Description from owner


Villa EtnAmare is situated up on a hill overlooking the green East coast of Sicily, between Mount Etna and the Ionian sea. The building is divided into 4 units (Geranio, Glicine, Girasole and Gelsomino) each with independent access and private terrace or garden.

Availability and photos on this website refer to the "Geranio" apartment, consisting of a double bedroom, a triple bedroom, a bathroom and a large living room/kitchen with a sofa-bed.

Geranio offers a private garden with sea view.

The property is surrounded by a fenced land of five hectares with rich orchards, olive trees, flowers and silent footpaths. The enormous swimming pool (25x8m) is open all year round. On the basement there is a covered parking.

Villa EtnAmare lies only 500 meters away from Santa Venerina, a village famed for the production of sweets and liqueurs. The 'Pasticceria Russo' is well-known for the production of 'cornetti al miele' (croissants filled with honey), marzipan fruit and almond pastries. In walking distance there are restaurants, supermarkets and shops. villa EtnAmare is an excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily, thanks to its very strategic position halfway between Catania and Taormina. The property distance 5 minutes with the car from the highway A18 Catania-Messina from which (in an average time of 20 minutes) you can reach the most beautiful places of Eastern Sicily, such as Taormina, Catania, Acicastello, Acitrezza, Acireale, Etna, Siracusa, Giardini Naxos...The charming baroque town of Acireale distance only 15 km from Santa Venerina. It is situated next to the 'Riviera dei Ciclopi', a unique coast with a crystal clear sea and lava stacks (faraglioni) which is believed by Greek mythology to correspond to the stones thrown by blind Polifemo to Ulysses.The Riviera traditional resort towns of Acicastello and Acitrezza have long been a magnet for local day trips and offer arguably the best Granita to be found anywhere and lots of good seafood trattorias. Catania, with its rich architectural heritage, its vibrant markets, restaurants and shops, is only 30 minutes away from the village.The east coast Ionian Riviera has some of Sicily's most picturesque pebbly and sandy beaches including those of Isola Bella, Giardini Naxos and Letojanni (below Taormina).Santa Venerina is just 25 km from Gardini Naxos and 30 km (20 minutes with the highway) from Taormina, which draws more visitors than any other town in Sicily, thanks to its splendid position, its elegant shops, and its theatre with a unique view of Mount Etna. Torre Archirafi and Santa Maria la Scala are pleasant seaside villages near Santa Venerina. The nearest beaches can be found in Praiola, Stazzo and Pozzillo (8 km).Villa EtnAmare is also an excellent starting point from which to explore Mt. Etna and its surroundings. The towns and villages that dot the flanks of Etna, such as Zafferana Etnea,Trecastagni and Randazzo, are well worth stopping off for a visit to their seventeenth century churches built in lava stone or for a spot of lunch in restaurants offering delicious local products. The property is only 4 km away from Zafferana Etnea and 10 km from Rifugio Sapienza, the main ski area, where it is possible to take the Etna cableway, up to the main craters.The sun of Sicily holds the record in Europe and maintains a mild climate throughout the year. Spring is the ideal time to enjoy the culture and nature that this island has to offer. The interior is spectacular, with the mountain slopes exploding in color, while on the coast the first bathers start taking to the beaches. In autumn, many towns around Etna organize festivals dedicated to local products such as wine, mushrooms and sweets. The sea water is still warmed by the summer sun, and the daytime temperature still reaches 30°c during the warmest hours.
