House A.G.A.T.A. - discovering Sicily starting from Arcile

Bedrooms 3
Space 140 m²
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

The house A.G.A.T.A. is situated in a calm and familiar atmosphere, furnished with taste and functionality, with a supreme sight on the sea and the below swimming pool, dipped in the Mediterranean typical vegetation: palms of large stalk, oleander, plants of ficodindia...

It shows itself on the wonderful sea of the beautiful bay, which is not distant than a few steps.

From the splendid terraces you can admire the charming rise and setting of the sun on the horizon of the sea, with the Etna as background.

The house A.G.A.T.A. is an optimal base for a lot of excursions (short and long once):

Brucoli, typical small fishermen village, is distant just a few minutes by car; here and in the other small villages around you can taste the delicious specialties of Sicily: granite, arancini, the cakes made of almonds and pistachio nuts... and obviously plenty of fish dishes.

Numerous other localities are just half an hour away:

Catania, this baroque city with its typical fish market and the daily open general market, its wonderful, rich city-centre, that keeps animated all the night.

Taormina, less than an hour away, the famous pearl of the tourism in Sicily.

The Etna, the most important active volcano of Europe, witch offers fascinating excursions on foot and on funicular and obviously, but single twenty minutes far, the wonderful

Siracusa, ancient Greek city, with its wonderful artistic patrimony and archaeological museum;

And … and … and ….

Deperate in Sicily

  • 5 of 5

Andrea came to our rescue when our agriturismo did not work out for us. We needed a place to stay for a week and we were desperate. Andrea was super accommodating and met us to show us the route to the house as it is in a gated and secluded area. The house was beautiful with a gourmet kitchen, BBQ, view of the sea and three bedrooms. The bathrooms were great too. Andrea was very charming as were his three wonderful children. He also speaks English which helped. This was off season so we were very fortunate to get this lovely place and location. I'm remiss in not having done this review earlier, my apologies to Andrea.

What a fantastic place to get away. It was exactly as described and the owner (Andrea) could not have been nicer or more accommodating. The villa is very well maintained and equipped, and I would highly recommend this place for anyone who is visiting the area. My only regret was we couldn’t stay longer, but had to get back to the real world. However, we will be back.

"A perfect place to spend...

  • 5 of 5

"A perfect place to spend a week at leisure and well situated to explore the surrounding area.

A beautifull vila with all you need at hand.

The owners gave us an exeptionally warm welcome and made us really feel at home. The beach has pebbles, with, on clear days, stunning views on Etna. A pity the pool was not open yet (only in July & August) but the beach was only 100mtrs.

A 4 km walk over the hill to the lovely village of Brucoli where you can do some shopping and have great meals. Real nice atmosphere there and very lively on sunday when mainly the Sicilians have a day out. Great trips in the area to Etna, Noto, Siracusa, Caltagirone, Piazza Armerina (don't forget the Roman villa and famous mosaïcs) In the evening we spent many a pleasant hour on the roof terras, barbequing, enjoying the sunset and moonrise. In short: a perfect stay for an acceptable price. Thanks Andrea and also thanks to your parents."

"Maison tres bien située ...

  • 5 of 5

"Maison tres bien située dans une baie privée, avec plage à 2 pas, avec gazon/galets/rochers et douches.

Piscine immense pour la joie des petits et des grands

Maison tres grande, fonctionnelle, avec terasses magnifiques.

Un seul regret: pas de clim.

Propriétaire sur place et aux petits soins avec ses hotes.

Das war Urlaub!!

  • 5 of 5

Wir, eine Familie mit 10 Erwachsenen haben Haus A.G.A.T.A. und ein weiteres Domizil in der Anlage gemietet. Wir fanden alles so, wie es uns in der Vorbereitung angekündigt war. Das Haus ist sauber, gut ausgestattet und in einem ruhigen, gepflegten Umfeld. Andrea und seine Familie waren immer hilfsbereit und zuvorkommend. Gerne wieder!

Car: necessary

1) From Catania, take the SS114/E45 for Siracusa and follow it until reaching km 125,6, where you can change to the SP57 Brucoli-Carlentini (just after a bridge). 2) Take the SP57 in direction of Brucoli and drive on until reaching the rectilinear at km-stone 12 (a blue road-sign on the right side). At the end of this rectilinear (approximately at km 12,4), the SP57 turns strongly to the right (with typical road-sign of black-white arrows), and just in that curve, on the left, the crosspiece is found that leads to the "Bay of Arcile" (if you reach a narrow bridge, where you can pass only one car a time, then you went about 300 meters to far). 3) Follow this private road without outlet, admiring the panoramic view (the bay, the sea and on the background Catania with the Etna), until the end – that’s it, you got to the access-gate of the complex of "Baia di Arcile". 4) Now 100 meters on, on your right side, at the N°15 you find our house A.G.A.T.A. - Welcome!!!

Detailed information about places to visit, useful addresses, manifestations, events, typical restaurants and pubs, excursions, e.s.o., will be offered by the owners on place.


P.S.: You can also find our house A.G.A.T.A. with "Google-Earth". Just search for "Cozzo dei Turchi". You will find a hill with this name, and just next (in north-east/ sea direction) you will find a group of houses around a swimming-pool (that on the photo appears green) – that is the pool of the complex of "Baia di Arcile". Our house A.G.A.T.A. is the second one of the row of houses next to the pool; you recognize the wide roof-terrace (on the photo bluish) between two big, red tile roofs.
