Early Summer in north east Sicily, overlooking the Aeolian Islands !
We stayed in the pink house half way up the hill. It was just perfect. The property was clean and well maintained. Well stocked kitchen, with utensils etc. Lovely covered eating area outside and brick barbeque. We ate outside all the time. All very rustic.
Beaches 5/7 mins drive away. Villefranche has great local produce, again only 3/5 mins by car.
Francesco, the owner, was really good at pointing us in the direction of the local baker, greengrocer and butcher - so we ate one meal at least per day on the terrace of the Pink house with the fabulous views. The villa has a basketball court too. All such fun - we're booked again this year, taking a couple of friends too.
A cosy country house with a spectacular sea view. Suitable for families or group of friends. If you like relaxation then this house is ideal, you will be immersed in a most peaceful countryside. A 5 minute drive away and you have the beatiful sandy beach of Villafranca. The vills is well equipped with air conditioning and free WiFi connection. The garden is a perfect spot to see the sunset, so at the end of the day you can relax and enjoy the sun setting. The town and beaches are nearby, but you do need a car to stay here.
The house is in a nice location with lovely views to the sea. The villa itself is in need of modernisation. It has a neglected feel to it; furniture and applinaces are all quite old and some areas of the house could be cleaner. There is only Italian TV, no Satellite or DVD player. Wifi is available and works most of the time. The house makes a good base for exploring the area; some attractions are quite a drive away - the best beach is San Gregorio (40 min), Mt Etna (just under 2 hrs), Taormina (about 1 hr). The local village beach is also good and there are some nice restaurants. The owner is very helpful.
Very big, sunny and fully equipped house.
View is breathtaking.
The bedrooms, living room and bathrooms are spacious, comfortable and very clean.
The location is perfect to explore the whole Sycily (better to have a car).
The owner is very kind and helpful.
Perfect place for those looking for calm and interesting excursion
The house was charming, comfortable and so peaceful. It was a delight to come back to the house after a day at the beach and dine on the terrasse in front of spectacular sunsets! The house is ideal for families, everyone will enjoy it. The location was perfect for day trips to either the islands or Taormina. The owner was very nice and helpful.
Villa Anna is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. There are superb views from the villa to both the mountains and the sea. Ideal for a relaxing get-away-from-it-all holiday. Just take a stack of books, get some of the excellent local wine and unwind over a superb brick-built BBQ (but don't forget the mossie repellents). The owner, Francesco, is very helpful.
Villa Anna provides the perfect way to mix countryside and sea. Less than 5 minutes drive (2 km) down the hill are the coastal towns of Villafranca Tirrena, with its sandy beaches, shops and restaurants, and Ortoliuzzo with its beautiful sandy beach. Here you can sunbath or swim in the crystal-clear warm waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea which make swimming pleasant from mid-April through October. The villa is within easy driving distance from the breathtaking sandy beaches of Venetico (15 mins drive), Milazzo (at 25 mins) and Tindari (at 35 mins), with its extraordinary sandy “tongues” (a sandbank stretching 1.5km into the sea which is now a nature reserve). Just past Tindari is the charming seaside resort of Capo d'Orlando, with its magnificent beaches and turquoise waters, while the stunning Aeolian Islands are only a short hop on the hydrofoil from Milazzo, making it ideal for a day trip. On the Ionian side, the world famous beaches of Taormina are 40 mins drive away.
Apart from the beaches there are numerous attractions within easy driving distance of the property including the stunning medieval town of Taormina (40 mins drive), Messina and its Strait (at 20 mins), Tindari, one of the most interesting archaeological sites in Sicily, with its magnificent Sanctuary and Greek-Roman remains (at 35 mins), the Nebrodi nature reserve with its wonderful walking routes and unspoiled hill towns (1 hour drive). Also very easily accomplished are day trips to the charming Cefalù and to Mount Etna volcano, which are a little over 1 hour's drive away. A visit to the small hill-top village of Serro (a fascinating 10mins walk from the property) will give you a unique opportunity to sample rural Sicilian life as it has been lived for centuries.
