designed, in the 1989, by Luigi Rota Caremoli. The beautiful 18 holes are among oaks, hazels and vineyards.

How to get there: From the motorway A-18 Catania-Messina take the Fiumefreddo di Sicilia exit; then follow the S.S. 120 direction: Piedimonte Etneo, Linguaglossa, Randazzo. After 800 mts from the turning for Castiglione di Sicilia, on the left there are 2 big pine trees.

From house to Golf Club Picciolo 30 km total

Ski: It is possible to ski in February on Mountain Etna
