COTTAGE WITH POOL AND SEA VIEW ON THE FLANKS OF MOUNT ETNA

Santa Venerina Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 8, pool, terrace

Casa Mareneve lies just outside the village of Santa Venerina, on the crossroads among Taormina, Catania, Mount Etna and the sea. Casa Mareneve consists of two separate units that are joined together by a covered terrace and a pergola of grape vines that offer very pleasant shade in summer. The first unit is a one-room apartment with a large window, fireplace, couch, sofa bed, double bed, bathroom (shower, toilet), dining table, kitchen and pizza oven. From the kitchen you have access to the terrace that is next to the other unit. This apartment consists of a large living room with a double sofa bed, kitchen, dining table, fireplace, bathroom (bath, bidet, toilet), a double bedroom and a small single room. The pool (10 x 5 m, between 1 and 3 meters deep) is open from 1st April to the end of October and is for the exclusive use of the guests. The pool is located next to a terrace in Eolian style, which overlooks the sea and the beautiful garden with palm trees and Mediterranean flowers. There is also a little toilet next to the pool.

The presence of fireplaces and a wood stove make Casa Mareneve also suitable for a stay in low season.

Casa Mareneve is an ideal base to visit a greater part of Sicily. Santa Venerina has an old town center, shops and some restaurants. The villages Zafferana, Milo, Fornazzo and Sant'Alfio are higher on the Etna and are worth visiting. The larger town Acireale (5 km) is situated above the sea and has a square with magnificent churches and cozy shopping streets. In the nearby fishing village of Santa Maria La Scala, Torre Archirafi and Aci Trezza there are good seafood restaurants. Local bathers come during summer to dive into sea from the wooden terraces that are installed on the rocky.

The gardens and pool area were absolutely lovely with lots of shade and sitting areas but I feel most holidaymakers would prefer sunloungers to the chairs provided. This would give guests the chance to put their feet up and get an all over tan (both front and back). In addition, I think a few inexpensive facilities inside the house could immensely add to the comfort of visitors. In particular, an electric kettle, wine glasses, mugs, local maps and perhaps a 'house book' with recommendations for restaurants, supermarkets, etc (usually supplied by other owners) would enhance staying at the house. The fridge was also a bit 'tatty' and could do with replacement. On the plus side there was plenty of storage, the house was very clean and we received a very warm welcome from the owner's daughter.

The house is located on a very quiet road on the outskirts of town and is conveniently near the motorway. The town is not that attractive and lacks good restaurants but there are many places to visit nearby.

Santa Venerina
Car: necessary

Santa Venerina is a perfect base from which to explore eastern Sicily. The village lies halfway between Catania and Taormina and just 15 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.
