About the Property

Air conditioning, Sea View, Beach, Terrace, Internet, garden, 400m from village

The cottages Carruba are 4 cute homes, with Internet and air-conditioning, located in a stunning and perfectly peaceful setting between the sea and Mount Etna, proudly surveying an estate on the coast, with a direct access to the pebbled beach of Praiola. A road leads from the villa to the sea passing through a valley full of flowers and Mediterranean plants. All on private land. From the garden the views extend from the lush green of the surrounding lemon orchards to the crystalline blue of the sea. The inspiring sight of Mount Etna is right behind the cottages. In the village Carruba (400 meters) is a bakery and a supermarket. The second beach of Praiola is only 1 km away. Torre Archirafi, Santa Maria la Scala, Santa Tecla and Aci Trezza are pleasant fishing villages with good restaurants. Taormina and the sandy beach of Giardini Naxos distance 25 km.

Guests can pick the fruits of the different fruit trees on the estate.

Car: Recommended

The villa in which Casa Carruba is located, 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 from Casa Carruba. 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 near Casa Carruba. In the village Santa Tecla, a few kilometres from Praiola, is the renown, but quiet cheap, fish restaurant “Da Lorenzo”. 2 km from the house is the big supermarket 'Iper simply'. Only 1 km from the house is Carruba, a town, with several shops and squares.


Manager info


About: We have been with Homeaway since 2006, proposing houses that are able to unfold Sicily's colours and charm at best. Houses with quality furnishing in unique locations, with incredible views or with a pool, always accurately selected in order to satisfy our main wish: to see you falling in love with Sicily just like we did. We provide you with transparent information and true pictures. What you see is exactly what you get. We will advise you as much as we can about travel info, transfers and car rental. Dinners in villas and other extra services can also be arranged. Finally, our prices are final rates! There are no hidden additional costs. We are flexible with your arrivals and departures and if you need a late check-in this is usually possible.
