Hello friends , my house is located 16 km from the Rifugio Sapienza and 3 km from the center of Nicolosi , on the road leading to Mount Etna . My guests are the people that turn a place into a culture , time and experience in foreign Friends.
“We had a great stay at Alberto! We were greeted very warmly and Alberto told us very good places to eat in Nicolosi. The house is located a little outside Nicolosi, quiet, at the gateway to the Etna Nature Park, which is very nice. We highly recommend this host!”
The accommodation is quiet, surrounded by a green, but also central oasis, close to shops and restaurants. Suitable for couples, even with a child, singles and business travelers. The proximity to the ring road makes the motorway for Palermo, Syracuse, Ragusa and Messina easily accessible. It is an excellent starting point for trips on Etna and for the main tourist resorts of eastern Sicily and for the city of Catania. Perfect for those who love the pool! Guarded parking lot and guardian.
“Claudia was very communicative and helpful throughout the process, as was the housekeeper who checked us in and out. The charm and character of the place is really exceptional, and a small bonus maybe not mentioned elsewhere is the bowl of clementines/oranges provided fresh from the trees on the grounds. Two items for improvement would be the wifi (slow/spotty) and the bed (quite firm), but overall, a very pleasant stay.”
The depandance is located in the historic center of Mascalucia, close to numerous restaurants and a few kilometers from both the Etna park, just 20 minutes away, and from the center of Catania and Taormina. At the same time it is located in a green oasis, inside the park of a historic villa from the early twentieth century. My accommodation is suitable for couples, business travelers and families with children. Recently renovated, it is ready to welcome 4 people. Private parking. Private swimming pool.
“We came to visit my husband’s family in Catania . After stay with family for two days we decided to rent b&b to have our own space . But we didn’t expect that we could find such amazing and beautiful place. There are three b&b studios in villa Maria .The one we stay is a individual guest house beside the garden of the big villa which is built on 1905. This historic villa use to be a winery located at the center of Mascalucia . The villa covers a huge area and there is big garden in the front and back plus swimming pool ( only open in summer)now only open two rooms at ground floor and guest house to the public. But we were lucky the host Claudia took us a tour to visit entire of villa and share the history of her family and about this villa. We feel like we lived in the museum most of the furniture and decorations are from last century but well maintained and cozy . We enjoyed our stay we cooked almost everyday sometimes we cooked at the outdoor kitchen at the garden. The location of the villa is really convenient within 20mins driving we arrive downtown of Catania, the supermarket , bakery , coffee shops are walking distance and there is a little park just in front of villa. But we enjoy more to stay inside the villa and take sunbath . February in Sicily isn’t cold 99% day time is sunny day . We will recommend this place to our friends. But for those tourists who don’t drive Catania city center is more convenient.”
