Italy, Sicily, Fiumefreddo di Sicilia
Villa Letizia is an elegant property located nearby the famous beach of Marina di Cottone and just at the bottom of the magnificent Etna volcano. This villa is the ideal place to enjoy an unforgettable and relaxing holiday.
It is surrounded by a beautiful garden (approximately 4500 sqm) with tropical and rare plants, where you can spend pleasant moments swimming in the pool, having sun or making barbeque at the summer kitchen! The owners take care of each detail in the property (for example the stairs that take from the pool to the main entrance of the house are decorated with antique pieces of ceramics). You can admire the famous ceramics outside and inside the house. The property is equipped with a wide range of outdoor furniture to offer guests a comfortable stay, even for large groups of people. An outside bathroom and a shower are at guests’ disposal.The villa consists of three floors but offers two separate entrances – the main part offers a large lounge, a kitchen, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The smaller part of the villa is a basement. It has a big kitchen, 1 bedroom and a bathroom. Both parts are in communication with stairs and at the same time can be separated units with proper entrances.
The main entrance leads directly into an open space with large kitchen in Sicilian country style, important dining table and living room with sofas, armchairs and television. On this ground floor there are also a bathroom fitted with a bath tub, sink, bidet and toilet and a double bedroom! The staircase leads to the first floor where you can admire a spectacular view from the huge terrace: a magnificent Etna and the endless sea, two symbols of Sicily! You can reach the terrace from a cute little living room situated between two bedrooms. Both bedrooms are double and one has slightly sloping roof and another single bed. On this floor, a big elegant bathroom has a shower and a tub.
The basement is reached directly from the swimming pool. The hallway leads into a lounge kitchen fitted with an oven, hob, microwave, a fridge/freezer, and a washing machine. The living is designed as a place where to play billiard and table football. There is a double bedroom with a single bed and a bathroom with a shower.
This wonderful villa is located a kilometer from Fiumefreddo, a beautiful town of Catania-Taormina area. The beach is just 2000 meters away. We are in the eastern side of Sicily, the homeland of Etna volcano (15 km away) with its inactive volcanoes (the sons of Etna), caves, forests, lava grounds. Taormina, known as “the pearl of Sicily”, one of the worldwide masterpieces of beauty is just 10 km away, an evergreen location that has attracted people since the ancient times. Archaeology, myth, a sort of Arab architecture style, amazing landscapes, a blue sea, and such a noble atmosphere, gives Taormina a unique charm. Few kilometers away from the downtown, here it is one of the most beautiful place in the world: Taormina mare (Mazzarò, Spisone, Isolabella), with so many lido (private beaches) where one can enjoy a meal by the sea. Other two great locations (very good for fisheries and beaches), are Letojanni (5 km) and Giardini Naxos (1 km), the latter with the ruins of Naxos, the first Greek settlement in Sicily (VIII b.C.). Last but not least the lively Catania (15 km) with its Piazza Duomo (the heart of Catania) and the Via Etnea, the main street of the town, a pedestrian walking full of shops, cafe’s and wonderful buldings in Baroque style.
Having a breakfast or drinking a cocktail looking towards the Mediterranean Sea is always a magic experience.
