Overview

About the property

Luxe villa, Etna view, private pool, Nicolosi, 12 sleeps, panoramic garden, WiFi

At the foot of the Mompilieri crater and towered by the immensity of the Etna, Villa nel Monte enjoys the tranquility of an ancient and unspoiled landscape, pampered by the luxury of its interior and its private pool.

The home is born of the precious connection of art and knowledge of a father, skilful restorer, and his son, architect with innovative and eco-sustainable ideas. The result is a sophisticated, modern and at the same time profoundly Sicilian villa, ideal for those who are looking for an authentic holiday without renouncing style and comfort.

At 5 minutes walk from the house is Nicolosi, a vibrant village known as the 'Porta dell'Etna' that offers numerous restaurants, shops and sports facilities and is a must for those who wish to explore the largest volcano in Europe. In other words, you will have everything you need and more without ever having to take the car. Also, directly from the villa, a very nice path enriched by fruit trees leads to the top of Mount Mompilieri with a breathtaking view of the Gulf of Catania.

When you are ready to leave Nicolosi and the wonders of Etna, with 20 minutes drive you can reach Catania with its baroque buildings, the ancient fish market, the shopping streets and a fine sandy beach. With just one hour drive, you will find Taormina, a world-class and elegant town, considered by many to be the pearl of the Mediterranean, and Siracusa, a fascinating and timeless town, with a romantic promenade and an ancient Greek theatre that cannot be missed.

You can access Villa nel Monte from a spacious and bright living room with sofa bed, a modern kitchen and access to the terrace and panoramic garden. Upstairs you will find three bedrooms all equipped with windows and air-conditioning. Two bathrooms with shower are one in the living area and the other in the sleeping area. A third bathroom and a fourth bedroom are located in the independent annexe just below the terrace and closer to the pool.

The latter of 9 by 4 meters is completely fenced and open all year round.

Whether you want to enjoy the Sicilian summer from a cooler and more privileged location or dream of skiing in winter on the snow of Mount Etna, Villa nel Monte is without a doubt one of the best holiday homes in this part of Sicily.

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful villa. We were greeted by the wonderful people looking after this place with homemade cake, ice cream and jam (all very tasty). The house is stunning and the grounds well kept, and all the kids and adults enjoyed the pool which had lots of floats and games at our disposal.

By hiring a car you can easily get to the beautiful seaside like Taormina and Syracuse, and also get to mount Etna which was a great experience!

Thank you Toti and Katya and the rest of the gang -we loved our Sicilian holiday!

Massive thanks from all 12 of us!

Ps. The pizza company in Nicolosi that delivers to your door is well worth a try (Good value and great taste)!

Outstanding villa and gardens

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous Sicilian villa! Our family of 6 adults have just spent a wonderful 7 days in Villa nel Monte. The 4 sided gardens with vegetables and fruit bushes open to us were a lovely addition, and we all enjoyed the amazing views of Mount Etna, as well as the special 'hill' just behind the house....and of course many lazy hours in the pool! The villa itself is probably one of the best we have stayed in, with beautiful fixtures and fittings and a real attention to detail by the owners. We were welcomed by a freshly made plum tart with fruit from the garden, and selected some of their wine during our stay as well. The nearby town of Nicolosi is the perfect distance away, just a 5 min walk to the shops and restaurants, and not forgetting the ice cream in the evenings!

Hope to come back again in future years, our thanks to the family of Villa nel Monte.

Good location and beautiful villa!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this beautiful villa and had a lovely time! We were greeted by Toti who gave us a very generous welcome pack and information about the area.

The villa is very stylish and comfortable and the gardens and pool very relaxing.

It’s well placed to walk into Nicolosi for restaurants and to drive to Etna, Taormina and also Syracuse. Would also recommend visiting Catania for the fish market- amazing!

Thank you Toti for looking after us !

