About this listing
Situated on a quiet road, the house has been specially designed to unify the indoor and the outdoor. Being of low architectural impact the villa hugs the landscape and is surrounded by wild parkland. The villa has a panoramic view of the Riviera and the coastline from Catania to Siracusa. It is within easy walking distance to the small village of Aci Castello and its adjacent beach. The villa has two double bedrooms, en suite toilet, a shared living space and kitchen.
I live with 2 amazing dogs
This is for a maximum of 4 people. The rooms are well proportioned and spacious, with high ceilings. There are two double bedrooms, one with an en suite and the other with a small toilet. The rooms are separated from the main living space by a connecting door, which leads to an open plan living room and kitchen area. The property has a small vineyard and olive orchard, and thanks to the biodiversity of the site there is always fresh fruits available, which you are more than welcome to pick.
Please note that we have 2 wonderful sweet tempered dogs living here, who are both small in size, called Brownie and Leopolda. They live strictly in the living room and the garden. The house has private parking with an automatic gate, WiFi, a ping pong table and badminton rackets all available for guests use.
On request we can organise trekking with an experienced guide, wine and food tours from our very own vineyards and farms, and barbecues on our terrace. Please contact us for further information.
Please do not worry, all of the beds are prepared, ready made for your stay, along with the towels you shall need. .
You will of course have your own keys. As we also live in the property (in a private room, with its own bathroom upstairs) in the mornings and evenings we should be available. However if were not there we are always reachable by phone, SMS, or . All wines are available for consumption on site.
Interaction with guests
Altough i have a busy schedule i am always happy to socialize with my guests as this is enriching ;-) we have also a quite lively social life and you are welcome to participate with us in events, wine tastings and parties that we often organise or are involved in :-)
Located in the outskirts of Aci Castello village, all major services are available and are within walking distance, including the beach and supermarket, shops, restaurant and other amenities.
Aci Castello is famous for its Norman Castle and is the perfect place to visit Catania, Torimina and Siracusa as well as the surrounding villages like Aci Reale, Acitrezza, and of course Mount Etna. The beach at Acicastello is also famous as the site were Odysseus (hero of Homer's epics the Illiad and Odyssey) escaped from the cyclops Polyphemus.
Although there is a regular bus coming from Catania ( line 534), it is advised that you have a car if you intend to visit around Etna or Siracusa. The city of Catania, and nearby Acicastello, Acitrezza and Acireale are all easily reachable without a car.
Other things to note
There is a summer disco not far from the property, however when all the windows are closed no noise is to be heard. In any case the noise is very tolerable and no problems have so far been reported.
Both Brownie and Leopolda are quite small. Brownie is a mix while Leopolda is a beagle. They have very calm natures and are more concerned with exploring the garden, and sleeping than they are in getting attention.
