About the Property

16 sleeps, beautifully tended garden, well furnished, pool open all year round

Villa Alemà is a spacious villa with private pool and garden located on the south-eastern flanks of Mount Etna just a few minutes outside the towns of Aci S. Antonio and Acireale. The villa has high ceilings and smooth lava stone features. The garden is beautifully tended, with a perfect lawn and shaded areas, including a gazebo. The pool is 16 x 10 meters and up to 2.90 meters deep. Indoor and outdoor living areas combine seamlessly. The villa is perfectly located to explore the Eastern side of Sicily, but you will also be well content to relax in the stunning surroundings of the villa, the garden and the pool.

The villa consists of two floors and a dépendance.
From the main entrance you access the living room that once was a ‘palmento’, an antique olive crusher. The living room opens onto a covered patio area, perfect for dining during hot summer days. The ground floor has a spacious kitchen, a room with a pool table, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The 1st floor has a bathroom, 3 bedrooms with air conditioning and a terrace with a wide view on Mount Etna. In the garden is a renovated dependence with air conditioning, 3 sleeps and a bathroom.

Villa Alemà is also suitable for a winter stay thanks to the heating system and a gas heater in the palmento.

Villa Alemà is an excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily. The villa lies almost halfway between Catania and Taormina and just five 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 a sandy beach, is just 35 kilometres away. Just a little further you'll find Taormina ‘the pearl of the Mediterranean’ and the most exclusive seaside resorts in Sicily. Its ancient Greek theatre is world famous for its extraordinary panoramic view. Santa Maria la Scala, AciTrezza, and Santa Tecla are pleasant seaside villages near Villa Alemà where you can find delicious granite and very good restaurants.

The 18 hole Golf course Il Picciolo is an easy drive (45 minutes).

Other Activities: Excursions to Mount Etna, the biggest volcano of Europa

 

Manager info

intoSicily

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.
