About the property

Equipped with large garden for outdoor dining, the air-conditioned apartment is located on the ground floor of the new and elegant villa 'Amaras', located on a bay of cliffs known as 'Vetrano', where you can easily make a splash. From the veranda in front of the apartment you can admire the sea and from the elegant living room with a large window the Etna volcano, white snow in winter, and if you're lucky, sparkling red lava at night. Amaras is an oasis of calm where you can take a nature walk. You can buy (or fish) fresh fish and cook it on the barbecue or enjoy a typical dinner in one of the many restaurants open from 20.00 to 23.30 approximately in the nearby (by car).

The villa is situated in a quiet residential area between Augusta and Brucoli, 5' driving from the Catania-Siracusa in excellent logistic location for visiting central and eastern Sicily.

There are several places where you can have a drink. An aperitif at 7 pm in Piazza Duomo in Augusta or a beer after dinner in Brucoli will be the ideal way to get in touch with the locals,who come out very late at night,even at midnight. A local habit at night is a ride south to Syracuse or Marzamemi or north to Catania or Taormina. But do not miss the opportunity to enjoy Augusta dining (after 8 pm) with a 'flattened' stuffed to your liking by 'the lighthouse' (also known as Faro or Faro Santa Croce St. Helena, festivities on Aug 18th) and visiting (before noon to have the best light) the many bays of Augusta, the most beautiful that of 'Sbarcatore'.

Super eingerichtet mit Aussicht auf Meer und Ätna

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben wunderschöne Ferien in dieser gepflegten und sehr gut eingerichteten Ferienwohnung verbracht. Wir hätten ohne einzukaufen drei Tage mit den Vorräten auskommen können. Auch an die kleinen Bedürfnisse wurde gedacht. Einmalig schön ist die ruhige Lage. Wir haben wunderbar geschlafen. Das Haus ist über einem kleinen Tal mit kleinen Rebbergen und Natur pur gelegen. Ein Fussweg führt in wenigen Minuten zu einer Meerbucht. Die Küste lädt zu Spaziergängen ein. Der Blick reicht bis zum Ätna. Unzählig und vielfältig sind die Ausflugsmöglichkeiten in die Umgebung für alle Interessen. Wir wurden von Nadia und Vincenzo sehr nett empfangen und wir verstanden uns sofort gut. Sie erfüllten uns alle Wünsche und standen zur Verfügung, wenn wir sie brauchten. Für uns schön war auch, dass dieser Küstenabschnitt ganzjährig bewohnt wird und nicht nur ein Ferienort ist. Gerne werden wir bei Gelegenheit wieder in diese Wohnung zurückkehren. Wir werden sie unseren Freunden und Bekannten empfehlen. Herzlichen Dank für Alles!

Perfetta location per la East Coast della Sicilia

Casa nuova e molto ben arredata, molto ben fornita di ogni accessorio utile per una famiglia in soggiorno - vacanza, compresi condizionatori utilissimi in estati calde come l'ultima trascorsa..... Nadia e sua mamma molto gentili ed accoglienti e sempre presenti quando richiesto un supporto. Location tranquilla e comodissima a centro commerciale per acquisti e spesa. Spazio a giardino riservato con patio attrezzati per mangiare e riposare all'esterno. Accesso al mare in pratica diretto.
