About the property

Double Villa, direct access to the beach, with 4 bedrooms 12 beds each property

'Just 2 hours from the airport in Catania. An easy ride on the motorway. The perfect place for a quiet and peaceful vacation, placed at the end of a row of houses. The last house before the beach. Very suitable for families with children. Its just a short walk in flipflops to take a morning dip in the ocean on your very own 'private' mediterranean beach. If you want to get around its a great base for excursions to Milazzo, Messina, Taormina, the Eolian Islands, Mount Etna, majestic forested mountains with pittoresqe villages, Tindari Monastery, Tindari bay at Marinello, and much much more. Its a semidetached house. The house has a garden facing the beach, and there is a nice view from the balconies. You can see the majecstic and impressive Tindari Monastery and the closest of the Eolian Islands, Volcano. In the back there is a cosy backyard with trees and flowers. A great place to have your meals. There is a brick barbeque and pizza oven and an enclosed shower area so that you dont need to drag all the sand into the house when you get back from the beach. The neighbouring farmer comes by regularly to offer his own produce (vegetables, cheese, sausages, vine and olive oil) out of the back of his car. The Ice Cream man also comes calling.The Hosts will do all they can to help you get a memorable vacation.( from a review)

This fine, spacious, comfortable and well furnished villa is located in a quiet area in the northern part of Sicily in the bay of Tindari, directly on the Tyrrhenian Sea.

The villa is made unique by the surrounding natural scenario that provides a magic atmosphere. Being situated on the beach it allows from its balconies a breathtaking view of the AEOLIAN ISLANDS, Tyndaris,and Cape Milazzo. You can also admire all around the mountains, the eucalyptus trees, the lemon gardens..

The villa offers a wide garden with palmtrees where to spend peaceful moments, also in summer, hearing the sounds of the waves.It's an excellent base to explore the Eastern part of Sicily,as it lies halfway between Taormina and Cefalù.

--Details about the house: The Villa is divided in two semi-detached houses with separate entrances.They are exactly the same except for the furnishing, so it is also reccomanded for two families or groups up to 26 people. Each house is on three levels. Entering the front door,on the right , there is the living area( sitting and dining )with access to the outside veranda on a wide beautiful garden with garden furniture, close to the beach. On the left, a big and fully equipped kitchen gives access to a spacious back garden equipped with two dining tables, a barbecue, a stone oven and an external shower. Some stairs take you to the first floor which is home of three queen bedrooms, two bathrooms with showers and two balconies to enjoy charming views on the bay and mountains. On the second floor there is a big room with a double bed and three single beds , a terrace for simply spectacular views.

Great villa next to the sea

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful villa with a lovely garden. The great thing about Tindari is that it is just 30 metres from the sea, with just a footpath and a belt of trees separating you from the sandy beach.

We were worried that there would be noise from the motorway and we were also worried about the amount of development on the coast. Would our holiday be affected by blaring noise from some local resort?

In fact, the villa was very peaceful. Road noise was low. We went in August so there were some parties and celebrations. But, generally, there was no problem at all.

The coastal area has seen a lot of development and the local coastal villages, whilst low rise, are not particularly appealing (although not particularly brash) but the area around the villa is fine - it overlooks a lemon orchard and a belt of rather beautiful eucalyptus trees.

The closeness of the motorway is a boon as it means transport links are excellent. And the mountains behind the villa are spectacular. There are plenty of local excursions - including the Aeolian Islands, of course.

The Mianos are excellent landlords. They were extremely responsive to questions or problems and very friendly.

The villa does not have air con and we were there in August. Generally, it is a cool house and, with fans, we did not have a problem with heat. We found the house comfortable and the garden and backyard provided plenty of shade and privacy.

A previous review mentioned rubbish. Well, this is italy, and there is some on the beach (although the beach and the sea felt clean). We simply took out a bin bag and cleared rubbish off the immediate area - this took all of about 15 minutes.

