Immense three floors villa with different indoor styles to satisfy any taste.

If you are travelling with a big group search no further. The villa can comfortably host up to twenty people while ensuring everyone's privacy and everywhere WiFi.
Villa del Cavaliere Grillo is located just outside the village of Trecastagni (a cute village 15 km from Catania and 10 km from the coast of Acireale), at the end of a dead end street where you can safely park your cars.
The ground floor of the villa consists of two apartments connected together by a huge living room that leads to the pool.
Both apartments have each three bedrooms, a living room with access to the pool, two bathrooms and very well-equipped kitchens with dishwasher meant for the primary cooking (the villa has other 2 more kitchens).
On this floor there is also a 5th bathroom.
You can access the first floor from either an internal staircase or an external one.
It will open in front of your eyes like a huge cosy space with several wooden features, a fireplace and access to a poolroom and to the panoramic terrace that continue all around the villa.
On this floor you also find 2 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and a basic kitchen with access to the terrace.
On the second and last floor you’ll have an open kitchen with access to a second terrace, two double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a comfortable living room.
In Villa del Cavaliere Grillo you will have plenty of space to relax and eat together inside and outside.
With regard to the pool, the longest part of the pool is 18 m, while the largest part is 8 m. The smaller side of the pool is 80 cm deep therefore it is perfect for children. The rest of the pool goes from 1.20 m to 1.80 m deep.
The village of Trecastagni, perched on the south-eastern flanks of fascinating Mount Etna, is a perfect gateway for exploring not only the looming volcano but also its many interesting towns and villages. There are a great number of excellent walks in the area and many very good restaurants. Coming down from the mountain there are many visits to be made: Taormina, Catania, the Alcantara Gorge and, slightly further afield, Siracusa. Nearby: visit Acireale and the fisherman's villages Santa Maria La Scala and Aci Trezza (10 km) both have pebbled beaches and a small port with vividly painted boats and good restaurants. In summer the villages become a seaside destination for the islanders who enjoy diving off the wooden platforms into the cool Mediterranean waters.

Fantastic space and views
This was a special holiday for our large family of 22 and this accommodation did not disappoint - plenty of room inside and out. Great garden, well maintained, room to hide from the sun or to worship the sun! Perfect pool for all the family. Great views out to the Ionian Sea with Etna looming in the background. Just watch out for the cannon firing on Sunday morning, no ones under attack, just the Church's way of getting people up and to church!
This is an older house and a few glitches here and there, but Enzo was very helpful and provided prompt assistance with any needed maintenance.
This house now holds many fond memories in our hearts. We are so glad we found it.
Outstanding villa in the foothills of Mount Etna
This villa is outstanding and the owners have thought of every need. It really was a aluxury experience. The villa has beautiful views of Mount Etna and out to the ocean. The local village has a lively square with plenty of restaurants, supermarket, bakery, butchers and ice cream parlours. The villa is a great base to explore the region. The villa facilities are really excellent with wvery thing you can imagine catered for. The pool is spacious and refreshing. There are several kitchens and living rooms. We were one family of 7 children and 10 asdults and we had more than enough space with ensuite bathrooms and lovely bedrooms. We visited in mid August when the temperature was +30c, the rooms were well ventilated and the villa was a perfect temperature. It was easy to find the villa about 35 mins from Catania airport with most of the drive being on the motorway. Washing machine, dishwasher and lots of kids toys to entertain the youngsters. We would walk up into the main square from the villla (10 mins walk) and eat at one of the restaurants there. The villa is about 30 mins drive from the cable car for Mount Etna so that was an easy trip. We also visited Accis Castello, the beach at Catania, Acci Trezza and Taorminha - all easy drives from the villa. We had excellent communication from the owners who were only too eager to help make our stay perfect. This is a villa not to miss. A great holiday.
Magnificent villa in amazing location
We booked the villa to put up relatives and friends for our wedding in Sicily. Everyone loved it. Each floor is furnished in a different way with an eclectic collection of artwork on the walls. The 10 bedrooms, numerous bathrooms, 4 kitchens and large reception areas provided plenty of space.The young people took advantage of the facilities - pool table, trampoline, swimming pool and table tennis table. The villa has a gorgeous, well-kept garden with a large swimming pool and amazing views of Mt. Etna smoking at the back and sweeping down to the coast at the front. The garden was a stunning venue for our evening wedding reception for 90 people. The owners were kind and helpful all the time. The villa is within easy walking distance of the town of Trecastagni, and we enjoyed visiting the shops and restaurants there. It was also easy to drive to other interesting places in Sicily like Taormina and Siracusa. I would absolutely recommend this villa to large groups of people. We will remember our stay here for many years to come.
Large, Impressive, and wonderful Villa
The villa is a great place for a holiday in Sicily. It is well located near Etna, the lovely local town of Trecastagni, and reasonable distances to Taormina and Catania. We were met by the lovely family who owned the villa and they took time to show us around. The villa is laid out across four apartments which meant it could be easy to separate into groups. There were 13 of us and we used the whole place as one large house and had no problems. The upstairs rooms have a lovely old style and charm. The kitchen were well equipped. The bedrooms were comfortable and bathrooms clean. Outside, there was a large pool, large balconies, and a wonderful view down the mountain to the sea. It was peaceful and quiet and shady trees for sleeping under.
A wonderful house in very beautiful surroundings
We were three large families spending one week together in this fantastic house. It is perfect for big groups with a lot of space for everybody. The garden is very relaxing with both sun and shade, a large swimmingpool and fantastic views. It was a very warm period when we visited Sicily so were really happy that we stayed in Trecastagni which is situated 500 m above sea level where it was much cooler. The managers where very friendly and helpful and we had no problem with the communication. The property is a bit far from beaches but instead it is close to the places we wanted to visit, such as Etna, Taormina and Siracuse. If snorkeling or diving is on the wish list it is also very good in Acitrezza. Trecastagni had a lot of nice restaurants to offer, no problem even though we where 16 people in the group. I highley recommend this house if you are a big company who want to visit this region of Sicily!
The property is gorgeous. The view is outstanding. We stayed here for almost 14 days. My suggestion is to bring extra towels because they only change them once a week. Other than that the stay was great . The owner was very nice and her son was the ne The owner and his family was very nice. There's only one room with AC.
