The area

By Giovanni Vallone (writer, journalist, President of Il Console Association)

Closest Market: 1 km - Closest restaurant: 1 km - Closest Piazza (or center): 1 km

 

Valverde (photo, 1 km) is a nice town, among the favourite one to live for Catanesi people.

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.

Don' miss our Etna tour (photo), the most requested in Sicily a familiar-friendly experience that will allow you to have a real vision of Etna.

Catania is 8 km's away. I suggest you to park the car in Piazza Alcalà than have a walk: let's start from the worldwide famous Pescheria (photo, outdoor fish market), then to Piazza Duomo (the hearth of Catania) and from it take the Via Etnea, the main street of the town, a pedestrian walking full of shops, cafe and wonderful buldings in Baroque style. Let's walk for about a kilometer, visiting the Roman amphitheatre (in Piazza Stesicoro) until arrive to the Villa Bellini (Catania's public garden).

The Playa (beach) lasts 10 km’s and is close by Piazza Duomo. In this area there are many lido (private beaches where you can rent umbrellas, deckchairs, have a meal in a cafe ...) and I suggest you to enjoy the Lido Verde, partner of MammaSicily.

Other places worth a visit are Acitrezza and Acicastello (5 km’s), both fishermen hamlets, where lava flow of millenia ago has modelled the landscape: in Acicastello you can find a stunning castle in lava stone overhanging the sea and in Acitrezza the Faraglioni (photo, 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 (photo, 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  spot, 40 km), Brucoli (sea village, 40 km), Megara Ibla (archaeology, 50 km), Randazzo (nice town, 40 km), Giardini Naxos (sea, 30 km), Cavagrande del Cassibile (nature, 60 km).

 

 

Its 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!

Of course, we suggest you to enjoy our Silvana's Cooking Class (photo), just few kilometers away from the villa.

And, of course, fish, fish, fish …

“A great villa and a fantastic week spent in Sicily. The pool and extensive patio is a huge bonus. Giuseppe was very quick to respond to all questions and a pleasure to deal with, as was Lorenzo who was very helpful at check-in. Big shout out to Angela, Pino and everyone at Bar Jonny’s too!! Shame to be leaving!”

Ein sehr schönes großzügiges Haus mit viel Platz, wir waren 2 Wochen mit 8 Personen, Baby und Hund da. Sehr zu empfehlen!

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.
