Overview

Santa Venerina Villa Rental Photos and Description

14 people, swimming pool and garden, beautiful view of Mount Etna and the sea

The villa is tastefully decorated with furniture of high quality. There are two floors covering a total of over 200 m². The ground floor consists of a lounge, a kitchen with dining table and sitting area, a bedroom with double bed and two single beds and en-suite bathroom with hydro massage bath, toilet and bidet. There is also a separate bathroom with a toilet and shower. On the first floor there are four bedrooms all with en-suite bathroom (toilet, bidet and shower) and double beds. Two of the four bedrooms have 2 extra single beds for a total of 14 beds. The garden and the terraces are decorated with beautiful furniture and all enjoy beautiful views on the sea and Mount Etna.

One half the property is used as holiday accommodation while the owners live in the other half. The pool (12 x 6 m and 2.20 cm deep) is open from April 1st until the end of October and is for the exclusive use of guests.

The villa remains cool during the hot Sicilian summer thanks to its hill top position and an aeration system.

The presence of central heating makes the property ideal for a winterstay.

In Santa Venerina is also possible to rent bicycles. The cost is about 10 euro for 1 day.

Attractive villa but either dome issues

  • 3 of 5

Large villa. Clean and attractive inside and outside. Great pool but it needed to be cleaned more often as there was ash in it most days. There is no air conditioning and the villa is uncomfortably hot at night.

The bedrooms and bathrooms are lovely but for a villa this size the sitting room area is inadequate.

We enjoyed our stay but we have stayed in better equipped villas for the same amount of money.

Owner's Response: Ash in the pool is a problem we have in the Etna area. Being the most active vulcano in Europe it releases often ash and it is not easy to get it out of the pool. In act pool systems in this area of Sicily lasts not very long. The ash destroys also the pool motor. The sitting room is quite small but the kitchen is very big and outside are a lot of sitting areas, also shaded areas.

Great villa in superb location

  • 5 of 5

The villa was clean & well equipped, Owners who live next door are friendly & helpful. The views are superb with Etna on one side & ocean on the other, nice big pool. Just half an hour easy drive from airport it's really easy to travel around the area on a growing, good motorway system(compared with UK anyway!). The town which is a few minutes drive but fair walk has 3 great restaurants plus excellent patisserie & supermarket. Would love to return .

Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 5 couples who spent a wonderful week at Villa Mareneve. The villa and the grounds at the foot of Mt. Etna are simply beautiful. The bedrooms were lovely with modern bathroom facilities and walk-out to terrace. The kitchen was spacious and we enjoyed all the delicious meals prepared by the chef, Graziella. She cooked for us on three occasions with enough left overs for the following days. The owners couldn't have been more helpful. They went out of their way to respond to any questions. Do not hesitate to book this villa. We loved every minute of our stay and are sure you will also.

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

Ten friends from NY & Florida recently spent a week at this beautiful villa. The facilities were topnotch given that the building is only 3 1/2 years old, and the location at the foot of Mt. Etna was not too far from the highway. The owners were extremely accommodating and available to answer our questions. They arranged for a cook at a ridiculously low price to prepare dinner for us upon our arrival and we were so pleased we had her return two additional times. All in all, a fabulous place to stay. Do not hesitate about booking Villa Mareneve!!!

Une maison de rêve idéalement placée.

  • 4 of 5

La maison est parfaite et correspond à l'annonce sur internet. Elle est très récente, dispose de cinq chambres et cinq salles de bains, l'ameublement est de grande qualité, la maison est très propre à notre arrivée. Nous avons cependant regretté l'absence de climatisation indispensable la nuit en Sicile.

L'extérieur est extraordinaire, une grande terrasse couverte permet de prendre les repas, une terrasse ensoleillée, une piscine très spacieuse et très propre. La vue est inoubliable (un côté mer, un côté Etna). La villa est bien située à une dizaine de km de la mer, à 30 mn de Taormine et de l'Etna.

Nous avons eu un gros problème à l'arrivée qui ne relève pas des propriétaires. Une mauvaise fiche nous a été donnée avant de partir avec les coordonnées d'une autre maison et d'un autre propriétaire, nous avons alors appelé into Sicily qui ne nous a jamais rappelé. Nous nous sommes donc retrouvés sans location, dans un pays étranger, sans un service d'appui pour nous aider. Vu le prix de la location et la part que prend le site dans la location (plus de 1000 euros), nous avons vraiment été déçu. Nous avons du nous débrouiller par nos propres moyens pour trouver les coordonnées de la maison que nous avons trouvé sur un autre site internet. Nous aimerions avoir une explication de l'intermédiaire à ce propos car nous sommes très mécontents de cette situation. Merci de nous répondre s'il vous plait.

ottimo

  • 5 of 5

ho passato insieme ad altre quattro coppie di amici, alcune con figli, vacanze bellissime. L'Etna ci ha salutato con una breve eruzione appena arrivati. La villa è molto bella e confortevole, i proprietari molto gentili e disponibili a soddisfare ogni nostra esigenza. La villa, dalla quale è possibile vedere da una parte il mare e dall'altra l'Etna, è situata in un punto strategico per visitare la parte orientale della Sicilia.

Santa Venerina is an excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily. The village lies halfway between Catania and Taormina and just 8 km from Acireale (a pretty little city, built on a plateau of lava, that is known for its Baroque churches). Gardini Naxos, a seaside resort with a sandy beaches, is just 25 km from Santa Venerina (15 minutes with the highway). Next to Giardini Naxos we find Taormina 'the pearl of the Mediterranean' and the most exclusive seaside resort in Sicily. Its ancient Greek theatre is world famous for its extraordinary panoramic views. Pozzillo, Santa Maria la Scala are Aci Trezza are pleasant seaside villages near Santa Venerina. The nearest can be found in Praiola (7 km), a wild pebbled beach next to an impressive cliff.
