The area

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

This wonderful villa is located in a strategic and charming position: Valverde, a residential village, among the most beloved ones of the area around Catania.Fresh air, proximity to the center of the town of Valverde, proximity to the most important and big shopping malls of Catania, the motorway only 10 minutes away and the sea at 7 km’s. You can easily go on foot to the amenities: bars, shopping foods of any kind, banks, pharmacies, etc.

In the nearby here it is Viagrande (3 km's) a town 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.

In Viagrande, 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

England (Airbnb)
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa del Limone. The villa is very charming, with plenty of space and privacy. The pool is excellent and facilities are great. The vicinity to local shops and supermarkets was a bonus. Even though the loud music from nearby Jonny's Bar went on until the early hours some nights, we would definitely consider staying here again.
