Villa Alma This property has been verified by our local team in Sicily Villas in Sicily in San Pier Niceto

Description

This 4-bedroom villa with pool, situated between Milazzo and Messina in north east Sicily, looks out from its lofty position over spectacular countryside and the dramatic Aeolian islands. There is a good selection of beaches within easy reach of the villa (the closest at 13 min drive).

The villa is surrounded by a garden and paved terraces, with an oval shaped pool and a superb outlook over the surrounding countryside and coastline. Alongside the pool, a pergola-shaded dining area, perfectly placed for the best views over the dramatic landscape, provides a lovely place for al fresco meals.

The villa is set on two floors, with the main living room and kitchen on the ground floor. The living room has a stunning curved floor to ceiling window with 180° views over the pool and, beyond that, the sea. A dining area is slightly separated from the main seating space in the lounge and there is also a table in the kitchen. One of the double bedrooms and two of the bathrooms (one with shower, one with bath) are on the ground floor.

An open staircase leads up from a second small living area (with double sofa bed) to three more bedrooms (two doubles, one single) and a third bathroom (with shower). The first floor terraces – leading from a double bedroom and a small living room – provide exceptional views along the coastline.

The area

San Pier Niceto is a small town with a couple of restaurants, several interesting churches and monuments and a colourful annual ‘Infiorata’ flower festival in May. 

There is a good choice of local beaches within easy reach of the villa (the closest, Rugantino, at 13 min drive). A 10km stretch of coastline between Gioiosa Marea and the small seaside town of San Giorgio incorporates beaches, cliffs and rocks, including the fine sandy beach at Capo Calavà and plenty of opportunities for snorkelling. At Brolo, the beaches share the same sparkling clear waters as the nearby Aeolian islands. Close to Tindari, the Laghetti di Marinello, with its ever-shifting tongue of white sand, also offers crystal clear water in a spectacular natural setting. 

Heading west, Montalbano Elicona (around 1hr by car), a medieval hilltop village in the Nebrodi mountains, offers magnificent views of the sea, the Aeolian Islands and Mount Etna and has been nominated one of Italy’s most beautiful villages. To the south, the glamorous town of Taormina is around an hour and a quarter’s drive. 

Given the proximity to Milazzo, a boat excursion to the Aeolian islands is a popular option and a selection of adventure-style activities such as canyoning and body rafting can be organised at the Alcantara Gorge (around 1hr20m).

Excellent service from booking to arrival at a Villa Alma. Villa Alma is stunning. Just as pictured on the Wish Sicily website. Views are breathtaking. Pool was excellent. There is a small play area for young children within the villa grounds. The villa is on a very large plot of land and is very secure with high walls and electric gates. Villa Alma was immaculate and beautifully furnished and had everything we needed. Elisabetta left us a welcome pack which was much appreciated. We met her in the local village then followed her to the villa for our tour and key hand over. She was contactable throughout our stay and organised cleaning and new bed linen and towels midway through our stay (included in villa cost). I would not hesitate in recommending Villa Alma. p.s. try Caffe Venezuela on the way in to Milazzo for a delicious coffee granita and brioche breakfast, you won’t be disappointed.

The villa is beautiful and in a fantastic location with hills on one side and the sea on the other. There are 360 views which are stunning! They are exactly like the photos so you will not be disappointed! Elisabetta was very welcoming and a very helpful hostess. She really helped us out when our car got a flat tyre and there was no spare provided by the car hire company. Thankfully Elisabetta rescued us and drove us all the way back to the airport to get the replacement car. Recommendations include visiting the Venus pool at Milazzo Cape - don't be put off by the oil refinery as you can't see it from the pools or the beautiful walk through the olive groves, visiting Mantalbano Elicone village which is stunning, Tindari and the beautiful Marinello beach/lakes/nature reserve nearby. Capo d'Orlando is also nice to visit and has lots of restaurants and bars. For eating Ngonia Bay and Il Giardine di SicilIa in Milazzo, Panne e vino in Tindari is a fantastic experience! There is also an amazing ice cream shop in Oliveri which is the town you go through to get to the Marinello nature reserve. The local pizza restaurant Scibilliana is at the bottom of the hill just before you get to the main road and is great. It is 15 mins drive from the house and worth a visit. Opens very late and really friendly staff!

We stayed in Villa Alma for 2 weeks during August. The villa location is stunning and the local area beautiful. Elisabetta was available when required and helpful in addressing any questions we had. The quality of the villa is very high. If choosing to visit Sicily again I would certainly use Wish Sicily in the future as have not been disappointed.

Nous étions un groupe de 4 adultes du Québec, nous avons passé 6 nuits à la Villa Alma du 14 au 20 septembre 2016 Agréable... mémorable, confortable, un endroit avec une vue de 360 degrée... la maison est d'une qualité et d'une propreté incroyable. Elizabeth la propriétaire est très gentille et dévouée, nous avons rencontré son père, une personne charmante. Bref rien à dire de négatif... l'endroit calme avec piscine et jardin ... la photo vous démontre exactement ce que vous verrez... Si vous avez besoin de quelque choses pendant votre séjour ... la rapidité à laquelle, la propriétaire s'exécute est incroyable... Merci à Elizabeth, merci à ton père.
