Santa Venerina is an excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily. The village lies halfway between Catania and Taormina and just 8 km 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 beaches, is just 25 km from Santa Venerina (15 minutes with the highway). Next to Giardini Naxos 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. Pozzillo, Santa Maria la Scala are Aci Trezza are pleasant seaside villages near Santa Venerina. The nearest can be found in Praiola (7 km), a wild pebbled beach next to an impressive cliff.

Tolles Haus

  • 4 of 5

Das Haus ist sehr schön und ruhig, die Vermieter sind sehr nett gewesen und kümmerten sich um einen sehr angenehmen Aufenthalt! Die Ausstattung des Hauses ist sehr gut, leider gab es keinen Geschirrspüler.

Von der Terrasse kann man direkt auf den Ätna schauen- ein absoluter traumhafter Anblick!!

Perfect villa for all ages

  • 4 of 5

Our party of 8 ranged in age from 4 to 72 years old and we also needed somewhere that could accommodate some one with limited mobility. Villa Mareneve turned out to be perfect for our needs. The ground floor bedroom was easily accessible, although my mother in law was unsure about the only shower on this floor being in the utility/cloakroom. The other bedrooms upstairs were well appointed and gave us ample room for our needs. The 4 year old certainly made the most of having his own double bed with en-suite, choosing this over the small single room attached to his parents bedroom! The kitchen had an excellent supply of crockery, pots, pans and utensils.

Outside the pool and gardens were wonderful, with views both towards the sea and Mt. Etna. The barbecue is some distance from the house, which makes it a little antisocial for those doing the cooking, but was otherwise excellent and provided us with 2 good meals during our week long stay.

The owners were lovely and very helpful, especially Mara who helped one of our party find a doctor. On the first night we had asked them to cook us a meal which was delicious and enjoyed by all.

Not criticisms, but points worth noting: Whilst the location was pleasant, it is not apparent from the owners description that the villa is quite close to another villa they also own and is partially overlooked by this other house. Whilst we were staying, there was a group of girls at this other villa, who weren't particularly noisy, but like all young people liked their music and would sometimes be quite loud on their return from a night out. So if you are looking for isolation and peace and quiet, this villa may not be for you.

Also, there is no dishwasher. On reviewing the details of the property, there isn't one listed, so it was our own fault that this came as a bit of surprise. We were a relatively small group for this villa and if we found it tedious doing the washing up, I can imagine it being a nightmare for larger groups.

Location wise, Santa Venerina does not have a lot to offer the tourist so be prepared to travel to see the sights.

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Mareneve and had a very relaxing family holiday.

5 Stars *****

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week at Villa Mareneve. Mara (the hostess) was very helpful and cooked us a fantastic Sicilian Feast on our first night at the villa. The Location is close to the airport with great local amenities and we couldn't ask for more from the Villa. Great swimming pool, beautiful gardens with fresh fruit and herbs to pick everyday and spacious rooms. the views of the sea & mount Etna only added to the experience.

we would recommend Villa Mareneve to anyone visiting Sicily.

Dream house!

  • 5 of 5

We were with 7 adults, and 3 small children. Two of them were babies of 7 months old. Villa Mareneve is a lovely place. Very clean, enough space for every one, a beautiful pool and a lovely garden. We could pick every morning the oranges from the tree for breakfast! The view to the Etna and the sea is marvelous.

Mara, the daughter of the owner, and also het mother are nice persons. Friendly, always willing to help us. They bought a second toddler high chair so that both of the babies could sit outside with us. When we asked her, Mara arranged a wine tasting in the house.

For us it was a very nice place to be.
