Valverde

Sleeps 8 | Bedrooms 4 | Bathrooms 5 | Near Catania, Sicily

Independent villa | Private pool | Maid included |

Overview

From its hilltop position Valverde calmly surveys a seascape that includes Taormina with smoking Etna in the background and mainland Italy on the horizon. Perfectly designed for long, hot Sicilian summers, the villa offers three large shady terraces surrounded by a beautifully-kept garden with lawns, bougainvillaea and impressive cacti. Lovely antiques decorate the interior, while high ceilings and large openings to the terraces keep ground floor living spaces cool. A collection of terracotta urns and vases lines the pool terrace, where al fresco meals can be served at a long table from a summer kitchen equipped with a barbeque and bread oven. The village of Valverde is within walking distance of the house, and many of Sicily's most beautiful sights are within easy reach.

Clients reviews

It was the owner's home so it was beautifully furnished, had everything you needed, and was wonderfully comfortable. The only problem was that our flight from the UK didn't arrive until the evening (only one flight with BA a day), which meant we came a day earlier in order to get into the villa on our arrival day. The nearest supermarket complex was about a 10 minute drive away and was excellent. There were not many shops in the local village.

We liked Everything! Owner was lovely the house was superb and we were made to feel like guests of the family. The owner even drove our friends to the train station early in the morning. The location is superb and you have the feel of being in a private estate. Furnishings are all superb and eating on the terrace overlooking the pool was superb.

We liked the location, weather, panoramic view with Mt. Etna in clear view and active, the villa was fantastic, grounds, pool, outdoor kitchen and wood burning oven were just what we hoped for in a vacation paradise. The property owners were fantastic. Treated us like family. Emanuela and Mary were wonderful.

All of the outdoor areas were wonderful, especially the pool, the outdoor kitchen and dining areas, and those wondeful. Also, having TV (and cartoons) in English was wonderful with two small children. The caretakers on the property were also great - gave us advice and direction where ever we wanted to go.

Fantastic swimming pool. Great view of Mount Etna and the sea. Great shutters to keep the house cool during the day, and dark at night
