This villa has been totally renowned in 2018 and is located in Gravina di Catania, at walking distance from the center. It spreads on two levels. We can find 2 bright and spacious double bedrooms, a twins and two bathrooms both with showers. On the ground floor we have a large kitchen area facing the pool and a stylish living room.

The property is a big building split into two units, attached but separated: one side is dedicated to the guests, the other side is the house of the owners.
Of course, the pool is for guests' exclusive use. The owners live there but when guests are present, their presence is very limited because they are very respectful of privacy.

Closest Market: 1 km - Closest restaurant: 1 km - Closest Piazza (or center): 1 km
We are in Gravina di Catania, renowned municipality just a few minutes away from the center of the Catania, but at the same time away from city stress.
From here reaching the sea is a joke: in 15 minutes you will be.
The motorway is just a minute away.
Furthermore, the villa is located in the town center, at wlaking distance from commercial centre (Katanè), shops, bars, banks, typical bakeries, pharmacies, etc. ...
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
By the way: enjoy our great Etna tour!
Catania, with its gorgeous Via Etnea and its outdoor markets, lasts 5 km’s.
I suggest you to parke the car in Piazza Alcalà and then enjoy, by walk, the city: the outdoor fish market, piazza Duomo and the nice via Etnea until the Villa Bellini (public garden).
The Playa (beach) is 10 km's away.
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 70 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 (photo) 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).
