Located halfway between Catania and Taormina, near the village of Santa Venerina, this secluded rural retreat is immersed in an evergreen 4,5 acre lemon grove on its own hilltop overlooking the Ionian sea and Europe's biggest volcano with 360-degree stunning views. Completed in 2011, Villa la Quercia is an ideal base for relaxing in the privacy of your own villa, with a large infinity pool surrounded by lawns and terraced lemon groves, yet being close to all the sights and amenities of eastern Sicily and to the beach. A large, shady terrace and pleasant afternoon breezes invite al fresco living, while a hammock strung between lemon trees and swaying olive trees provide the ideal backdrop for restorative snoozes, lounging by the pool and long moonlit dinners accompanied by the sounds of the...Located halfway between Catania and Taormina, near the village of Santa Venerina, this secluded rural retreat is immersed in an evergreen 4,5 acre lemon grove on its own hilltop overlooking the Ionian sea and Europe's biggest volcano with 360-degree stunning views. Completed in 2011, Villa la Quercia is an ideal base for relaxing in the privacy of your own villa, with a large infinity pool surrounded by lawns and terraced lemon groves, yet being close to all the sights and amenities of eastern Sicily and to the beach. A large, shady terrace and pleasant afternoon breezes invite al fresco living, while a hammock strung between lemon trees and swaying olive trees provide the ideal backdrop for restorative snoozes, lounging by the pool and long moonlit dinners accompanied by the sounds of the countryside. Stylish and modern comfortable interiors and a well organised open-plan indoor living area make this an ideal choice for the height of summer as well as the rest of the year, including the mild Sicilian winter, when the fireplace and central heating will add comfort and atmosphere. The three ensuite bedrooms work perfectly for families travelling together or a group of friends, while the villa at the same time is a wonderful romantic retreat for a couple.The villa can sleep 6 adults and two children or another adult in a folding bed. All bedrooms have separate entrances through big double doors, with sea and pool views : the master bedroom is connected with the rest of the house while the two guests rooms are not accessible from within the main house, they are individually accessed from outside, please see the ENCLOSED FLOOR PLAN.The pool has no fence or security cover so it is permanently accessible from the garden and patio, but it has a wide set of steps which provides a great paddling area for children. All bedrooms and bathrooms are large, light and airy with double wardrobes, high ceilings, individual air conditioning and large glass-enclosed showers. The villa is very well equipped and furnished for all-year living, with comfortable and ample dining and seating for all guests, and offers flatscreen TV, satellite TV with dual language Sky film channels (in Italian and English), wifi and broadband internet (unlimited 20mbps), hifi and radio, iPod docking station, fridge-freezer, separate fridge for drinks, dishwasher, gas stove, electric oven, microwave oven, kettle, toaster, washing machine and tumble dryer.
