Overview

Santa Venerina Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa with private pool, up to 9 Guests; Outhouse on Request, up to 14 Guests

Villa Teresa boasts elegant, spacious interiors that have been lovingly realized and furnished by its owners. The beautiful handcrafted wooden doors and parquet are made of Afrormosia, an exotic hardwood among the most valuable in the world.

Outside is a fabulous private pool, immersed in mature, beautifully designed gardens that are perfect for a relaxing stroll.

The main entrance takes you into an elegant lounge area with huge, panoramic sliding doors. The hallway accesses the spacious dining room, the two kitchens (one inside and the other placed outside, in the glass porch) and a bathroom. A second lounge area accesses the sleeping quarters: three large, comfortable double bedrooms (two of which with en-suite bathrooms), and a triple bedroom, a fourth bathroom and an utility room. One of the double bedrooms accesses a private terrace with views of the Ionian sea as far as Catania and Taormina.Two bedrooms access the porch overlooking the swimming pool.

Beside the pool, there is a charming, large outhouse with three bedrooms, a bathroom and a living room with open kitchen.

The entire property - villa and dependance - can provide accommodations for groups up to 14 adults. Extra baby beds available for up to three babies.

The property is ONLY EVER rented to one group or family at a time, so our Guests can be assured that during their stay they will have total privacy and exclusive use of the pool.

The villa, garden and pool were entirely designed and built by the owners Angelo and Maria Teresa, being the first builder and the second a landscape architect. The furnishings, parquet and finishes in wood, marble and terracotta have been chosen with great care.

The caretaker lives in the basement (which has a private entrance and no shared space with the Guests' area). He accesses the area around the pool, where the villa and the dependance are located, early in the morning or late evening, for ordinary pool cleaning and grass watering, and will be easily available for any requirement.

About Fabio Monaco/Nadia Monaco

My name is Nadia and, together with my brother Fabio and my parents Angelo and Maria Teresa, I am the owner of Villa Teresa. I graduated in Foreign Langueges and Literatures in 2011 and, although cultivating an unbridled passion for travel, I have always been living in Santa Venerina. I love to share my home, this gives me the great privilege to meet different people from all over the world.

Why Fabio Monaco/Nadia Monaco chose Santa Venerina

My father bought our property in 1986. He was enchanted by the beauty of that vast plot of land cultivated with vineyards and citrus groves that offered an unrivaled view and that, despite being in the countryside, was so well connected to neighboring towns.

On the property was a small winery that, once restored, became our home for a few years. Villa Teresa was built between 1988 and 1995, with great dedication and extreme care for details. Me and my family have lived there until 2010.

We share our property and all that it offers with genuine passion, aware and proud of the uniqueness of this place. Guests enjoy total privacy and breathtaking Mt. Etna and sea views in a unique natural setting, between palm trees, flowers and fruit trees.

What makes this villa unique

The luxury villa, garden and pool were entirely designed and built by my parents Angelo and Maria Teresa, being the first builder and the second a landscape architect. The furnishings, parquet and finishes in Afrormosia wood, marble and cotto have been chosen with great care.

Beautiful property with stunning views!

  • 4 of 5
My family and I had a wonderful holiday here. We arrived late afternoon and were welcomed by the family and quickly settled in. The children couldn't resist a late swim in the pool which was a really good size for me and four children. The views to Etna were obscured a little by cloud but the next morning I was totally taken aback by the beautiful view of Etna in one direction and the coast in the other...stunning! The villa was clean and spacious and we quickly relaxed and felt totally at home. In fact we were so relaxed that we really didn't stray far but ate out a few times in Santa Venerina and managed a day trip to Etna. For the more active the villa is well located for lots of day trips. However, we were happy to lie in the sun and make full use of the pool. I would definitely recommend this villa to friends and family. We had a fantastic holiday and look forward to going back one day.

Dear Nadia

First of all I’d like to thank you for the familiar hospitality in Villa Teresa. As you know, we stayed for one week with my wife, sister and brother in law in the small but very friendly village Santa Venerina. From there we could visit lots of beautiful places in Sicilia. Of course we had to rent a car at the airport.
Villa Teresa is really elegant and spacious. The mediterranean property surrounded by a huge garden with swimming pool, rich orchards, olive trees, flowers and silent footpaths were wonderful. From the north-west side of the house we saw Mountain Etna and from the other side of the Villa we had an extreme view to the coastline from Taormina to Catania.

Dear Angelo, Maria Teresa, Fabio, Dario & Nadia,

Please allow me to congratulate you for the simply wonderful property, and the family-run operation and services. We recommend truly your villa for all guests who want to spend a holiday in a luxury surroundings.

Gábor

Absolutely amazing villa!

  • 5 of 5
For a week we stayed with 13 people (including kids) in this stunning villa. There was enough room for everyone with separate bedrooms and bathrooms. The villa, swimming pool and garden were very clean and are even more beautiful than described and expected! You will immediately feel at home thanks to the friendly owners, the enormous space and very cosy and beautiful interior of the house. The garden is very big and well taken care of with lots of flowers and fruit trees. The family is very friendly and helpful and they speak English which can be convenient. The location is very convenient as well for trips to the Etna, Taormina, the beach etc. We will definitely recommend this villa to anyone who wants to see the beauty of Sicily and enjoy a perfect and relaxing holiday. Thank you so much for a great holiday, we will definitely come back!

We would like to thank again this wonderful family for our excellent vacations at their villa! Special regards to Mr Angelo for his sweetest in whole Sicily oranges!
We came to the same property for the second time and never regret it. Nadia and her family are very friendly, helpful, delicate and hospitable. The property is exactly as described, lots of character, spotless clean, very well maintained. The house's construction is interesting. We had party of 12, there were enough space for everyone. The villa is charming, very spacious, beautifully decorated, comfortable. Bedrooms area is separated from living-dining, which is very convenient. Incredible sea view from the living room. Beautiful big pool, garden, where you can taste lemons, oranges, grapes, almonds, grapefruit, etc. Nice place to spend time with kids. Two our girls (11 years) and Alexander (1,5 year) just loved there. Walking distance to grocery, restaurants, Russo bar with excellent marzipan, croissants and cassata. Convenient location to many sightseeings and towns. We would highly recommend villa Teresa to all our friends!

Owner's Response: Victoria and her family are that kind of people that you always wish to have as guests.They took care of our houses, leaving both villa and dependance in perfect order. Despite the recent Etna ash fallout, the parquet was immaculate. Also, it's not easy to meet such kind and likeminded people to have nice conversations with. We look forward to seeing them again. Thank you! Nadia and family

Villa Teresa distance 5 minutes walking distance from the village of Santa Venerina, in which there are restaurants, supermarkets and shops. Santa Venerina is an excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily thanks to its very strategic position halfway between Catania and Taormina. The village distance 5 minutes from the highway A18 Catania-Messina from which (in an average time of 20 minutes) it is possible to reach the most beautiful places of eastern Sicily.

The charming town of Acireale is only 15 km far 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.

The village 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 and its Greek/Roman theatre with a unique view of Mount Etna.Torre Archirafi, Pozzillo and Santa Maria la Scala are pleasant seaside villages near Santa Venerina. The nearest can be found in Praiola (8 km), a wild pebbled beach next to an impressive cliff.

Santa Venerina is also an excellent starting point from which to explore Mount 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 village 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.
