About the property

private heated pool, marble, WiFi, air conditioning, 2 km from sandy beaches

A huge villa with a private heated pool and a stunning garden located at only 2 km from the sandy beaches and restaurants of Recanati and Giardini Naxos.

Villa di Marmo is a villa with all modern comforts, luxury marble features (the owner's personal touch) and several terraces ideal for dining together or reading a book in the shade. The well-tended garden has a fresh English-style lawn, a lovely pavilion and a fountain with fishes.

The villa is on three floors. The main floor on the level of the garden consists of a living room, a well-equipped kitchen with a dishwasher, a double bedroom and a bathroom with shower. From this floor you have access to the veranda with a hammock and armchairs and to the terrace with a table, chairs and a view of the crystal clear pool and of Mount Etna.

On the upper floor there are two double bedrooms and two luxury bathrooms with fine marble features. One bathroom is en-suite and has a shower with massage jets. The other bathroom, next to the room, has a relaxing jacuzzi. Both bedrooms have access to two terraces, one with view on the pool and Mount Etna and the other with view of elegant Taormina. On this floor there also is a laundry room with a washing machine.

Below the main floor, and slightly below the ground level, there is an entire area devoted to games: pool table, football table, flipper and table games. On this floor there is also a convenient second kitchen, a bathroom, and a sleeping area with a double sofa bed created with dividers and an actual bedroom, (but with no windows facing outside), with a double bed.

Villa di Marmo is an ideal fully-equipped family villa that will make everyone happy, all year round!

Good property for a larger group

  • 4 of 5

The property was well prepared for us on arrival and the two people that met us were very helpful. They left us a bottle of wine and even recommended somewhere to go out for New Years Eve.

We were two families - 4 adults, 5 children - so the size of the villa was just about right. Everyone had a bed, and the smallest was on a fold out sofa bed.

Major plus points were the pool and the basement level games room with a pool table and pinball machine.

The kitchen was also large, but we struggled to get 9 people around the table. It was also a little under equipped if you wanted to cook at home, but a relatively minor point.

Spectacular views of Etna every morning were certainly uplifting for the soul, and we were lucky with the weather for the time of year (28 Dec to 4 Jan) with highs of 17 deg and lots of dry weather and sun.

The only downsides for the adults were that the beds were in need of an upgrade - new mattresses would sort this easily.

Overall, loved the place and the location and can recommend it with a clear conscience.

We had e very nice stay in this beatifull Villa, in a great location. The hosts were very friendly.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this villa with about 8 people. The villa is very luxurious, and the hosts very friendly and considerate. The bedrooms are very spacious, with practically private bathrooms, there is a playing room in the basement, and several outside areas to lunch and dine. Some of the best meals we had were at our own villa, with beautifully dressed tables. The hot water was gone at times, but even on a Saturday night the owner came straight away to fix it for us. With the usual weather in Sicily it also wasn't a big issue. All in all this place comes highly recommended.

Overall nice Villa

  • 3 of 5

Overall a nice villa but little things let them down. First the good things, great size swimming pool. Lovely garden. House has a good flow and a great games room. Kitchen is fully equipped. The things which let it down are no toilet paper provided, some of the towels provided were stained, the pool which should of been cleaned after 3 days wasn't cleaned until day 5 and only at our request. The pool toys were either broken or dirty. Probably better to dispose of them. Also when we arrived we were given a list of things that weren't allowed which wasn't very welcoming. It maybe an idea to attach a list of local attractions, nearest grocery store, recommendations on restauarants etc. So its more like a welcome pack. As I said these were little things but it is a nice villa and has amazing views.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback, although this villa does not deserve 3 stars. We will use it to improve even more the stay of future guests in Villa di Marmo. Please note that the pool is cleaned at the beginning and at the end of each stay in order not to disturb the privacy of the guests. Bathroom towels are cleaned by a professional company weekly.

Stunning views, lovely gardens and pool

  • 4 of 5

The property was difficult to find due to the complex road system locally, located in a private road off a VERY busy road running through the village of Trappitello. The villa has stunning views of Etna, the garden and pool area very impressive. The location is very convenient for visiting any of the resorts on the Eastern side of the island, but Trappitello itself is quite a run down little town with just a few small local shops.

The games room in the basement was a great source of evening entertainment, and the outdoor space is stunning with plenty of seating and outdoor dining areas.The interior décor of the villa is an odd mix of traditional Italian opulence and modern Ikea furnishings.

