Property description

Casale dei Normanni is located high above the sea on a stunning and perfectly peaceful setting on the coast. A rural road brings you to this piece of paradise. The house is surrounded by typical Sicilian vegetation, including pine & palm trees and many flowers. It is situated on a cliff between Acireale and Praiola, and has a sweeping view over the sea, the beach and the coast of Taormina. A private path leads directly to the beach (50 meters). Although you are immersed in nature and silence, you are not isolated because there are some other holiday homes and cottages nearby.
The ground floor consists of a kitchen with dining table, a spacious living room with a table, sofas and couches, a bedroom with double bed and a single bed and an en-suite bathroom. On the upper floor is a huge bedroom with high ceiling, a double bed and a single bed, and 2 bathrooms, another big bedroom with two single beds (possibility double bed). All rooms have sea view.

In the village Santa Tecla, a few kilometres from Praiola, is the renown fish restaurant “Da Lorenzo”. 2 km from the house is a big supermarket. Also nearby is Acireale, a baroque town, with several shops and squares. Taormina and Catania distance 25 km. Fresh fish can be bought in Pozzillo, a fishermen's village very near.

Praiola is an excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily. It is 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 20 kilometres from Praiola. 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 fisherman's villages near Praiola. In the village Santa Tecla, a few kilometres from Praiola, is the renown, but quiet cheap, fish restaurant “Da Lorenzo”. 2 km from Casa Praiola is the big supermarket 'Iper Simply'. Also 2 km from the house is Carubba, a town, with several shops and squares. Casale dei Normanni is also an excellent base from which to explore volcano Etna and its villages, like Trecastagni and Zafferana Etnea.

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.