Wunderschönes Domizil am Hang des Monti Rossi

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung hält auf jeden Fall was sie verspricht! Wir waren anfangs etwas skeptisch, weil die Fotos der Wohnung fast schon zu schön waren. Aber als wir dort ankamen, wurden wir nicht enttäuscht - im Gegenteil! Die Wohnung war der Hammer! Die Küche ist perfekt ausgestattet, der Wohnbereich ist sehr geräumig und die Bäder wunderschön. Alles ist in einem besonderen Stil dekoriert/möbliert, da Toti, der Sohn der Gastfamilie Schreiner ist und alle Möbel selbst gemacht hat! Apropos Gastfamilie: Die Familie war unglaublich aufmerksam und zuvorkommend! Bei der Ankunft war der Kühlschrank und die Küche schon mit einigen typisch sizilianischen Gastgeschenken ausgestattet (eine kleine Geste mit großer Wirkung!). Dies war allerdings längst nicht alles: draußen war ein vielseitiges Gewürzbeet, sowie eine Obstplantage angelegt, an denen man sich bedienen durfte.

Toti empfahl uns zwei wirklich gute Restaurants in der Umgebung und reservierte uns in einem sogar einen Platz. Giulia, die Tochter der Familie, organisierte für uns einen Ätnatrip und nahm einen Freund, der Guide ist, mit. Die beiden haben das wirklich klasse gemacht und uns einen sehr guten Eindruck über den Vulkan verschafft! Nochmal vielen Dank für den unglaublichen Service!

Da eine Kritik erst dann gut und hilfreich ist, wenn sie auch Verbesserungsvorschläge enthält, möchte ich diese hier hinzufügen mit der Bemerkung, dass es wirklich „Meckern auf hohem Niveau“ ist:

Die Schränke in den oberen drei Zimmern sind recht klein und die Dachschrägen sind nicht optimal. Die zwei Zimmer im Untergeschoss sind nicht direkt mit dem Haus verbunden, sie sind nicht so hell wie die anderen drei Zimmer und der WLAN-Empfang reicht nicht bis dort. Der Fernseher im Wohnzimmer empfängt keine internationalen Sender (dafür hat er Netflix!).

Das ist auch schon alles was man an der Wohnung „aussetzen“ könnte. Wir empfehlen jedem potentiellen Mieter, der im Sommer Sizilien besuchen möchte diese Ferienwohnung, weil sie durch Lage von fast 1000 Metern über dem Meer circa 5 °C kühler als der Rest der Insel ist.

Es war eine wirklich tolle, unkomplizierte und wunderschöne Zeit bei euch und wir kommen gerne wieder! Nochmal vielen Dank für alles!

Een fantastisch mooi en schoon huis met een heerlijk zwembad!

  • 5 of 5

Als je in het huis komt wordt je allervriendelijkst ontvangen door de sleutelbeheerders. Zelfgemaakte taart, pruimen uit eigen tuin, wijn en bier stonden voor ons klaar. Het huis was ruim, schoon met een mooie keuken, het babybedje stond al klaar. De bloemenpracht in de tuin en het zwembad overtroffen onze verwachtingen. We konden op elk moment de sleutelbeheerders bellen en zij gaven ons tips. De eerste dag hebben zij zelfs onze lunch in een restaurant gehaald! Niets dan lof. Ik kan iedereen dit huis aanraden!

Casa perfetta, sotto tutti i punti di vista. Accoglienza eccellente e location deliziosa, di spalle ai monti rossi di Nicolosi (antichi crateri vulcanici). Proprietari cortesi e disponibili. Consigliatissima!!!

Casa nel Monte is strategically located between the sea and the Etna and at 5 minutes walking from all the shops and restaurants of Nicolosi, a cute village bordering the Etna Park appreciated for the quality of the service that it offers and its authentically Sicilian charm.

Catania, with its Baroque historical centre, shopping streets and colourful fish market, is at only 20 minutes drive. The fascinating towns of Taormina and Siracusa are at only 1 hour driving.
