About MARIA G.

This villa is very important for my family. As a child, my husband used to play with his friends in this "palmento" (the place where wine grapes are pressed). As an adult he built our house around this "palmento". In this garden, we also celebrated our wedding. Here our children are born and raised. In this house we lived unforgettable moments with our friends, we enjoyed the pool, garden and the barbeque.

Now our children are studying away and we decided to move into town.

MARIA G. purchased this villa in 1980

Why MARIA G. chose Linera CT

The location is very convenient, in the middle of the east coast of Sicily, the panorama is beautiful, on one side there is the majestic Volcano Etna, on the other side you can see the Taormina, the Ionian sea and, with clear sky, Calabria, Catania's coast.

What makes this villa unique

I want my guests during their holidays living the joy, happiness and serenity that this home has always given to those who have lived there

Beautiful villa and amazing host

  • 5 of 5

The villa itself and the grounds are beautiful. Behind closed gates you are secluded and safe under the gaze of Mount Etna on one side and the see and a view of Italy to the other. Maria is an unbelievable host who made sure everything we needed we had. She even bought us a stair gate as we have a two year old. Maria is responsive, friendly and extremely helpful and everything we asked for she made sure we were 100% happy. A privilege to stay in such a beautiful and classic home, thank you so much Maria x

A wonderful family home with great character, lots of quirkiness and a welcoming ambience.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a Sunday and had chosen not to hire a car, Maria had organised a taxi from the airport which was great as we would not have found the property easily. We had not realised that the local shops aren’t open on a Sunday but Maria very kindly drove me to a supermarket so that we were stocked up! Maria was easy to get in touch with and also helped us to organise taxis to Mt Etna and other sightseeing.

We have two daughters nine and twelve who adored the pool, the chess table, and the “Disney channel! The local butcher was superb, the supermarket was really well equipped, excellent bakery, the pharmacy was also really useful and all within walking distance. The washing machine was also really handy. The photos on the web page really do not do the house justice, it is in an amazing location and the views of the coast and Mt Etna are truly awesome!

Beautiful house and garden with fabulous views

  • 4 of 5

We had a week at the beginning of October and the weather was awful for 4 days with torrential rain. Fortunately the house is so large and well appointed that we were still able to have a good time. But when the sun came out it was perfect!

Do it! You will not regret this!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful grounds, house totally sufficient for your wants with an Italian flavour. We were two ancient creatures (70+), three in their 30's and two untamed monsters 5 and 2 years of age. Everyone was satisfied. Pictures do not really do it justice. Maria, the owner, is warm and helpful- impossible not to like her. The pool is something you could live in, could not feel any chlorine at all. The house is a soup of contrasts, 3 bedrooms large-medium- and small. All fine. Kitchen has all the cooking utensils you could want, table is a bit unsteady due to different levels but there is a great one outdoors and another elegant setting by the old wine press. Plenty of sofas, the largest one has cushions that tend to slide but could also be seen as a challenge. Linera pizzeria worthy of your patronage, 6 Euros for a normal size pizza. Cheap! The local bakery down the hill you could spend hours in and there is a fair sized grocery store less than a 100 meters away from there. So, without further ado, our highest recommendations! Jack, Nini, Kristoffer, Andrea, Gabriella, Edgar and Henning.

An excellent property in a great location for exploring the East Coast and Mount Etna.

  • 5 of 5

We've just a had a brilliant stay at this property with our 2 children (aged 9 and 6).

This is a Lovely property with plenty of space both inside and out. It is well appointed and very comfortable with ample equipment for self catering / dishwasher / washing machine. It was well maintained and clean, with a cleaner coming in twice a week. The pool is nice and large, and there is lots of room for relaxing either in the sun or shade with views over the coast or Mount Etna. The table tennis table and basketball hoop were an added bonus.

The local town has a small supermarket, and we also used the local shops for bread, fruit and veg etc. It is well situated to get into a range of small towns, the major tourist sites along the coast, and for exploring Mount Etna.

The owner, Maria, was really helpful. She met us at the property and had kindly helped to get us some provisions in for our arrival. She was also contactable by text for any queries, and sent us details of local festivals etc that we might like to visit.

Overall an excellent property that we wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
