About Franco Civello
I used to spend my summer holidays in this house. Now my family and I can only stay here a few weeks each year. The house is available otherwise.
Franco Civello purchased this Villa in 1975
Why Franco Civello chose Brucoli
It's easier to manage a house that is open and used rather than closed for most of the year.
What makes this Villa unique
The special feature of the house is its close proximity to a very calm sea, in a sheltered bay, and therefore ideal for swimming. It also boasts a large patio and a large garden with olive and pine trees. The view from the house is spectacular and the house is part of a private compound , full of trees and vegetation, next to a nature reserve,

Beautiful Villa by the sea
We searched for a calm and nice place close to the seaside for our family vacation and we found it in Francos house in Brucoli. The property is within a well-kept gated community and the caretaker Claudio is always available to help. All bedrooms and the living room are equipped with individual air-conditioning. WiFi is included and working well. Kitchen has got all you need to cook any meal. Most of the time we spent outside on the new patio or on the lawn which has got stairs to a semi-private sandbeach with a view of Etna. After the swim there is a convenient outdoor shower. There are plenty of chairs and even tabletennis equipment. There is also a tennis court on the premises that you can use.
Beds were decent but maybe a bit outdated although all six of us slept well.
From the house you can walk to the village of Brucoli in 15-20 minutes and here you can find a handful of nice restaurants .
There are plenty of sights to see in less than one hours drive and we went to Taormina, Isola Bella, Alcantara, Noto, Siracusa and Etna.
All in all we had a perfect and relaxing week in this nice house thanks to Franco and Claudio.
The house is exceptionally well equipped. The situation is fabulous with stunning views over the bay and easy access to Bruccoli for shopping and restaurants. Everyone we dealt with for the property was very friendly and helpful.
Thankyou Moira. I am so glad you liked our place. It’s our second home and we are delighted when our guests enjoy their stay.
We spent 8 great days with our 3 boys end of July and we really enjoyed everything! The only recommendation is to repair the double bed. Mattress is fine but the support planks under it need change. We should tell Claudio the caretaker who was so kind and helpful but since we had so great time we forgot it... If in Sicily we'll stay again.
Hi Yannis. I am happy you had a great holiday. I'll let Claudio know to fix the bed planks. He is a great asset to us - al our guests love him. Best wishes to you and your family. Franco
We had a wonderful and comfortable stay. The house is completely outfitted, from the kitchen to the hi-speed internet, with plenty of storage space and detailed instructions for all appliances, etc. The garden is lovely and perfect for meals, napping, and children who need to run! And the location...what can I say? It couldn't be better. The view of Mt Etna in one direction, quaint Brucoli in the other, and uninterrupted sea between. It is beautiful. We swam almost daily, and within an hour's drive were able to visit ancient ruins, vineyards, Baroque churches, caves, excellent restaurants and beaches. Oh, and there is also a friendly and capable caretaker across the street. My family and I loved staying here and we hope to be back!
Ellen has captured perfectly what we love about our house. Thanks Ellen - come back soon.
Stunning location - with your own "private" beach and the best view of Mount Etna
The house is wonderful, keeps cool even on the warmest days, excellent equiped, clean, aircontiditoned - and the location ... stunning. Absolutely stunning. The feeling of having your own private beach only a few steps from your house makes you not want to leave this place. A big garden surrounds the house and makes you get the feeling of your own private area. The always helpful Carlos met us at the gate when we arrived, showed us the house and told us about the area. The charming town Brucoli looks during daytime as a sleepy place, but when the sun goes down people arrive from long distances and turns it to a lively cool place. With a rented car you can easily reach the best cultural sites as i.e Siracusa, Noto, Mt Etna, Villa Romana.
Our holiday was amazing!
The location could not be better.The villa is wonderfully equipped and secluded in it's own grounds.It catered for our every need and we wanted for nothing.Franco and Claudio were extremely helpful with our arrangements,enquiries etc.We will definitely consider going back in the future.
