About Nina Schuttert / Giulia Tiriticco / Kirsten Eijkelenboom / Giulia Lattanzio
We have been with Homeaway since 2006, proposing houses that are able to unfold Sicily's colours and charm at best. Houses with quality furnishing in unique locations, with incredible views or with a pool, always accurately selected in order to satisfy our main wish: to see you falling in love with Sicily just like we did. We provide you with transparent information and true pictures. What you see is exactly what you get. We will advise you as much as we can about travel info, transfers and car rental. Dinners in villas and other extra services can also be arranged. Finally, our prices are final rates! There are no hidden additional costs. We are flexible with your arrivals and departures and if you need a late check-in this is usually possible.

Much bigger than the pictures show and great for kids-toddler bed, cot, toys, plastic cutlery etc. We would love to come back!
We had a wonderful 2 week stay at Villa nel Monte. We were made very welcome by Toti and we were left a selection of foods which meant we didn’t have to shop immediately. The villa is very spacious and clean and has everything you possibly need. The grounds are full of olive trees and vegetables growing which we sampled. The villa is in a very good location for visiting places like Taormina and walking into Nicolosi which has a large number of restaurants which are very good and reasonably priced. The view of Etna is amazing and we were lucky enough to go up with a guide. We also met Lydia ( the only female guide on Etna) who was very helpful in suggesting places to visit. Thank you Toti, Lydia and Katia for letting us stay in your beautiful villa.
Lovely villa, even better than the ad!
I spent a fortnight in Villa nel Monte with my family and some friends in August. The villa was even better than the ad suggested - the swings and seesaw delighted my 5 year old and her friend, while the pool and all the pool toys and inflatables kept the 8 year olds entertained. It had probably the best-equipped kitchen I've ever seen in a holiday rental (two different coffee machines and a milk frother!) and definitely the best welcome pack, which meant we didn't have to rush off to the supermarket for the first day. Both Lidia and Toti were very informative, welcoming and responsive. It's just a short walk to Nicolosi from the villa (about 5 mins to the outskirts, 10-15 to the centre) where there are lots of restaurants to choose from, and lots of great sights within an hour's drive. The Aqua Park at Etnaland is hands down the best water park we've ever been to (according to an LA Times article displayed there it's the 15th best water park in the world), and only a 25 minute drive so we went twice. The Adventure Park is another must do for kids - about a 5 minute drive to fantastic treetop climbing (again we visited twice!). All in all, a wonderful villa in a great location,
August 2019 Nicolosi
Had a wonderful time. Perfectly located in the foothills of Etna, great facilities and nicely furnished. Within daytrip reach of some wonderful old cities and coastline including Taormina and Syracuse. The trek to the summit area of Etna was breathtaking.
Beautiful spacious villa in great location
We had a perfect time staying at this villa in Nicolosi. The photos are great but it is even better in person. The house is cool and spacious and finished to a high quality with plenty of room for everyone. There is plenty of space to park with locked gates at the end of the drive.
The photos don't quite show how large the property is - there are lots of places to sit and a herb garden, olive trees and a plum tree. From one place you can see mount Etna clearly from the garden. There is a great barbecue and lots of seating.
The pool is a bit larger than many other villas meaning you can fit three children in it at the same time without them bumping into each other and arguing too much. Which makes sitting around the pool on one of the many loungers even more enjoyable. We brought pool toys for the children. but there are lots of floats and flippers available.
The kitchen is really well stocked meaning you don't have to rush out to buy the small things you need such as salt or oil. They were kind enough to leave us snacks for our first day and a beautiful home made plum cake. They also have lots of different local wines that you can pay for at the end of your stay which makes all the difference after a long flight.
The town itself is perfect if you are looking for a 'proper' Sicilian experience. It is not a tourist destination full of Brits abroad but a real emersion into their culture. The town including numerous restaurants and shops (supermarket, butchers, fishmongers) are just 5 - 10 minutes walk away and not expensive. We ended up eating out most nights because we could feed 5 people including deserts and wine for €65.
The pool and its filter system serve as a perfect insect deterrent meaning we were not hounded by wasps or insect bites! If you get bitten on holiday you'll know the bonus in this.
We were beautifully taken care of whenever we had a question or issue including the family staying up to welcome us at nearly 1 am after a delayed flight and car hire craziness.
Everyone had a perfect holiday and we had many a conversation about how if we won the lottery we would come back every year for 3 months. Thank you for making it a memorable week.
Great Villa near Mt. Etna
We lived our time at Villa Del Monte - Lidia and Totti were very informative and helpful. The treats that greeted us at the Villa were very thoughtful.
The villa had everything we could ask for and is beautifully appointed. There was more than enough room for 7 adults. The grounds are well maintained and we used the pool, BBQ, sitting areas, dinning area and foozball daily. Being able to watch My. Etna while having a coffee or glass of vino and take advantage of a festival in Nicolosi were a bonus.
The location makes it very easy to travel this side of Sicily on day trips.
Would recommend this Villa for large groups or families.
Casa nel Monte is strategically located between the sea and the Etna and at 5 minutes walking from all the shops and restaurants of Nicolosi, a cute village bordering the Etna Park appreciated for the quality of the service that it offers and its authentically Sicilian charm.
Catania, with its Baroque historical centre, shopping streets and colourful fish market, is at only 20 minutes drive. The fascinating towns of Taormina and Siracusa are at only 1 hour driving.
