The area

By Giovanni Vallone (President of MammaSicily, writer, author)

Viagrande was the place were, in the past, aristocratic families used to spend their summer holidays.

This is way, presently, we can still admire wonderful properties along this small and charming town, full of lush vegetation.

I suggest you two walkings: Monte Serra, an extinct crater of the past, where you can enjoy the Butterfly museum or where one can have a pic-nic in the nice park or climb up to the top; and the public garden of Viagande, a great spot for pets, adults and children

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 tipi s 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).

Reviews

I don't often write reviews however such was our wonderful experience staying at Il Mirto e La Rosa in June 2017 I felt compelled to share. The people who managed the villa were superb starting with Giuseppe who answered all queries prior to arrival in a timely, helpful manner. On arrival Diego and his companion welcomed us and went the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable. We met the charming owner Signor Di Stefano, a perfect host, and Mama Sicily director Giovanni dropped by towards the end to ensure we had enjoyed our stay. I have nothing but praise for all who acted professionally but with a personal touch and left a warm impression of the Sicilian people. The villa itself is every bit as stunning as the photos suggest with so many positive aspects.We enjoyed several barbecues there in the wonderful June climate. The 1st floor terrace was a particular pleasant feature to be enjoyed during the day and evening for a bit of quiet away from the pool during the day or to enjoy a drink in the evening. The pool was perfect and we made the most of it day and night with lighting in the evening making it a added visual treat. The gardens offered space but also function. My son and I had a football pitch with goals either end to enjoy ! There is a citrus grove offering fruit and a vineyard to add to the grandeur. Inside the villa the decor is very tasteful whilst at the same time very comfortable and cooking fans will love the kitchen which is perfect for a chef its so well appointed. On location you are in the outskirts of Viagrande which is a reasonably sized town with its own charm and whilst you would need a car,(no footpath most of way from villa to town), we found the villa to be well situated as a base to see the best of the east coast, (we made trips to Etna, Taormina,Savoca, Siracusa and Aci Trezza, all easy to reach). Anyone interested in staying should feel confident that they will find a superb package contained here. Every aspect was perfect. There is so much to say about this property but to sum up there is no higher praise than to say we really didn't want to leave and definitely aim to return. Book with Complete Confidence.
