About the property

Casale Mare Praiola

A rural road brings you to this country-house, proudly surveying its lemon grove from its stunning and perfectly peaceful setting on the coast. A private path leads directly to the beach of Praiola (50 meter).

The country house is separated in two independent apartments: Casa Limone e Casa Mandarino. Both apartments have their own terrace with privacy. Casa Limone has unique views from its two big terraces. Mandarino has a smaller terrace and less views.

About Giulia Lattanzio / Lenneke Burghouts

We have been with Homeaway since 2006, proposing houses that are able to unfold Sicily's colours and charm at best.

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.

ein sehr idyllisch gelegenes Ferienzuhause

  • 4 of 5

Casa Mandarino ist für alle die einen ruhigen Urlaub am Meer verbringen wollen die richtige Adresse.

Man muss allerdings erstmal die sehr schlechte Zufahrt bewältigen, auch die sehr vielen Mücken waren sehr störend!

Das Haus hat alles was man braucht, ist allerdings schon etwas in die Jahre gekommen.

Die Terasse mit Blick aufs Meer bietet Erholung pur und Meeresrauschen rund um die Uhr!

Der Zugang zum steinigen Strand ist schnell bewältigt, um gut ins Wasser zu kommen sollte man allerdings Badeschuhe anhaben.

Als Ausgangspunkt für viele Unternehmungen ist die Lage ideal, es gibt im nächsten Dorf auch einen Bahnhof.

Wir haben uns sehr gut erholt! Besonders nett und bemüht ist Rosario, der Hausverwalter!

très belles vacances

  • 4 of 5

La location est très agréable: nature et calme garantis.

L'accueil était très chaleureux. L'accès à la mer est rapide et très facile.

La maison était très bien équipée et les photos correspondent bien à la réalité.

Nous avons pu profiter à la fois de la mer et randonner dans l'etna.

Cette location est très bien adaptée pour une famille de 4 personnes.

Nearest Airport : Catania, Fontanarossa Airport at 25 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Acireale, Giarre at 9 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Catania at 25 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Il Picciolo, Castiglione di Sicilia at 45 Kilometres Nearest Train : Guardia Mangano at 7 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : Giarre at 7 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Stazzo, Santa Tecla, Torre Archirafi at 7 Kilometres Nearest Ski : Rifugio Sapienza, Etna at 30 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Praiola at 50 Metres Car: necessary

Praiola is an excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily. The place lies halfway between Catania and Taormina and just 7 kilometres from Acireale (a pretty little city, built on a plateau of lava, that is known for its Baroque churches).

Giardini Naxos, a seaside resort with beautiful sandy beaches, is just 20 kilometres from Praiola. Next to is is Taormina, ‘the pearl of the Mediterranean’, with the most exclusive seaside resort in Sicily. Its ancient Greek theatre is world famous for its stunning views.

Santa Maria la Scala and Aci Trezza are pleasant seaside villages near Praiola. In the village Santa Tecla, a few kilometres from Praiola, is the renown, but quiet cheap, fish restaurant “Da Lorenzo”. 2 km from the house is Carruba, a town, with a few shops and a square.

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