Villa With Pool And Spectacular Views On The Coast

Overview

Property

Updated: 04-Dec-2016
6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, sea view, close to Etna, bright rooms, coastal views

Villa Valverde is a white villa on an exceptional location. It is set high above the sea with breathtaking views enjoyable both from the garden and from the huge window of the living room. Not to mention that all floors have terraces overlooking the Ionian Sea. It would be truly difficult to ask for a more delightful place.

The villa is on 3 floors, all modernly furnished. The ground floor consists of a big living room, a kitchen with dining table and 2 bathrooms with toilet, bidet and shower. On the first floor are another living room with fireplace and panoramic terrace, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with toilet, bidet and shower. The first bedroom has a double bed, a sofa bed and an en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom has two single beds (possibility double bed). The second - and upper floor - consists of 3 double rooms, a single room and a bathroom with toilet, bidet and tub with shower.

Furthermore, the villa is provided with all comforts: from the wireless Internet to the air-conditioning, to a dishwasher and an outdoor shower.

The small garden gives space to a refreshing swimming pool of 8x4 meters (deep 1.50 meter). The pool is open from the 1st April until early November.

From the village Valverde, a beautiful rural road, parallel on the coast, leads to the villa. Undoubtedly Villa Valverde is an excellent base for a cultural and natural exploration of the Eastern Sicily. The stunning baroque towns of Acireale and Catania, the charming Taormina, but also the volcano Etna are all really close. Moreover, thanks to the proximity of the highway (at San Gregorio, 3 km), also the South-East side of Sicily with highlights as Noto and Syracuse can be easily reached.

Guests will enjoy every season in Villa Valverde. Thanks to the presence of a fireplace, the central heating and to the very sunny climate in Sicily, the villa, indeed, offers a pleasant stay also in winter.

Very impressive Villa

  • 5 of 5

The Villas views are truly spectacular, the interiors are extremely spacious even for our very large group. The meal the owner cooked for us was a highlight of the trip and is a treat not to be missed.

Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay. The villa was beautiful, clean and spacious, there was 7 of us. The outside space was perfect with eating areas, loungers and the pool which the kids lived in. The views were breathtaking and stepping out onto the terraces each morning to soak them in was amazing. I have nothing but good things to say and really hope we get to return here. Car is definately needed. Our stay was just perfect. The owners are friendly and helpful. We would recommend taking a snorkel to Isola Bella and the cable car up Mount Etna, just amazing.

fantastic

  • 5 of 5

A perfect holiday in a perfect villa. We were 11 people from three countries getting together after two years. It was a wonderful house in a nice quiet village. At first a little difficult to find but then perfect. I cannot say anymore. Highly recommended

Great House

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house. Beautiful view. Plenty of room for our huge family. (9 of us). As somebody said before, the roads are narrow and windy and the house is really tucked away. But that's Sicily. The pool was a hit with the children. The owner was responsive and friendly and helpful. The pictures are accurate. We did walk to the nearby restaurant, but otherwise you have to drive everywhere else.

Luxious, quiet, beautiful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Every summer for the past several years I travel for a week with an old friend from college, typically to a sunny Mediterranean clime. This summer's trip to Sicily was one of our best yet, in very large part to having selected Villa Valverde to stay for 6 nights. As others have noted, the villa is enormous, spread out over three floors, with a number of separate 'hang out' areas. Modern & comfortable furnishings in each room. It can easily fit one or two families comfortably, and for the two of us it was ridiculously big (while more affordable, private and comfortable compared to the high-end hotels in the area that I had researched). Big open kitchen with all the utensils, pots etc that you need, nicely appointed bedrooms (several with a deck and view) and a small but lovely backyard and garden with a refreshing small pool, good for quick dips after laying in the sun. And the view! Atop the side of a steep hill, with the sea below -- stunning sunrises and sunsets, and wonderful views all day in between.

Mr. Patrizio, the key holder, was great. While his English was very limited and my Italian nonexistent, he did a good job welcoming me and showing me around. The surrounding area is rustic and pretty, and a convenient launching off point for day trips to towns in the eastern/central regions of the island. And the local bars/restaurants in the nearby village of Valverde (a 10-15 min picturesque walk) were authentically local and charming.

One note: be sure to get detailed directions -- the villa's road is not easy to find. The local roads are quite narrow and harrowing at times, so take care driving to and from the villa.

Overall, I loved our stay here and look forward to coming back one day.

Vue splendide

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable à Villa Valverde.

La maison est très spacieuse et fonctionnelle. Nous étions 3 familles avec enfants de 2 a 8 ans et l espace était parfait. La vue est magnifique. La maison est très bien place pour toutes les excursions sur la côte Est. ( Taormina, Catane, l Etna, Syracuze) les villages aux alentours sont également charmants.

Cette maison est à recommencer et nous y retournerions les yeux fermes pour un prochain séjour en Sicile.

An excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily. The villa lies 4 km from the coast 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 beautiful sandy beaches, is just 35 kilometres away. 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 seaside villages near Villa Valverde. In the village Santa Tecla, a few kilometres from Praiola, is the renown, but quiet cheap, fish restaurant “Da Lorenzo”.

Villa Valverde is also an excellent base from which to explore Mount Etna and its surroundings. The villages of Etna, such as Trecastagni, Zafferana Etnea e Randazzo, are famous for their ancient lava flows, the architecture of their seventeenth century churches, their delicious local produce and the hospitality of the villagers. Situated 700 metres above sea level, they are a favourite retreat of the city dwellers who, in summer are in search of cool, fresh air, while in winter are in search of snow for skiing. Few people are aware that Etna is a popular location for skiers in winter. On some glorious days in winter, it’s even possible to ski the frozen slopes in the morning enjoying a wonderful panoramic view of the Mediterranean, and then, the same afternoon, go and sunbathe on the beaches below!
