This lovely Sicily villa is located inside an exclusive residence with other three villas only. Spacious and bright the daily life flows in the wonderful living kitchen where one can find a cinema-television, a billiard, a table football and a Sicilian fully equipped kitchen. There are four bedrooms: 3 with private bathrooms (one of these just outside the room). On the exterior the villa is featured by a well-maintained park with many lovely corners where to enjoy your holiday, among many succulents, tropical and Sicilian plants. We also find, in the pool area, a BBQ in typical Sicilian ceramic. The house is just 4 km’s away from Acireale. Enjoy your holiday to Sicily!
MAMMA'S ANGELS TIP (by Diego, who will welcome you at this villa): Have a walk to Santa Maria La Scala through Le Chiazzette, an ancient road carved on a lava flow. Then, taste a granita by the sea.

Closest Market: 1 km - Closest restaurant: 0,5 km - Closest Piazza (or center): 1 km
Acireale lies in a bizzare position, just on the top of a giant lava rock called Timpa.The heart of Acireale is the wonderful Piazza Duomo just a stone's throw from the renowned outdoor fish market. If you have a car, take one of the most stunning Sicilian roads, the SP2 (take it by Bellavista bar), that will lead you to the nice fishermen hamlets of Santa Maria La Scala, Santa Tecla, Stazzo ... ideal for a bath or for a good meal. The roman bath of Santa Venera al pozzo are just in the southern slope of Acireale: worth a visit. Just 5 kilometers away we can find other two great places: Acitrezza and Acicastello, with its Faraglioni (sea stacks).
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 … lasts 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.
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).
