Cocuzzolo & Tana This property has been verified by our local team in Sicily Villas in Sicily in Sant'Alfio

Description

For families holidaying with grandparents or an additional couple, these two properties offer the best of both worlds – enough living space for everyone to spend time together with some extra privacy when needed. Accommodation is in a main house (Cocuzzolo, sleeps 6) and a smaller cottage for 4 (Tana), set amongst extensive leafy gardens with a pool and sea views. The villas are on the eastern slopes of Mount Etna, within easy reach of the coast between Acireale and Taormina. The nearest shops are in the village of Sant’Alfio.

 

The two villas are set apart from each other amidst the leafy landscaped gardens of Le Case dell’Etna estate. The pool is closest to Cocuzzolo, surrounded by large sun terraces and trees. Both villas have patios for al fresco dining.

 

Cocuzzolo, a yellow-walled cottage with green shuttered windows, is the larger of the two villas. Accommodation includes a smallish living room and a kitchen with double doors that lead out to the outdoor dining terrace. There are three double bedrooms and three bathrooms (with shower). The third bedroom is on the upper floor with a sloping ceiling. Tana is a small stone house with a double bedroom, two single beds on a mezzanine level and a bathroom (with shower). The cottage and outdoor dining terrace overlooks a children’s play area with a swing, a boules area and a barbecue.

The area

Less than an hour’s drive from Catania, Sant’Alfio is a small village on the eastern slopes of Mount Etna, best known for its magnificent Castagno dei Cento Cavalli tree. Thanks to the fertile soil, local landscapes are of vineyards and citrus groves, set against the backdrop of the rocky coastline that sweeps along the Ionian Sea.

 

Local coastal towns include Giarre, around 7km away, which is home to the remains of an 11th century church, in addition to shops and restaurants. To the north, Taormina is a delightful seaside town, with lovely beaches, a picturesque town centre and a magnificent Greek-Roman amphitheatre. To the south, we also recommend visiting Acireale, renowned for its Carnevale but also home to several Baroque-style buildings and Roman thermal baths. Catania is Sicily’s second largest city, with an attractive historic centre and fabulous fish market!

 

The slopes of Mount Etna are dotted with hillside towns such as Zafferana Etnea and Milo, constructed largely out of black lava stone. In addition to visiting Mount Etna, a range of excursions, wine-tastings and adventure activities are available on and around the volcano.
