Villa needs updating

  • 2 out of 5
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.

Breathtaking view! Very peaceful!

  • 4 out of 5
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.

Peace and relaxation

  • 4 out of 5
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.

Peaceful place! Highly recommended 4 families!!

  • 5 out of 5
We loved this villa, peaceful, very secluded, with stunning views
over the sea and the unspoilt countryside. The place was ideal for our
children and they enjoyed it so much, it was very safe for them to play
in the garden and in the back lawn. We spent most days at the beach in
Villafranca, so convenient, only 5 minutes drive. The beach is sandy,
water is very warm, we were swimming until 8.30pm and the sun was still
there! The shops and supermarkets in Villafranca are very convenient
and we use to buy the food there and cook it at home. Have a try at the
recommended local shops, meat and fish are excellent and we had a
couple of great barbecues. On the last day, we visited Taormina, such a
gem, with its medieval streets, beautiful shops and bars.
Thank you, Francesco, for being such helpful and nice owner!

What a location!

  • 5 out of 5
A lovely romantic villa (even more beautiful than what expected from the pictures on the website!), it’s like being in the countryside and at the beach at the same time, the house is perfectly located on a peaceful hill and at only a couple of minutes drive from the seaside. The views are absolutely stunning and we enjoyed the most fantastic sunset over the Aeolian Islands, unforgettable! During the day, the possibilities are endless whether you choose the sea (the beaches of Villafranca are 5 minute drive away), the hystorical places or the natural beauties

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.

Notes:
Located at 200 meters above sea level, Villa Anna is immersed in a peaceful open countryside with the fabulous panorama of the northern Sicilian coast. The secluded outside space includes a barbecue area and a wooden pergola (with direct access to the kitchen), which is ideal for al-fresco dining while taking in the breathtaking views across the garden, the countryside and the sea. The front garden, filled with Mediterranean plants and trees, also features a sunny sitting area with spectacular views and dramatic sunset over the Tyrrhenian sea and, on a good day, all seven Aeolian islands can be clearly seen. The surrounding private grounds of over 8000 square meters are filled with olive groves and fruit trees including a vineyard…. there is always fresh fruit to be picked, whatever the season! The estate also produces an excellent olive oil. In October the olives are hand-picked and cold pressed in the old traditional way, our guests are welcome to see the operations first hand!
