Giarre house description

Casa Gialla is situated between Catania and Taormina and between Mount Etna and the sea, in a peaceful setting. Indoor and outdoor living combine seamlessly due to the bright and welcoming rooms and their communication with the terrace. The living areas and bedrooms of Casa Gialla are all on one floor (the first floor). Villa Bagolaro consists of 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms with shower, bidet and toilet, a kitchen with dining table, fireplace and armchairs. 3 bedrooms are double rooms, one is a twin room but can be transformed in a double room. Outside there is a big terrace with seating, deckchairs, and barbecue. Guests can pick the fruits from the orchard.
Because of the presence of a fireplace and air-conditioning (warm/cold), the house offers a pleasant stay also during the few cold weeks of the short Sicilian winter. On request, an USB internet key can be provided.


The area: Casa Gialla is an excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily. The house lies halfway between Catania and Taormina and just seven kilometres from Acireale (a pretty little city, built on a plateau of lava, that is known for its Baroque churches). Gardini Naxos, a seaside resort with beautiful sandy beaches, is just 25 kilometres away. Beside it we find Taormina ‘the pearl of the Mediterranean’ and the most exclusive seaside resort in Sicily. Its ancient Greek theatre is world famous for its extraordinary panoramic views. Santa Maria la Scala and Aci Trezza are pleasant seaside villages nearby. In the village Santa Tecla, a few kilometres from Praiola, is the renown, but quiet cheap, fish restaurant “Da Lorenzo”. 3 km from the house is the big supermarket 'Conforama'. 1 km from the house is Mangano, a town with several shops and a bakery.

Mount Etna: Casa Gialla is an excellent base from which to explore Mount Etna and its surroundings. The villages of Etna, such as Trecastagni, Zafferana Etnea e Randazzo, are famous for their ancient lava flows, the architecture of their seventeenth century churches, their delicious local produce and the hospitality of the villagers. Situated 700 metres above sea level, they are a favourite retreat of the city dwellers who, in summer are in search of cool, fresh air, while in winter are in search of snow for skiing. Few people are aware that Etna is a popular location for skiers in winter. On some glorious days in winter, it’s even possible to ski the frozen slopes in the morning enjoying a wonderful panoramic view of the Mediterranean, and then, the same afternoon, go and sunbathe on the beaches below!