I'd warmly recommend the property to anyone looking to combine a beach holiday with exploring Sicily. We found Sicilians to be friendly, honest and hospitable. The driving isn't that bad either!

a very pleasant stay in a comfortable house with very kind owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in september 2017 in the house in which everything we needed was provided for. Everything you need to cook was there and also enouhd chairs, towels, bedlinnens etc The rooms were large and had comfortable beds. The mosquitos did not bother us since there was a mosquito screen for our bedroom windows!! The sea and beach were just in front of the house. The owners were very kind and helpful. One evening they came to bake pizza's in the woodoven in the garden which were delicious. Fot our children there were speciale sized beds and also toys to play with. We were very happy with our choice and recommand it!!

Wonderfull beach villa, perfect vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent one of our best vacations at Angela's villa. The gorgeous house is located on the northern shore of sicily, less then one minute walk from a wonderfull almost private beach!!

As the house can sleep up to 15 people (in 4 separate bedrooms) it is perfect for a big family or a group of friends. All the facilities youll ever need such as a state of the art kitchen, bbq, bikes, beatiful back yard with a view of the sea..

The villa is in a quiet tourist-free zone, but also within a 7 minute walk from a charming town -Falcone. There you can find pretty much everything you need- great food,groceries, fresh fish and vegetables , resturants, bars, clothing, atm, pharmacy, car rental etc.

If a laid back vacation is what you're after you wont need nothing much then Angela's villa and Falcone. If your more of an adventure seeker you can easily rent a car and be within a driving distance from all of Sicilys attractions- both nature (volcanos/waterfalls) or urban (catania, palermo).

Angela and her husband were wonderful hosts- very attentive, always available for any questions or help needed (both with the house and other arrangements such as tours/taxi/information)

To sum up- 5 star vacation!! Wonderful and relaxing, perfect get away- will be back for sure!!

Meraviglioso soggiorno in una casa stupenda

  • 5 of 5

E' la casa che sognavamo da bambini grande accogliente a 50 metri dal mare . Immersa nel verde e nel silenzio, l'unico suono che si percepisce è quello del fruscio delle onde che sbattono sulla battigia e il fischiettio degli uccellini che accompagnano il tuo risveglio la mattina . Posizione strategica per una vacanza tranquilla ma allo stesso tempo movimentata, vicinissima a posti come la baia del Tindari , Patti , Gioiosa, Capo d'orlando, Milazzo e soprattutto le Isole Eolie .

La villa è bifamiliare ma le case sono totalmente indipendenti ed hanno un ingresso comune da una parte e due ingressi del tutto indipendenti dalla parte del mare (contrariamente a quanto ho letto in una recensione precedente). Inoltre sono disponibili aree esterne alla casa ( da una parte e dall'altra ) per pranzare e rilassarsi . I proprietari? due persone stupende ! Sempre gentili e disponibili , un giorno sono venuti a trovarci per prepararci una pizza fatta da loro , una bontà ...da non credere!

Grazie Angela e Tanino ci rivedremo presto.

Nous avons passé de très belles vacances

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons loué leur maison l’année dernière en octobre pour les vacances de la toussaint. Je voulais mettre un commentaire en rentrant et puis le temps passe … mais j’y tiens ! Donc je le fais maintenant pour remercier Angela et Gaetano.

Malgré que notre objectif fût de visiter l’Etna, nous avons choisi de séjourner plus au nord en face du Stromboli et je ne regrette pas ce choix.

La villa est au bord de la mer et la plage est très accessible et pas mal du tout ! Les photos sont plus qu’authentique. La maison est confortable et il y a largement la place pour une grande famille. J’ai beaucoup apprécié la cours dehors ou on peut manger et passer la soirée. Les enfants ont beaucoup apprécié.

C’est un réel plaisir de se réveiller le matin et sortir voir la mer de votre balcon.

Angela et Gaetano sont d’une grande gentillesse et leur hospitalité est inoubliable.

The villa is set in the Bay of Tindari that deserves a special mention, both as archaeological, cultural and bathing place. Here the tourist can enjoy a beautiful holiday, visit the greek-roman archeological site of Monte Tindari, dive in the beautiful and blue sea of the Bay of Tindari, now a nature reserve, visit the nearby villages, walk around, taste the sicilian food in the local restaurants and of course visit many important historical places in the east part of Sicily. Just a short walk you can easily reach the nearby port of Portorosa( 500 metres), where daily departure to Eolian Islands are also possible.
