About the property

villa with garden, 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms

A 18th century aristocratic villa with huge suites, frescoed ceilings, antiques and a very nice garden with beautiful old trees all combine to make a stay at Villa Diana an unforgettable experience.

The villa distances 2 km from the center of Caltagirone and is located in a lawn with historical villas and close to one of the few big Hotels in Caltagirone.

Ground floor: a living room, a dining room, a new kitchen

First floor: 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.

There are two double bedrooms with ensuite bathroom, one triple room with three single beds and ensuite bathroom and a fourth room with a double bed. The fourth bathroom is next to this double room passing the communal hallway.

Caltagirone is in the middle of many places of interest: Piazza Armerina, Catania, Etna, Syracuse and the baroque towns of Ragusa can all be reached within a short drive.

Una experiencia inolvidable¡¡¡

  • 5 of 5

Hemos pasado un grupo de amigos unos dias en esta casa situada en una magnifica zona para visitar Sicilia, el ambiente es de los que se recuerda toda la vida.Las imagenes reflejan fielmente el encanto de la casa, situada en una finca que nos permitia pasear al atardecer despues de una visita a una zona próxima.

La casa dispone de todos los utensilios para cocinar, todo muy limpio, con una parte trasera que permite descansar y relajarte en un ambiente unico.

La propietaria, Valentina, encantadora , nos recibio con un vino siciliano y nos ofrecio su apoyo para lo que necesitasemos.

En definitiva, una estancia en sicilia y en una casa, que siempre permanecera en nuestro recuerdo.

Amazing villa & garden

  • 5 of 5

The pictures convinced us to book the villa. And the pictures were right! What a really amazing villa. It is indeed aristocratic, huge and very special.

We stayed in the villa for 6 nights with 2 grandparents, 2 parents and 1 teenager (yes, the wifi worked just fine). We enjoyed the frescoed living room (or ball room if you please), the very good equipped kitchen and the grand garden. Very good to have a bathroom in every sleeping room. And there was a washing machine as well (although not mentioned).

The owners of the villa welcomed us with wine, oil and basil. We received a rundown of the house and were good to temporarily take over the villa. Additional questions were quickly answered via phone or whatsapp. There is a supermarket and bakery nearby (Deco, Vialle de Europa) and an restaurant a few doors down.

Best of all, from Caltagirone you are centrally based to do, if you like, excursions to Agrigento, Villa de Casalle, Syracuse/Ortiga, Noto, Ragusa and Catania or the Etna. You are in the middle of the circle.

So, if you like something special, not mainstream, not in the middle of tourist packed villages we advice this villa.

Excellent. Lives up to the description and photos, with lots of interesting details. Friendly, helpful owners. Not overlooked, plenty of secure parking. The historic town is walkable.

Very Nice Typical House with all needed Equipment

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 6 friends and had the chance to stay 6 nights at this fantastic house between August 9th and August 15th 2015.

The house is well located in Caltagirone in proximity to a very nice restaurant and near facilities such as supermarkets and the city center (within a short ride by car). The house is huge and can easily accommodate a big family.

The decoration is well thought with enough furniture in the kitchen which would allow to have meals at home.

We really liked everything in the house:

- 4 big rooms on the first floor with their own bathrooms and toilets - providing enough intimacy to each one if needed.

- the garden with the table for our meals (especially dinners) and the hamacs in case we want to rest

- the big living room and the nice wooden tables, sofas and all the "mobilier" which remind us of Italian movies

- the office room and the dining room which we did not have time to use since we were always dining either in the kitchen or outside in the garden

- the kitchen which is well furnished (microwave, oven, dishwasher, big fridge...) and big enough for 2 to 3 people to cook together and help preparing dinner

- the parking area which is big enough for several cars - we had 2 cars which easily fit in there

Only a swimming pool was missing and would be appreciated due to the temperature we have in Sicily :)

While the location of Caltagirone is quite central in Sicily, it would though require some time to travel to Syracusa & Noto (1 to 1.5 hours) / to Catania (~1hour) / to Agrigento & Scala di Turchi (a bit less than 2 hours). So we need to be prepared to spend some time in car rides. But the comfort of the house and the space than we had made us feel it was a good compromise to stay in Caltagirone.

The owners are also very friendly and helpful.

We will certainly come back again for sure.
