Gorgeous Sicily villa fully immersed in a forest, overlooking the Ionian sea. There are 4 double bedrooms, 1 twin and 1 suite with a double bed and a single bed. Each bedroom with en-suite. Astonishing the view from the two living rooms: the blue ocean is facing in front of you ! The kitchen has two marble table, ideal for cooking. The exterior, more than 2 hectares of land, shows many lovely corners. The infinity pool is just in front the main façade of the villa and here you can find a solarium with many deckchairs and a gazebo with a lounge. But it’s impossible to describe the entire property without missing something. Pictures, maybe, will better show our abode that is located in the eastern slope of the Etna park.
MAMMA'S ANGELS TIP (by Luca, who will welcome you at this villa): Piazza Sant'Alfio in Trecastagni, is one of my favourite place where to read a book. This villa is very big and the owner a bit crazy! But a very nice and friendly person. Write Luca if you need more tips: firstname.lastname@example.org

Trecastagni is among the nicest town in Etna park, renowned for its aristocratic architecture.
Piazza Marconi is the heart of the town where you can spend lovely moments.
Through the characteristic narrow alleys, have a walk until the mother church of San Nicola, where you can enjoy a gorgeous view of the Ionian coast.
We are in the eastern side of Sicily, and two masterpieces dominate the landscapes; the sea and Etna volcano, joined by something bigger thant them: the blue Sicilian sky!
Etna Park (Unesco’s), with its inactiv volcanos (the sons of Etna), caves, forests, lava grounds … lasta 10 km’s
Catania, with its gorgeous Via Etnea and its outdoor markets, lasts 10 km’s.
The Playa (beaches) too lasts 10 km’s.
I suggest you to get a visit to Acitrezza and Acicastello (5 km’s), fishermen hamlets, where the lava flow has painted a castle and basalt giants (sea stacks).
Taormina, the pearl of Sicily, is almost 30 km’s away: it’s a magic place with the amazing Isolabella and its narrow streets rich in history, a sort of vintage atmosphere and fashion: cool!
Siracusa (Unesco’s), and its Greek masterpieces it’s almost 60 km’s away.
Another tips is the visit of Pantalica (Unesco’s), with its more than 3000 graves carved on the rock, a river, a forest and a sort of mistery all around.
At a glance: Acireale (Baroque style, 5 km), Savoca (The Godfather movie’s spot, 40 km), Brucoli (sea, 40 km), Megara Ibla (archaeology, 40 km), Randazzo (40 km), Giardini Naxos (sea, 30 km), Cavagrande del Cassibile (nature, 60 km)
Its time to eat something and my tip is to do not miss the Pasta alla Norma and to have, at least once, a typical Sicilian breakfast: granita and brioche!
And, of course, fish, fish, fish … and visit the outdoor fish markets (Riposto, Acitrezza, Catania).
