The villa is located in the beautiful and picturesque little town of Centuripe, one of the most important Roman settlements of Sicily.

In Centuripe worth a visit the wonderful archeological museum.

The past of Centuripe is of exceptional importance, as evidenced by, among other things, the numerous archaeological sites scattered throughout its territory, city center and surrounding areas: necropolis, thermal ruins, furnaces for ceramics, medieval castles, Hellenistic houses ...

Centuripe is called "The balcony of Sicily" due to its position that allows one of the most unparalleled views of Etna volcano.

Etna Park (Unesco’s), with its inactive volcanos (the sons of Etna), caves, forests, lava grounds … it's 40 km’s away

We suggest you to enjoy our Etna tour, the most requested in Sicily

Catania, with its gorgeous Via Etnea and its outdoor markets, it's 40 km’s away

The Playa beach it's about 40 kms away

Taormina, the pearl of Sicily, is almost 60 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 worldwide renowed Greek-Roma ruins it’s almost 100 km’s away.

You can't miss the visit of Morgantina (50 kms), an archeological site with ruins of a Greek theatre, houses with mosaics, the Bouleterion, the Macellum, the Agorà. Few kilometers away from Morgantina, in Aidone, you can also pay a visit to the very important archeolgical museum.

It’s 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 (photo)!

And, of course, fish, fish, fish … and visit the outdoor fish markets (Riposto, Acitrezza, Catania).

Wat een prachtige villa! Mooie ruime kamers, zeer veel badkamers, heerlijke keuken en prachtige terrassen en tuin. We hebben elke dag vers geperste sinaasappelsap gedronken van de sinaasappels uit de boomgaard. Het was heerlijk om ' s avonds de Etna te zien gloeien en de uitzichten waren aan alle kanten prachtig. Het is een heerlijk rustige omgeving! Het zwembad was koud, maar prima voor de kids. De service was prima. We hadden alleen de pech dat we een paar borden en 1 glas gebroken hebben, wat een forse inhouding op onze borg opleverde. Verder een aanrader! Wel een huurauto nodig!
