Villa Viscalori This property has been verified by our local team in Sicily Villas in Sicily in Viagrande

Description

A traditional-style villa on the slopes of Mount Etna with a pool and countryside views. The villa is set in a huge 4000sqm garden with large patios, terraced lawns and a modern pool surrounded by attractive decking. There is an outdoor shower and sauna and an 18th century palmento (wine press) now houses a mini fitness area and pool table.

The villa’s imposing ivy-clad stone exterior reveals a classic Sicilian villa, built on three levels, without frills but with several magnificent original features. On the ground floor, the entrance to the villa leads directly into the large living room which has a piano and open fireplace. A conservatory, overlooking the terrace, provides an additional dining area. The ground floor kitchen is extremely traditional, with beautiful tiling and painted wood furniture but well-equipped with all mod cons.

There are two double bedrooms on the first floor, each with its own bathroom (one with bath, one with shower) and one with a sea view terrace, and two extra sleeps in a third room with balcony. On the second floor, the third double bedroom has a bathroom (with shower) and views over the pool and, in the distance, Mount Etna.

The area

Villa Viscalori is situated close to the pretty town of Viagrande, well-placed for trips to the Etna volcano and for visiting the towns of Acireale and Catania on Sicily’s east coast. The chic resort of Taormina is around 50km to the north. The closest rocky beaches of Acireale and Acicastello, with free-access and equipped areas, offer great views of the Isole dei Ciclopi.

Restaurants, gelaterie, supermarkets, bakeries, greengrocers and butchers can be found in Viagrande town centre (2 minute drive). 

The delightful Catania is a 20min drive from the villa. The town is plenty of superb restaurants and its striking Baroque architecture and great nightlife will give you a true flavour of urban Sicilian life.

Nearby attractions also include the Alcantara Gorge, Etnaland theme park and the 18 hole Il Picciolo Golf Club on the northern side of Mount Etna, at 650 meters from the sea level, near Castiglione di Sicilia.

A little further afield, though still only about 1.5 hours away, guests can visit the Baroque towns of NotoSiracusa and Ortigia.

We loved this place! The house is so charming, quirky, huge... so much to do as well! We're sorry we didn't spend more time there enjoying it but it's so well situated for exploring we were out and about most days. Santo and his family are amazing hosts as well, inviting, generous, warm, helpful. I would love to go back!

We are absolutely delighted with the house. It surpasses our expectations in so many ways. It is charming and spacious, it oozes character and style, it is very well appointed and the gardens are delightful. Adelaide (Santo’s wife) and Gabrielle (the housekeeper) were both amazingly enthusiastic and helpful on our arrival, and Santo has been very welcoming and helpful on the phone. We are already discussing when we should book it for next year and for how long! We cannot recommend this place enough.
