Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Acireale - Villa Bagolaro

historical villa, 4 bedrooms, terraces, garden, near the sea, wifi

Situated on a stretch of coast between Catania and Taormina, proudly surveying its estate from the crest of a hill is Villa Bagolaro, an 18th Century country house in a stunning and perfectly peaceful setting between the sea and Mount Etna. Indoor and outdoor living combine seamlessly due to the bright and welcoming rooms and their communication with the terraces. It would be difficult to ask for a more delightful setting. The living areas and bedrooms of Villa Bagolaro are all on one floor (the first floor). Villa Bagolaro consists of 4 bedrooms, a bathroom with shower, small tub, bidet and toilet, a large living area with fireplace and a double sofa bed, another living area with a fireplace, a kitchen with wood oven and next to it a dining room with dining table. Outside there is also a terrace with seating, deckchairs, extra toilet (in the laundry room), a second shower and a barbecue. The villa has wifi!

Because of the presence of 2 fireplaces, the house offers a pleasant stay also during the few cold weeks of the short Sicilian winter.

The Area: Villa Bagolaro is an excellent base from which to explore Mount Etna and its surroundings. The villages of Etna, such as Trecastagni, Zafferana Etnea e Randazzo, are famous for their ancient lava flows, the architecture of their seventeenth century churches, their delicious local produce and the hospitality of the villagers. Situated 700 metres above sea level, they are a favourite retreat of the city dwellers who, in summer are in search of cool, fresh air, while in winter are in search of snow for skiing. Few people are aware that Etna is a popular location for skiers in winter. On some glorious days in winter, it’s even possible to ski the frozen slopes in the morning enjoying a wonderful panoramic view of the Mediterranean, and then, the same afternoon, go and sunbathe on the beaches below!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We would like to send a personal letter expressing our gratitude. We had a wonderful stay, and we are most grateful for your servicing. Bagolaro is fantastic: Etna to the West and the Messina Street to the East.

Lovely large old villa in great location.

  • 5 of 5

This lovely big old villa is in a great location and is full of character with its doors/windows on every side of the property and the high ceilings.There's the magnificent views of the dominant, smoking Mount Etna to the rear of the property and views of the sea from the front + the huge gardens with lots of lemon and orange trees surrounding the place. It turned a little chilly at night (Mid-March) but there was a wood burning fire and lots of wood supplied so we made good use of that. The owner,Luigi, was very friendly and helpful and spoke quite good English. We realised we had forgotten our electrical plug adaptors and texted him to ask where we could buy some from as we couldn't find any in the supermarket or shops. He asked how many we needed and said he would bring some over to us(I think he lives about 8 miles away). He duly arrived with 2 adaptors and wouldn't accept payment so we said we'd leave them at the end of our stay, in case someone else had the same issue. Good WiFi too. Excellent drives up Etna, especially the south side. Quite a lot of snow up there but the roads were kept perfectly clear. Also good places to visit was Taormina and Syracusa + a few nice villages around. Good supermarket 5 mins drive away. Also a new cafe had just opened up in the village(Caruba) which did lovely ice cream. Overall a very enjoyable holiday in a lovely place. Recommend.

country house with an unforgettable ambiance

  • 4 of 5

Not the cleanest place, but very large, full of history, high ceilings, Great garden with citrus trees, sea view at the front, etna view at the rear. We were lucky to see an active etna with lava and fire at night and ash particles on the table on the terrace in the morning. It is a Great place to stay a week, it Will stay in your memories because of the age of the house and its special location.

Casa ideale per famiglie

  • 5 of 5

La casa è meravigliosa e ideale per 3 famiglie.

Il signor Luigi e la sua moglie sono molto disponibili e gentili.

Abbiamo passato un ottimo soggiorno, stesso il tempo freddo. La stufa e riscaldatori ci hanno servito bene. L'Etna con neve è ... meraviglioso.

Arrivederci,

torneremo in poco tempo

“Une maison patricienne....comme on en rêve !”

  • 4 of 5

Villa Bagolaro est une vieille dame empreinte de noblesse. Tout autour d'Elle flotte le parfum, l'imprégnation du passé. Elle est nichée dans les agrumes et ses parures sont de volubilis et bougainvilliers. Selon l'endroit d'où vous sortez de la Maison, le paysage est grandiose. Luigi et son épouse qui accueillent leurs "invités" sont très présents également en cas de besoin et donnent de précieux renseignements.

Un endroit privilégié qui a une âme que nous recommandons.

Nous y retournerons avec grand plaisir ..

Une maison patricienne....

  • 4 of 5

Villa Bagolaro est une vieille dame empreinte de noblesse. Tout autour d'Elle flotte le parfum, l'imprégnation du passé. Elle es nichée dans les agrumes et se parures sont de volubilis et bougainvilliers. Selon l'endroit où vous sortez de la Maison, le payasage est grandiose. Bien sûr, la modernité n'est pas sa "tasse de thé" et alors ??? ce serait peut-être la trahir.

Luigi et son épouse sont très présents si besoin et fort accueillants.

Un endroit privilégié qui a une âme et de plus, se trouve idéalement située pour de nombreuses visites.

Nous y retournerons avec grand plaisir .

Heavenly place tot relax

  • 5 of 5

The villa is a gem in a big lemon tree garden. Ideal place to relax with stunning view on the Etna at the back. Sea is not far away (15 min walk). Big supermarket only 10 minutes drive. Yes, there are some old-fashioned items in the house, but that has its charm! The owners are very friendly and eager to help, talking basic Italian could be helpful. Ask for some good restaurants: we ate very well at Torre Archirafi (but where can't you find good food in Italy!). I would recommend it to everybody who likes to enjoy holidays in a house with a soul!

Car: recommended

Villa Bagolaro is an excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily. The villa lies halfway between Catania and Taormina and just seven kilometres from Acireale (a pretty little city, built on a plateau of lava, that is known for its Baroque churches). Gardini Naxos, a seaside resort with beautiful sandy beaches, is just 25 kilometres from Villa Bagolaro. Beside it we find Taormina ‘the pearl of the Mediterranean’ and the most exclusive seaside resort in Sicily. Its ancient Greek theatre is world famous for its extraordinary panoramic views. Santa Maria la Scala and Aci Trezza are pleasant seaside villages near Villa Bagolaro. In the village Santa Tecla, a few kilometres from Praiola, is the renown, but quiet cheap, fish restaurant “Da Lorenzo”. 2 km from Villa Bagolaro is the big supermarket 'Iper'. Also 2 km from the house is Carubba, a town, with several shops and squares.
