About the property

Peaceful, private pool, garden, Etna view, terraces, BBQ, Wifi

Homey cottage on the slope of the Etna with a private salt water pool with diving board, a wonderful garden and plenty of spaces where to celebrate your glorious holiday inactivity: in the terrace enjoying the view on the beautiful surroundings, lying down next to the pool, or unwinding under the cool shades of a walnut tree, or in the presence of a romantic Camellia.

Cottage delle Camelie is part of an exclusive residential area of five villas and it is the one with the most privacy. The cottage is at the end of a long path in lava stones where you can park your cars.

On the right side you can access the pool area using stairs or walking through the garden.

On the left side, following a cute little path in lava stones and fruit trees, you access the cottage and its veranda.

The pool boasts salty water, a diving board, a solarium in lava stones and a pool house with changing room with toilet, a microwave, and a fridge where to store your drinks.

Cottage delle Camelie consists of 2 bedrooms (one with a double bed and a pretty wood stove and the other with two single beds), a cozy living room with an open kitchen and a fireplace, 1 bathroom and 1 toilet.

The living has access to the terrace with a beautiful and very old Camellia tree which blooms into a pink cloud between February and April. From the terrace a stair (15 steps) leads to a veranda with a secondary kitchen ideal for outdoor eating.

If you are looking forward to enjoy the Sicilian weather and the slow outdoor life style that it allows, Cottage delle Camelie is the place of your dreams. In winter, the fireplace, the wood stove and the rustic furniture will complete the picture of a cosy and authentic holiday.

The cottage is located just outside the village of Viscalori in Viagrande, a hilltop village of the Catania province, part of the Etna Park, characterised by a microclimate of cool summers and dry winters. The city of Catania with its superb fish-market is at only 10 km. The ski resort of the Etna (Rifugio Sapienza) is at 20 Km. Cottage delle Camelie is strategically located at approximately 3 minutes from the Etna villages ring that facilitates traveling to the center of Catania and to all major highway connections leading, in turn, to all the fascinating Sicilian towns.

Perfect property

  • 5 of 5

We were surprised. The reality was much better then shown on the photos. Beautiful garden, perfect pool and the cottage itself is very cute. We had the luck to see the flowers of the stunning Camelia tree. Would love to come back some day. The second bedroom has a small double (french?) bed. The house is perfect for 2 or 3 persons.

This is a rustic typical Italian cottage with everything you need and more. Very homely .

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was fantastic. The outside kitchen and dining area, great. The gardens just lovely, The pool and pool house, wonderful. The cottage is set in a quiet residential area with good views, lemon trees and fresh vegetables growing all around. When we managed to pull ourselves away from this little piece of heaven we found everyone we came into contact with helpful and friendly. The local villages are well worth the effort, great food and atmosphere.

A car is a must, advice is to book it with insurance and satnav befor you arrive, it will save you money.

We had an amazing holiday and we cannot thank Mari and her friends enough, they we're so helpful and kind, such sincere friendly people.

We so hope to return, what a wonderful experience.

Thankyou Mari

Ein tolles Haus zum relaxen!

  • 4 of 5

Sehr schönes Anwesen mit tollem Grundstück und einem genialen Pool. Alles was es zum relaxen braucht gibt es hier. Sehr sauber alles! Auch mit der Outdoor Küche macht draußen kochen Spaß! Kleiner Abzug wegen der allgemeinen Lage, zu Fuß gibt's nichts in der Nähe. Ansonsten alles perfekt!

joli jardin proche de l'Etna.

  • 5 of 5

Très agréable location.

La maison est très bien placée pour les visites autour de l'Etna, Catane et de Taormine.

Elle est située dans un environnement résidentiel, très calme et entourée d'un grand jardin bien entretenu avec une très grande piscine.

Viagrande est une petite ville très jolie avec quelques commerces.

L'accueil de Mari et David (qui parle français) est très chaleureux.

Nous recommandons cette location.

Een plek om van te dromen!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastisch gerestaureerd antiek huisje. Complete outillage. Heerlijk zwembad in grote, mooie, mediterrane tuin, waarin nog twee barbecuepunten. Gelegen in veilig, groen en rustig resort aan de voet van de Etna. Trecastagni en Viagrande op 5 minuten, Catania, Taormina en de kust op 30 minuten. Rust en stilte na de hectiek van het verkeer.
