Le Case dell'Etna This property has been verified by our local team in Sicily Villas in Sicily in Sant'Alfio

Description

Situated between the slopes of Mount Etna and the coastline that runs from Taormina to Acireale, Le Case dell’Etna is a collection of three villas and two pools set amidst leafy lawns and terraces close to the village of Sant’Alfio. The villas are ideal for several families who want to holiday together whilst still retaining some independence. Top local sights include Mount Etna and the Castagno dei Cento Cavalli, reputedly the oldest tree in Sicily and one of the oldest in Europe. The nearest shops are in Sant’Alfio and there is a good selection of restaurants in Giarre.

 

Children will love the huge amount of open space available on the estate. Large sun decks surround the two pools and beyond that, there are lawns and terraces for outdoor dining.

 

The three villas are completely independent and set far apart from each other. Casa Gialla has the largest living space, with a sizeable living room and a separate dining room with an open fireplace. An archway leads from the dining room to the roomy open plan kitchen. The villa has three double bedrooms plus a sofa bed and two bathrooms (each with shower). Outside, a lovely 8 shape pool with seaview and furnished solarium.

 

Cocuzzolo, a yellow-walled cottage with green shutters, also has three double bedrooms and three bathrooms (with shower). The third bedroom is on the upper floor with a sloping ceiling. There is a small living room next to the kitchen which has double doors out to an attractive outdoor dining area with sea views.

 

Tana is a small stone house with a double bedroom, two single beds on a mezzanine level and a bathroom (with shower). Directly in front of the cottage, there is 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.