We did have some problems with lack of hot water at times which was a bit of a nuisance with a young child and the dishwasher seemed to have a mind of its own! Compared to some villas we have rented elsewhere in Europe and considering the rental rates I felt it could do with a little updating.

I have also noted that villas rented through agencies like Owners Direct (rather than traditional Villa rental companies) do not include things like a welcome pack of essentials such as toilet rolls, dishwasher tablets, bottled water - these little extras are really helpful when arriving late in the day. It would also be useful to have some info in the villa re location and opening times of local shops/restaurants etc.

Very peaceful and bigger than you think!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week in this lovely villa. Incredibly spacious and well presented. Big bedrooms and the games room in the basement ( although windows/doors to driveway so very light and airy) was a huge bonus. Not only was it the coolest place in the house but it kept us all entertained with the pool table, darts and table football and to top it off a little bar!!! This area also had a sitting room area, kitchen area with fridge, bed settee and bathroom.

The ground level was a delight. The kitchen/living area was a fabulous space On arrival a bottle of wine/water and a bowl full of fruit which was a lovely gesture.

The amount of marble in the house not only looks stunning but is very welcome to cool down your feet on a hot day. The two bedrooms upstairs are again, very well furnished with huge bathrooms plus the utility room.

The outside space is deceiving as good use was made of the area, even if the house was full which ours was, you could always find a space to relax. The pond waterfall and outside lighting were all on timers so no effort required at all. The pool area is fantastic! We hired a car from the airport but parking is no problem at all if there are different families sharing. The house is in a very safe locked gated community.

They are not many restaurants in the area but we went to Al Feudo which as you come out of the gate at the end turn left for approx 0.5mls on the right. You can park at the bottom and walk up to the restaurant the views are stunning. Typically british we were there at 7.30pm it looked closed but it wasn't the food was lovely so it became our local. We drove there as walking looked a little dangerous!!

Small supermarket 5 mins away but much better one 10 mins away ask Morena!

We also drove to Giardino Naxas one evening and ate at Lido La Romantica. The food was lovely and it is set on the beach. Parking at 7.30pm was fine busy later. I think that there is public parking during the day in the centre somewhere but we find it so went to Taormina. We parked in the car park at the bottom of the cable car 10Euros for the day and then paid for 5 sunbeds in Lido Plage opposite... we shouldn't have bothered talk about packed in like sardines 15 euros each for the bed!! We wished that we had bought a umberella and sat with the locals, beach stoney though. We ate at Ristorante Castelluccio ( turn and walk left as you come out of cable car park) very nice.

Would recommend this villa you will not regret it!

Stunning Villa, Perfect Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This is a quite wonderful villa, with all the facilities that you could ask for. The bedrooms and bathrooms are of the highest quality and the pool was magnificent.

The owner and key holder were a pleasure to deal with and nothing was too much trouble for them...Including waiting until well after midnight for us to arrive, after our flight was badly delayed.

A quick tip! The local village has brilliant fish, vegetable & fruit shops, as well as a beautiful bakery....but shop before 11.30am before they close :-)

I can't recommend a stay at this villa highly enough.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Catania at 45 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Trappitello at 500 Metres Nearest Ferry : Catania / Messina at 45 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Il Picciolo Linguaglossa at 30 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : Giardini Naxos at 3 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Trappitello at 500 Metres Nearest Ski : Piano Provenzana, Etna at 40 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Giardini Naxos Recanati at 3 Kilometres Car: recommended

The beaches of Recanati and Giardini Naxos distances less than 2 km from the villa and have a charming promenade and a good range of Lidi (beach clubs offering facilities ranging from restaurants and bars to loungers, umbrellas and water sports).

Taormina is a at 10 minutes drive and Catania and Syracuse are perfect for a day trip. Perched on a rocky promontory high above the sea, Taormina has been the most popular tourist destination in Sicily for hundreds of years.

Beautifully restored medieval buildings, breathtaking views around every corner and a giddy network of winding streets strewn with shops, bars and restaurants make for a perfect holiday spot. Taormina is served by its very own cable car which ferries tourists to and from the seaside resorts down along the coast. Extensive beaches, rocky coves, tiny islands (such as the famous Isola Bella) and sea stacks abound, make this enchanting coastline the favourite place of Sicilians and visitors alike.
