3 Bedroom bungalow villa with pool and superb sea views

Located in: Santa Venerina
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 a short drive from all the sights and amenities of eastern Sicily and from 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. 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.

From our guestbook:

" We loved this place. First of all, "set in a lemon grove" isn't just a poetic description. You are in the heart of a working lemon grove, so you will catch the odd glimpse of farm workers setting up sprinklers or pruning trees. The villa itself is superbly well equipped. The cooker, washing machine and dishwasher are as good as the ones I left at home.The out-sized verandah looks a bit weird in the photograph but it's very practical. It provides a lot of welcome shade on a hot day and it's the perfect place to eat in the evening. The pool is great - big and very clean. It is true that the approach road to the villa is narrow. We hired something called a Fiat 500 Tracker and you wouldn't want anything much bigger than this. Best of all, you're surrounded by nature. Dragonflies skim the pool. In the evening, swifts and bats take over. There are Hoopoes, Goldfinches, birds of prey, lizards, geckos, rabbits - and we even saw a giant bullfrog. Pack your binoculars. The location is good, The nearest town ( Santa Venerina) is just 5 minutes in the car ( or half an hour on foot). Here you'll find good pizzerias and fabulous fillet steaks in in the restaurant on the main square. There's a cash point at the Post Office too. We were a little concerned that two of the bedrooms were "outside" the main house. We needn't have been - they are like little chalets complete with full bathroom facilities. It proved to be a very good arrangement. Just make sure that the group's "early riser" takes the house key, last thing at night. Another advantage of the "working farm" is that if you do have any problems ( say, some idiot locks himself out of his bedroom) then help can arrive quickly. Cinzia and her husband will always reply to your call. Because of the uneven steps up to the "exterior" bedrooms, I would not recommend this accommodation to anyone who was partially sighted or unseady on their feet. But for our party of fairly fit 60ish nature lovers, this property was absolutely perfect." ( Graham B. July15th 2017)

"We stayed in the villa for one week with 6 adults and had a wonderful time. It starts with a warm welcome by the owner. The whole villa is spacious and well equipped, not only the kitchen but also the living room with satellite TV and a very good sound installation. The owner had arranged that we could follow all the games of the world championship football in Brazil. Outside we enjoyed the view on the Etna and the sea. It was a perfect place to be."(Wim H. July 26th 2016 )

" We stayed here for the 2 weeks running up to the 2014 Easter weekend. The villa is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The views are lovely, and the villa is not overlooked by any other property - so really gives you a sense of privacy. It is located just over 10 mins from the main Autostrada, so quick to get you on your way for day trips. The manager of the villa is very helpful. We would very happily stay here again. We stayed here with our two children (2 and 5) and we think it's important for potential guests to understand the physical layout of the villa. The two smaller bedrooms are NOT accessible from within the main house. Instead they are individually accessed from an outside terrace, which being 1.5m higher than the main villa level is itself accessed via a set of stone steps. If requested the owner does provide a video baby monitor so you can keep an eye on your children .The swimming pool is lovely, and has a very wide set of steps which provides a great paddling area for small children. There is a Sky HD+ box with movie subscription where English language can be chosen. None of these review points are intended to put you off staying at the villa, and indeed we would definitely stay here again .We just think it's helpful as parents to know in advance exactly what logistical issues you may face - it is a holiday after all!
