Overview

Catania Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

11 double bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, stunning view, lush garden, close to the sea

The Relais Taormina Country is located in the middle of an immense countryside estate blooming with citrus fruit and Saracen olive trees.

There are in all 11 bedrooms (Queen size or twins as preferred) with their own bathroom ensuite (shower) , 1 large mezzanine in the main house with twins beds and a small bath without shower fit also for 2 adults, 4 small mezzanines in the smaller houses with twins for children from 5 to 13 (without bathroom). Max 24 adults and 6 children.

Two private pools, an exclusive stage, impressive lawns and garden, the green hilltops of Taormina countryside, the Ionian sea and the view of the Etna volcano create an enchanting atmosphere...

A spectacular gazebo in the gardenfit for 30/35 pax is ideal to have meals all together from Easter to November.

There is also a large barbecue area in the lemongrove.

The secret of the property is to be very close to the sea and to the center of Taormina but in the meantime completely away from all in the relax, serenity and charme of the Sicilian countryside.

Extra on request : cooking service (Sicilian home specialities) and daily cleaning.

Ideal for family and friends reunions, weddings and incentives.

The best way to reach the property is to fly to Catania or Comiso (about 1 hour from the property) and hire cars or minivan at the airport (book it well in advance).

In case of landing to the airport of Palermo the distance of the

property from Palermo airport is 250 km by motorway (about 2 hours by car and the airport of Trapani 300 kms (about 3 hours from the property).

The property is 60 km away from the airport of Catania ( motorway ), 2 km from the nearest beach, 2 kms from shops and mini markets, 6 km from the center of Taormina, 30 minutes drive from Etna

(cable way station).

The Villa de Principe

  • 5 of 5

The villa and it's surroundings were so much more than I expected. The staff was extremely attentive to every whim. Dining was fantastic. Proximity to neighboring towns was very convenient. I would recommend this villa to all. The staff makes you feel like family.

I want to go back!

A Spectacular Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our group cannot say enough great things about this estate. Mathew grounds, pools, villa's and main house were better than we could have hoped. Renting something on line, so far away, and for so many people is quite unnerving. Arrival was wonderful and the enjoyment continued. The owner, manager, and staff could not do enough for us. We had functions at the site which only enhanced our stay. The time, effort and cooking were just spectacular. The staff went the extra mile and made our dinners and other functions so memorable.

Yoga and Tea

  • 5 of 5

An amazing stay with amazing hosts. My group of 21 and I stayed on this property for 1 week. The property is so charming and clean and the villas quaint and lovely. The views are indescribable. We did yoga every morning poolside and meditations on the lawn facing Mount Etna. We had a private chef that cooked our breakfast, 1 bbq lunch in the lemon groves and 3 amazing dinners facing Mount Etna. I highly recommend this property to large groups.

Wonderful home base to explore Sicily

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week at Le Case del Principe with a group of 25. It was a wonderful home base for us and allowed us to do day trips to other cities around Sicily. The facilities are comfortable and the land is beautiful. Some days, we just spent at the villa enjoying the pool. The outdoor dining area was my favorite part of the entire place, and it's also where we spent the most amount of time as a group.

My only complaint was about the quality of the kitchens - the appliances were not in great condition (broken dishwasher, stove didn't properly match temperature it was set to, fridge was on a switch and accidentally got turned off one day, etc). This, however, was a minor inconvenience, and we loved our stay overall. I'd certainly recommend going here, especially with a large group.

LE CASE DEL PRINCIPE - exceptional experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a reunion, 24 people. LE CASE DEL PRINCIPE offers exceptional facilities. Located on a huge private estate, but close enough to the vilage and the sea. About 45 min drive from the Catania airport. Swimming pool, gardens, playing areas. All villas nicely decorated. Special thanks to Monica and Maria.
