Overview

About the property

The "Villa del Sole" is situated in a calm and familiar atmosphere, perfect for adults and children, furnished with taste and functionality and with sight on the sea and on the volcano Etna.

It is divided in 6 independent apartments for 4/5 persons each.

You can so book a single apartment (Ref.Nr.223.830, Nr. 223.900, ...) or even more than one at the same time (Ref.Nr.223.902).

Each apartment has a wide living-room with kitchen, a bathroom with shower, a bedroom, a balcony and all the comforts specified; everything new, just bought.

Dipped in the gardens of the "Riviera dei Limoni", surrounded by the typical Mediterranean vegetation (ficodindia. olives and lemon-trees, ...), our "Villa del Sole" looks in the est on the marvelous Ionic-sea (at 500 m) and in the west on the impressive mount Etna, the biggest active Volcano of Europe (30 minutes by car).

So you can ideally alternate your trips at the discovery of our beautiful island with the relax in the wonderful climate of Sicily: swimming on the villa's pool, on the sea (pebbly and rocky beach), diving, fishing, ..., excursions on the mountain (by foot, horse, ... ski), visits of the many historical, cultural and touristic sites (Acirale 5 km, Catania 25 km, Taormina 30km, ...), shopping on the typical marketplaces open every day (fish, fruits and vegetables, local crafts, cloth, ...), trips along the vine streets, culinary routes, golf, ...

At the end there is always the "Villa del Sole" waiting for you!

  • 5 of 5

"We were a group of friends from Denmark/Spain - 4 adults and 6 children - who stayed for 9 days at end of June. It was a perfect place for kids, big pool and nice garden and surroundings - in general very good for families. We relaxed a lot by the pool, and went on nice trip at the end of the day. Lots of things to see close by.

The place had a big kitchen which we used a lot, in fact did not use the kitchen in app. at all. Everything was clean and worked well. "

  • 5 of 5

"We had the most lovely week in Sicily and in Villa del Sole. Everything was as promised, even better. The pictures posted at this site don't really do the real honour they should. The Villa is much much better than in the pictures.

We were a group of 20 just wanting a quiet, clean and relaxing athmosphere for our stay and Villa del Sole proved perfect for that. Even with a big crowd there was no lack of space and we fit in nicely.

I could recommend own trasportation even though basic need can be satisfied within a walking distance (minimarket, farmacy, beach, restaurant). We had only one car to ease our stay but that was sufficent, since walking didn't bother us.

All in all our whole group could recommend Villa de Sole to any one of our friends and family! A really beautiful place with a spectacular view to Etna and the sea. We wish we could have stayed an another week!"

  • 5 of 5

"Lovely!!!!

With kids self catering is a great way of living.

This house with a closed garden and a big pool is perfect for kids to play in. And a lovley retreat for all after a long sightseeing day. Or as my son put it: half a day of sightseeing is enough then we can stay "home" for the rest of the day...

The apartment are really nice and when you can´t have your breakfast at the balcony there is plenty of space in the kitchen. The host couple where so nice and generous.

We were there in beginning of june and though the pool was chilly we still had some good swims and the garden was full of lemons...a dream to return to."

Car: recommended

1)Take the highway A18 Catania-Messina and leave it at Acireale.

2)After the tollgate, drive on the ring road of Acireale/via C.Colombo until the end (for about 3,6km), following the indication for the "SS114".

3) Once reached the "SS114" (viale Ionio), turn right in direction of Catania and drive on it for about 2,4km. On the roads board you see the kilometer indications (78 I, 78 II, 78 III, ...). About 100 meters after the kilometer sign 80 (blu panel), you will find a traffic light that allows you: to follow straight on in direction of Catania, turn right into the city center of Acireale or turn left (you won't see the indications) in direction of Santa Maria La Scala/ Santa Tecla/ Scillichenti/ Riposto.

4) Turn left and drive on the SP2 (strada provinciale per Riposto) for about 3,9 km, always following the indications for Riposto (passing the road fork for Santa Maria la Scala and crossing the village of Santa Tecla). Once you pass the restaurant "Santa Tecla Tower" (on the left) you will find our via Longi as the second road-fork on the right (immediately aver a street panel with the indication "50"-"Abitato"). If you reach the welcome-panel of the village of Scillichenti, than you just missed the road-fork and you have to turn just 100 meters back.

5) Take via Longi and follow the rectilinear just at the end (for about 100 meters); on your left side you find the big green gate with the Nr.7 - Here you are, at the "Villa del Sole" - Wellcome!!!

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

==================================================

You can also find our "Villa del Sole" also with "Google-Earth". Just search for "via Longi Acireale" and Google will position itself on a small house on the via Longi. In front of that you find the entrance gate to the villa.

The "Villa del Sole" itself is the alone standing building, just north of the point indicated by Google (with the windows on the roof and the dig of the swimming-pool on the north of the villa).
