Casa Gialla This property has been verified by our local team in Sicily Villas in Sicily in Sant'Alfio

Description

Situated on a small estate in on the slopes of Mount Etna, Casa Gialla is a comfortable family villa with a private pool and generous-sized garden which is conveniently located just a short drive from the shops in Sant’Alfio. The nearby slopes of Mount Etna offer a range of wine-tasting excursions, hiking and adventure activities and the coastal towns of Taormina and Acireale are within easy reach.

Outside, the private figure-of-eight-shaped pool is encircled by spacious terraces equipped with sunbeds and chairs to lie back on and admire the views over the surrounding countryside and the coast. A covered dining area adjacent to the villa and overlooking the pool provides shade for al fresco meals. There are also lawns and a large patio for the children to play on (in addition to a children’s play area with a swing and a boules area).

Ideal for a large family, the interior of the villa is traditionally decorated and furnished, with beamed ceilings, ancient fireplaces and polished terracotta floors. The living and dining rooms are separate, with the dining room leading directly through an archway into a well-equipped open-plan kitchen, with table and chairs. There are three double bedrooms, plus a sofa bed, and two bathrooms (each with shower).

The estate is also home to Tana, a one-bedroom cottage which is completely independent and available on request at extra cost.

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.

Big, spacious house, lovely views to coast and Etna. Caretaker Antonio friendly and helpful. Lovely clean pool, but families should know that it has no shallow end - younger kids won't be able to stand. The access road from the main road is unpaved, very narrow in places and in a state of disrepair. A normal hire car could find it a challenge - hard on the suspension!

Very big house, particularly good for two couples as two of the bedrooms/bathrooms are at opposite ends of the house. The grounds are massive, entirely secluded and quiet with plenty of outdoor furniture and the pool is lovely and extremely clean. Marco was very good with communication and the property manager Antonio took good care of us. Wish Sicily was efficient and easy to work with throughout.
